Hope you love it if you try it:@)Homemade Kettle Corn
1/2 C popcorn - I use 1/4 C
1/4 C vegetable or grapeseed oil - I use 1 Tblsp
3 Tblsp sugar - I use 1 Tblsp
Salt to taste. 1/2 - 1 tsp. - I sprinkle some on after it's in the bowl
For my half batch, using a 2 1/2 qt pan with a pasta lid (the holes let the steam out), I heat it on medium heat with three corn kernels and the oil, when one pops add the rest of the corn and the sugar. Shake vigorously. Pick up and shake occasionally until the popping slows down, pour into a bowl and sprinkle with salt. It will take a couple minutes for the sugar to harden up.
Joy's recipe makes 8-10 cups - I've never measured mine but like to think it makes one serving (ok - maybe two servings!)
Be careful, melted sugar is very hot and sometimes a kernel will pop outside of the pot.
Y'All get your butter ready...
