On one of the cooking shows someone explained how to make home made popcorn in a brown paper bag in your microwave. Does anyone remember this or know how to do it. I can't afford to but a popper and I don't want to shake it on my stove top range

You've pretty answered your on question Goodgiver. Just put plain popcorn, about 1/4 cup, no oil or butter in a paper bag. Microwave on high till popcorn slows popping to 2 or 3 seconds between pops. Dump and add you're favorite seasoning or butter and enjoy. Without the seasoning it will taste like hot air popcorn, plain.

hey, i did that too, except i have a popper now, i was just gonna say if you do add butter, make sure you add a bit of salt unless of course you like butter that much then do what you want, i just reckon the salt part makes it a bit like cinema popcorn
