Remember how it was?  Twilight, a fuzzy blanket with satin
trim
falling on your shoulders, fireflies fluttering, fresh cut
grass, cricket's songs, and
playing tag-your-it .

Vintage popcorn recipes discovered in old recipe boxes,
handwritten on papers, and other cool places from the
cooking 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.

and stir and toss constantly over medium heat 3
to 50 minutes. Or until sugar is dissolved and
corn is evenly and completely coated with
mixture.  Remove and form into balls.  Use

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 microwave 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 kernels made when hitting bottom.
As soon as the first kernel 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 flea markets, estate auctions, and
the like.  I will give credit when I can.  Each is written exactly at the card or
letter states.
