Lil problem while boiling some popcorn
    #1654458 - 06/22/03 09:38 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)


I'm now following the popcorn tek. After soaking the grain for 24 hours, I boiled em for 1 hour. I wasn't really checking the boil and when I came back an hour later, I realized that most of the water evaporated and only a little was left in the pot.

Now my grain is sitting in a strainer. How can I know if my popcorns are wet enough? I can break the grain with 2 fingers without having to press a lot.

Is that fine?

Nother question. Is it ok to the fill the jars with the popcorn and wait 24 hours before sterilizing em in the PC or it's better to sterilize right now.

The contams could die in the p.c but they may leave behind toxins that could be absorbed by the mushrooms and make you ill. As for the popcorn I usualy put a few in my mouth and chew, if they are easy to bite into them they are read to put in the jars and p.c.

Well, here's what the guy was forced to do. The popcorn was ready to PC but he just didn't have the time to PC em. He filled his jars and put them in the fridge. No more than 24 hours later, they were pressure cooked.

He's pretty sure he won't have any problem. No contamination was visible and they were still smelling fresh and healthy.

that's not really a problem, gives more time to hatch out any endospores so you may end up better off anyway.
