Popcorn Balls 02
The easy answer for caramel popcorn and pecan pie recipes is
to buy a bottle of Karo corn syrup. The recipes are on the
bottle label. I'll include the caramel popcorn recipe here.
3 Qt. Popped corn
1 Cup Brown sugar
1/2 Cup Corn syrup
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
Preheat oven to 250F. Place popped corn (popped kernels
only) in large shallow roasting pan; let stand in oven while
preparing glaze. In saucepan combine brown sugar, corn
syrup, butter and salt. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil
over medium heat. Without stirring, boil 5 minutes (If you
have a candy/deep fry thermometer remove from heat at 245F).
Remove from heat; stir in baking soda and vanilla. Pour
over warm popcorn; toss to coat well. Bake 60 minutes,
stirring every 15 minutes. Cool, stirring frequently. Form
into balls if desired. Store in tightly-covered container.
