Sharing my absolute, all-time, can’t-beat, would-never-give-up, FAVORITE snack… Homemade Kettle Corn. This simple kettle corn recipe is not only easy to make, it makes everyone I know happy. That is, until their bowl is empty.
What to say about homemade kettle corn….. I LOVE IT.
So much, guys.
In fact, I can’t think of anything I’d rather snack on during movies or family game night.
The salty-sweetness and crunch of a good kettle corn recipe are nearly more than I can bear. I can only make kettle corn when the whole family is at home, or else I will sit and eat the whole batch all by myself. We’re talking four quarts worth.
If you’ve never tried making homemade kettle corn, today’s the day. You probably already have everything you need in your pantry.
Start by making stovetop popcorn just like you normally would. Place a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat and add the popcorn kernels and oil. Cover the pot with a lid, but make sure to open the vent to let the steam escape.
Measure the sugar and salt, then listen as the popcorn pops.
Timing is everything in a good kettle corn recipe… You need to add the sugar at exactly the right moment. If you add it too early, the sugar will burn. Yet if you add it too late, the sugar won’t melt and coat the popcorn.
The moment the popping starts to slow and you can tell there are only a few kernels left to pop, add the sugar and salt (and a little cayenne for kick.) Toss it vigorously while the popcorn and pot are still hot. Tossing thoroughly will ensure the sugar melts and coats all the kernels.
Then dive in!
Homemade Kettle Corn is a great back-to-school lunch box item or after-school snack. My kids are heading back to school in just a couple weeks. You KNOW I’ll be ready with the kettle corn!
