Caramel Popcorn

This is my grandma's caramel popcorn recipe. We usually end up eating at least half of it before we ever take it off the pan. :)

The caramel can be a little fussy. This is not a sticky caramel coating, more sugared. The key is stirring the caramel around the edges of the pot every once in a while during cooking, and stirring well before pouring on the popcorn.
