Kettle Corn!

Do you guys know how easy it is to make your own kettle corn? I bought a Whirley Pop a few years ago and now popcorn and kettle corn are my go to snacks. It's so easy to whip up quickly in case a bunch of people show up at your house out of the blue, which is something that happens often around here. And, as an added bonus, it's vegan, gluten free, dairy free, what's not to love?

I have a friend who makes kettle corn just in a pot on the stove, I wasn't ever talented enough to do that without burning it but this recipe works the same either way.

Kettle Corn
Adapted from Whirley Pop's Recipe Book

1/4 c. Vegetable Oil
1/2 c. Popcorn Kernels
1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt

Heat the oil in the pot, somewhere between medium and high. Once it's heated, add the rest of the ingredients and cover. If you're using a Whirley Pop just turn the handle or if you're using a regular pot,  shake it every few seconds as the corn begins to pop. Once the popping slows way down, that means its done and you're ready to go!
