Grandma's recipe becomes tradition.
MY NAME is Rachel Dennis. I am in the sixth grade at Shasta Middle School. This is my first year to help with our school's yearbook and I am enjoying it.
I like to snorkel, scuba dive and synchronize swim. I once took lessons from a champion synchronize swimmer from Chile.
I look forward to reading to my neighbor, LaVerl. She and I share ice cream and the love of our spoon collections.
My greatest love is horseback riding. I have learned to do pole-bending, barrel-racing and by-wrangle and I recently had my first lesson in bareback riding.
This recipe is one my grandmother got from her sister, Wanda Mae, when she visited her in Denver. It has been a favorite family treat since 1978.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch baking soda
Large bowl of popped popcorn
Put sugar, butter and syrup in a saucepan on medium high heat and stir continuously. When mixture starts to boil, set timer for 2 minutes and keep stirring. When timer goes off, remove the pan from the heat. Add vanilla and stir in.
Next, take a nice healthy "pinch" of baking soda and stir that in completely.
Pour mixture over popped popcorn and stir until all of the popcorn is covered. Enjoy!
