Hello,

After the soak you should be able to take a kernal and easily squish it.

Dude just remember to make sure the popcorn is drained very very good before you pack e'm in to jars. I have had to sometimes lay them out on a towel and pat them dry. Popcorn will not do well, if after PCing, you still have water in the bottom of jars.

yeah but, next time let them soak until they are just starting to split open. I'd say if they are split wide open then skip the simmer and put them straight into the jars.

The idea is to end up with kernals that are not fuckin total mush after PCing them. The best results are after Pcing them the popcorn kerrnels are split. Not split wide open with their guts spilled all over the inside of the jar .

That would lead to Failure  :samurai:

I can see you havent ever done any popcorn....You dont even need to soak popcorn ....PC it till you can easily stick a fingernail thru a kernal...Drain it and then dry it with a towel n load jars to go in the PC

Shroom Pyre, after soaking my popcorn is still unsquishable. I then Toss it in the Pressure Cooker for about 45 min to an hour, by then most the kernels have split but not Exploded or anything of the sort. AT that point i rinse thoroughly cause it gets a kind of residue on it and then dry thoroughly in my tub with towels / paper towels. then load into jars and PC for an hour. :-)

The reason for the initial soak is not to give the popcorn any water content. You soak first to germinate endospores in the grain that could be missed by the pressure cooker otherwise.

I then boil for 80 minutes to get my water content right, drain for 10 mins, load into jars, then pressure cook for 70 minutes. I've never had any problem with too much water in my jars.
