Please Stop Cooking Your Avocados

  Please Stop Cooking Your Avocados <p>Avocados should not be cooked! Seriously, people, the madness has got to stop</p>I must admit that even I have fallen into the trap of cooking perfectly good avocados. My friend has an overly abundant avocado tree and sent me home with a basket of them one day. I never grew tired of eating them in guac, on toast or sliced over salads, but considering I had so many, I thought I might experiment. I put some chopped avocado into a batch of enchiladas, excited to see how their creaminess would add to the dish. So imagine my surprise and disappointment when I took my first bite, my tongue immediately recoiling at the slimy green avocado within.

Besides mini chocolate eggs, pre-cooked spiral cut hams—also known as “city hams”—have always been my favorite part of Easter. Since there is no danger of undercooking, we’re free to focus flavor. Heating and serving may seem simple enough, but you can overdo it in the oven. This leads to a dry, chewy pork product, and nobody wants that.

Luckily, there are a few strategies you can execute to make sure your salty hunk of meat is succulent and tender. Swap out the packet of cloying glaze for something homemade, and you have a veritable masterpiece of pork.

Why You Shouldn't Order Eggs on a Plane

  Why You Shouldn't Order Eggs on a Plane Or coffee. Or Diet Coke. Sigh.Drinking coffee on a plane is one of the most-debated questions when it comes to in-flight F&B. But Bobby Laurie, a travel expert and former flight attendant, has a simple two-part answer: Should you drink it? Probably not. But will it poison you? Also unlikely. “The reason why coffee has such stigma attached to it is that the water is loaded into the airplane into a tank that never actually gets emptied when the aircraft is serviced, so some of the water is constantly recycled [every time]," Laurie says. “That’s why it gets that stale taste that bleeds through in the coffee maker.” (The same problem occurs when making tea).

Strategy #1: Embrace bones and fat

City hams come either with or without a bone and, though boneless hams are easier to slice, I’ve found that bone in just tastes better, and the folks at Serious Eats agree. As Kenji points out, this probably has less to do with the bone contributing flavor, and more to do with how boneless hams—which are shaped into creepily smooth and uniform loaves—are processed. Another great reason to get a bony ham? You can use that bone to make soup. Soup is good.

In addition to bones, I like to grab a ham with a bit of visible fat on it. Fat contributes moisture and flavor, so leave any fat cap on there, and score it lightly to help it render while you heat your meat.

Strategy #2: Go low and slow

Though I’ve seen recommended serving temperatures for ham go as high as 140℉, you’d better not let your precious pork baby get anywhere near that hot. A much cooler 120℉ is plenty warm, and your ham is much less likely to dry out at that temperature. You can go as high as 130℉ without it getting dry, but I like to aim low in case someone gets forgetful or distracted. (That someone is me.)

If you’re using your oven, place the ham on a roasting rack—cut side down—set inside a pan. Add 1/2-3/4 of a cup of wine or stock to the pan (you don’t want the ham swimming in liquid) and throw some aromatics in there. A few whole cloves, some star anise, and cinnamon sticks are all good options. Cover the ham with foil and place in a 250-degree oven until it reaches an internal temperature of 100℉. (According to America’s Test Kitchen, this is the best time to apply your glaze, and I agree.) Using a leave-in probe thermometer is the easiest way to monitor this, but if you don’t have one, start checking the temperature with an instant read thermometer after the first 45 minutes. Brush on your glaze, and return the ham to the oven for another half hour or so, uncovered, until it reaches 120℉. If you’re glaze isn’t as shiny as you want it, take a kitchen torch to it to make it crackle.

If you want to break free from the oven, you can also use your slow cooker or (gasp) sous vide. When using a Crockpot or something similar, your glaze can go on right at the beginning, as it’s much less likely to burn. Simply place your ham down in the pot, fanning out the slices, and pour you glaze all over it. Cook on low for 2 1/2-4 hours (depending on your slow cooker), basting it with glaze every hour or so, until your reach 120℉. I’m a big fan of Coca-Cola as a glaze, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Finally, there is my favorite meaty method: sous vide. Simply seal your ham in freezer bag or vacuum bag, and place it in a 120-degree water bath for at least four hours, but—according to the Food Lab—no more than eight. Remove it from the bath, glaze it up, and either hit it with a kitchen torch or pop it under the broiler to get it all caramelized and shiny.

Strategy #3: Upgrade your glaze

I’m sure there are some pre-packaged glazes out there that are fine, but I like to have a little more control over the outcome. There are a million different ways to glaze, but these are some of my favorite combos:

Sorry, the Best Oil to Cook With Is Still Canola .
<p>Canola oil has gotten such a bad rap—here’s why you should ignore the haters and give it a try.</p>Canola is a go-to oil both in my kitchen and in our test kitchens at Cooking Light. We use it for (nearly) everything—to sauté, oven-fry, and even bake. I prefer other oils, like a high-quality olive, walnut, or sesame oil as a finishing oil—aka in a cold application like drizzling on salads or over cooked vegetables. But canola is king when it comes to heat-based applications because of its neutral taste and high smoke point (468F, the temperature at which your oil literally begins to smoke).
