Remember yesterday?  Evening twilight falling like a fuzzy blanket with
satin trim, fireflies floating above fresh cut grass, cricket's songs, and
games like "tag-your-it" in full swing.

Vintage popcorn recipes discovered in old recipe boxes, handwritten on
papers, and other cool places from the cookin days of the 40's 50's and
60's.  So, if I didn't find the recipe in one of the above aforementioned
places, then the recipe isn't added to my site.  Simple as that.


FYI -  I find popcorn and clowns very scary.

Popcorn Wreaths by unknown Lady.  Her recipe box was filled with the
most interesting recipes.  Some newspaper recipes in the box were dated
1973.  That gives you an idea of the time frame.

For each wreath, make a quart of popcorn or enough to fill a ring mold to
the depth of 2 inches.  Prepare the syrup by combining 1 cup light corn
syrup, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, and 1 tsp. vinegar in a sauce pan.

Add several drops food coloring.  Cook over medium heat stirring only until
sugar dissolves.  Continue cooking syrup until candy thermometer registers
260 degrees.  Hard ball stage.

Stir in 2 tbsp. butter and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Set aside 1/4 cup syrup for topping.  
Pour remaining syrup over popcorn, in a large bowl.

Stir mixture quickly so that all popcorn pieces are coated with syrup.  Pour
mixture into a well greased ring mold.

Let set a few minutes until syrup adheres, but is still sticky.  Remove wreath
from mold and place on sheet of plastic wrap.

Decorate - Warm the reserved glaze and pour over wreath to secure
decoration.  Let wreath set until firm.

toss constantly over medium heat 3 to 50 minutes. or until

Right about then, that old wooden screen door would swing open with
mom calling you in.  It was Friday night and that meant tv.

Mom would let us help make scrumptious treats.  We would laugh and
talk while fixing snacks. Homemade pizzas and popcorns were my
favorite.  See back then there were no pizza deliveries, no mircrowave
popcorn, you did it yourself.

Mom would pull out the biggest pan she had, pour in Crisco oil till the
bottom was covered, then in went popcorn from a bag!  A bag!  I still
remember the "pat-a-pat" sound little curnels made when hitting bottom.
As soon as the first kernal popped, we each got a turn, shaking the pan
back and forth over the stove's burner.

I would like to share popcorn recipes with you from those evenings long
ago.  Maybe you can create a few memories with your family.  As usual,
these recipes were found in recipe boxes found at fleamarkets, estate
auctions, and the like.  I will give credit when I can.  Each is written
exactly at the card or letter states.
