My boss brought in a bag of freshly made kettle corn yesterday. I had a handful today. Crunchy, sweet, salty goodness. I try to make this at home but it’s just not the same.
The recipe is fairly easy:
1/4 cup oil
1/3 – 1/2 cup popcorn
1/4 cup granulated sugar, can be all white or half white and half brown
1/4 tsp salt, optional
Heat oil and three kernels of popcorn in a large 4-6 quart pan with a lid until the corn pops. Add the rest of the popcorn and sugar. Cover and shake until the popping slows to 2-3 pops. Immediately dump popped corn into another container. (I use a parchment lined cookie sheet.) Sprinkle with salt. Fill pan with hot water to make clean-up easier.
I also use a Whirley-Pop Popcorn Maker. It has a stirring rod in the bottom that you turn so you don’t have to shake the pan. I don’t work for or receive any compensation from Whirley-Pop. I just love their popcorn maker.
I brought my knitting with me again today hoping I can work on the eyelet sweater during lunch.
Having twin granddaughters means having to make double. This is a combination of 3 patterns so does that make it an original?
