Spread freshly popped corn in a large, shallow sheet pan (I use 2 dripper 9X13 pans). Put it in a very slow oven (250) to keep warm and crisp.
Combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a 2 qt sausepan. Place on medium heat, stiring until sugar disolves. Continue to boil to the firm ball stage (248) about 5 minutes.
