Honey Thyme Kettle Corn

Updated: Jan 7, 2021

Honey Thyme kettle corn isn't very Christmas-ey, but I thought it was worth sharing with you guys. It has a very distinct flavor which is made by a mix of the thyme, salt, and pepper. It isn't crunchy like most types of kettle corn, but it isn't soft like normal popcorn, which makes it all the more unique, interesting, and tasty. Let's get started:

What You'll Need:

A pot with a lid

Oven mittens

A Cookie sheet

Parchment Paper or tin foil

A microwavable bowl that can hold 1+ cups

A large bowl


1/2 cup popcorn

3 tbs. honey

1/3 cup canola/vegetable oil

3 tbs. melted butter

2 tsp. thyme

Salt and pepper, to taste

Step 1: Turn your burner to a little above medium heat and put your pot on the heat.

Step 2: Pour your canola oil in and get it evenly coated on the bottom of the pot, then put three kernels in.

Step 3: While the kernels are heating, take your butter and microwave it in your bowl for around 25 seconds.

Step 4: Put the honey and the thyme in the melted butter and stir until it's mixed.

Step 5: Your three kernels have probably popped by now, so pour the rest of the kernels in and evenly spread the kernels on the bottom.

Step 6: Wait about 30 seconds, then put your oven mittens on and start shaking every 5-10 seconds.

Step 7: Once the popcorn is only popping every 1-2 seconds, take your pot off the burner and pour the popcorn in your large bowl.

Step 8: Spread the honey, butter, and thyme mixture on the popcorn and toss it. Then pour it on to your lined cookie sheet and put it in the oven on 325° for 20 minutes.

Step 9: Once the 20 minutes are up, season the popcorn with the salt and pepper, let it sit to cool for 1-2 minutes, then pour right back into your large bowl and enjoy!
