½ cup butter
¼ cup white corn syrup
½ tsp. salt
4 qts. popped corn*
½ tsp. baking soda
Combine all except corn and baking soda. Cook in microwave on high for 3½ minutes. Remove. Stir in baking soda. Place popcorn in large paper bag. Pour syrup over corn. Close bag and shake. In bag, microwave on high 1½ minutes. Shake bag and cook an additional 1½ minutes. Remove from microwave and shake again. Allow to cool.
*If using microwave popcorn, use natural flavor. If using butter flavor, do not add the salt. 4 quarts= 2 bags.
