I’m not sure why, but Fall to me means popcorn time. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Fall also means pumpkins, cinnamon and snack size candies (Hellloooo Halloween candy aisle — I missed you)…but it also means it’s time for caramel corn and kettle corn!
During the Fall months growing up, my Mom used to surprise my sister and I with caramel corn (speaking of caramel corn, you totally have to try this Cranberry Orange Caramel Corn!) when we got off the bus. Then on trips to a little town called Old Town Spring, we used to buy a big bag of Kettle Corn. It was made in a big metal cauldron and I always thought it was so cool.
Years later I discovered that Kettle Corn isn’t all that mysterious. You don’t have to have a big metal cauldron to make it! Heck, you just have to have a big pot!
Head on over to Dixie Crystals to find out how I made this Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn!
