I've cooked octopus in a boiling water (well, more like in own juice to be more precise) like I usually do and than I've realized that I'm too tired and going to eat it tomorrow morning. My question is: what would be the better option - to take it out of water or to keep it there?
I don't now what happens with cooked octopus left in a water for about 8-10 hours.
Just to clarify - it's question about keeping it in water and not about room temp. In my experience nothing happens with a hot pot slowly boiling down till morning - however I am actually going to put it to refrigerator after all.
