As the weather turns colder, some people get excited for what the upcoming months will bring.
How does one make the transition without longing for farmers markets, and fairs, and kettlecorn?
This is a recipe you can turn to time and time again when you need a little bit of summer in your life.
Sure popcorn is a higher fiber snack that can be a light and filling choice. But when you add sugar, salt and oil? Well, then it gets a little ishy.
Stovetop Cinnamon Sugar Kettlecorn for Two
1 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
In a heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add one kernel of popcorn, cover the pan, and shake the pan until you hear the kernel pop. Add the remaining ingredients, and continue to shake the pan (~10 shakes per 20 seconds) until you hear the remaining kernels pop. Wait until ~15 seconds goes by in between pops, then remove from heat.
