Kettle corn is a great summer snack and it's quick and easy to make at home! I love kettle corn for its sweet-and-salty taste. But, better yet, it tends to have less fat and sodium than other flavored popcorns. So, grab some vegetable oil, white sugar, and unpopped popcorn kernels and you're well on your way to enjoying this delicious treat.
1. Cover the bottom of a high-sided pot or kettle with vegetable oil and place on medium heat. Put 3 kernels in the pot. When they pop, the vegetable oil is hot enough for the rest of the batch.
2. Remove the 3 pieces of popcorn and add the sugar (about 1/4 cup for evey 1/2 cup of unpopped kernels) to the pot. Stir the pot and when the sugar melts, add the rest of the popcorn. Don't forget to put on the lid!
3. Shake the pot constantly to prevent the sugar from burning. When the popping slows to almost nothing, remove the pot from the heat and pour into a large bowl.
4. If you like, add salt, making sure that it mixes with all of the popcorn.
5. Let cool and enjoy!
