Caramel Corn

If you have never had the pleasure of making homemade caramel corn then your in for a real treat. Every Fall I have warm memories of my child hood and all the fun traditions we had during this time. Caramel corn just happens to be one of those. I am sure you all remember Cracker Jacks and how all you ever cared about was the toy? Well, good ole' Cracker Jacks do not have anything on a fresh batch of caramel corn. Make some with your family for Fall memories that will last a life time.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
10 cups popped popcorn

1. Preheat oven to 250F. In a 2-quart saucepan on medium-high heat add butter, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup and baking soda, stir until well mixed. Remove from heat add vanilla, mix well.

2. In a 13 x 9 inch baking pan add popcorn. Carefully pour caramel mixture atop then mix well trying to coat all of popcorn. Place in oven checking on corn every 10 minutes and mixing with a wooden spoon to insure all corn is coated. Allow to bake for 1 hour.

Yields: 12 servings
