I tried this recipe teh first time and I didn't have the pan hot enough to begin with. I used an electric skilet so I had to mess a little with the temperature. I burned it. the second time I had it nice and hot about 375 degrees and it worked like a charm. the best recipe I've found yet. Tastes just like the stuff from the fair.
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup safflower oil
- 1 cup raw popcorn
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
Directions See How It's Made
- Process granulated sugar and salt in a mini food processor for 60- 90 seconds.
- Using a large heavy gauge pot with lid place on stove and preheat on medium high.
- Pour Safflower oil in pot and heat oil for about 1 minute.
- Pour corn into hot oil.
- Heat corn with oil for about 30 seconds; add corn syrup to hot oil and popcorn that has not yet popped.
- Stir corn mixture to mix corn syrup into the oil.
- Place lid on pot.
- The corn should be starting to pop shortly.
- Shake pot constantly while cooking.
- When the popcorn starts to pop and has a layer of popped corn covering the raw corn very quickly pour the salt and sugar mixture in to the popcorn that is popping.
- This needs to be timed right, and quickly done.
- A few kernels may fly out.
- A glass lid is a big help.
- During the cooking process you must be constantly shaking the pot.
- When the corn has slowed the process of popping, quickly remove the pot from the stove and pour into a large bowl.
- It's better if some has not popped so the rest will not burn with the sugar content.
