HOMEMADE KETTLE CORN

HOMEMADE KETTLE CORN
Kettle corn is a totally irresistible snack. Unlike the caramel corns which are very sweet. The kettle corns are slightly sweet and salty at the same time.
Ingredients
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
2 tablespoons white sugar
Salt to taste
melted butter (optional)
Method
In your saucepan, heat the oil and popcorn kernels over medium-high heat, shaking the pan to keep the kernels from burning. When the kernels are about to start popping, they will become slightly lighter in color, and most importantly, they will start to smell like popcorn. At this point, sprinkle the sugar over the kernels and cover. With the lid on, continue to cook the popcorn by gently shaking the pan over the heat. When the popping has slowed (don’t keep cooking until the very last kernel has popped, you will end up burning the sugar), remove the pan from heat and empty the popcorn into a large bowl. Toss with salt immediately (when the sugar on the popcorn is still hot and sticky, the salt will adhere to the kernels better) and sprinkle with melted butter if you like. Enjoy while still warm.
