Have a SAFE and Happy Thanksgiving! (Part Two)

Turkey

 

Last year I wrote a post called Have a SAFE and Happy Thanksgiving!.  This year I wanted to give you a little bit more time to prepare for everything so I'm posting this one early. 

Please plan to have your leftovers back into refrigeration as soon as possible after dinner but at least before the critical two hour mark.  That two hour window starts the time the food is removed from the oven/stove. 

In order to cool the food quicker, in the case that it is still hot when you put it into the refrigerator, separate it into smaller quantities and place in shallow containers allowing it to cool faster.  In the case of soups or hot liquids, you may also use boil-proof plastic bags full of ice to place into the hot liquid to expedite the cooling process.   

You do not want to place hot items directly into the refrigerator because they will dramatically increase the temperature of other items in the refrigerator and place everything in the critical temperature zone.  It can also take hours for your hot food to reach the safe level of refrigeration (Below 38 degrees).

Please read the post I had from last year for additional tips about food preparation.

Have a SAFE and Happy Thanksgiving!

Lucky, Thank you for posting this.  I am so careful when cooking these days and from what I've learned over the years about illnesses from improper handling of food; this is great information for those that aren't aware.

Carole,

With having had 17 years of owning my own restaurant, I've been to many seminars about food safety sanitation and food-borne illnesses and am very happy to share with my fellow "rainers" to help keep them safe.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for the tips Lucky, a person can never be too careful in the preparation, and handling of food, especially the turkey, or any poultry. Always clean the area where it is prepared, and be sure to wash your hands, and utensils to prevent cross contamination. We sure don't want to turn a happy holiday bad.

HAPPY HOLIDAY to all AR
