Joe's Corn O' the Kettle

Joe's Corn O' the Kettle created by Sharon123

A homemade version of Kettle Corn. Popcorn made the old fashioned way-in an castiron skillet. Let's make Joe proud!

Ready In:
10mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 13 cup popcorn (or enough to cover bottom of pan in single layer)
  • oil (for frying)
  • 13 cup granulated sugar (I use unbleached sugar)
  • 14 cup real butter
  • salt

directions

  • In 10" castiron skillet on medium heat, pour enough oil to.
  • a depth of 1/8". Heat until hot, but not smoking.
  • Place one corn kernel in pan. If it starts to sizzle, then the
  • popcorn kernels are ready to be placed in the skillet.
  • Pour kernels, sugar and butter into skillet, stir then carefully move skillet back and forth over burner to distribute popcorn kernels and to avoid burning.
  • Eventually, (usually about 5 minutes), the kernels will begin to pop. Cover and keep cooking and moving skillet back and forth. From time to time use a fork to stir the popcorn/sugar mixture. The last minute of cooking, increase heat to medium-high. Take skillet off heat promptly when the majority of kernels have popped. Remove skillet lid carefully.
  • Place popped corn in a serving bowl. Set the old maids aside for me. Season with salt. Stir well.
  • Serve.

    Maybe I didn't quite do it right. Much of it was burnt. I'm not sure quite how to tell if the heat is right or if it's burning.

    Yummy! I used a 10" cast iron skillet, so used a little more corn. It came out crispy, coated with a sugar coating, not too sweet and delicious! Thanks Cookgirl! Made for Photo forum, O recipes for October!
