This syrup can also be made on the stove top if you do not have a paper bag,boil ingredients 2 thru 5 for five minutes stirring occasionally on a low boil carefully not scorching, turn off stove top and add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda stirring well until syrup looks light in color and foamy: then place popcorn in large pot adding syrup a little at a time and coating the popcorn(this is great time for kids to help ! ) after adding all the syrup and the popcorn in coated evenly ~ Enjoy !
