These are THE perfect Old Fashioned "stick to your teeth" popcorn balls that I had when I was a kid !! I made 2 batches and passed them around to friends and some elderly neighbors !! EVERYONE went wild for them ! I did add 1 Tbs. of cider vinegar to the sugar and syrup, wich added just the right flavor !! AWESOME !!! Five stars all the way !!

I live with my husband near Seattle. I'm a college administrator, a Mac geek, a Deadhead, and a fat activist. I love to mess around (and make a mess) in the kitchen--there isn't much that I don't like to cook. My pie crust is getting almost as good as my mother's, and that's saying something! <img src="http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z265/marymcg/RegSwap1.jpg" border="0" alt="Summer 2007 Regional Swap"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg" border="0" alt="2007 Fall and Halloween Swap"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_36055_t.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Birthday%20and%20Celebration%20Images/Calendargirls2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/Halloween/4811_180759.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
