We all have gone to the fair and smelled all the good food. From the hot soft pretzels, giant turkey legs, corn dogs, warm doughnuts, sizzling fries, sugary fried dough, and cotton candy.  I go straight to the hot kettle corn. I am the kid that gets the biggest bag they have to offer even if it is about 3 feet tall. I just love the sweet taste, the crunch, and the warmth of a giant bag of popcorn. Sadly I eat it all in a span of 30 minutes, then I want it again, but we have already left the fair. So I decided to try to recreate that feeling. I found a recipe that seems relatively easy. But please know that making kettle corn perfect takes patience, practice, and skill, because it is really easy to burn.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, stir in the sugar and popcorn. Cover, and shake the pot constantly to keep the sugar from burning. Once the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and continue to shake for a few minutes until the popping has stopped. Pour into a large bowl, and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps.
