"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was copied by Grandma Allspach with many other collected recipes in the "Farmer's Pocket Ledger" compliments of F. H. Berk & Company, Trenton, Ohio.

You have to estimate the amount of popped corn as the recipe is vague on that issue. Mom made caramel pop corn often, but she pressed the coated corn in a large buttered pan and cut them in squares for eating. It may have been this same recipe.
