How to make homemade kettle corn
You will need:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup un-popped popcorn kernels
1/2 teaspoon salt ( I use Kosher salt)
Homemade Kettle Corn Recipe
Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat, along with three kernels of popcorn. Once the three kernels pop, add in the rest of the popcorn and the sugar. Place a lid on the pot. Alternate, in three second intervals, between leaving the pan on the stove top and lifting and shaking the pot to keep the sugar from burning. Once the popping has slowed, remove the pot from the heat and pour into a large bowl, sprinkle with salt and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps.
The sugar will burn very easily, so keep the popcorn moving while it is popping, remove it from the heat when the popping slows and pour it quickly into a bowl so it doesn’t sit in the hot pot.
