“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
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.
