Popping Popcorn from Scratch in Our Apartments for Rent in Lady Lake

Watching a movie in our apartments for rent in Lady Lake can be one of the best ways to enjoy a night or weekend afternoon with a friend or that special someone. But what is a movie without popcorn? To get the full movie theater experience from home, try popping your own popcorn. Unlike at a movie theater, you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg or wait in a long line to get your favorite movie snack.

For a perfect afternoon or evening of popcorn and a movie in one of our apartments for rent in Lady Lake, follow these tips:

  • Visit a local grocery store and buy some popcorn kernels and peanut oil. Popcorn kernels might be hard to find among them many varieties of microwave popcorn available, but popping popcorn the old-fashioned way will be totally worth it.
  • When popping popcorn over the stove, make sure you use a heavy-bottomed pot with a lid. If the pot is not heavy enough, it won’t be able to withstand the force of the popping.
  • Put your heavy-bottomed pot on the stove over medium-high heat and add 3 tablespoons of peanut oil.
  • Add 3 kernels of popcorn into the pot. When one of those kernels pop, add a half-cup of popcorn kernels into the pot and put the cover on the pot.
  • Shake the pot gently over the stove. Continue shaking until it seems like most of the kernels have popped.
  • Turn off the stove and keep shaking the pot. A few more kernels will likely pop. Keep the lid on the pot until you’re all done.
  • If you like, open the lid and drizzle some melted butter or sprinkle some seasoning on your popcorn. After a few short minutes of cooling, pour your popcorn into your favorite bowl, head back to your couch, and enjoy your film with a tasty snack.

This is just one of the many inexpensive and entertaining ways to spend some time at The Quarters Apartment Homes.
