Family Recipe

Darling Daughter decided to test one of our family recipes that was in our family cookbook. This recipe came from Dave's grandmother and is made by many of the family members. It's absolutely delicious and well worth the effort. I don't have a sweet tooth but even I couldn't keep my hands off. If you are interested in this cookbook, you can find it here:

Grandma Hacking's Caramel Corn

As Dave's younger sister states "I remember having this every time we went to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Tooele when we lived in Santaquin for several years. We loved it and looked forward to it." Enjoy!

2 Cups brown sugar

½ Cup Karo syrup

1 tsp salt

2 sticks butter

1 t baking soda

6 quarts of popcorn

Mix first four ingredients in heavy sauce pan.

Boil 5 minutes, then add 1 tsp baking soda and stir. Pour over 6 quarts popcorn. Bake 1 hour at 200, stirring every 15 minutes.

Glad to see you did a recipe book. Still working on mine. This recipe looks very "healthy."

I had a deadline. The only way it got finished so fast. You are taking the time to take your own pics. It will be worth the wait. This "healthy" recipe came from a very respected homemaker that said "all recipes start with a stick of butter and a cup of cream".
