I finally made the homemade crackerjacks for the ballgame:
using the recipe posted by toodie jane. They were wonderful! Very crackerjack-y in flavor and appearance, but fresh and actually had peanuts in every bite! I used organic popcorn.
Here's a side-by-side comparison with store bought Crackerjacks <tm>. Mine are on the left. Note the dismal lack of peanuts on the right.
