Cracked corn disaster
    #4037898 - 04/10/05 06:59 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Simmered cc til the 'slime point', perhaps a bit past maybe, or maybe not. Jars half full, pressure cooked at 15psi for 70min. Result was a solid gooey chunck that couldn't be shook apart. Could it have been cooked too long? Not rinsed good enough? Is the 50lb bag of corn just ... ahem ... for the birds?

Slime point? Who told you to do this?

Cracked corn sux IMO, why not just use WBS?

If you must use corn, use popcorn and rinse it very well before boiling to get the loose starch off. In my opinion, corn is about the worst possible choice for spawn.

I don't understand how cracked corn would even hold water very well, because it's cracked and has no sturdy outer shell like popcorn.

Not surprised it turned to mush, just do yourself a favor and grab WBS it's right next to cracked corn at the hardware store!

You gotta pressure cook popcorn for an hour or more...rinse it really good and spread it out on newspaper till its a bit dry
The pressure cooking hydrates the corn

Not rinsed well enough.
The freed carbohydrates (the slime) cooked.
