NSR: Kettle Corn Popcorn Recipe

Hello, stampers! Hope you are having a good week so far. I was sick last week. I got the flu round 3. How fun is that? sigh! Don't have nay creative stuff to show you.

Many of you have asked for the kettle corn recipe. Here it is.

Disclaimer here: My husband uses a popcorn maker called "Snack Maker" made by Schneider's. You can use any pot that is similar in design. It's really a pot with a lid that has a turning handle. The whole idea is to have someway of rotating the popcorn so that it doesn't burn while popping. It is possible to use a regular large pot and shaking it vigorously every few seconds but, the quality of the popcorn will be poor.

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

1  Heat the pot at medium.
2  Add the oil and heat a minute
3  Add popcorn, give it a few shakes to distribute evenly and watch it sizzle.
4  Add the sugar and watch the sizzle die down. Secure lid on pot.
5  Wait for the kernels to start popping. Now slowly, but not too slowly turn the handle to rotate the popping corn. Thus keeping the popped corn from staying in one place too long to avoid burning. Let pop until popping slows to 1 pop for every 2-3 seconds. Remove from heat source.
6  Immediately, empty popped corn into large bowl. It will be sticky. Now sprinkle in the salt and toss a few times to distribute the salt. Wait for it to cool before eating. The popped corn will stick together when hot. After cooling it can be separated by tossing a few times. Now enjoy!
