Place the oil and 3 individual popcorn kernels in a large pot. Turn stove to medium heat and cover.
Once the 3 popcorn kernels have popped, the oil is hot enough. It's time to add in the sugar and stir well.
When the sugar has been mixed in completely, add the remaining kernels to the pot and cover.
Give the pot a shake for 3-4 seconds, (holding it to keep the lid on!) then let sit for 3-4 seconds, repeat this continuously until the popping begins to slow down. Once it's almost done popping, remove the lid and shake the salt over the popcorn. Give it another shake to mix it in then remove from heat and uncover.
Remove and place in a bowl or paper bags and serve!
shake the pot a lot while you are making it so it doesn't burn!
