On a recent trip, we fell in love with freshly made kettle corn at the local fair. Every scrumptious bite left us wanting more, so we vowed to recreate it back in our kitchen. Great news: It's so easy to make, we're serving it at every get-together this fall.


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • COMBINE canola oil with 3 popcorn kernels in a large, wide pot over medium. When the kernels pop, add remaining kernels and carefully sprinkle very evenly with sugar. Cover with a lid and cook, picking up pot to to shake every few seconds, until the popping slows down, 2 to 3 min. Immediately pour popcorn into a large bowl and sprinkle with salt while stirring. Let cool for 3 min before serving.
