 **In the North country the people make one of the aristocrats of sweets, maple
syrup. It cooks down to a delicious candy, but is delicate, so watch 
  In a heavy saucepan put the maple syrup and butter.
 Cook to 260~ on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Stir
well and pour over the popped corn. Shape into balls.
 
   Both pecans and walnuts are good with maple, it’s hard to say which is better.
