Homemade Kettle Corn Recipe
This easy homemade Kettle Corn Recipe is made with 4 ingredients, in less than 5 minutes on the stovetop. Better than the kettle corn at the fair! It's gluten-free and dairy-free!
Appetizer, Dessert, Snack
Servings (12 cups kettle corn)
(or canola oil)
Popcorn Salt to taste
Place 1 TBS oil and 3 kernels of popcorn into a stovetop popcorn maker (like the whirly pop). Place over medium heat and stir with the lid closed.
Once the three kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn kernels and the sugar and stir vigorously to combine with the lid on.
Stir continuously as the popcorn begins to pop.
When the popping slows down, turn off the heat and continue stirring until you do not hear any more popping.
Immediately pour half of the kettle corn into a large bowl. Sprinkle with popcorn salt. Repeat with the second half. Toss to combine.
Store kettle corn in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
To make in a stockpot:
Place 1 TBS oil and 3 kernels of popcorn into a medium stockpot with a lid. Stir until the coconut oil is melted, then put the lid on and shake.
Once the three kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn kernels and the sugar and stir to evenly distribute the ingredients, then secure the lid.
Every 10-15 seconds shake the pot and then return it to the heat source, repeat until the kernels stop popping.
Continue with recipe as stated!
popcorn kernels work perfectly in this kettle corn recipe.
White granulated sugar and organic cane sugar both work well. I do not recommend making substitutions for granulated sugar.
canola oil is the only substitution I recommend for coconut oil!
is a very fine salt that sticks well to the warm popcorn. If you have regular popcorn nights I recommend purchasing some.
