1/3 cup unpopped popcorn
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1/3 cup sugar
In small bowl, add water to popcorn and set aside.
In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil. Add 2 or 3 kernels of popcorn and cover. Cook over medium-high heat until kernels pop.
Carefully add sugar and popcorn/water (tends to splatter). Cover and cook popcorn over medium-high heat, shaking pan constantly until most of the kernels are popped. Remove from heat immediately to prevent sugar from burning.
Makes about 6 cups.
