When we go to the fair in the fall and the spring every year, I get kettle corn. I love kettle corn. The first time I ever had kettle corn was at the River Market in Kansas City. I just can’t get enough of it. The Hardworking Husband knows I love it and occasionally finds it in his travels for work and will bring home a bag for me.
We were over at a friend’s house on New Years Day. She had made microwave kettle corn. It was pretty good. When we got home, The Hardworking Husband wanted more. So I decided to figure out how to make it. My first attempt I burned it. I didn’t have enough oil. The second try was perfect. I must say though the sugar didn’t work how I thought it would. It clumps up some. But it works out in the end, so don’t be surprised when it clumps.
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 1/4 cup sugar
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium pot, heat oil at medium heat. Add two kernels. Once those kernels pop add sugar and stir to mix. Add remain popcorn kernels.
Once it starts popping cover and shake over burner. When the popping slows to 1 pop every 3-4 seconds, remove from heat and pour our on the sheet pan. Allow to cool and enjoy.
The sugar is very hot when it comes out of the pan. Be very careful.
This recipe is very similar to my stovetop popcorn with coconut oil and sea salt. If you are wanting something a bit healthier check it out.
And if you live near or in Kansas City metro area, do yourself a favor and go to the River Market. Other than the people of Kansas City, it is my favorite thing there. I loved picking lemons for cheap and carrot cake from the Amish people who came to sell their wares. Oh how I wish we had a market so big and wonderful here.
