5 Homemade Kettle Corn

My mom collects recipes.  She has a stash of cut out newspaper recipes in a cupboard somewhere.  I know I inherited that gene.  I've got a shoebox of torn out recipes from newspapers and magazines.  Only now, my obsession has gone digital....

I have a folder on my desktop labeled "Blog Recipes."  It started out with my recipes and has since exploded to included other blogger's recipes that I am dying to try.  I have just barely begun to try these recipes, unlike the ones that are collecting dust in my shoebox.

First recipe tried and blogged about?

Frozen Hot Chocolate from My Kitchen Cafe.    I just had to find out what that was all about.  What a rich, frothy treat!

This Kettle Corn Recipe comes from Joy the Baker.   When I saw this recipe, I was suddenly taken back to the early 90's when microwave kettle corn was all the rage.

It is such a simple recipe... so easy to make!

I cut the recipe in half to accommodate my 3 quart saucepan.

Heat your vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat.  Make sure this is a pan that you can cover and easily lift and shake in the air.

Put 3 kernels in your pan.

Wait for your 3 popcorn kernels to pop...

Quickly sprinkle the rest of your kernels into the pan...

I like them in an even layer...

Then sprinkle your sugar on top.

Quickly put a lid on your pot ( I love the clear glass lids!)
and use 2 hot pads.

Once the corn starts popping, grab the pot (lid and all) and shake the pot above the flame or stovetop for a few seconds.  Return to the heat for a few seconds and repeat this process several times...

until the popcorn stops popping.

Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl and salt to taste.

You will want to stir it with a spoon because it is HOT from the sugar...

Put in a movie, grab your loved one and have some nostalgic, sweet, slightly salty kettle corn.

Thanks, Joy!
