I was terrified of this, because I had never made popcorn before. It turned out perfect! I love kettle corn, and this is it. And yes, I added salt. It just wouldn't be right without it.

My son has always liked kettle corn and this recipe is much better than the packaged kettle corn. Thank you for sharing.

My husband and I both loved it! It was exactly what we wanted. I made it with a hald cup of popcorn instead of a third and it still turned out awesome.
