The Popcorn seasoning corn was great as a snack without rehydrating.
My cycle time in a large freeze drying using a premier pump was 52 hours 22 minutes without pre-freezing.
About 1 cup of corn and shy of 1⁄2 cup water. Let sit, and then heat in the microwave. You can also rehydrate using about 1⁄4 cup of butter and 1⁄4 cup of water.
*Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray Medium = 6 Cups/Tray Small = 4 Cups/Tray
