I read the ingredients label on a bag of microwaved popcorn yesterday.  That was a mistake.

Once you know what you’re putting into your (and your kid’s) body, it kind of makes you re-think some of the Bags Of Yellow Death, as The Todd calls them.  Here’s a wonderful tutorial on making homemade microwave popcorn–much cheaper and a trillion times healthier than the store bought stuff.  This tutorial comes to you courtesy of SquakFox.com

Fold the bag over twice. Don’t use staples to secure the bag — this might spark in your microwave.

Step Three: Pop in microwave

Stick the popcorn bag into your microwave. I set mine for 3 minutes on high.

Popping Tip: Stop the microwave when the popping slows to one to two pops per second. You don’t want to burn your tasty snack.

Step Four: Add gourmet topping

A pinch of salt with a dab of butter is the most popular way to eat popcorn.

Try these toppings for some gourmet popcorn:

  • Mexican: Add chili powder, hot sauce, and salt.
  • Kiss My Breath: Shake in onion powder and garlic powder — hold the kiss.
  • Cheese Please: Mix in Parmesan cheese with a little salt.
  • Sweet Tooth: A dash of cinnamon, a sprinkle of sugar, and a topper of honey. Now that’s money.
  • Classic: A shake of salt with a pat of butter.
