I usually buy the pre-flavoured microwave packs but three things lead me to popping my own -
1. The demise of our microwave!
2. The calories and additives in the microwave packs
3. The lack of flavours
So for father's day for my husband I kindly bought him some popping kernels and some retro popcorn boxes and tonight we popped our first batch!
All you need is some popping kernels - Asda sell 1kg bags for £2.50. A big pan with a lid and a little oil.
We used half a cup kernels and 1tbsp of oil and it made a whole pan full!
We added butter and salt to ours but I'm looking forward to trying some more interesting flavours!
