How to Pc Popcorn?QUICK
    #1968917 - 10/01/03 10:23 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

How do you Pc popcorn for 45 minutes, instead of the soak and boil? Do I just put popcorn in my pc, fill with water, and PC for 45 minutes? I do not understand how the corn wont block the vent, and blowup my pc. How do I pc grain in my pc? Please help as Its my day off, and I will not have much time to make jars, thats why I did not soak, and boil. Thanks alot, 5 shrooms for the answer

hippie was the one i believe who came up with this but the way my foaf does it is he fills his pc with the popcorn kernels, adds plenty of water, pc for 70 min, drains for about 30 min to an hour, loads jars and pc's again for another 80. No problems yet

I'm not sure if I've understood what your doing...Do you intend to put the corn in the jars _after_ you've PC:d the corn?
Anyway, use oven bags. Put in enough water if your corn is not soaked
( I give no guarantee that this will work as I've always soaked and boiled my corn for about six hours prior to putting it in jars. This is just my suggestion.) and leave some air in the bags so they don't burst when they expand. Now, the bags will float and block the vent, so put something heavy on top of them, like a metal lid from a smaller kettle.
Also, I think 45 min. is not enough for corn, especially if it hasn't been soaked. In your case you have to both give it time to suck up water as it boils AND give the bacteria enough time to die. Do 90 minutes.

Hope this helps. And please tell me if it works. ;-)

Will the popcorn not boil up and block the vent? Im trying to get my popcorn's water content right, without soaking for 24hours, and boiling. Thanks

It's worth taking the time to soak you popcorn for 12 to 24 hrs to open endospores and insure successful pcing.
Simmer the corn in water for 1 hr in open air
drain for 1/2 hr or so
put corn in jars and pc for 70mins
If you folow the direction and do not take short cuts you will be successful.

If you can hold the popcorn down with a screen weighted down with 1/2 pints or glasses you can pull it off. I would not try it otherwise.

Good luck & be careful pal!

my foaf doesnt use anything to hold down the popcorn. Just dupms in pc adds water and lets it go. Never had a blocked vent. He also only does enough popcorn for about 12 jars at a time, never tried anymore
