Food Safety Tips For This Holiday

Food is so important in our lives,we will not survive with out it but it could get us sick or worst kill us if we do not do the preparation right...We do not wanna get our family or ourselves get sick because of a dirty food or something,right? that is why I want to share these tips that we need to remember to food safety especially for this coming holiday where food has a really big role on celebrating it...Clean,Chill,Separate and Cook so that the foods served at holiday events are safe and wholesome...

Clean
: In the holiday rush, don't bypass hand washing and washing counter tops before preparing food. Always use clean utensils for preparation and serving.


Chill: Store food at proper temperatures. Perishable food, including party platters, meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, eggs and cooked vegetables cannot be left out above refrigeration temperatures (40 degrees F).Bacteria grow quickly between 40 and 140 degrees F. Don’t store these foods in the garage or on the porch which may not be cold enough. "If the party lasts more than a couple of hours, remove foods from the table and put out fresh foods within two hours.Refrigerate leftovers promptly,"


Separate: Cross-contamination occurs when foods that are eaten raw, such as salads, fruits and vegetables or when cooked foods, become contaminated with bacteria from raw meat, poultry, seafood or their juices. Wash hands, cutting boards, utensils and dishes with hot soapy water if they have been in contact with raw meat, poultry or seafood. "Remember don't mix fresh foods with foods that have been on the buffet table Keep them separate,"


Cook: Using a thermometer is the best way to cook and reheat foods safely and to not over or under cook them.A quick response thermometer is the most versatile tool for checking foods in the oven,the microwave or on top of the stove.

Baking cookies and making eggnog are traditional holiday activities. However, consuming uncooked foods made with raw eggs is a health risk, and this includes cookie dough and eggnog. Resist temptation to lick the beaters or sample the raw cookie dough, and wait until after the cookies have been properly baked. For those who can't resist the taste and texture of raw cookie dough, commercial dough made with pasteurized eggs is an alternative.
