I went to the Old Folks Home this past weekend. That's what I lovingly call my parents house. Really, they aren't that old, but it's still fun to say. I probably shouldn't put that on here, Mom reads this once in a while. She might get upset with me and disown me, or worse, she could stop giving me her coupons she get on Sunday! Sorry Mom. I will not refer to your house anymore as the Old Folks Home (at least not publicly......if I can remember...)
Anyway, I forgot to take my camera to take pictures of the lovely things I made to eat. I actually only cooked once, and that was Sunday lunch. I got home from Sunday meetings sooner than Mom did, so I decided to whip something up. I looked in the fridge and pulled out a couple of things, looked in the pantry and pulled out a couple more things, and then grabbed a couple more things out of the freezer. No recipe, just threw things together. What I came up with wasn't too bad. Not too great either, but edible. My sweet hubby politely asked me not to make that again. Bet you are glad I forgot my camera, hu? Not that I would really post my less than kitchen success recipe.....
Honestly, I have no idea what any of that has to do with this recipe. It has NOTHING to do with this recipe. I guess I just, I don't know, just, something..... Anywho, this is my favorite popcorn recipe. I love it! It is sweet, salty and perfect.
I found the recipe on All Recipes.
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
Pour oil into a large pot. Add 3 kernels of corn, cover with a lid and turn the heat to medium high. When the 3 kernels pop, add the sugar and popcorn and reduce the heat to medium. Cook, shaking about every 10 second, until the popping slows to 2 to 3 seconds between pops. Remove from heat and shake until popping ceases. Remove the lid with the pot tilted away from you (just in case) and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and stir. Be careful - the sugar on the popcorn will be VERY hot!
