Further Notes on making popcorn

Make sure you cover the pot while corn is looking otherwise the popcorn will fall to the ground.

Use low to medium heat to cook your popcorn otherwise it might get burnt.

After  all the corn has popped, switch off the cooker before adding sugar and mixing with the popcorn. Otherwise the sugar will melt and then burn giving your popcorn a burnt taste.

Don’t put too many corn grains in the pot. The amount of grains you put should barely cover the base of the cooking pot
