Favorite Ingredients Friday (Kettle Corn)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Before we get started, I'd like to give a shout out for Tamy at 3 Sides of Crazy! She is hosting a Bread Round-Up on October 15. I'll be joining in. I hope you can too! Go visit her blog for details and help her spread the word!

Upcoming Themed Schedule
September 26- Breads Edition
October 10-Sauce Edition II
October 24-Italian Edition II
November 7-Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style!
November 21-Soup Edition II

The recipe I'm posting is another one that I found on the (I just love that website)! With only 3 ingredients, it's quick and simple to make and it's sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Kettle Corn


1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil


Place the popcorn and sugar in a large pot with vegetable oil. Over a medium heat, begin to pop the popcorn. Constantly shake the pot to ensure that the popcorn kernels and oil do not burn. Once the popping has slowed, remove the pot from heat.

Note: White sugar makes the Kettle Corn taste like popcorn balls. Use brown sugar and it will taste like caramel corn.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Fridayrecipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

Hi! I've made fried rice a few times and it's turned out well every time except for the time that I got some oven cleaner in it . . .

The recipe that I have calls for COLD cooked rice, and it is adamant. I've heard that that's the key.

I usually just use my sauce on veggies and meat and serve over steamed rice, though; it's less trouble.

I have to disagree with the kettle corn made with white sugar tasting like popcorn balls. You need to cook the sugar at a high temp. and basically caramelize it. It's tricky to do on a stove since you MUST be mixing and stirring it every second it's on the heat.
