Pop-Corn Balls


  • 3 large ears of pop-corn (rice is best)
  • 1 cup of molasses
  • 1 cup of light brown or white sugar
  • 1 tablespoonful of vinegar


After popping, shake the corn down in pan so the unpopped corn will settle at the bottom; put the nice white popped in a greased pan. For the candy, take molasses, light brown or white sugar, vinegar. Boil until it will harden in water. Pour on the corn. Stir with a spoon until thoroughly mixed; then mold into balls with the hand.

No flavor should be added to this mixture, as the excellence of this commodity depends entirely upon the united flavor of the corn, salt and the sugar or molasses.
