Snackshot of the Day: Kettle Corn

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Watch kettle corn being made in the traditional style at the St. Paul Farmers' Market.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of fresh kettle corn popping at the St. Paul Farmers' Market in St. Paul, Minn. Kettle corn is a sweet and salty version of popcorn, traditionally made in cast-iron kettles, hence the name. It's a common treat sold at fairs and carnivals, but it's also available in stores, and even comes in microwavable forms. To make kettle corn, simply add sugar to the pot when popping popcorn on the stove.
