  • ½ cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • chopped leaves from 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • brown paper bag


  • Combine popcorn kernels, olive oil, rosemary, sea salt, and pepper in the brown paper bag.
  • Fold over the top of the bag and crumple up the edges so that the bag will stay shut in the microwave. I've heard of people using a single staple to do this, but I'm pretty sure putting anything metal ( no matter how tiny ) in the microwave will result in the immediate nuclear demise of the entire world, so I refuse to try that method -- you know, for the children.
  • Shake the bag to coat the kernels in the oil and flavoring. The bag will look gross and oily, but don't worry! Your popcorn will not taste as greasy as the bag looks!
  • Pop for 3 minutes ( or until there are 3 seconds between popping noises )
