Kettle Corn

There’s something about being sick that makes me crave junk food. Chocolate, cookies, donuts are all that I want to eat.  I had none of those in the house last week when Amina and I were first hit with the cold virus, so I needed something else to help curb my sugar craving.  Luckily, I had just streamed CityLine and saw a recipe for Fairground Kettle Corn.

Corn kernels? Check.

Sugar? Check.

Oil? Check.

Time to make some kettle corn.

Kettle Corn


1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup popcorn kernels

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

Combine 1/4 cup canola oil with 3 popcorn kernels in a large, wide pot over medium.

When the kernels pop, add another 1/2 cup kernels and carefully sprinkle very evenly with 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Cover with a lid and cook, picking up pot to shake every few seconds, until the popping slows down, 2 to 3 min.

Immediately pour popcorn into a large bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt while stirring. Let cool for 3 min before serving.
