    It is hard to believe that we have to pay so much for microwave popcorn when it is cheaper and just as easy and healthier to make it yourself the old fashioned way.

    Serves: 4 

    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 3 tablespoons margarine
    • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
    • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt, or to taste

    Preparation:3min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:8min 

    1. Start by cutting a brown paper bag in half. This will serve as a makeshift serving bowl and it will absorb excess oil.
    2. In a 1.25 litre saucepan, combine the oil, margarine and popcorn. Set over high heat, constantly shake the pan back and forth. After the first kernel of corn pops, place the lid on the pan and continue shaking.
    3. When the popcorn starts to lift the lid up off the pan, remove it from the heat, and hold it over the paper bag until it stops popping.
    4. Pour into the paper bag and season with half of the seasoned salt. Shake the paper bag to distribute the salt. Taste before adding more so you don't make it too salty. You can always add more salt.
