kettle corn 101...

{a little sweet, a little salty}

anyone who knows me knows that i don't ever crave movie popcorn, but i am not kidding anyone if i say i don't love myself some kettle corn! it's a must from the farmers market every saturday! too bad the farmers market doesn't go year round here!
well, no worries- now i can make a batch, or 5:), everyday.(i really did make 5 batches yesterday!)
you don't have to have this little gem that i use, but it will make it much easier & it's not expensive. i got me first Whirley Pop almost 10 years ago as a wedding present from my high school humanities teacher, Mrs. Olsen. i love her! i have since had to invest in another on, but i couldn't live without it. i know you can order them online, but even Bed, Bath & Beyond carries them. so save that 20% off coupon that you throw away every week & go get one;) enough with the dialog- here's the info!

{kettle corn recipe}

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/2-1 tsp. salt- to taste
1/3 cup popcorn kernels

over high heat, dump all ingredients into the whirley pop. close lid & turn crank.
let sit until it starts to pop. turn crank until finished popping, only about 30 seconds.
pour into heatproof bowl. let cool completely. add more salt if needed.
enjoy, share & repeat:)
