Kettle Corn

  • 1/3 cup corn oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • Salt to taste

Over a medium-high flame, heat the corn oil in the bottom of a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Sprinkle in 2 or 3 popcorn kernels. When the kernels pop add the sugar, and then the remaining popcorn. 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.

  1. thanks the kettle corn turned out great

  2. Alexandra says:

    We love this stuff. Be prepared to make more than one batch!

  3. I pop this stuff at festivals and craft fairs. The trick on doing on a stove is to STIR the stuff, not just shake it. You’ll have to crack the lid to pull this off.

  4. 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!

  5. This is hands-down the BEST kettle corn EVER!! Nothing else even comes close. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  6. I’ve made a similar recipe in the past, but not with these exact proportions. I look forward to giving it a try.

    Thanks for sharing!
