Hey everyone - Happy Foodie Friday! Please join Michael for other - much more figure friendly - recipes!
I found this recipe on joythebaker.com around the 4th of July last year, I know I owe at least a pound or two(?) to it! Love it, and make it more often than I'd care to admit! Once again I'll post it as I found it and show my "lighter?" version.
Homemade Kettle Corn
1/2 C popcorn - I use less than 1/4 C
1/4 C vegetable or grapeseed oil - I use less than 1 Tblsp
3 Tblsp sugar - I use less than 1 Tblsp
Salt to taste. 1/2 - 1 tsp. - I sprinkle some on after it's in the bowl
You can find Joy's directions (which I highly recommend) on the link above. Here's what I do:
I have 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 I 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 few 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!)
I hope you love it as much as I do!
