    Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add popcorn and some sugar giving it a quick stir and then cover with lid. Once popcorn starts popping, pick it up and give it a quick shake every few seconds until popping slows down, between 3-4 minutes. Remove immediately from heat and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately. i dunno if this helps but they turn out Delicious... u can remove sugar if u dun like thay sweet and salty taste.

      A few years ago, I came across a recipe from Rachael Ray....I know....but couldn't be easier or more delicious. In a large pot add 1/4 c oil, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup popcorn, cover, lid slightly ajar to allow steam to escape pop. Delicious. Make it all the time.

        Thank you. Will try without the salt.

        Since we're talking about kettle corn, I made it once and the sugar burned and stuck to the bottom of my Farberware pot so bad I thought i had ruined the pot. I've made plenty of good popcorn in that pot, so it's not that the pot isn't heavy enough. I used a tablespoon of oil and shook the pot. Do any of you use more like in the Rachel Rae recipe?
