- Preheat the oven to 49 degrees C and place the oven rack in the center of the oven.

- Pop the corn and place in a large stainless steel bowl that has been lightly  buttered or sprayed with a non stick cooking spray.

- In a large heavy bottomed saucepan, stir together the sugars, corn syrup, and water. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture boils, cover, and boil the mixture for about one to two minutes.

- Uncover the saucepan and clamp a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan.

- Boil the mixture over medium heat,   stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches the soft ball stage, 116 degrees C. At this point, stir in the butter.

- Continue to cook the caramel, stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches the hard crack stage, 149 degrees C. (Brush down the sides of the pan, with a heatproof pastry brush that has been dipped  in warm water, to remove any sugar crystals that may have formed on the sides of the saucepan.)

- Then remove the saucepan from the heat and carefully stir in the salt and baking soda.

- The caramel will foam up when you add the baking soda. Pour the caramel over the popcorn and toss, with two heatproof spatulas or wooden spoons, to evenly coat the popcorn.

- The caramel corn will be in large clumps so spread the caramel corn onto a large sheet of aluminum foil.

- Then, while the caramel corn is still hot, separate it into bite-size pieces, with two forks or by wearing heatproof gloves. Cool completely and then store in an airtight  container, at room temperature
