What the heck does "field capacity" mean? (Cracked Corn Tek)
    #2053541 - 10/29/03 02:12 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

AFOAF is about to re-try the cracked corn method since his first attempt 4 months ago failed miserably, and, well, he still has about 20 kilos of the stuff....

At any rate, in the CC tek, it says to add Verm at "field capacity"... He's searched and searched but can't find what this means.... Can anyone help him out?

Also, in the CC tek it says to simmer the CC for 30-35 mins... but then says your heat should be between medium and high... As far as he knew, simmering was at really low temps no?

Just wanted to clarify these few things before he tries his luck again....

I am not sure what the actual definition is (search for field capacity, posted by the user name Anno, I know he has explained it in the past and seems very knowledgable) But from what I understand, it is to the point where it cannot hold any more water. So soak it in a bowl for 5 min, then strain for 5 min letting all the extra water drip out (wait for it to stop dripping). Then it is where it should be.
hope it helps,
puggy
