Kettle Corn

Kettle corn is a perfect corn snack. Back in Arizona one of our local Mall had a kettle corn shack just outside their doors. Whenever they started a new batch a long line would form outside. That fresh popped corn was delicious.


Popped corn is a healthy snack and is very popular in my house. I usually make it in small batches. Today I realized I have not posted kettle corn on this space.


It is not really a recipe, a little of this and little of that.

You will need
1/2 cup unpopped corn kernels
3 tbsp. oil
3 tbs. sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt

Heat oil in a pan and add the corn kernels with the sugar. Shake the pan and cover with a lid. Keep the heat at medium high. When you hear the kernels popping shake and swirl the pan every 15 seconds. When the pops are a few seconds apart take off the lid and transfer the popped corn to a bowl. Sprinkle salt and mix well.


Enjoy!
