Start your Own Tradition

My mom found this in the newspaper when we were kids and started making it at the holidays. That's how it all began. Thanks mom.

Grandma Arlene's Carmel Corn
2 c brown sugar
1c butter
1/2 c light corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp Vanilla
7 1/2 quarts popped corn--divided into 2 aluminum roasting pans

Boil butter, sugar, syrup and salt in a saucepan for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add baking soda and vanilla - mix thoroughly (caution-rapid expansion of mixture).

Pour over popped corn, mixing immediately--2 man job. Place coated corn (which is in aluminum roasters) into 200 degree oven for 1 hour--stirring at 15 minute intervals. Cool on large clean surface.
