Hi Staci,

Ali and I made Kettle Korn on Sunday night.  We ended up having eight people here to eat it and Ali and I made 6 batches and there was not a kernal left an hour later!  We used to do it with a regular pan on the stove.  You have to shake the pan to keep it from burning and it really scratched up our stove.  One day I was at Bed, Bath and Beyond and found a Whirley Pop. It works great.  You can turn the handle and it keeps the popcorn moving in the pan. The whirly pop comes with recipes for many different flavors of popcorn. 

Here is the recipe;
Kettle Korn
1/3 c. popping corn
1/4 c. sugar  (we add and additional 1/8 c. sugar)
1/4 c. oil
Preheat electric stove (just above medium setting)  For gas stoves, preheating is not necessary.
Pour all ingredients into popper. Stir constantly until kernals have finished popping.  Quickly empty Kettle Korn
onto a cookie sheet. When Kettle Korn is cool, break into pieces with a wooden spoon.  Makes approx 4 quarts of kettle korn.

Thanks, Cindy!!!
