Making My Own- Kettle Corn

One of my favorite treats is Kettle Corn. My sister in law shared this simple recipe to make your own at home, and we have nick named it Fluffy Crack, it is THAT good! 
You need popcorn kernels, oil (we use canola), sugar, and a little salt at the end.


First measure out 1/3 cup popcorn, and 1/3 cup sugar and place in a small bowl or cup. You will add this to the oil once it is hot.
Then pour 1/3 cup of oil into your pot. Place 2 popcorn kernels in the oil. Turn heat to a 6 or 7, or medium high. When both kernels have popped you know your oil is ready for the rest of your ingredients.
Add the sugar and popcorn and stir quickly to incorporate with the oil. Put a lid on, and frequently pick up your pot and shimmy everything around so the sugar doesn't burn. I keep potholders on my hands :)
Just like microwave popcorn, once the popping kernels have slowed down, get your kettle corn off the stove and into a bowl or it will burn. *Watch for flying popcorn, point it away from your face as you pour into your bowl*
While the popcorn is still wet, add salt to your liking and mix around! Let cool a little bit and devour! This is still good the next day if you don't eat it all, which I find unlikely ;)
