The popularity of microwave popcorn boggles my mind.
Why would one choose to spend more money, increase packaging waste and eat artificial flavors when the natural option saves money, reduces packaging waste, has no artificial ingredients and tastes better?!?
We all love to snack – especially kids. So in our house, we regularly use our hot air popcorn popper to indulge our cravings, while having a healthy, natural snack.
I purchase a bulk sized container of hot air popping corn and it lasts us months! My kids, especially my two year old, love the excitement of the popping corn and the smell that permeates the house.
After it is popped, I add a bit of melted Olive Oil margarine and a sprinkle of salt (not too much of course!) and we curl up on the couch for a popcorn party.
If your family is in the habit of eating potato chips, why not switch to popcorn to satisfy them? And if you have been using the microwave to pop your corn, this Year, break free and use a hot air popper.
And here is a popcorn popping tip from a veteran popcorn popper:
If you find your popcorn maker sends popcorn bouncing right out of the bowl and all over your kitchen, grab a tea towel and hold it loosely around the popper and bowl. Much less mess – but don’t hold it too close. That air is hot!
