Make Your Own Maple Kettle Corn

21 Oct

If you have frequented any apple orchards or pumpkin farms this year, you are totally aware of the need to buy every single treat they are pushing in their farm stores. Between the apple cider donuts, fresh pies, locally grown squash, and delicious kettle corn, it’s hard to say no. Look closely at the ingredient list of everything you buy. Just because something looks homemade, definitely doesn’t mean it is. A local pie producer (who makes fabulous pies, by the way) includes less than desirable ingredients. Total bummer.

Lyla and I enjoyed a sample handful of maple kettle corn the other weekend. I wondered how I could make this sweet treat at home, with real ingredients.

A few things about this recipe:

  • Use real maple syrup! None of that fake corn syrup stuff.
  • I typically use coconut oil when I’m making regular kettle corn. I chose avocado oil this time because I didn’t want the coconut flavor to overpower the maple flavor that I was going for in this recipe and it’s a great oil for cooking at high heat.
  • Because maple and bacon are two pretty rockin’ flavors together, I think using bacon grease would be another great option.
  • What do you think about cooking bacon, breaking it into small pieces, and sprinkling it in with the kettle corn? I think absolutely yes.
