  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 cup whole unblanched almonds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
