   New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 1, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas                                A little care Too often one sees the headlines 17 Sick After Church Home for the Aged Outbreaks of foodbome illness often result from insufficient refrigeration of food Many problems could be avoided if people would follow a few simple rules How can you keep bacterial contamination out of your groups wellintentioned efforts Here are some answers to some group meal questions Q Im in charge of the lasagna supper for the Church Seniors Night A grocer and caterer are donating the food I have 10 helpers Whats the best way to do this safely A Presumably youll be getting the ground beef cheese canned and fresh vegetables Ask your donors to freeze the meat in 10 packets for your volunteers the cheese should just be kept refrigerated Suggest to your cooks that they make the trays of lasagna a day or so before the event and freeze them They can defrost the casseroles in the refrigerator the afternoon before the HeraldZettungp Wednesday October Q 9A dinner and you Can heat them for serving that night Make sure the casseroles are heated so the juice is bubbling through Q group is baking dhicken parts for a1 homeless shelter The shelter cant take the food until late in the day but people drop the prepared chicken on their way to work in the morning Our refrigerator is often too full to hold everything What can I do A This is a common problem Any cooked perishable food should only remain at room temperature two hours one hour in hot weather Q My womens circle is doing a cookbook to raise money for the new daycare center Many of our favorite recipes use raw eggs Howcan we update them Patricia Anderson Rasor A You are right to be concerned The bacteria Salmonella enteritidis can make you sick if you use a contaminated raw egg Generally we advise people now to use a cooked base for ice creams and custards The base should reach 160 degrees and coat a spoon You can substitute commercial pasteurized egg mixes or egg substitutes in recipes where cooking wont work Always keep egg refrigerated and cook eggs until both yolk and white are firm Q Our Neighborhood Watch group throws an annual chili supper We cook the chili the day before and refrigerate it overnight in the aluminum cooking pots What about Alzheimers and aluminum A There is no proof that aluminum cookware contributes to Alzheimers disease but unpleasant taste changes can occur when food is stored in metal cookware Plus there is the real safety problem of slow cooldown when food is refrigerated in overlarge containers Large portions of food should be divided into smaller containers for quick cooling from being bad luck Q What about the raw vegetables for salads and desserts that sit out A Good question Many people who are concerned about raw meat and poultry today forget that everything in the kitchen must be handled properly to avoid foodborne illness While some harmful organisms occasionally show up on produce in this country most of the problems occur when foodborne bacteria from raw meat poultry or fish are unintentionally spread to food served uncooked like salad Theres a simple Wash your hands and utensils in hot soapy water after handling raw meats and wash the cutting board and knife after preparing raw meat and before chopping salad items You might also consider getting a second cutting board just for salads or chopping your salad items first Cooked vegetables too are perishable and should never sit out longer than two hours Most fruit pies can sit at room temperature for several hours Custard cream or meringuetopped desserts however should never be off refrigeration longer than two hours Q I have to roast several turkeys in cooking bags to take to church tomorrow To save time can I partially cook the birds today and refrigerate them overnight in the bags I could finish cooking them and take them to church warm tomorrow A No its never safe to partially cook anything Any bacteria present will just warm up to temperatures where they can start growing They may not be killed by partial cooking Second refrigerating the whole birds especially since the bags would insulate and cause them to take longer to cool down gives bacteria another period in which to grow Completing the cooking the next day might not kill the total bacteria or bacterial poisons then present Many common foodbome bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes at temperatures between 40 degrees and 140 degrees Completely cook the turkeys in the bags Debone them and refrigerate the meat overnight in smaller containers Reheat for serving the following day Patricia Anderson Rasor is an agent with the Comal County Agricultural Extension Service OLLBRECHTS PHARMACY OiriKil Since HIM Delivery 6253211 339 Main Plaza Get it to the church on time 1 Inspect donated food Make sure bulk food supplies are safe when you get them When possible ask suppliers to send you raw meats and poultry already frozen Distribute them to volunteer cooks frozen 2 Keep perishables refrigerated before use Normally perishables are only safe off refrigeration up to two hours After use put unused leftovers in small containers Most perishable leftovers last only a few days 3 Use meat thermometers when you cook Red meat should reach 160 degrees and poultry 180 degrees When you can only eyeball it red meat should be cooked thoroughly poultry juices should run clear and fish should flake to the fork 4 Keep everything as clean as possible Remind helpers to wash their hands in hot soapy water before starting t preparation Hands cutting boards should also be washed between rawmeat and fish preparation and preparing other foods 5 Ask volunteer cooks to freeze food prepared at home before dropping it off at the community kitchen This is especially important if they drop things off a bit early Then defrost casseroles in the microwave just before popping them in the oven 6 Safe serving When replenishing food served family style use mediumsized clean bowls filled with piping hot food Discard any food left in previous bowls Too many people may have had their hands in it or sneezed or coughed over it 7 Carryout meals Meals taken to shutins or taken home by people should be either piping hot or refrigerator cold dinners should be eaten within two hours Refrigeratorcold

heres the latest Because roasted coffee loses freshness with exposure to air and moisture always store in a cool dry place For longer periods freeze up to three months Brew frozen coffee immediately because thawing adds unwanted moisture Few combinations are more satisfying than fresh coffee and good friends Think Bi with Prudential Small Company Value Fund Yob FM On A fcrang Equity 1 yaar Sywin
