Brown Paper Bag Lemon Popcorn

My daughter favorite food in the whole world is popcorn.  Really, she eats her favorite food for breakfast, lunch, dinner and several snacks during the day.  Honestly if I would let her that all she would ever eat, but since she is he size of a bean pole I make her eat other meals.  This recipe is one of her favorites and so much healthier than the store-bought microwave popcorn.  Please make sure to follow the directions and stand right beside the microwave because it has a tenancy to burn.

  1. Pour kernels into bottom of paper bag. Combine lemon essential oil sunflower oil, and pour over kernels. Fold the paper bag 3 times but make sure the fold are thin and tight. You want to leave enough room to let the kernels pop out.
  2. Put the bag into the microwave and cook for 2-3 minutes or just push the “popcorn” button. Make sure you stand by the microwave to listen for when the kernels stop popping. You don’t want burnt popcorn.
  3. Pour out into a big bowl (be careful it is VERY hot) and season with the Himalayan pink salt for taste.
