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?

Jack-O'-Lantern and Indian Popcorn Ears


Ingredients:
6 quarts unsalted popped popcorn

Glaze:
2 cups sugar
1 can (6 oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate
3/4 cup cranberry juice
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Small colored candies
Licorice strings
Green gumdrops

Directions:
Keep popcorn hot and crisp in a 300-degree Fahrenheit oven. Combine sugar, orange juice concentrate, cranberry juice, corn syrup, vinegar and salt in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook over medium heat to hardball stage (250 degrees on candy thermometer). Pour glaze in thin stream over popcorn in a large buttered bowl and mix well.

Working quickly with buttered hands, form two-thirds of mixture into basic shape of pumpkin. Shape remainder into ears of corn. To apply finishing touches, heat a little corn syrup, brush on corn ears, press small candies firmly in place to resemble Indian corn; cover with green paper napkin or cellophane to resemble shucks. Make pumpkin's eyes, nose and mouth from licorice strings and apply as above; cut gumdrop to make a stem. Yield: One Jack-O'-Lantern and six ears of corn.
