Stef’s Caramel Corn

Provided by Charlotte Ekstrom

6 quarts popped corn
1/2 cup Karo syrup
4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/2 tsp salt

Bring brown sugar, Karo syrup, butter, cream of tartar, and salt to a boil and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp baking soda. (Beware, this becomes foamy). Pour over popped corn in a large roasting pan (disposable aluminum turkey roasting pans work great). Bake at 250 degrees for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Pour over waxed paper, spread out and let cool.
