Get Your Pop on at the Rodeo

If you missed the world famous Frontier Days this year, which takes place every summer in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but are still craving the delicious goodies that one finds at the rodeo, then I have good news for you. It’s not too late to experience a genuine, heart-stopping rodeo. August and September just happen to be prime season for rodeos in Colorado. Not to worry if you can’t fit the rodeo in this year, you can still grab a bag of your favorite treat and take a seat on a sun warmed porch to delight in munching on some rodeotastic Kettle Corn. Boots and hats not required.

Kettle Corn recipe from Pinch My Salt http://pinchmysalt.com/2009/11/24/lets-get-old-fashioned-homemade-kettle-corn-recipe/

Ingredients

¼ Cup Ghee
½ Cup Popcorn Kernels
¼ Cup Sugar
Fine Grain Sea Salt

Method

Over medium heat in a large pot, melt your ghee. Add a few popcorn kernels and put the lid on the pot. When the kernels pop, add the rest of your kernels and evenly distribute. Sprinkle your sugar over top. Replace your lid and when the kernels start to pop, just shake the pot around. When the popping slows to every few seconds, remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and devour. Giddy-up!
