One common mistake made by many folks today, is thawing food in the sink. The U.S. Department of Agriculture warm us that when we leave meat out the out layer of the could be in the ‘Danger Zone” between 40′(4C) and 140 F temperature at which
bacteria multiply rapidly. Its recommended that you thaw food in your refrigerator, in a microwave, or under cold water in a package that will not leak.
Another great tip, is Cook thoroughly.
According to the World Health Organization, “proper cooking kills almost all danger- ous microorganisms.” When cooking food, especially soups and stews, make sure that it reaches a temperature of at least 158 de- grees Fahrenheit (70°C).
IMAGINE a product that can be used as medicine, a cleaning agent, a disinfectant, and a beauty treatment. You can eat it, drink its juice, and extract essential oil from it. It comes attractively packaged, is available all over the world, and is inexpensive. You may even have one in your kitchen right now. What is it? The lemon!
Not Just for Flavor
How often do you use lemons? Some put a slice in a cup of tea; others use the zest or a few drops of the juice in cake recipes. Maybe you squeeze them to use the juice for lemonade. Chefs around the world always have lemons on hand for endless uses in cooking. But have you ever used lemon juice as a disinfectant or to help remove a stain?
Actually, some people clean up and disinfect their chopping boards by rubbing them with half a lemon. Instead of using bleach for stains or cleaning the sink, some use a mixture of lemon juice and baking soda. And half a lemon in the refrigerator or dishwasher is said to eliminate bad odors and keep the appliances smelling fresh.
Lemons are a source of citric acid, which is used as a natural preservative and to give a sour taste to food or drink. The lemon’s pith and peel yield pectin, which is used in the food industry as a thickener, emulsifier, and gelling agent. Additionally, there is an oil extracted from the peel that is used in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. The list of uses for lemons could go on and on. Lemons truly are a colorful, flavorful, versatile fruit.
