Kettle Corn

We love stovetop popcorn, especially this sweet and salty version. I do not recommend doubling this recipe.

Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1 t salt


Have ready a serving bowl and two oven mitts or potholders. Place all the ingredients in a large pot (mine is a stainless steel stockpot that is used only for popping corn) and place over medium heat. When the popcorn begins to pop, begin to shake the pot without stopping until the popping slows (this prevents the sugar from burning). Once the popping has slowed remove from the heat and transfer kettle corn into serving bowl. Enjoy!
