Super Easy Homemade Kettle Corn Recipe

Easy Old Fashioned Kettle Corn Recipe AND a little secret!

Ingredients:

  • Large Pan – well this isn’t really an ingredient..
  • Cooking Oil – I like to use Coconut Oil, but you can use any kind you prefer
  • Popcorn Kernels
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Food Flavorings (optional)

Directions:

Put enough Cooking Oil into your Large pan to cover the bottom about 1/8 of an inch.  If using Coconut Oil..it melts and measures to the exact amount as other cooking oils.  Heat up..

You will know when it’s hot enough for popping when you drop one kernel in and it starts to sizzle

Then cover bottom of pan with ONE layer of Popcorn Kernels.

Now pour in Sugar..Now this is a personal preference.  I was making Kettle Corn for Littles  so I didn’t add much sugar..about 1 tsp.  But you can add up to a Tablespoon for a Medium Large Pan. 

Then stir so that Sugar is evenly distributed

Now put the lid on and let it Pop.  I really don’t do the shake, shake..I just let it pop and maybe lift the pot up toward the end of popping and shake it a couple of times..then I set it back down and let it finish popping..

Did you know that you can also make FLAVORED popcorn?  Yep!  All you do is to put 1/4 – 1/2 tsp.of any kind of  flavoring  you want (food flavoring not essential oils) in with the Cooking Oil before heating.  Here again this is a preference on how much flavoring and what kind.

WARNING:  Make sure you put the flavoring in the Cooking Oil while it is still cold!  Otherwise it will be like pouring cold water into hot oil!  OUCH!
