Homemade Kettle Corn

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels

Cheap, quick, and easy! I put butter and three kernels in the pot, when all three kernels pop I add the sugar and stir it around well, then I add the rest of the popcorn kernels and put the lid on. Then I alternate shaking the pot for three seconds with letting it sit on the burner for three seconds until I hear the popping begin to slow down, then I take off the lid and sprinkle some salt in, replace the lid, give it another shake and pour it out into a bowl. Haven't had a batch burn yet with the "3-second shake and sit" technique. ;-)

For a completely different flavor sprinkle to following over the popcorn after it is done popping and omit the sugar:

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch nutmeg, freshly grated
1/2 teaspoon allspice
