Marinating 101:

Marinate in glass, ceramic or plastic. Don't use aluminum, as acids

in the food or marinade can react with the metal.



Marinate in the fridge. The cold temperature helps inhibit the growth

of illness-causing bacteria.



Marinate for 30 minutes. Half an hour gives meat time to absorb

flavor, but won't give it a chance to get tough.



Toss used marinade. Once a marinade has been in contact with uncooked

meat or poultry, which can carry harmful bacteria, discard the used

liquid.



Keep food moist as it cooks. In the oven or on the grill, brush meats

and veggies with fresh marinade to lock in moisture and flavor.



Serve on a clean plate. After cooking, place meat or poultry on a

clean plate. Don't reuse dishes that have held raw meat.



Grilling Tips:

Turn meat with a spatula or tongs, not a fork. A fork can puncture

the meat and cause juices to be lost.



Soak wooden skewers in water for 15 minutes before using. This helps

keep them from scorching on the grill.



Avoid flare-ups by trimming meat of excess fat.
