Is it raining out?? Are the kids haunting you for snacks and you just don't know what to make them?? Well look no farther! I have a recipe that not only will your kids love, but you will too!
Don't have kids, No problem!! This is great for a movie, or just lounging around the house type of day!
Here's what you'll need:
- Oil (Enough to cover the kernels about halfway)
- Popcorn Kernels (Remember this stuff expands to about 45 times its un-popped size)
- Sugar (1 Tablespoon)
- Salt (To taste)
- A pot WITH a lid (1)
Follow these simple steps and you'll be on your way to stuffing your face with this awesome kettle corn. (Don't worry, we don't judge.. Simply because we do it too :-)
In a large pot pour in some oil just a little bit more than whats needed to coat the bottom. Next dump in the sugar! I use a few tablespoons (at the max!) I find that to generally be sufficient. Now, the amount of pop corn you want to make will vary. For 2 people, I generally find that 1/2 c is PLENTY. Fire up the heat allow the oil to get hot WITH the kernels and COVER! Covering is important, why? Because they fly with molten hot sugar on them. Once they start popping, shake the pot in a circular motion to get all the sugar on each kernel, continue until you don't hear such rapid popping. Pour into a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Allow to cool for a minute and enjoy!
