    4 quarts popped popcorn
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon white vinegar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup butter
    8 to 10 drops green food coloring
    Directions:
    Place popcorn in a large roasting pan; keep warm in a 250° oven. Meanwhile, in a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugars, water, corn syrup, vinegar and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 250° (hard-ball stage).
    Remove from the heat; stir in butter until melted. Stir in food coloring. Drizzle over warm popcorn and toss to coat. Cool. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6 quarts.
