Paper Bag Popcorn Method:
Step One: Measure 1/4 cup popcorn kernels into a lunchbox-sized paper bag.
Step Two: Loosely fold just the very top of the bag over so the kernels don't spill out.
Step Three: Microwave until there are more than 3 seconds between popping sounds. ...
Step Four: Carefully remove bag and enjoy!
We don't use tape or staples... just a couple folds at the top.
We also have a contraption similar to what Janet posted... but much older. DH brought it to the marriage. I prefer when DS uses the paper bag method because no washing up after.
As far as coconut oil and the health risks... I guess it depends on your cholesterol levels. Like butter it's a saturated fat... so it should be used in moderation. But it also has something in it that boosts the good HDL.
