2.  Heat oil in a 3L/ 3-quart pot on medium high heat. Put few popcorn kernels into the oil and cover the pan.

3.  When the kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn kernels into the oil in an even layer. Cover, and remove from heat for 30 secs.

4.  (The 30-seconds method is to ensure that all of the other kernels are at a near-popping temperature so that when they are put back on the heat, they all pop at about the same time.)

5.  Return the pot to the heat and wait for the popping sound. Once it has started popping, gently shake the pot back and forth over the stove. (This is a very important step or else your popcorn will get burnt at the bottom of pot)

6.  Try to keep the lid slightly ajar for the steam to escape. The popcorn will be drier and crispier.

7.  Once the popping has slows to several seconds in between pops, remove from heat and immediately transfer to a greased bowl.

8.  Add a pinch of salt and roughly give it a stir. Pour in the caramel sauce and stir till all popcorns are well coated.

9.  Transfer to the prepared baking tray in a thin layer. Bake for 45 mins, stirring every 15 mins. Remove from oven and leave to cool completely before breaking into pieces.

Cooks' note:
? Method of making these perfect popcorn is adapted from Simple Recipes.

? For the caramel sauce, please refer to the recipe under my profile. Thanks.

? If there is any leftover, store in an airtight container.

? If you can find at your place, i would highly recommend to use "mushroom popcorn kernels" which when popped, they are rounder and bigger.
