Dutch Oven - Kettle Corn


This is an epic failure. Perhaps your mileage may vary. I'll post the recipe, but beware; this tanked bad. Very bad. The problem was that the popcorn got burned before it all popped. The kettle corn makers, have a giant copper kettle and an oar to stir it with. If I could have stirred it, it may have turned out better.

12" Dutch oven
350 degrees
Roasting

butter
brown sugar
salt
popcorn

Melt butter in 12" Dutch oven, adding salt and sugar. Add popcorn. Cook until burnt. Throw away. Scrub your Dutch oven, and resolve to try it again another way.

  1. after the butter/oil is fairly hot, add the popcorn in a single layer. put the lid back on the pot.


    after the corn has popped a spell, then add the sugar and salt. stir with wooden spoon or something similar (no metal) briefly until sugar/salt is carmelized.

    You still get some blacked kernels here and there, but better than your picture.
