  • 2/3 cup (150 ml) raw popcorn
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
  • salt, if desired
  • Place popcorn and oil in a large pot that has a tight fitting lid.
  • Popcorn should barely cover the bottom surface.
  • Heat over medium heat until the first kernels start to pop.
  • Quickly stir in the sugar until it is dissolved.
  • Cover and continuously shake, while holding the top.
  • Be careful, this will burn much quicker than regular popcorn.
  • When you think it is all popped, remove from the heat.
  • Pour into a bowl, shaking to settle the unpopped corn.
  • Salt lightly, if desired and break into pieces.
  • NOTE: Sugar can be colored with red food coloring by adding 1/4 tsp (1 ml).
  • food coloring to 1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar, pouring in a sealed bottle, shaking and then let stand 12 hours, shaking again and let stand another 12 hours.
  • Or you can buy colored sugar at the grocery store.
Enjoy!! It is good. Been a long time since I've had any.
