  8. Dried corn may be cooked in a pressure cooker for 45 minutes at about 15 lb. pressure.
  9. Phil's notes: An Old Smoky Ham soup base may be used in place of the salt pork. Please when dealing with the chilie pods make sure you don't touch your eyes. Wash your hands first and if for some reason you are cutting them, you might need a second washing to get rid of the burn. Note with the Old Smoky Ham base I also used Copes Toasted Dried Corn.
