Fiddle Faddley Popcorn + Stovetop Popcorn

Happy New Years! I just made a batch of this popcorn for a party at friends tonight, and well I may have to make more by them time we leave. It is SO good. I don't have a popcorn popper and I hate microwave popcorn (always burns), so I did mine on the stove in a big stock pot. {see my video below}
Now, I ended up making double the glaze, it was so hard to coat all that popcorn and nuts before it started to set up, so mine will be extra yummy. I wanted to be sure all the popcorn and nuts got some.

Stovetop Popcorn
Add 2-3 TBL canola oil to a large stock pot, let it get hot over medium heat, add 3/4 C. kernals, add lid to pan and shake to coat the kernals. After a few minutes the kernals will start popping, keep the lid on and when you hear the popping come to a slow (about 3 seconds between pops) take it off the heat. Serve as desired.

Fiddle Faddley Popcorn

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 quarts plain popcorn, popped (20 Cups)

In a medium saucepan combine sugar, syrup, and butter. Bring to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Slowly pour over popped popcorn and nuts . Quickly stir hot syrup mixture into popcorn until evenly covered. Cool and serve.
