Sugar Popcorn:
The White House Cookbook, 1886

Make one batch Red (dark pink),
one batch Green and one batch leave plain White.

Pop up large bowlfuls of popcorn and sprinkle lightly with salt.

Combine in a saucepan:
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons water

Bring to a boil and while stirring constantly, let it boil for several

Remove from the heat, add a little food coloring,
stir and immediately drizzle hot syrup over the popcorn
constantly stirring and mixing the whole time till all the popcorn
kernels have been covered and the Red food coloring is evenly distributed.

~You can add nuts to the syrup and stir until coated
and at least partially set-up and separated.

~Let this mixture sit for about five minutes, then put all of it
into another bowl or brown grocery bag while you make the batch
of Green-colored popcorn following the same directions.

When finished, place the green popcorn into the same bag with the red
then add the plain white popcorn into the same bag.

Close the top of the bag and shake to mix up all the colors.

Put the colored popcorn into a clear glass or plastic bowl for total effect.
