When I recently realised that microwave popcorn from a bag was filled with chemicals, I immediately stopped letting my children eat it. Studies have shown that microwave popcorn bags breaks down when heated into a substance called perfluorooctanoic (PFOA) which the Environmental Protection Agency has identified as a “likely carcinogen.”. I try to also steer clear of the microwave as radiation can also be really damaging to your health. My homemade popcorn has been a hit with my kids ever since! No sugar and no chemicals but a savoury treat for them to munch on whilst we watch out favourite movie.
1 dl of organic popping corn
2 tbsp organic canola oil

Add the oil to a non-stick pan to coat the kernals

It will speak to you throughout, once it’s stopped that means it’s done!
Transfer to bowl and toss with salt.
