Kettle Corn

Summer is here and I am slacking something terrible! Our meals have been less than inspiring but we have had a few tasty snacks at least. Now that all our TV shows are over for the season, we have gone back to watching movies. And what is a movie without some popcorn?

I'd never had kettle corn until I was an adult but now I am hooked. Bill made it this time around (with Kay's help of course) and joked "Aren't you going to take a picture for your blog?" So of course, I did!
Just ignore that mess on the counter. Like I said, it is summer!

Kettle Corn

2 T vegetable oil (if using the Whirly Pop)

1/2 cup popcorn kernels

1/4 cup white sugar

pinch of salt

Have all ingredients ready as well as a bowl before starting. Heat the oil in the Whirly Pop for 2 minutes. Add the sugar and kernels all at once and stir constantly. Once the popping slows, pour immediately into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt.

Kay: I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom (Dana): If you are using a regular pot instead of the Whirly Pop, I think you need about 1/4 cup of oil. If you want more of a caramel taster you can use part white sugar and part brown sugar.

I hate to admit it but I can probably eat a whole batch of this by myself!

Hi Kay & Dana,
I have added a link to you on my blog! I don't know why I didn't do it sooner!
