Mom's Microwaved Caramel Corn

3-5 qts popped corn (unbuttered!)
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c margarine
1/4 c corn syrup
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda

Pop the corn with no salt or butter! Put it in a large brown paper grocery bag and set aside.

In a large microwavable bowl, combine sugar, margarine, corn syrup & salt. Mix well and microwave on high 2 minutes. Whisk, then add baking soda & cook another minute. Whisk.

Pour over corn that is in a brown paper bag.

Butcher-fold the bag so it will stay closed, and put it in microwave. Cook 4 minutes more, turning every minute (1 minute each side of bag); Shake bag well between turns.

After cooking, pour contents out on wax paper to cool, then munch & crunch!
