Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I remember Aunt Waneta coming to our house so that Grandma Maymie and she could make popcorn balls. (I think Grandma called them "crackerjack balls.") I remember that they stirred the hot syrup into the popcorn and then would pick up a handful to form it into a ball and would jump around and pass it from the right hand to the left to cool it off. I found this Caramel Popcorn recipe, which is in Karen's handwriting, and wondered if she copied this at Grandma's house. I thought this might bring back memories to those who'd eaten Grandma's and Aunt Waneta's popcorn balls.
