Be sure to stir as you add the sugar so it gets nice and caramelized.
Coconut Kettle Corn
This cleaned-up kettle corn satisfies those pesky salty/sweet cravings without all of the refined sugar. It’s the perfect afternoon snack or movie night treat.
6 tablespoons coconut sugar
2 teaspoons maldon salt
3 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
½ cup non-GMO popping corn
1. Combine coconut sugar and sea salt in a small bowl.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large metal pasta pot (or similar) over medium-high heat. Melt the remaining two tablespoons in a separate saucepan and set aside until needed.
3. First, add two corn kernels to test the oil temperature, cover with the lid leaving it slightly ajar, and cook until the kernels pop. (When it pops you’ll know the oil is ready.)
4. Then add the ½ cup of corn and cook with the lid slightly ajar, shaking the pot every 30 seconds or so, until almost all of the corn has popped (you’ll know because there will suddenly be much longer breaks between popping sounds).
5. Turn off the heat and pour over the remaining 2 tablespoons coconut oil, tossing with a wooden spoon. Continuously sprinkle over the coconut sugar and salt mixture, constantly stirring with the wooden spoon to evenly coat all of the kernels.
6. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet to cool before eating.
