This is the best kettle corn recipe I've tried. I make it in a Whirleypop stove top popcorn popper. You can use a 6 to 8 quart covered saucepan but make sure to stir it constantly or the kernels will burn. I use coconut oil but you can use canola or corn oil instead. I use brown sugar to give the popcorn a caramel taste but you could use white sugar as well. It will have a more neutral flavor.
