Combine popcorn and almonds in a large bowl.  Stir together Sweet Soy Sauce and ginger.  Melt butter in a large non-stick saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in sugar and corn syrup.  Bring mixture to a low boil, stirring occasionally.  Heat until candy thermometer reaches 265º.  Remove from heat, stir in baking soda.  Slowly add Sweet Soy Sauce and ginger mixture about 1 tablespoon at a time, and stir until mixture stops bubbling; about 2 minutes.  Pour in a stream over the popcorn tossing until popcorn and nuts are well coated.  Cool slightly.  Butter hands; shape into desired sizes of balls, place on waxed paper.

THE STORY OF SOY SAUCE

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
