sara's caramel popcorn

right before i took this picture...i dropped my camera. shattered the display beyond recognition. so i am not responsible for the quality of these pictures. i'm slightly impressed with their quality, since i couldn't see anything at all. so this is my sister sara's famous caramel popcorn that she and her husband used to make every sunday and watch the x-files.

let's get started. you'll need some popped popcorn, karo syrup, brown sugar, butter, salt, and baking soda.
pop your popcorn however you like. i like the airpopper.
but whatever.
after your popcorn is done, melt a stick (1/2 cup) butter in a saucepan.
add in 1/4 cup of karo syrup,
and 1 cup of brown sugar.

mix and combine well,

and bring to a boil.then add in 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. baking soda.


stir, and it will start to get very...frothy.
like this. keep stirring....
as you pour it over your popcorn.
stir until it's evenly distributed among the popcorn....and enjoy!

so easy and SO good.
