You Say Carmel, I Say Caramel

Actually, I pronounce it "carmel".  As in CARaMEL Corn!  Yum.  

It is a fall favorite in our house, though I don't remember making it often in the last couple years.  I made it yesterday for my daughter to take to a party and none of us wanted to send it away!  Today, I thought I'd share the recipe.  It's so easy to make.

Caramel Corn

1 cup butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light or dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 quarts popcorn

Melt butter in a medium saucepan, then stir in sugar, corn syrup and salt.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Boil without stirring for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla.  Put popcorn in two large baking pans (I use cheap foil roasting pans so I can throw them away instead of having to clean them).  Gradually pour caramel over popcorn, mixing well.  Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.  Spread on waxed paper to cool.  Store in an airtight container.
