Kettle Corn

Submitted by: TRIVIA42

Introduction

Just like at the Fair! Just like at the Fair!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/2 c. vegetable oil
    1/2 c. white sugar
    1 c. popcorn kernels

Directions

This only works if you have an oil popper with a stir stick. Do Not Try this on the Stovetop or with other methods.

Pre-measure popcorn and sugar into small bowls.
Add oil to popper and let stir stick coat bottom of popper.
Add Sugar to popper and let slightly dissolve and coat the bottom of the popper.
Add kernels.
Listen for popping to slow.
Once popping has slowed to 4-5 seconds between pops, remove popcorn from popper. If you wait too long, sugar and popcorn could scorch and burn.
Let sit 1-2 minutes and salt to taste. Stir. Enjoy.

Makes 4-5 cups

Number of Servings: 4

  • Sure tastes good, but I definitely don't need 28 grams of fat! When I make it I air-pop, spray the popped corn w/Pam then sprinkle the sugar and a little salt on it. Saves a LOT of calories. - 4/25/11

  • This is delicious! The key is waiting until the oil is hot enough and adding the kernels/sugar together. I will say though that it works just as well with less oil. I just use enough to cover the bottom of the pot, maybe just under 1/8 cup and it tastes just as good with much less fat! - 9/22/10

  • It actually DOES work on the stovetop if you partly dissolve the sugar in the oil first, and then be sure to keep the pan moving over the heat back and forth and hold onto the lid while it pops. - 7/9/08

  • This is so good and worth the calories when you need something crunchy and sweet and salty - 3/25/08
