Leftover Ham……………

Leftover ham should be wrapped tightly and refrigerated as soon as possible. Do not leave the ham at room temperature for more than two hours. If it is not going to be used within four days of cooking, it should be frozen. Uncooked or cooked ham can be stored safely in a refrigerator at 40°F or lower for several days.

About your Slow Cooker………………….

What’s the difference between a crockpot and a slow cooker?
Crock-Pot is the name of a brand that first came on the market in the 1970s. It has a stoneware pot that is surrounded by a heating element, whereas a slow cooker is typically a metal pot that sits on top of a heated surface.

Can I leave my slow cooker on low overnight?
Slow cookers are designed to be left to cook for long periods of time, so the truth is that it’s entirely safe to leave your slow cooker on overnight, if you’re out of the house or if you’re at work all day, as long as you follow all the directions and the manufacturer’s instructions.

Frozen Scallops…………..

As with many kinds of seafood, high-quality frozen scallops can be a very good choice if you don’t have access to fresh scallops. Frozen scallops should be thawed in the refrigerator overnight.

The freezer time shown is for best quality only – scallops that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely. … The best way is to smell and look at the scallops: signs of bad scallops are a sour smell, dull color and slimy texture; discard any scallops with an off smell or appearance.

When buying ground beef…………

When buying ground beef, look for clear cellophane wrapping and be sure there are no tears in the packaging. Also always be sure to check the expiration date. The meat should be a bright red cherry color with the fat marbling uniformly mixed. If it is brown or gray on the outside, that means it has begun to spoil.

Don’t Use The Wrong Avocados………..

When making Guacamole the best avocados to use for the guacamole are the little Hass varieties. Don’t be tempted to buy the big avocados that come from Florida because it means more guacamole, but those avocados contain more water which doesn’t make for a great guacamole. Enjoy the Guac!

Cabbage buying and storing hints……………

When buying Cabbage look for compact heads that are heavy for their size. Whether red or green, the leaves should be crisp and deeply colored. Check the stem to make sure it has no cracks around its base. Avoid discolored heads with wilted outer leaves.

Cabbage is best stored whole and unrinsed until you’re ready to use it. Cutting into it will cause it to lose vitamin C, which will lead to faster spoilage. To store a head of cabbage, place it in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your fridge. A head of cabbage will last up two months when stored this way.

Jalapenos…………….

So if heat is what you’re after, choose peppers with fine lines, and perhaps slacker skin for more kick. Likewise, look for younger, smooth skinned jalapeños for a tamer bite. And of course, you can always control the heat by choosing to add (or omit) the white pith within the peppers.

 

Avoid ones that are small or curved. Striations: Look for a jalapeno that is smooth without those small white or brown striations. This shows that your pepper is milder, younger, and received plenty of water while it was growing. Location: If you can find peppers grown in the USA, they have a chance of being milder.

 

Health Benefits – Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene — an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. That’s what makes the peppers spicy.
