Super simple and delish kettle corn!


  1. Pour olive oil into large saucepan. Add unpopped popcorn. Cover and heat over high heat.
  2. When first kernel pops, open cover and add sugar. Cover immediately.
  3. Shake pan vigorously until popping slows to less than 1 pop per 3 seconds, being careful not to allow popcorn to scorch.
  4. Immediately pour into large bowl. Salt to taste. Toss to break up clumps.

Delicious! Made exactly as recipe said. Did not burn like I read other people mention in similar reviews. I think the trick is constantly shaking the pot. Will make this one often!

Simple. Easy. Delicious. What more can I say? Oh ya! Only that it's WAY better than microwave popcorn! :)

I selected this recipe as a tag for PAC 2008. This was a good recipe to have, as I love Kettle Korn and find it ready made so seldom. It was an easy recipe to make. Now, I am truly spoiled.
