Kettle Corn

Hey everyone! I had a craving for something a little sweet (yea, imagine) and thought I'd re-post this recipe for Kettle Corn before it gets too humid to enjoy it! I found it on Joythebaker.com.
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...

  16. YUM! We are just about over Microwave popcorn... my adult kids marveled the other day when I whipped up a batch the 'regular' way, in a pan on the stove! All the meals they have woofed down with no comment and THAT's what it took to impress them!

  17. I am so glad you posted this. Joe makes popcorn on the gas stove every nite but I was not sure how to make Kettle Corn and I love it. It is forbidden to microwave popcorn here!

  18. mmmm...reminds me of the antique market we visit in the summer, and the harvest festival in the fall. LOVE kettle corn!

  19. So easy...who have thought! I am taking care of 6 grands for the next 10 days and need quantity, so this a delicious fit for me. Thanks Lynn.

    PS I see pig things everywhere and think of you, watering cans yesterday!

  20. I love good kettle corn, the sweet with the salty. Nom, nom, nom. I have been known to have popcorn for supper. Shhhh,. don't tell people this.

  21. I've never made this myself...didn't realize you just put the sugar in there with it. I'll do this, I love kettle corn.
