Step 1: Here's what your going to need.
1/4 Cup unpopped popcorn
1/4 Cup olive or corn oil (Olive oil will give it a lighter, cleaner taste)
2 Tablespoons sugar ( I prefer cane sugar)
1/4 teaspoon Salt
One or two quart sauce pan
You may also want to have some safety glasses and an oven mitt handy because it can get pretty wild when things get popping.
