This recipe is adapted from Rachael Ray's recipe for Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn.
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp white sugar
1/3 cup popping corn
a pinch or two of sea salt
A hand-crank popcorn maker for the stove-top or a large dutch oven pot.
Add the oil to your stove-top popcorn maker or a large dutch oven pot and heat it on medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the popcorn kernels and listen for them to sizzle and begin to pop.
Add the sugar over top of the kernels and if you're using a popcorn maker with a hand crank, be sure to crank continuously until the popping stops.
If you're using a dutch oven pot, simply shake the pot back and forth slightly over the heat while the kernels pop so the sugar doesn't burn.
Remove the pot from the heat as soon as the popping slows to a stop and immediately pour the popped kernels into a large bowl.
Sprinkle the popcorn with a pinch or two of salt, toss well, and serve warm!
The sweet sugary coating on this popcorn is so subtle, but it's creates a beautiful crunch and it's just so perfect with the sea salt! Did I mention I love anything sweet and salty??
This recipe makes about 9 cups of popcorn, and a 3-cup serving is only 7 Weight Watchers SmartPoints, making it a great choice for a sweet and salty treat!
