Homemade Kettle Corn

1/2 cup popcorn
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt

In a large kettle or covered pot heat oil and do the 3 kernel test. When the 3 kernels have popped add the rest of the kernels and sugar. Cover the pot and shake. Every 5-10 seconds remove the pot from the burner and shake for about 3 seconds. Place back on heat keep the kernels popping. When the popping has slowed down significantly, remove from heat and add salt, then shake again to mix the salt in. Pour into a large bowl to eat. Remember to let it cool down a little first so you don't burn yourself. Deeelish!!!
