Molasses Popcorn Balls
|Light molasses||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Dark corn syrup||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Vinegar||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Butter/Margarine||1 1⁄2 Tablespoon|
|Popped corn||1 1⁄2 Quart|
Combine the molasses, corn syrup, and vinegar in a saucepan, and cook, stirring occasionally to 240°F.
Then continue cooking, stirring constantly, to 270°F or until a little of the mixture dropped into cold water is slightly brittle.
When done, add the butter and stir only enough to mix.
Sprinkle the salt over the corn in a large bowl.
Then slowly pour the syrup over it, while mixing well.
Then quickly shape into balls, using as little pressure as possible.
