A couple of Saturdays ago, I was looking for something to make for us to eat, not a whole meal, not really sugary but not really healthy. 🙂
After searching on the internet I found a recipe for homemade kettle corn. Eh, I guess that’s sugary, but oh well. 🙂
It was really good! And I wanted to share the recipe with you.
( The following recipe and picture I can not get to stay centered, erg. 🙁 sorry!)~Homemade Kettle Corn~ 2/3 cup raw popcorn 1/4 cup oil 1/4 cup sugar Place oil and popcorn in pan ( you will also need a lid.) The popcorn should barely cover the bottom of the pan. Heat over medium heat until the first kernel starts to pop. Quickly stir in the sugar until dissolved. Cover and continuously shake pan while holding top. Be careful, this will burn much quicker than regular popcorn. When you think all is popped, remove from heat. Spoon the popped corn into a bowl while shaking once in a while to let the uncooked kernels settle. Salt lightly and break up into pieces. Enjoy!
I have had trouble with it burning, the best batch that turned out was done in a heavy stainless steel sauce pan, (like West Bend). And usually I have alot of unpopped kernels. I may try doing half a batch and see if that works. 🙂 The original recipe says to make it in a skillet, that seems kind of strange, we never pop our corn in a skillet, maybe it would help with the burning? I might try it sometime.
If you make this and have better sucess then me, or maybe you all ready have your own recipe, do tell me the secret of not burning it! 🙂
And if any of you have a good carmel corn recipe and would like to share it, I would love to have it! 🙂 The same day I made the kettle corn I made carmel corn, it was okay, but not worth making again.
