1 cup sugar
1/3 cup white corn syrup
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 quarts popped popcorn (2 large microwave bags)


Directions

TO PREPARE:


Combine sugar, syrup, water, butter, salt and vinegar. Cook, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking, without stirring until syrup reaches 270 on a candy thermometer or forms a firm ball when a little bit is dropped in a cup of cold water. Add vanilla. Pour syrup over popped popcorn, stirring until all kernels are covered. Rub butter on hands and shape into balls, about the size of a tennis ball. Make in small batches and do not double this recipe. May add color for holidays.
