How To Make Kettle Corn at home. Do you love kettle corn and want to make it at home instead of buying it? Learn how to make kettle corn right in your own kitchen. The sweet and the salty, delicious.
We make it at my house but we do not like microwave popcorn. It smells the house up and the popcorn tastes like the bag. So we make our own and one of our favorites is kettle corn. To make popcorn without an air popper or microwave you make it on the top of the stove. You can use a heavy pan with a lid, I used to always use my pressure cooker (you just leave the weight off.)
The only thing I have against the heavy pot is you need to keep the popcorn kernels moving in the pan till they pop or they will burn. A pressure cooker gets heavy when you need to shake rattle and roll it for five or six minutes. So I finally broke over and bought The Whirley- Pop.
After using it I am kicking my self for waiting so long to get one. It weighs almost nothing and it has a crank you turn to keep the kernels moving. Super easy and no more shake rattle and roll on the stove top. You can use either plain white granulated sugar or you can use brown sugar when making your kettle corn. We like the dark brown because it give a richer taste almost like caramel corn.
Here is what you need. I really like the popcorn pictured because it is organic and non gmo.
Once you have it all together throw it all in your pot.
As each kernel pops it releases a little burst of steam and melts the sugar and salt then bathes in the melted goodness. (Here is a tip for you, Keep your popcorn in the freezer, it helps to prevent it from drying out. The moisture in the center of the kernel is what makes it pop in the hot oil.)
Your pan will have a little caramelized sugar in the bottom, just add some hot water and let it soak then it will wash right off. Enjoy!
If you would like a popper like that in aluminum or stainless steel or the organic non GMO popcorn there are links below here to purchase them from Amazon.
PUT ALL INGREDIENTS INTO THE WHIRLEY-POP, TURN ON THE HEAT TO MEDIUM. DON’T USE HIGH HEAT OR THE SUGAR WILL BURN. IF YOU ARE USING A POT START MOVING IT IN CIRCLES ON THE BURNER. IF YOU ARE USING THE WHIRLEY-POP START TURNING THE CRANK ON THE HANDLE. POPPING TAKES ABOUT 5 MINUTES ONCE THE PAN GETS HOT. WHEN YOU HERE THE POPPING SLOWING DOWN REMOVE FROM HEAT AND EMPTY THE POPCORN INTO A LARGE BOWL. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE A SAVORY POPCORN BY POPPING AND SHAKING GARLIC POWDER AND PARMESAN OVER IT.
