Quote Of The Day

“Are McDonald’s* hamburgers immune to natural processes like rotting? There’s some evidence that they are, but a truly scientific inquiry into the matter has been lacking — until now. J. Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats tested nine different hamburgers of varying sizes (both homemade and from McDonald’s) to find out. Contrary to popular belief, the non-rotting phenomenon isn’t due to the mysterious chemical composition of the burgers.  ”[T]he burger doesn’t rot because its small size and relatively large surface area help it to lose moisture very fast,” writes Lopez-Alt. “Without moisture, there’s no mold or bacterial growth. Of course, that the meat is pretty much sterile to begin with due to the high cooking temperature helps things along as well. It’s not really surprising. Humans have known about this phenomenon for thousands of years. After all, how do you think beef jerky is made?”” —Freakonomics blog

  • Nice article though I don’t eat out. I use to do it when I was younger, but now in my old age? Can’t stand it.

    I figure that I am just a way better cook.
    In the summer when I have barbeques? Oh!!! ummmmmmmm!!!!, and also in the winter time. Everyone around me is fat, and I’m the only one skinny. ]:)

    Turkey croquettes and it takes me three days to properly make them.
    Don’t get to eat too many of those though; family comes over when they hear that I’m making them, and you can well imagine what happens [Do make 300 croquettes out of a whole turkey].

    Ham croquttes as well, but not as many out of a fresh whole ham [About 150 max].
