OH MY! SO excited. Have ALWAYS loved Kettle Corn, never thought to myself you could actually make it at home! :) Totally stole the idea from a dear friend (practically family now) of mine who said she tried it tonight and I am now posting what I tried! Literally, I saw her post about 1 1/2 hrs ago and have already tried and sampled and succeeded at making Kettle Corn! Um.....kinda wish now I wouldn't have discovered it because it's so good I hope it doesn't hurt me in the temptation department too much! :)
1/4 c vegetable oil
1/4 c white sugar
1/2 c popcorn kernels
Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat with three kernels to test when the oil is hot enough. Once hot, stir in the sugar and popcorn. Cover, and shake the pot constantly to keep the sugar from burning. I did 3 seconds on the stove, 3 seconds shaking the corn, in a repetitive cycle. If not, IT WILL BURN. Once the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and continue to shake for a few minutes until the popping has stopped. Pour into a large bowl, and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps.
