- Popcorn is ever so yummy! all the popcorn that is sold at the Movie Theaters is grown out in a farmer's field on stalks of corn. Stop by UNANGST TREE FARMS to pick up some popcorn for your family movie night!
Use your popcorn for indoor decorations during the fall season. Popcorn needs to dry out for a few weeks before using. Once dry, take corn off cob. Put thin layer of oil in pan followed by a single layer of popcorn. You do NOT submerge popcorn in oil. Put heat on medium with lid on pan. Once it begins to pop, shake pan a few times each minute until popping subsides. We like to melt some butter and add sugar for a kettle corn taste. Get creative with your toppings (Pinterest) and ENJOY!
