Magic Molasses



Here's a recipe that appears in my book "Handwritten Recipes."


Molasses Popcorn Balls

¾ cup water

1½ cups molasses

1½ cups light brown sugar

1 tablespoon vinegar

¼ teaspoon baking soda

⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar

¾ cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 quarts popcorn

Mix first six ingredients in large saucepan. Place over low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to boiling and cook slowly until it will form a soft ball. Add butter and cook until hard ball stage. Add vanilla and corn.

Form into balls.

Makes 18 to 24 balls.
