Popcorn Jar Explosion?
    #4347097 - 06/28/05 04:32 PM (12 years, 27 days ago)

OK, so I was pressure cooking jars last night. I used a highly rated popcorn tek, did everything right I think. I mean, I soaked for 24 hours, in warm water no less. I strained for thirty minutes. But the jars that hove come out of the cooker all have a little water at the bottom and many of the little corns have exploded out of their skin. Like, there is a tear in the yellow and the white is visible. What is wrong here?

All you need now is a little butter. When you pressure cooked what did you use to keep the water out of the jars? Could any water of got in?

nah, I just put the lids on real tight, That is the one differnce I forgot. I used the lids that came with the jars, not the foil over the filter disk. Can I still inject these? Furthermore, it isnt a lot of water, but the water inside just seems like it shouldnt be there.

I would be concerned as there maybe already to much water in the jars. Properly best knock up a fresh batch and not waste your spores.

so let me get this right. you soaked the corn, strained it, and slapped a lid on with no filter and no tin foil??? yeah you fucked up big time.scrap it and move on to another batch. water content has to be perfect. keep at it you'll find the right path.

Thats what I'll do. But I will be livid if this happens again. Please, do you know why the yellow skin on the kernals busted? Are they supposed to do that. I think the extra water may have come out from inside of the kernals.

it is normal for some of the kernels to split, usually not more then 10%.
but, it does sound like too much water.

OK, so now my second try, I am about finished simmering the popcorn. But I am looking at the kernals and most of them already have a small slit in the yellow skin. IS that ok? I have not yet pressure cooked them.

DUde, I let this corn drain for hours. I even spun it in a salad spinner. No puddles before cooking, but now that I PC'd 2 of the jars, there is a little puddle in the bottom of the jar. This time I punched a perfectly round hole in the lid with a dremmle, or however you spell it. Then I stuffed the holes with polyfill, put a double layer of foil on top that I rubberbanded around the neck of the jar. STILL most of the corn is split, and there is a small puddle at the bottom. Not as much as the last jars though. I have wasted 2 days so far and like 8lb. of corn. Can I use these last jars?

give 'um a good shake, if you can see a slimy lookin' residue on the glass, (that's corn starch) and you didn't rinse well enough.
if you don't see that, go for it.
luck
