    Cherry Almond Popcorn Clusters

    2 cups granulated sugar
    1 1/2 cups water
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    1 cup red glacé cherries, cut into quarters
    1/2 cup toasted blanched whole almonds

    After popcorn is popped, keep it warm in a 300 degrees F oven.

    In a heavy medium-size saucepan, combine sugar, water, corn syrup, vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil. Clip a candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Cook syrup to 250 degrees F (hard ball stage).
    Stir in almond extract. Scatter cherries and almonds over the popcorn.
    Slowly pour syrup over all; toss lightly to coat evenly.
    Spread popcorn on buttered cookie sheet. Cool. Separate into clusters with a fork.

    Yields about 6 quarts.
