Mom's Caramel Popcorn

I requested that my mom write this recipe up. Here it is:

1 Cube Butter
1/4 c water
1/2 c light karo
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c sugar
1/8 t cream of tarter

Cook to softball stage. (I always just have a cup of ice water by the pan and as soon as it all starts to boil, drop a bit into the water until it forms a soft ball, and then take it off the heat.) Stir in 1/4 t baking soda and then 1/2 t vanilla. Pour over large bowl of popcorn and stir.
