Kettle Corn

Yield Makes 12 cups
Pop up a batch of kettle corn for your next movie night and satisfy that craving for something sweet, salty, or crunchy. This recipe's got it all.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Place first 3 ingredients in a hand-cranked popcorn popper.

  2. Cook popcorn kernel mixture over medium-high heat, rapidly turning hand crank. Once kernels begin to pop, reduce heat to low, and continue cranking until popping stops.

  3. Place popcorn in a large bowl, and sprinkle with salt.
