The trick to making your own Kettle Corn at home is watching it. Kettle corn has a tendency to burn easier than popcorn, because of the sugar.

Ingredients

Popcorn Kernels: I use organic popcorn kernels, you can easily find these online or even in grocery stores now.

Coconut Oil: I use organic coconut oil as coconut oil is a high heat oil and it provides sweetness which is what kettle corn is known for.

Cane Sugar: One of my favorite organic cane sugars is from Wholesome, it's what I use here.

Sea Salt: The sea salt is what makes kettle corn so addicting with that sweet and salty combo, I use Frontier Co-Op.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a large pot add coconut oil and 3 corn kernels, cover with a lid and put over medium/high heat.

Once one or all kernels have popped, remove popped kernels and add all remaining corn kernels and cover with a lid. Heat kernels for 1 minute.

Step 2

Sprinkle the sugar into the pot in an even layer over the kernels, and return the lid. Intermittently, gently swirl around the kernels in the pot to prevent sugar from burning. Once kernels start to pop, shake the pot frequently so sugar does not burn and popped kernels rise to the top.

When popping slows to 1 second between pops, remove pot from heat and remove lid.

Step 3

Carefully pour popped corn into large bowl to cool (careful, kernels can still pop at this time), then sprinkle with the sea salt. Once the kettle corn starts to cool, they may stick together because of the sugar. Once it is completely cool, you can easily break up the clumps.
