Ingredients (Serves 5)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar (see substitutes for different flavors)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
In a large heavy bottomed pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add 3 popcorn kernels. Once the kernels pop, add the sugar and salt. After the sugar and salt dissolve add the remaining popcorn kernels. Cover the pot.
To avoid burning the kettle corn follow the 3-second-shake-and-wait method:
Leave the pot on the burner for 3 seconds, then remove it and shake it. Return to burner for another 3 seconds and repeat this process until the popping has slowed to once every 2 - 3 seconds.
Pour into a large bowl. Stir occasionally while cooling to break up clumps.
Substitutions and Additions
Using white sugar creates a popcorn ball flavor. Substitute brown sugar for a carmel corn flavor. Cinnamon tastes great in this recipe too!
