County Fair Kettle Korn
- Ready In:
6 cups popped
- 2⁄3 cup unpopped popcorn
- 1⁄3 cup oil (you can use vegetable, corn, canola, olive...etc etc)
- 1⁄4 cup white sugar
- You will need a large cooking pot. It should have a wide opening and be slightly shallow ( large, deep soup pots don't work as well.) Make sure you have a lid that fits!
- Place 2/3 cup popcorn inside pot. The pot will be the perfect size if the popcorn just barely covers the entire bottom of the pot in one layer.
- Stir in 1/3 cup oil of your choice and cover with the lid. Heat over ( MEDIUM for electric range, MED-LOW for gas ) range, giving the pot a good shake every 60 seconds or so, until you hear the first kernel pop.
- Carefully uncover and add the 1/4 cup white sugar, stir and re-cover with the lid. Shake the pot every 20-30 seconds until popping slows to 2-3 pops every few seconds.
- Remove from heat and dump into large mixing bowl. While hot and sticky, salt to taste, stirring well.

Can't believe I forgot to rate this. It is SO GOOD!!! A nice change from regular popcorn and it does taste just like the kind you get at craft and country fairs! If I make a lot of this, I will wash the pan after each batch or two or it will start to burn. This works great in a Whirly Pop popcorn maker.

I am a 22 yr/old young woman who is IN LOVE with Cooking! ( an my wonderful BF, Stephen, who is always more than welcome to eat my cooking! ) My full time job at Medical Billing requires me to find an outlet for my frustration, my pent-up energy ( from sitting behind a desk all day ) and my creative juices that constantly seem to flow. I am a firm believer in, If you didn't make it from scratch, then you just simply can't serve it! I make everything that I possibly can - so in other words, I detest and sneer at recipes that call for ready made or instant ingredients. I won 1st lace in the Apple Pie contest at the Jefferson County Fair a few years back - Best Apple in Jefferson County, PA!! That was one of my proudest moments :-) On Friday night, I'm always in the kitchen, cooking up something for my family and BF to savor and rave over. No, I'm not stuck on myself ( or my cooking ) I just think I'm pretty darn good at what I do ;-)
