“Kettle corn was introduced to the United States in the 18th century. It is referenced in the diaries of Dutch settlers in Pennsylvania circa 1776. It was a treat sold at fairs or consumed at other festive occasions. The corn, oil, sugar and salt together is cooked in a cast iron kettle, or possibly a Dutch oven, this produces a noticeable sweet crust on the popcorn, however this method requires constant stirring or the sugar will burn…” - Wikipedia
Step 1: Measure the Ingredients
Fill the bottom of the pot with a layer of kernels. Pour the kernels out of the pot and into another container. Take about 10 kernels and place them back into the pot.
Add vegetable oil to the pot enough so it comes up halfway on the kernels. Put the lid on and turn the flame to medium.
Set aside a ¼ cup of sugar and a salt shaker.
