Handling Meat

All home cooks want to serve meals and snacks that are good and good for their families. We also want to make sure the food we serve is safe -- particularly meat. When handled or cooked improperly, meat can be unhealthy to eat. We have all the information you need on how to handle meat safely. Our handy cooking charts are downloadable, so you can keep them where you cook and always have them at the ready to check cooking times and temperatures for meat, poultry, and vegetables. Buying fresh, safe meat is critical, but it's also important to store your meat safely once you get it home. We guide you through meat storage information, plus advice on how to freeze meat. We also show you how to test meats and fish for doneness. The only no-fail way to cook meat to correct temperatures is by using a meat thermometer. Use our tips on how to get the most out of your meat thermometer. When you're cooking poultry, turn to our charts on how to ensure tasty, good-for-you results, as well as a primer on how to cut a whole chicken.
