    I used a large pot to successfully avoid the issue others had with boil over. I also used one teaspoon of baking soda and one tablespoon of ginger. It is not clear in the recipe, but I divided the popcorn between two 9x13 pans and halved the boiled mixture between both. I strongly suggest someone help stir one pan as you stir the other. This sets pretty fast. The recipe provides plenty of coating and crunch. I'm going to make this again tomorrow and drizzle a very light amount of melted white chocolate or icing on top of the cooled popcorn to improve the presentation. I made two batches.

    Yummy! I think this would make great Christmas gifts. I used the whole tbsp of ginger; it sort of gives the aroma of ginger snap cookies. I also used the full tsp of baking soda and didn't have a problem with it foaming too much (maybe my baking soda was a little on the old side, so it didn't react as much as it would have if it were fresh?).

    Fabulous tasting candy!! I followed the recipe exactly & like the flavour!! I also like that there is a large portion of candy to popcorn - made it really easy to coat the popcorn. I found that the candy ended up somewhat granular instead of smooth & crispy.

    I was concerned that the amount of ground ginger is incorrect and only used a teaspoon instead of a Tablespoon. Great flavor, but I would suggest using only 1/2 tsp of baking soda (or you will be cleaning the foaming monster off your stove afterward). Because I used the full teaspoon of baking soda, I did not get a smooth caramel "glaze" over the popcorn like I expected. Instead, it remained somewhat bubbly-looking even after stirring and baking the popcorn. With that being said, I was still very impressed by how easy the recipe was and how delicious it was. The popcorn came apart very easily after baking, as well :) Thanks for posting!
