WBS Emergency
    #4379980 - 07/07/05 03:43 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I soaked a bunch of WBS last night, and was planning on pressure cooking it today. Unfortunately, things came up and I won't be able to pc today. Can I keep these things soaking for another 12-24 hours? From what I've read, 36 hours seems like the max they can be soaked.

If that's the case, can I maybe put these seeds in the freezer until I get a chance to pressure cook them?

Thanks =0)

Why do people jump to the freezer? You dont know what happens if you try and freeze a big thing of water with stuff in it that can turn mushy, when you dont want it to be mushy at all? Water freezes and expands and things burst..you dont freeze things gorged with water if you want to keep its structure.

It will be fine sitting room temp, 75 or so, for up to 48-60 hours, make sure the seed stays fully sumerged though to prevent germination, and stir it around good with a spoon so its all drowning in water, the seeds wont germ that well in that way. The fridge could also stall sprouting if its gonna be more then 48 hours, as could simmering for 10 minutes..but then you may end up with to much water
