    Question:Colored- Popcorn

    Colored Popcorn
    Just wondering about the hot water/sugar mixture. About how long should I let it boil and should it be a gooey mixture before I pour it on the (hot) pop corn?
    Is there anyway to make sure the pop corn can keep for a few days?
    Thanks!

    You can't judge this by time alone. You really must check the temperature. Even the cold-water-test isn't all that accurate, but if you don't have a thermometer, what you're looking for: when you drop a bit of syrup into a bowl of cold water, it forms a ball, but when you take the ball out of the water, it sags under its own weight, and does not hold its shape at all. This is still a relatively thin syrup, and should not be very "gooey."

    These coated popcorns tend to have a decent shelf life, certainly at least a few days. The trick is to make sure it is all absolutely cool before you package it - if it is at all warm, it will release moisture and get soggy. Once it is absolutely cool, then package in airtight containers - sealed bags, or canisters, or whatever. You need to keep moisture away from it.
