7 Potluck Safety Tips by Marshie Morgan
3 May 2021 21:00:00 Marshie
Summer time brings together friends and family for potlucks, picnics and old fashion BBQ's. Keep these seven potluck safety tips in mind while enjoying time with your loved ones.
- Don't reuse marinades from raw meats. If you need to baste while cooking, set aside some marinade ahead of time to prevent cross-contamination.
- Use thermometers to ensure dishes are fulled cooked and kept at the correct temperatures.
- Remember the danger zone 41° to 135° is there to keep foods at the proper temperature. Cold foods should be cold at 41° or below and hot foods 135° or above. Some simple ways to keep food cold is to place on top of a bowl or shallow baking pan of ice. Another cleaver way to keep all those yummie foods cold is to fill up a clean kiddie pool with ice and place the food in the ice.
- Hot foods need to stay warm by using chaffing dishes, serving right off the grill or using a slow cooker.
- Cream cheese and whipped cream desserts will melt in warm temperatures and are not good choices for pot lucks unless kept in the fridge until serving time.
- Discard all food that has been time-tempertaure abused. Hot food held without temperature control for four hours or longer must be thrown out.
- Cold food when it reaches 70° or higher must be thrown out immediately.
Keep the party going by following the above tips on how to keep food safe.
