Kettle Corn

Take a trip to the county fair with a bowl of old-fashioned Kettle Corn. Your family will never want plain popcorn again! If you use white sugar, it will taste like popcorn balls and if you use brown sugar, it will taste like caramel corn.

Instant Pot® Popcorn

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
I love popcorn cooked in oil but do not love the mess it makes on my stove, so I decided to give it a try in the Instant Pot®. Not only does the coconut oil give it that movie theater flavor, there was ZERO grease splatter. I listed salt as a generic seasoning but feel free to experiment with flavors such as powdered cheese, ranch powder, Frank's® powdered Red Hot® seasoning, etc.
