SafeFood© Shout Out for BH&G

My sister sends me an annual subscription to Better Homes and Gardens. It is fun to leaf through the magazine and see how nice homes can look (I am ok with mine falling short) and how tasty some recipes sound.

It was a pleasant surprise last month to see the article about how retail food service safety tips can be used in homes. Author did a great job of explaining about the importance of temperature controls, keeping hands and food contact surfaces clean (and even dousing with a home-made sanitizer of bleach water), and separating raw foods away from cooked foods and clean away from soiled items. Culinary students call it cooking clean. Consumers can do it too!!
