Okay, first, 7 QUARTS is 28 cups. That's about 6 bags of microwave popcorn. I halved the recipe and still had too much popcorn for two large baking dishes. I would say you will need three, minimum, for a half-batch, six for a whole batch.
Second, there wasn't enough caramel to really coat the popcorn, even after I tossed it in a big paper bag (watch out for hot caramel on the sides of the bag!) and after it spent an hour in the oven (stirring q15). The only solution would be to make more caramel or less popcorn. YMMV.
Third, a big bag is a great way to get the unpopped kernels to the bottom BEFORE you add the caramel. Shake shake shake and then scoop and transfer the popcorn to another bag. There will still be unpopped kernels so watch out! But there will be fewer.
Lastly, I am a bit skeptical about whether an Amish family would use margarine. I think the poster has taken a liberty or two, but if it makes it affordable then where's the harm?
