recipe box Wednesday

The holiday edition of Recipe Box Wednesday (unearthing treausures from

an old wooden recipe box I found at a yard sale this summer) finishes up

with this dandy, that would be wonderful to have as you ring in the new



2 c. brown sugar

1 c. butter

1/2 c. light corn syrup

pinch salt

Boil all ingredients for 5 minutes, add 1 tsp. baking soda (mixture will foam

a bit, so make sure you use a big enough saucepan). Pour over 5 quarts of

popped corn, add 1 cup of peanuts (optional).

Butter a cookie sheet, pour corn onto it.  Bake one hour at 250, stirring


I have used a similar recipe, and instead of popcorn have used Old Dutch

Puffcorn.  The recipe is right on the back of the bag, and if you have never

made it you MUST.  It is completely addictive, and the whole batch will be

gone before you know it.

Happy sweet crunching!
