"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not."
Magical... simply magical. At one point in the book it describes how the circus smells of caramel corn and apple cider. Ever since i read that delicious description I have been craving caramel corn. I am a sucker.So I made some!
- 1 C Brown Sugar
- 1/2 C Corn Syrup
- 1/2 C (1 stick) of butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
So make your popcorn.... mmmm. I love the smell of popcorn, don't you?!
Next... add the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt to a pan.
Stir this constantly until melted.
Bring the mixture to a boil. Do not stir and let it boil for approximately 5 minutes.
While this is boiling away, spread your popcorn out evenly on a cookie sheet.
