  Categories: Candies, Desserts
       Yield: 13 Servings
  
      20 c  Popcorn (1 cup unpopped)
       2 c  Sugar
       1 c  Water
     1/2 c  Light corn syrup
       1 ts Vinegar
     1/2 ts Salt
       1 ts Vanilla
  
   Preheat oven to 300. Remove all unpopped kernels from popped corn. Put
   popcorn in a large roasting pan; keep warm in oven.  Butter the sides
   of a 2-quart saucepan.  In it combine sugar, water, corn syrup,
   vinegar, and salt. Cook to 270 deg (soft-crack stage), stirring
   frequently (mixture should boil gently over entire surface).  Remove
   from heat; stir in vanilla.  Slowly pour mixture over hot popcorn.
   Stir just until mixed. Butter hands; using a buttered cup, sccop up
   popcorn mixture. Shape with buttered hands into 2-1/2 to 3-inch balls.
