Neat meat: Do you wash it?
January 12th, 2007

It’s funny how many of one’s daily actions in the kitchen are governed by force of habit. I was quite happy with my rituals and habits until I stumbled upon a little note in a German food magazine (Essen & Trinken 01/07, p.8) that not only suggested to NOT rinse meat but made it sound like the silliest thing to do so. Hm, I have never questioned that little extra shower I treated my meat in our kitchen with and you’d think it makes sense for hygienic reasons and somehow it seems right, no? Right? Wrong! This is what the article (it’s actually just a small response to a reader’s question) claims anyway. Reading more about the whole issue made one thing super clear – as always there are different sides to the coin.

What do you do?
