A few of you asked for our recipe for homemade kettle corn, and here it is! I tried a couple of different methods, including one where we heated the sugar with the oil and then added the popcorn (big mess!). This is the one we liked best—it’s nice and easy.
12 cups popcorn, popped (or two packages microwave popcorn)
3 TBSP. butter
3 TBSP. water
1 cup sugar
Salt to taste
Prepare popcorn and pour into large bowl. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add water and sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Pour half of mixture over popcorn and stir to combine. Stir in remaining mixture and add salt to taste.
