Kettle Corn

This recipe came from The Savory Sweet Life

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.  Add popcorn and sugar giving it a quick stir and then cover with lid.  Once popcorn starts popping, pick up pot and give it a quick shake every few seconds until popping slows down, between 3-4 minutes.  Remove immediately from heat and pour into a large bowl or spread on a cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with salt and ENJOY!  Do not make the mistake of removing the pot from heat without transferring to a bowl. Due to the high heat of the pot, if you don’t transfer the popcorn it will caramelize and perhaps burn.

**I LOVE how quick this is, and easy...but very easy to burn also.  My first batch I burned, but realizing that I let it stay on the heat two seconds too long, I made a second batch and it turned out GREAT!  Yes, it can burn in a matter of seconds.  It is better to have some unpopped kernals than to wait for them all to pop.....that is when they burn!

**DO NOT let the kids help make this.  It is too hot and if the sugar/oil gets on them it will burn bad.  It cools really quickly though so they can eat it!
