Crave: Kettle Corn


{via}

Sweet and salty is one of my favorite flavor combos. Typical girl. French fries in my milkshake. Potato Chips with chocolate chips. It's all good.

Daniel and I like to make a big bowl of these fluffy kernels on a regular basis. Tag team style.
He shakes the pot for me, and I supervise. Sometimes sports are on, ok, usually sports are on, and he gets a little sidetracked, so the shaking can easily transform into...no shaking. And burning.
Silly boy.



Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels

Directions

Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, stir in the sugar and popcorn. Cover, and shake the pot constantly to keep the sugar from burning. 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.Sprinkle with salt (to your taste preference). Enjoy!

dang girl, i love me some kettle corn! it's a crave that shows up practically on a daily basis. did you see Mandi's uber cute take on it: here, it's awesome too!

cheers to many more handfuls. ♥

Kelly said...

Absolutely craving this right now. Typing quickly so that I can go pop a bag. Only because I don't have kernels right this moment. But I will have to try this soon!

my mind's eye said...

best sweet/salty combo is pretzels in vanilla ice cream. forget the spoon, just scoop up the ice cream with the pretzel! Made. By. God. Himself. ♥

Shalyn said...

Homemade? GENIUS! Thanks for this!

My huz and I dedicated a pot to carmel corn making because we got sick of cleaning up the sugary mess. I guess that also means we were making a lot... we were. i add a pinch of salt to mine to kick up the sweet/salty factor. And also sometimes mix white and brown sugar, they produce two distinct tastes. Also, to test the oil, i throw a few kernels in when I start the oil and when they pop, it means it's time to get cooking.
