No Kettle Kettle Corn

easy peasy and in the microwave! Still better on the stove top though LINK.
2 tablespoons Ghee/clarified butter (not clarified will burn, the clarified has a higher smoking point)
OR use 1 tablespoon of canola or vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon of clarified butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Kosher salt
1/3 cup popping corn

You also need a large microwave safe bowl, glass. A vented lid, I used my splatter guard.
In the bowl heat the butter/oil, sugar and salt in the microwave to melt the butter. Stir in the popcorn. Cover the bowl with the vented lid. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes depending on your microwave. Listen carefully, once the popcorn starts to slow down and pops after 1-2s second a kernel instead of continuously stop the microwave. The bowl will be hot. Stir the popcorn to distribute any sugar and serve.
