There. The secret is out .
But backing up a snatch, let me start with confessing that I find the spirit of microwave popcorn to be quite off-putting. The stuff that comes in the pre-measured, pre-sealed bags – hate it. I blame my first base job, where I had the cell by the office microwave. I did wield, at that subcontract, to stay out of the escalating bicker between the woman who would microwave pisces and the womanhood who would try to mask that smack with Lysol – aren ’ t zany colleagues fun ? – despite my front-row seat, but microwave popcorn has always been besides potent for me. Maybe it even goes back to my college dormitory. possibly even the beginning of clock time .
I like the taste of popcorn, and love that it can be an slowly solid grain nosh, but that thick, buttery, bogus microwave smell is such a turnoff. So few foods have that consequence on me that I generally follow my instincts and I don ’ thymine gratify. That ’ s not what food that is good for you should smell like !

Kettle Corn-5 And kettle corn, a nosh that is both angelic ( from sugar ) and piquant ( from salt ), seemed to me like a good way to go and make a healthy bite unhealthy. At the farmer ’ randomness market by my shape, which you may recall from my Breakfast Brownies post, there is a kettle hole corn seller, and people stand in a channel that stretches around the market for a fresh bag – or bucket. federal politics personnel are always walking around with painter ’ sulfur buckets full of the stuff. Those not carrying a bucket will see a bucket around the office and say “ SHOOT ! I missed the kettle corn guy on Friday ! ” – no fail. That ’ s the reaction the buckets elicit. And I will eat it handful over handful when it ’ randomness offered to me, don ’ triiodothyronine get me wrong, but I can ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate imagine how much carbohydrate they put in it to make it thus addictive .
That ’ mho why I was so thrilled by the results when I last decided to try to microwave popcorn in a plain honest-to-god lunch bag .
Kettle Corn I had seen the paper bag peak online a handful of times, but never got around to trying it. Finding a recipe for microwave kettle corn was the push I needed. And three minutes later… Kettle Corn-3
… four cups of hot, light, fresh, piquant, fresh kettle corn. Kettle Corn-4 Just mix the few ingredients together in a bowl and be sure to coat all of the kernels, pour it into a brown paper lunch pocket, fold it over a few times, and pop it in the microwave. Like with all microwave popcorn, wait until the pop merely starts to slow down to remove the bag from the microwave – if you wait until the pop stops, you will more likely than not scorch the heck out of your bite .
This Kettle Corn is equitable the right balance wheel of slightly piquant and slenderly sweetness to serve as the perfect Netflix or OnDemand bust series nosh, with no regrets. I mean, other than regretting where your day has gone.
