I used to do this all the time and forgot all about it till I stumbled across this on SP. I put just a little spray butter on it after it's popped and then some Jamican Jerk seasoning. I never put salt on it, I never put salt in or on anything! Anyway this is supper yummy! Submitted by:

I LOVE this recipe. It's easy, it's REALLY cheap, and you get a whole lot of popcorn for not very many calories. Plus if it's a little boring by itself, there are tons of ways you can spice it up. Frankly I feel it's perfect just plan. Enough for me to munch on happily for a half hour. Submitted by:

It tastes much better with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix the oil, salt, and popcorn together, throw into bag, and pop in microwave until 2 or more seconds pass between "pops". Delicious snack. Submitted by:

I love this idea! A great snack without all the salt and butter. I will definitely try this when I get home! Submitted by:

Excellent suggestion! I am a popcorn addict. The brown bag way is the easiest and healthiest method to enjoy popcorn, no sodium. I like spraying nonfat, soy oil base butter on the popcorn with a dash of seasoning. Yum! Submitted by:

I just made this and it is fantastic. I used 5 tbls. of popcorn, gave them a quick spray of cooking spray before popping and then adding another quick spray and salt after. What a great alternative to spending $9 on a box of bagged microwave popcorn! I'm exciting about experimenting with toppings! Submitted by:

I LOVE popcorn - so have been putting up with the grossness of microwaved "100 calorie packs"... I'm going to get a microwave popper and try that instead. Thanks so much! Submitted by:

I so didn't think this was going to work but it does!! It's the only way I do popcorn now. I put spray butter or seasoning salt on mine. If others like buttery popcorn, that can be added to theirs only. It's a great, NATURAL way of enjoying popcorn! :o) Submitted by:

This is such a great idea, and so easy! It's awesome with a little popcorn salt and splenda for a kettle corn flavor. Submitted by:

I finally tried this and now have everyone in the family trying it. Just like air-popped! I love the lack of sodium. I pre-spray the kernels with a tiny bit a PAM - it makes all of them pop, no old maids. Submitted by:

I have been making this like everyday except I use a 1/4 tsp of kernel's white cheddar seasoning instead of the salt. AMAZING! Submitted by:

Loved it! Great taste and it isn't greasy or too salty.Cheaper than micro bags. Easy to do. I will never buy microwave popcorn again. Submitted by:

I can't believe it's so simple! I live outside the US, and the only popcorn I can find is too salty or fatty, and I just burned a small batch trying to cook popcorn on the stove. It's worth a try. Submitted by:

Wow I was so impressed this actually worked! I followed the 3 tbls directions on my popcorn container and it made a little too much for the bag. I'm hit or miss with the butter spray-- I'd be happy with just salt but I will def. make this again! Submitted by:

Very cool recipe! 1/8 cup just wasn't quite enough to satisfy my crunch craving though. Great with seasoned salt! Submitted by:

I love air-popped popcorn. Another healthier alternative is to use a Sugar paper bag (eg. a 1 kg/ 500 g Hullets bag). Only put the unpopped popcorn in there (2 or 3 tablespoons) and close/fold the bag. Microwave for 150 - 180 secondes. Submitted by:
