Recipes for old fashioned popcorn balls?

lalajane | Nov 1, 2012 07:42 AM

When I was a kid (late 70s early 80s), the Alter and Rosary Society ladies (my grandmother and various great aunts included) would make popcorn balls and sell them. Everyone is long gone. along with most of their recipes.

I would love to make these again. I have found some recipes that I assume are similar or same (using corn syrup mainly). But I also have questions about flavoring. One flavor was an orange like flavor. How would they have achieved this flavoring? Or was it just the "plain" flavor with food coloring?

Also, if anyone wants to give me their old recipes for popcorn balls I would appreciate those as well!
