Place oil and popcorn in a large skillet that has a tight fitting lid.(Note: This may take a little practice, but well worth the effort!)
The popcorn should barely cover the bottom surface. Heat over
medium until the first kernel starts to pop. Quickly stir in the sugar
until dissolved. Cover and continuously shake skillet while holding
top. Be careful, this will burn much quicker than regular popcorn.
When you think all is popped, remove from heat. Spoon the popped
corn into a bowl while shaking once in a while to let the uncooked
kernels settle. Salt lightly, and break up into pieces.
