Kettle Corn

So the thing about that sometimes it sucks. And other times it's busy and some of the times sucking and busy join forces and really just make me want to curl up in bed with my cats and never leave. That's not really an option though, so instead I make kettle corn and feel just a little bit better about life.

It's also so simple and quick that it can be made even when you're terribly busy. Also, if you share it, all of you're friends will love you. But they'll also hate you because it's totally addictive.

Taken from: Joy the Baker Cookbook

2 Tbs vegetable oil
2 Tbs unsalted butter
1/2 cup yellow corn kernels
3 Tbs granulated sugar
1 tsp salt (or to taste)

1) Heat oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat, then add the butter and allow it to melt. Add the corn kernels and sprinkle the sugar as evenly as possible. Place the lid on the pot and turn the heat up to medium-high.

2) When the popping beings (using oven mitts - this is important if you place value in not burning your hands) remove the pot from the heat and shake it around a bit, then return to the heat. Shake again every thirty seconds until the popping stops.

3) Once the popping stops, remove the pot from the heat and sprinkle the salt over the popped corn.
