Cinnamon-Sugar Kettle Corn

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 teaspoon salt
Ground cinnamon

Melt butter in a large pot over medium-low heat (not a dutch oven). When butter has slowly melted for a while, skim solids off the top of butter and discard. Increase heat to medium.

Stir in sugar and popcorn until well combined. Cover, and cook popcorn until it's done popping, shaking the pot often (about every 20 seconds). Transfer kettle corn to a large bowl. Sprinkle salt and cinnamon over the top, and stir until well combined.

  2. Mmm. When I first started making kettle corn myself, I made a batch every weekend. It's crack, I'm telling you!

    The apple butter sounds great. I like it better than most jams because of the consistency.

  5. That looks so good! I love making my own popcorn at home and curling up on the sofa with a massive bowl of the stuff. I've never tried cinnamon on my popcorn and I love the sound of it!

  6. I love popcorn and eat it every day. It's very unscientific how I top mine. Usually a spray with cooking spray or coconut oil, some stevia, cinnamon, sometimes cocoa powder, whatever strikes me that day.

    Your popcorn looks amazing!

  9. Ahaha, oh Emily, your posts never fail to amuse me. I was looking forward to a new post all day & kept checking cause I had the day off and had nothing else to do except refresh blogs and read super old posts.

    + that apple is probably the most perfect apple I've seen in a long, long time. It's so... red..

    ++ your mother is a sweetheart ^__^ I carry all of my food around like you, though. I'm very selfish that way

  15. Your kettle corn looks awesome--I didn't realize it was so easy. I have a friend who uses a stir crazy popcorn popper to make hers. I wonder if coconut oil would be good?

  18. Em,
    If this cooking thing doesn't work for you, you could always do stand up. In fact, you should anyway and be sure to wear your "Quiet Beatle" earrings. You are tooooooooo funny.

    That Kettle Corn would be extremely easy to mail. Should I be monitoring my mail closely?

  21. Thanks everyone!

    Christina, I agree. This one was almost like applesauce.

    Averie, I'll have to try coconut oil. That sounds great!

    Michele, I haven't tried it yet. It is pretty, huh? Thanks for reading my blog! I do that too with other bloggers' old blog posts.

    Dawn, I like cheese corn. Mmm.

    Joanne, I knew you'd understand!

    Sue, nooo you should have your own comedy routine! I'd come and see you. Yes... yes you should. Haha.
