I love homemade kettle corn. It reminds me of going to the fair or market as a kid. It is ridiculously affordable and way better than the microwave kind!
Use a large heavy pot and add:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Turn the pot onto medium-high, and cover with a lid.
Shake the pot occassionally as they warm up. Once they begin to pop add:
**white sugar will create a popcorn-ball flavor while brown sugar will be like caramel corn**
Continue shaking for about 3 minutes until the popping slows down. Pour out immediately into a bowl and serve!
