Ingredients (4)

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt


Ubiquitous at state fairs and farmers’ markets, kettle corn is an easy snack to make at home. This basic recipe uses nothing more than salt and sugar for flavoring, but you could add in some spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, or five-spice) if you like.


  1. 1Heat the oil over medium heat in a large pot until shimmering. Add the kernels, cover with a tightfitting lid, and shake to evenly distribute. Once the kernels start popping, gently shake the pot until the popping subsides, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. 2Remove from the heat, immediately sprinkle with the sugar and salt, and toss to combine.
