I love eating outdoors with family & friends, especially in the summer. However food can spoil easily when it’s warmer. Here are the four words that should be your mantra when eating outdoors.
- Clean-Be sure there are plenty of clean utensils and platters. If you are grilling and eating away from home, find out if there is a source of clean water.
- Separate-To prevent foodborne illness, do not use the same platter, cutting board or utensils for raw and cooked foods. Harmful bacteria present in raw meat and poultry and their juices can contaminate cooked food.
- Cook-All raw meats should be a minimum internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) so keep a food thermometer close by.
- Chill-Keep meat and poultry refrigerated until ready to use. Only take out what will immediately be placed on the grill. Chill any uneaten foods in a cooler and keep it out of direct sunlight
