I am Chelsea from The Crafter's Anonymous Club.
I am so excited to be a Featured Blogger over here at What Allie's Making Now!
This is my first time as a guest blogger and I am super nervous...oh well!
I love to create stuff...ALL kinds of stuff.
If I don't know how to do it, I learn how. Come over and check me out some time.
I LOOOOVE Kettle Corn. I only had it for the first time a year ago. Ahhh! I was missing that amazing-ness this whole time! Sad face :(
Another thing you may not know about me is that I am cheep...very cheep. I learned it from my mother. A SALE shopper to the end. So I will NOT pay good money for popcorn when I know it is so easy to make. Example: As a child we NEVER purchased treats or popcorn at the movies. We brought our own. My mom had a really ugly green pleather bag that we took with us full of pre-popped popcorn, pop cans and candy from the gas station. Saved lots of money and I never knew the difference. So spending $8.00 for a bag of kettle corn at the theater is CRAZY! I will not do it!
Guess what I did. I figured out how to make it myself. GENIUS!
And I want to share it with you.
First you need an ugly pot with a fitted lid - Not to big and not to small. (he, he..Goldilocks) You will not want to use this pot for much else after you make this a few times. The bottom gets pretty scorched. The lid must fit well to avoid oil splatter.
• Pop-Corn - I used the Walmart Brand
• Oil - vegetable or canola
I have a gas stove so take that into consideration. An electric may take more time to heat.
In your pot dump:
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup kernels
Mix up with long wood (not metal or plastic) spoon.
Put on lid. With hot pads hold your pot on each side.
Lift and shake side to side and up and down.
Put on burner, Count to 5.
one one thousand, two one thousand...etc.
Lift and shake....blah, blah, blah
Put on burner and count to 5.
Do this over and over till the popping slows and stops for 2 seconds.
Turn off heat and dump popcorn into large bowl IMMEDIATELY. The pot is still hot and will continue to burn your corn.
Sprinkle with salt, mix and salt some more.
NOTE: Be careful of un-popped kernels. They stick to the popped kernels and you don't know it till you bite down. I will not be held responsible for broken teeth! Let your kettle corn cool down and then break it apart gently. This should help dislodge those un-popped kernels.
This is my bowl, get your own!
