Mom's Carmel Corn
20 cups (5qt) popped corn, put in roaster pan*
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup white syrup (Karo)
1 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
*I did have to consult on the amount of unpopped corn to equal popped, and was told that this is how much fits in her roaster, about 2-3 poppers full. Also, an air popper for the corn is essential, as the microwave variety just doesn't turn out right.
- Combine sugar, butter, syrup, salt in a large saucepan. Bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes. Stir in soda. (This will foam up and is very hot.)
- Pour over popped corn.
- Bake in 250deg oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
- Spread on foil to cool. Store in airtight container.
