Kettle Korn

I’ve been making Kettle Korn ever since I discovered it at a festival. I was so happy to find it in the pre-packaged unpopped microwave things in the grocery store. What disappointment…nothing like the festival stuff. So, with several trial and error attempts, I created this recipe and have been making it ever since. We love it. Hope someone else does, too!

Difficulty: Easy

Cook Time: a few minutes  


2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup unpopped popcorn


It is supposed to be made in a heavy pan. I use my 3-quart Revere pot with a tight fitting lid.

Measure sugar and set aside.

Measure oil into the pot and heat over a good medium-high flame (but not high enough to really burn it).

Measure unpopped popcorn.

Put 2 or 3 kernels into the oil and when they pop, quickly add the white sugar and the rest of the popcorn.

Don’t stir it, but put the cover on and keep shaking the pot over the flame till it has all stopped popping.

Quickly pour into a bowl and sprinkle liberally with salt, tossing it to distribute the salt evenly.

It will cool quickly and has a light sugary-salty flavor, with burnt sugar pieces in it that are delishious!!!

Editor’s Note: If you have a sweet tooth, try it with extra sugar sprinkled on top, too!
