From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Nobody needs this, but it is so easy and so tasty and makes a great holiday sweet to give as gifts. Also, with the knowledge that a handful of raw walnuts eaten daily is a natural nutrient, serve this tossed with lots of walnuts!
6-8 cups popped corn
Pop the corn and place in a glass or ceramic batter bowl. Set aside. In another batter bowl, put sugar, syrup, butter, and salt. Cook in microwave 2 minutes. Using a silicone spatula, stir well. Cook another 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Mixture will be bubbly and funny looking. Pour over the popped corn and stir. Microwave on high 2 minutes. Stir. Cook 2 minutes. Stir. Continue until the corn is coated and turning brown. JUST BEFORE IT BURNS remove and pour out onto buttered or silicon lined pan to cool, tossing in the raw walnuts if using them.
