Non-Stick WBS?
    #4603746 - 08/31/05 03:06 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

i'm having a problem with a particular variety of WBS. after i pressure cook it i try to shake up the jars but the WBS seems to act mostly like one giant clump. its pretty near impossible to shake the jars without breaking them (and my hand). i was just wondering if there is anything you can add to your wbs mix before pressure cooking that would solve the clumping problem.

sounds like your WBS is too wet!~

that is probably why its clumping together.

Maybe simmer and rinse it first. Gypsum is supposed to help stop sticking.

Does your WBS have "Seed-Kote", if so a simmer and a couple of very good rinses will get rid of it,(it will cause the seed to stick together).
If all the seeds split or pop then they will glue themselves together too sometimes.
I believe some vermaculite added after draining and before loading into jars will help solve your problem. It will also help soak up any excess water if the seed is too wet as Roadkill said.

Take care n be safe...

rinse more, add a pinch of gypsum, find an inflated bald rubber tire to bounce the jars against to save your hand. I ocasionally use the sidewall of the one on my car. should have just got the spare out.
