A new fall favorite around our house! We've played games with friends and their families a few times this fall. There's something cozy about sitting around chatting and playing games while eating popcorn. I LOVE popcorn. A friend of mine made this the other night and I fell in love...
2/3 c popcorn kernels
3 T oil
1/3 c sugar
salt to taste
Heat a large pot (with lid - see through lids are best, but any lid will work) with 3 T oil and 4 or 5 "test kernels" over medium heat. When you hear the "test kernels" pop add 2/3 c popcorn kernels and 1/3 c sugar. Shake the pot periodically as the popcorn pops to prevent burning on the bottom. When the popping slows, remove pot from heat and transfer popcorn to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with salt and mix. Serve!
Note: Heavier pots seem to work better - less burning on the bottom. :)
