Real food pickle! I'm cooking posole (hominy) at the moment and not sure how long to cook. Package suggests two hours, but other recipes say even three or more. Some of the kernels have "popped" but not all. Should I cook until all "pop"? Thanks!!

Terrific!! Delicious and easy to make.
Timetables are merely suggestions, approximations, estimates. They are based on too many variables to be able to state with pinpoint accuracy that something should be cooked for a specific period of time. Two hours on my stove with my idea of medium-high heat at my altitude might turn out raw compared to yours. That's why I love recipes that use the words "about" and "or until" in the same sentence, as in "simmer for about two hours or until all the hominy kernels have popped."
To cook hominy, soak the dried product overnight in ample water. Then simmer, covered, for 3 hours, maybe more, until it is greatly puffed and tender.
now I want to try too!!!
