- Liquefying through long boiling 2 answers
Is there a name in English for the process of turning ingredients of a dish into liquid through boiling them long enough?
Usually this happens as cook's errors, but at times it's the desired effect (e.g. you may create an excellent, smooth, creamy sauce by simmering the ingredients for a long time).
Judging by what Google Images show, it seems that "overcooking" usually means burnt or nearing burnt fried/grilled food, which is definitely not the same thing.
