    1      cup           Sugar
      1/4  cup           Brown sugar
      1/4  cup           Water
      1/2  cup           Light corn syrup
      1/4  cup           Butter

 * 2 tbls of unpopped popcorn will produce 4 cups (or 1 ounce) of popped popcorn.
 
   Place popcorn in large buttered baking pan. Put the sugars, water, and corn
 syrup into a heavy pan over medium heat and stir. After the mix has boiled,
 scrape sides of pan. Place a candy thermometer in the pan and cook, without
 further stirring, to 250~. Remove pan from heat and stir in butter, baking soda,
 anise extract and food coloring. Pour over popcorn, mixing well. Bake,
 uncovered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. When cooled, store in air-tight
 containers.
