Cover with a good lid. Shake the pan over the heat while the popcorn pops. When the popping stops, remove the pan from the heat. Immediately pour the hot popcorn into a bowl. Try to remove any oldmaids with a spoon or fork. The popcorn will be hot and sticky so be very careful not to burn yourself. The popcorn should be lightly coated with a beautiful amber caramel. Salt the kettle corn to taste and serve to thankful recipients. Makes a large bowlful. Tastes best late at night while watching a scary movie with friends and family.

    Oh boy! I like kettle corn considerably I make the yummy stuff at fairs as well as craft shows. The key I’ve learned when making it at your home is to Blend it while it’s popping and not shake it about, you’ll just burn it!
