comment Should I brine a goose?
thanks for that info . Brining a turkey or a goose was completely foreign to me. It was helpful and I think I have a plan new years.

If your using juices do you adjust the water level?

comment Oven Jerky a Possibility?
I have tried a few different soya sauces and find the best to be China Lilly. Don't add any salt, the sauce leaves it salty enough.

comment Why do some countries prefer UHT milk and cream?
Funny I am not sure what you guys are talking about. We only have pasteurized milk in Canada, that I know of. Unless you are talking about milk in tetra pack style boxes. That stuff is only for camps, somewhere without reliable refrigeration. I'm sure when I tasted it I thought powdered milk was better.

comment How can I ensure food safety if my cooking utensils have touched raw meat?
Ah, you guys talk about bacon all you want, but there ain't no bacon like Canadian bacon.

comment What can I do with frozen eggs?
I was told that it is not necessary to thaw them out, just don't have them on to high of a boil when putting them in.

comment How can I ensure food safety if my cooking utensils have touched raw meat?
I use one utensil to place the meat in its raw form. Then The cleaned utensil will be used for the turning of the meat, yes it is the same one, not cleaned throughout the process. I only use it for the meat. When I am done it is cleaned again. Just on habit I will clean it during the cooking, but more out of habit than because I worried about anything.

comment Substitute fresh garlic instead of garlic powder?
I think the important thing here is to remember you can never add to much garlic.
