128 Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Susanville IfilOLESALE Food on the Table: Slow cooker Heather Hunsaker With lower temperatures in the air and fall officially upon us, comforting chilies, stews and casseroles are just the thing we think about when meal planning. Many of these comforting fall foods are easy to whip together on a busy day and are made easier using the slow cooker. But have you ever won- dered whether slow cooking is safe? Well wonder no more! This convenient appli- ance is designed to be left on and unattended for long pe- riods of time and is perfectly safe, if used properly. To ensure a safe and tasty meal, follow these slow cook- er safety tips: --Check your temps. Most foods should be cooked to Supermarket IIAI00A!

Use a meat ther- mometer to check [hat the meat has reached its proper temperature before pulling it out of the cooker and con- suming. Also if you have an older model slow cooker use a thermometer to check that the liquid is reaching the proper "simmering" temper- ature of 209 degrees. Remem- ber that the warm setting is not for cooking and food should not be stored or held on this setting for long peri- ods of time; the low setting is best if you are running late or need to push dinner back. --Preheat your cooker. Just as you would "preheat" your oven, the same should be done with the slow cook- er. This prevents the meat from sitting in a cold slow cooker while it heats up. It is also recommended to cook food on "high" for the first hour, to quickly bring food up to the correct tempera- ture. --Use caution with deli- cate food. Seafood should be added during the last hour of cooking to prevent over- cooking and a rubbery tex- ture. Dairy products should be added during the last 30 minutes of cooking to pre- vent curdling. --Follow directions. Like with any appliance, read the owner's manual to ensure you are using the cooker correctly and follow recipe directions. Need a "quick" slow- cooked, kid-friendly pork recipe?
