Menu Monday: Kettle Corn

I was amazed at how easy and fast this was, I was more amazed at how easy the clean up is! I thought for sure with oil and sugar I'd be scrubbing a pot after I was done, but not at all! There was hardly a stuck on mess. This is such an inexpensive snack. Sure it isn't the most healthy but hot kettle corn with that caramelized sugar crunch is SO good fresh.
1/2 cup popping corn
1/4 cup vegetable oil- It seems like a lot but not in the end.
3 tablespoons sugar
kosher salt
two oven mitts or pot holders
a big pot with a lid (I used a 5 qt dutch oven and it was perfect)

Measure everything out and set it aside. Once you start it's hard to measure things, it moves quickly.

Add oil to the pot and heat it on medium high, make sure the oil get hot but not burning. Add the popcorn. SPRINKLE in the sugar over top (do not dump it in a big pile). Place the lid on top of the pot and start moving the pot around. The oven mitts help with the heat. The corn will start popping, once it slows down you are done. With a big metal serving spoon stir to bring up some of the sugar and coat the rest of the popcorn if needed.  *I forgot to tell you to salt the popcorn at this point* SO good served right away.
