Natural Microwave Popcorn
Place 1/4 cup corn kernels into a small paper lunch bag and fold over top 2 times to seal. Place in microwave on high for about 3 minutes or on Popcorn setting. Once you stop hearing the popping, it's done. Dump into a large bowl and spray with EVOO and sprinkle with sea salt. ENJOY!!
