Make sure that reheated food is thoroughly cooked all the way through. If you’re cooking or reheating meat, cut it open with a clean knife to check it is piping hot all the way through – it should be steaming. www.foodsafe.eu

  1. Hello, well I have just made my 1st recipe from your page. I am my own so I started with a favourite of mine the Bolognese. So it’s “1 for tonight and 3 for the freezer” for me. Mind you it looks like it might be more than 3 for the freezer as the amount in the pot is huge!!! Tastes delicious and not sweet like the shop bought jars.
