Our last place came with a built in microwave, but unfortunately our new apartment does not. We’re kind of in limbo in deciding if we’d like to buy a microwave for this place, or just try to live without one. It may be a healthier choice to not have one, but it cuts down on some of the conveniences. Especially in regards to reheating leftovers and preventing extra dishes from getting dirtied.
Regardless, we are currently microwave-less. Michael and I watch quite a lot of movies, and I like to have some popcorn to enjoy while watching. I’m all for the traditional way to make popcorn, and prefer it. But sometimes microwave popcorn is just easier, and requires less attention, so that’s what we buy!
So what do you do when you have no microwave and only have packets of microwaveable popcorn?
It works exactly the same as making popcorn from scratch (it IS making popcorn from scratch). All you have to do is cut open the package, pour it into a lidded pot (preferably with a heavy bottom to avoid burning), heat and shake shake away.
Once the popping stops you’re done!
I then season mine a with some salt and fresh cracked pepper. Mmmmm!!
