I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Caramel Corn

My family loves caramel corn. I always make it for Christmas Eve when we watch our traditional movie, "Muppet's Christmas Carol".

CARAMEL CORN (serves 10)

*3 1/2 quarts popped popcorn, (about 1/2 cup unpopped)
*1/2 cup butter
*1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
*1/4 cup light corn syrup
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
*1/4 teaspoon baking soda

~Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
~Grease well a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan, or a roasting pan.
~Pop pop corn.
~Carefully remove all unpopped pop corn.
~Set popped corn aside.
~Melt butter in large heavy saucepan.
~Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.
~Bring to a boil.
~Reduce heat and boil 5 minutes.
~Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and baking soda.
~Pour syrup over popcorn mixture and mix well.
