Harold McGee, who knows a thing or two, advises us on p. 171 of Keys to good cooking: a guide to making the best of foods and recipes to Peel carrots, even if they look clean. The outer layers can be bitter and carry off flavors (his italics). But this advice may be overly general. If the carrots you get locally aren't objectionably bitter, then trust ...

Everything in your recipe is safe at room temperature. If you are talking about hours (even 24 hours), there is no safety issue. If you are talking about a longer period of time (days?), your likely risks would be mold growth, or rancidity.

The answer probably lies in your question: refrigerated previously opened milk Products that have been made shelf-stable by a heating process will be susceptible to spoilage again once the package is opened. While unopened UHT milk will last for months without refrigeration and ESL milk gets up to three weeks (depending on process and refrigerator ...

Sure. I have done this dozens of times. Beans are durable and super forgiving. They might get a little mushy but that is fine for black beans. For other kinds of food the risk is that the might get overcooked the second time and lose character you want.

I live in the UK and frequently don't peel a lot of my veg, just take off the outside of things like brussel sprouts and cabbages and cut any bad bits off root vegetables etc.

The safety of what you call "leftovers" is exactly the same as the safety of the vegetables they came from (assuming you store them under equal conditions after the vegetable is cut up into leftovers and main part). If you can eat the one, you can eat the other. The whole idea that the leftovers are inedible is also strictly untrue. I had to smirk ...

Simple washing (for carrots, or veg. you might peel) is fine, if you don't want to peel. There is no problem using root vegetables without peeling either. Stocks are typically brought to a simmer. So, you easily mitigate any bacterial concerns. Botulism toxins form in an anaerobic environment. So, you don't really have to worry about using fresh, even ...

Versus literally means "green juice" in French (I know there's a "te" in French, but it's not pronounced). From Wikipedia: Verjus is a highly acidic juice made by pressing unripe grapes, crab-apples or other sour fruit. So versus is sour juice, nothing more, and we should treat it like so in our research for food safety. From StillTasty:...

I've found a couple of sources differentiating red palm from palm kernel oil & quoting smoke points from 150℃/300℉ to 235℃/450℉ depending on how refined it is. One can only imagine if you got a 'straight from the farm' type then it will be unrefined. I'd use it only for low-temperature cooking, don't let it smoke too much. Refs: https://www....

As people have mentioned, canned meats are cooked as part of the canning process, so it’s safe to eat as is... but it’s not always ideal to do so. In many ways, it’s like a chicken hot dog right out of the package. It might be safe to eat, but it’s much better if you cook it. I would recommend slicing it up, and then browning the slices. This helps to ...

Others have explained that it is safe to eat as-is from food safety standpoint. From a taste standpoint cooking may be a way to add flavor. Although recipes requests are off-topic, you might look online at recipes for a product called SPAM. They even have their own website. Notes: I have never eaten Spam or tried any of the recipes. It is definitely not ...

All tinned foods which are not dry (like flour or coffee grounds) have been sufficiently cooked and are safe to eat directly after opening. Once opened, leftover contents should be treated like any perishable food. Of course, some canned foods should be heated before serving, but that's a culinary consideration rather than a safety concern.

As long as the rind is still encasing the cheese, it should be just fine, as Gouda is aged for weeks anyway, and its salt content preserves it.

I just used one Anchor Hocking glass bowl covered with foil, for a shrimp recipe on top of the trivet, and it cracked in half. :-( Big disappointment.
