Homemade Kettle Corn
When you first walk into a carnival not only do you take in all of the colors and sights, but you can’t help but take in the smell of freshly popped kettle corn. If the carnival hasn’t come to your town yet, or you haven’t had a chance to make it there, give yourself the feeling of being at the carnival by making your very own homemade kettle corn. I found this recipe on SavorySweetLife.com – it seems simple enough and certainly delicious!
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add popcorn and sugar giving it a quick stir and then cover with lid. Once popcorn starts popping, pick it up and give it a quick shake every few seconds until popping slows down, between 3-4 minutes. Remove immediately from heat and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately. Do not make the mistake of removing the pot from heat without transferring to a bowl. Due to the high heat of the pot, if you don’t transfer the popcorn it will caramelize and perhaps burn.
What’s your favorite thing to eat at the carnival?
