When I am in the grocery store if I know something that will help another I will tell them as the lady who was buying fresh fruit and vegetables. I let her know about the green bags and how they do work. If you put bananas in a green bag, a brown bag do not close put in cool place away from sun.
I do this and also my romaine lettuce put a paper towel around it and in a green bag, leave open and put in refrig and it will last 2 weeks or more. I save a lot of money with the green bags and you can use them over several time. I use them with all my fresh foods. Try the green bags.
Does popping kernels of corn in a brown bag actually work? YOU BETCHA! I put 2.5 tbs in a brown sack, fold, fold, fold, squeeze the fold and then microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. (Listen for the pops) No oil, no butter and today I topped it with feta and smoked paprika. For this popcorn junky this trick is a winner!
You can always use spray butter if you like. As a recovering butter-holic, spray butter seems to do the trick.
How many places have you read that you can take a lunch sack and popcorn kernals and make your own DIY microwave popcorn? I never believed it - but it's true! Kernals in a brown bag, fold the top a few times and pop for about 2.5 minutes - today I topped mine with feta and smoked paprika! YUM!
... no oil, no butter (but you can use spray butter)
