Mom's Easy Caramel Popcorn

It's national popcorn day! I thought this would be a good recipe today.

3 quarts popped corn
3 cups unsalted mixed nuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup karo light or dark corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

In a large shallow roasting pan, combine popcorn and nuts. Place in 250 degree oven, while pre-paring glaze. In a 2 quart saucepan stir sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt. Stir constantly. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Without stirring, boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, baking soda, pour over popcorn mixture. Stir to coat. Bake 1 hour in 250 degree oven. Stirring occasionally. Cool break apart. Store in airtight container. Makes about 4 quarts. Enjoy!
