  • Pour half the popcorn (1/3 cup) into a brown paper lunch sack. Fold the top of the bag over twice to keep in the kernels.
  • Cook in the microwave at full power for 2 ½ to 3 minutes or until you hear pauses of about 2 seconds between pops.
  • Carefully open the bag and pour into a serving bowl. Repeat with remaining kernels.
  • Melt butter and drizzle over the popcorn; sprinkle on salt to taste. Toss to evenly coat.
  • Serve immediately.
