Homemade Kettle Corn

kettlecorn

Make your own popcorn with a simple recipe for kettle corn just like the State Fairs from Alice Currah of Savory Sweet Life. See the full post at Kitchen Explorers.

Prep time: 3 Minutes

Cook time: 5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the popcorn and sugar. Give the kernels a quick stir and then cover with a lid.
  2. Once the popcorn starts popping, carefully pick the pot up and give it a quick shake every few seconds until the popping slows down, between 3-4 minutes. Remove immediately from the heat and pour the kettle corn into a large bowl.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately. Do not make the mistake of removing the pot from heat without transferring to a bowl. Due to the high heat of the pot, if you don’t transfer the popcorn it will caramelize and perhaps burn.
