Festive Popcorn Treats

How to Make a popcorn-cranberry garland for your Christmas Tree.

      Every boy and girl likes popcorn, and the bigger the boy or girl, the more they like it. So, for the Christmas festival, it can be used in many ways. A writer in a household paper, a clipping from which is in my scrap books, tells us: First, wash and polish some fine red apples; oranges may be used, also, if preferred. Cut off a slice from one end, and scoop out the pulp, leaving the skins whole. Pick out the very nicest and tenderest grains of popped corn and dip in either a thin syrup or melted butter. Fit a soft white wax or parchment paper inside the apple or orange, and fill this with the corn. Replace the top, and cover with a cluster of the corn grains, stuck together with syrup; a few green leaves, natural or artificial, should be added; or, if the oranges are used, use orange leaves. Put one of these filled shells at each plate.
      Another way to use popped corn is to make a caramel syrup, using brown sugar; cook until the caramel point; The syrup should cook two minutes before the corn is added. Have the pre-cooked popcorn broken up, and stir into the caramel, pour out on a greased cookie sheet and cook eight more minutes in an oven. When the mixture is cool enough to handle, make into squares or balls and wrap in waxed paper. They may be packed in "gift" boxes, or otherwise disposed of and given out.
