Around the Mid-West there are a bunch of fall fairs and festivals. One of the all time favorite treats is Kettle Corn. Here is a recipe I found in a local magazine…
1/4 c. veggie oil
1/2 c. popcorn kernels
1/4 c. sugar
1 T. salted butter, melted
1 t. coarse salt
In a large pot with a tight-fitting lid, heat the oil over a med-hi heat. Add popcorn.
When the oil sizzles, sprinkle the sugar over the kernels.
Cover and shake the pan until the popping slows down (about 3 minutes).
Remove from the heat and toss with melted butter, then add salt.
