All About Popcorn

Popcorn is one of the world's favorite snacks. And guess what? Most of the popcorn in the world is grown right here in the good old U.S.A. In 2001 alone, the U.S. exported 229 million pounds of popcorn!

Popcorn is a source of fiber, also known as roughage. Popcorn is low in calories: 31 - 55 per cup of unbuttered, 133 calories lightly buttered.

Popcorn is sugar free and fat free, yet has energy-producing carbohydrates. It's great for between meal snacks as it does not overfill you or spoil your appetite. And did you know that there are dozens of ways to make popcorn other than just plain popped?

Halloween Kitty


Ingredients:
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 cups popped popcorn, unsalted
2 8 1/2-by-11 inch oval paper plates
1 6-inch dessert paper plates
Aluminum foil
Licorice strings or colored toothpicks (6 2-inch strips)
Licorice rope (1 15-inch strip)
Light corn syrup for assembly

Directions:
Combine sugar, water, salt, 1/2 C. corn syrup and vinegar; cook to hard ball stage (250 degrees Fahrenheit); add vanilla. Pour over popped corn and mix well. Line paper plates with foil and press popcorn mixture firmly into them; allow to cool. Unmold.

With a sharp knife cut a wedge from one end of each large oval to form legs of cat. Trim each small round (head) popcorn shape to fit other end of oval (body). Cut licorice strings into six 2-inch strips and rope licorice into a 15-inch strip.

To assemble, heat corn syrup to a boil and brush over body and head shapes where they fit together; press together to form cat. Brush flat side of one cat with hot syrup; arrange 2-inch strips of licorice to make whiskers. Press second cat over first to give a three-dimensional effect. Cut ears from popcorn wedge scraps and attach to head with hot syrup. Shape licorice rope into a tail and attach to body.
