Karina’s ‘Egg’cellent Cooking Tip!
Some things are an ‘Egg’cellent idea, however, leaving uncooked egg-based products out of the fridge, is not an ‘Egg’cellent idea at all. In fact, it is one of the worst ideas, when it comes to food safety. Leaving uncooked egg-based products out of the fridge, may cause food borne Salmonella outbreaks and this would not be good.
Although there are many ‘Egg’ceptional tips, when it comes to Egg safety, I will provide you with a select few:
- If your eggs are cracked before you use them, it is safest to chuck them in the bin.
- As soon as you prepare any raw egg-based products, such as Mayonnaise, make sure you place your raw egg-based products straight into your refrigerator and store it at 5°C or lower. Try and aim for 3°C or lower, in case the refrigerator is opened every now and then.
- Leave your eggs in the carton, when refrigerating.
- Maintain proper hand hygiene practices, when handling all food. Thoroughly clean your hands with an adequate cleanser and running water. Clean and dry your hands thoroughly, before and after handling any eggs or egg-based products.
Be safe in the Kitchen!
