Kettle Corn


Our middle daughter loves Kettle Corn and always wants us to get some when we're at a fair or festival. Here's a recipe to try at home that is pretty good and very easy. We use a Whirley Pop Cooker, but you can use a large kettle with a lid as well, shaking often.

3 teaspoons butter-flavored oil
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup yellow popcorn kernels

Have ready a large bowl to place popcorn in when it is done cooking. In small bowl, combine sugars, salt, and popcorn kernels. Add oil to kettle. Heat on medium-high flame and add 3 kernels to test for the right temperature. When it pops, quickly add sugar and kernel mixture. Replace lid and start turning until kernels are almost done popping. Transfer popcorn to a large bowl. Sprinkle with more salt if desired.
