This is made with a hand crank popper. I found mine at a church yard sale for $1.00 (new they go for $30.00). I've since bought 2 more (for kids) for $2.00 and $3.00.
Important....Spray crank type popcorn popper with Pam
1 1/2 T veg oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
Place first 3 ingredients in popper. Cook over med-high heat rapidly turning crank. Once kernels begin to pop reduce heat to low and continue cranking till popping stops. Place in bowl and sprinkle with salt.
