Servings 4 people


  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup granulated, white sugar
  • salt to taste


  • Put popcorn, oil, sugar in a large, non stick pot (needs to have a lid) or use a stove top popcorn kettle with handle. 
  • Turn heat to med/high and stir sugar, oil and popcorn together to help melt the sugar a little. 
  • Put lid on and once popping begins, shake pot continuously to keep kernels from sticking to bottom of pot.  Once popping slows or stops, dump popcorn into a large bowl and salt lightly.  If using a stove top popper with stir handle, stir continuously until popping slows down and then dump into bowl and lightly salt.  ENJOY!
