  • Staphylococci:
    • Spread through human mucus contact through food sources
  • Preparation:
    • Proper hand washing
    • Washing cutting boards with soap and hot water
  • Storage
    • Store raw meat, poultry in refrigerator so they do not drip or touch other foods
    • Never place cooked food on plates that held raw food
temperature zones
Temperature Zones
  • Danger zone:
    • Between 40-140 degrees F.
    • Keep hot foods hot, and cold foods cold
    • Foods should not be left at danger zone for more than 2 hours
  • Cooking:
    • Cook to proper temperatures
      • Ground meat to 160 degrees
      • Egg yolks and whites cooked until firm
  • Cooling foods:
    • Place food in shallow dishes and refrigerate immediately
  • Reheating foods:
    • Bring sauces, soups, to a boil when reheating; heat other leftovers to 165 degrees
  • Thawing Foods:
    • Refrigerator is the safest way to thaw food

    • ½ cup + ¼ cup - 1/4c + 1/4c + 1/4c
  • Measure 1/8 cup:
    • Use 2 T
  • Avoid _tapping__ or _Packing_ flour into measuring cup
  • Give an example of using the most efficient tool.
    • Using ¼ cup rather than 4 Tbs
