So quickly we forget!
Prior to Christmas I found an awesome caramel corn recipe and made it the first time with a microwave bag of popcorn.
After that first time and how yummy it was I determined I needed to find a different way to pop popcorn.
Then i went back in my memory banks and recalled a time when there was no microwave and we have a big metal contraption to pop the popcorn and corn came in a bag… Oh yeah.
I did some research and to my joy I found one could pop popcorn in the microwave without a brown paper bag nor oil! Woohoo!
Basically you get 2 soup bowls, shift then just a tiny bit so the steam can escape, pop it in the microwave for 3 minutes and 45 second for 2 tablespoons of kernels and whala – you have a bowl almost fully popped! Sweet!
It was just a sad state that we had come so far as to forget how to pop popcorn… Didn’t the pilgrims and native americans do it ages ago, over an open fire even…
Technology just might kill us!
