Homemade Kettle Corn
1/4 cup oil (I've used vegetable and light olive oil. Both work fine)
1/2 cup corn kernels
1/4 white sugar
1. Have everything ready before you begin. Measure your corn and sugar and put into a bowl. Pull out a large pot with a lid (I always use my 8 quart. Do not use a dutch oven), two oven mitts, a wooden spoon, a large bowl to pour popped corn into, and salt.
2. Pour your oil into your pot, add 3 corn kernels, cover, and heat over medium-high heat.
3. Once the 3 kernels have popped, add the rest of your corn kernels and sugar. Mix well and cover.
*Please do not add extra sugar when making this. After your kitchen fills with smoke and your pot is filled with burnt sugar...you will not like me anymore. Just don't do it.
*This recipe takes practice to get the hang of when to shake your pot and when to let it sit. Just listen to your kernels and judge by how quickly they're popping.
*After I've salted my kettle corn I like to fill my pot with soapy suds. It makes clean up a breeze!
