"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Melt butter. Stir in sugar and syrup. Cook on medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly. When boiling don't stir and let cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add soda, salt and vanilla. Pour syrup over popped corn on trays, or the large aluminum roasters work well. (they even clean up nice if you just place them in hot water). Bake at 250 for one hour stirring every 15 minutes. I use a spatula and butter knives.
