Turkey frying tips

first_imgFollow these safety tipsIf you plan to fry a turkey, Andress recommends these safetysteps:* Use the turkey fryer outdoors a safe distance from buildingsand anything else that can burn.* Never use turkey fryers on wooden decks or inside garages.* Place the fryer on a flat surface to reduce accidentaltipping.* Never leave the fryer unattended. Most units don’t havethermostat controls. If you don’t watch the fryer carefully, theoil will continue to heat until it catches fire.* Never allow children or pets near the fryer while it’s in use.Even after use, never let children or pets near the turkey fryer.The oil inside the cooking pot can remain dangerously hot forhours.* To avoid spillovers, don’t overfill the fryer.* Use well-insulated pot holders or oven mitts when touching thepot or lid handles. If possible, wear safety goggles to protectyour eyes from oil splatter. * Make sure the turkey is completely thawed, and be careful withmarinades. Oil and water don’t mix, and water causes oil to spillover, which could cause a fire or explosion hazard.* Keep an all-purpose fire extinguisher nearby. And never usewater to extinguish a grease fire. If the fire can’t be managedwith an all-purpose fire extinguisher, don’t hesitate to call 911for help.Aside from these safety issues, Andress urges holiday chefs toremember food safety, too. “Make sure all the harmful bacteriahave been killed,” she said.The only way to do this is to measure the temperature of thecooked turkey with a food thermometer in several places.First, heat the oil to 365 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Dependingon the amount of oil, this usually takes between 45 minutes and 1hour. Whole turkeys require approximately 3 minutes per pound to cook.To be sure your bird is safely cooked, the temperature of thewhole turkey must reach 180 degrees in the innermost part of thethigh, Andress said. Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaAttempts to fry the Thanksgiving turkey may have left someholiday cooks with singed eyebrows and bruised pride. But neverfear: With a few tips you can successfully fry a Christmasturkey.”People who fry turkeys say it produces a moister turkey, andit’s quicker,” said Elizabeth Andress, a University of GeorgiaExtension Service food safety specialist.But quicker isn’t necessarily safer. Reports of frying mishapsincrease each holiday season.Frying a turkey can be a risky venture”Among the major risks of frying a turkey are safety issues,”Andress said. Concerns include the stability of the fryers,uninsulated pot handles and lids and the potential for oilspillovers and overheating.A common cause of turkey-fryer accidents is filling the pot toofull of oil, which causes the oil to spill over when the turkeyis placed in the pot. Aside from creating quite a mess, oilspillovers at cooking temperatures can result in severe burns.To find the right amount of oil for your turkey, follow thesetips from the National Turkey Federation.Put the turkey in the fryer basket and then place the basket inthe pot. Add water until it reaches 1 to 2 inches above theturkey. Remove the turkey and note the water level, using a rulerto measure the distance from the top of the pot to the surface ofthe water.Pour out the water and dry the pot thoroughly. Be sure to measurefor oil before you marinate the turkey.last_img read more

Annual winner

first_imgDiamond Frost Euphorbia is a gem of a plant and one of the brightest new stars in the horticulture industry, earning it a spot as the 2010 Georgia Gold Medal annual.Home gardeners will love the non-stop color, versatility and ease of maintenance this plant offers.From spring until fall frost, Diamond Frost Euphorbia produces clouds of dainty white bracts (colored leaves) that elegantly complement other plants in containers or landscape beds. Plants grow 6 to 12 inches tall and 20-plus inches wide. Its sprawling growth cascades over the sides of containers or fills in spaces within landscape beds. It also gives a dramatic solo performance in hanging baskets, engulfing them with spherical mounds of color that look like snowballs in the summer landscape.The true leaves of Diamond Frost Euphorbia are tiny, gray-green and masked by the colorful bracts. They tend to fade into the background and are strictly a supporting actor in the color show.Diamond Frost Euphorbia prefers morning sun, afternoon shade and moist, well-drained soil. It is self-grooming in that the old flowering bracts will wither and drop off and, therefore, don’t have to be removed by hand to maintain a neat appearance. The plant is a member of the poinsettia family and produces a sticky latex-like sap when cut. People with skin allergies may want to wear long sleeves and gloves when working with it. However, the milky sap also makes the plant deer tolerant, an important merit in many residential neighborhoods.Although Diamond Frost Euphorbia is a summer annual, containerized plants can be over-wintered indoors in a bright, sunny location and then taken outside again after the last spring frost.Diamond Frost Euphorbia is a patented plant and can only be propagated for commercial sale by licensed growers. However, home gardeners can propagate the plants from cuttings for use on their own properties. Seed is not available.last_img read more

PenSam adopts MSCI Climate Index for €4.8bn equities portfolio

first_imgDanish labour market pension fund PenSam said it has switched weightings in its passively-managed listed global equities portfolio to take account of climate factors, by adopting the MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI) Climate index for the whole €4.8bn allocation.Torsten Fels, PenSam’s chief executive officer, said: “The MSCI Climate Change Indexes consider both the opportunities and risks associated with the transition to a low carbon economy, enabling PenSam to integrate climate risk considerations in the global equity portfolio.”Announcing the move, index provider MSCI said its climate change Indices re-weighted securities based on MSCI’s low carbon transition score, which kept track of a company’s exposure to low carbon transition risk, carbon emissions and fossil fuel reserves as well as its exposure to opportunities including alternative energy and clean technology.A spokeswoman for the €20bn Danish pension fund confirmed to IPE that it had adopted the index for both listed Danish and foreign equities, adding that the fund had only a minor exposure to Danish equities. PenSam previously used the MSCI ACWI, she said.Alvise Munari, global head of client coverage at MSCI, said: “It is critical that the investment industry leads the transition to a low carbon economy, before climate change becomes a major threat to financial stability.”MSCI was trying to aid this transition, he said, by developing tools that analysed “next-generation data” to support clients’ integration of sustainability into their investment processes.The ACWI Climate Change Index is based on the MSCI ACWI, including large and mid-cap securities across 23 developed and 26 emerging market countries, said MSCI.Last June, French utility company EDF announced that it was adopting the index for its €28.1bn nuclear plant decommissioning fund, and was planning to switch some of its passive investments into indexed funds using the new MSCI indices.last_img read more

EPL: Newcastle dent Man City’s title hopes

first_imgRelatedPosts UEFA Nations League: Sterling saves 10-man England against Iceland COVID-19: Usain Bolt tests positive after partying with Man City star, others Manchester City not perfect against Lyon, Guardiola says Jonjo Shelvey further dented Manchester City’s hopes of retaining their Premier League title as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Newcastle.Jetro Willems cancelled out Raheem Sterling’s 15th goal of the season but Kevin De Bruyne thought he had won it with a fine 82nd-minute strike.But Shelvey curled home a brilliant 87th-minute equaliser which, coupled with Martin Dubravka’s stoppage-time save from Sterling, ensured the game finished level.City, who started the day nine points behind Liverpool, dominated possession throughout but could not turn the pressure into enough goals to atone for their defensive fragility in front of a crowd of 49,937 at St James’ Park.City full-backs Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy played as auxiliary midfielders when they were in possession as the Magpies retreated to form a black-and-white wall.But they were unable to prise their way through and it was the Magpies who mounted the first attack of note when Shelvey picked out Allan Saint-Maximin down the left and he cut inside to scuff a seventh-minute shot straight at goalkeeper Ederson.Fernandinho headed over from a De Bruyne corner, but the home side responded with Shelvey curling a 20th-minute free-kick just wide after Saint-Maximin had been fouled by De Bruyne.However, it was City who took the lead two minutes later when David Silva back-heeled the ball into the path of Sterling after it had ricocheted back to him from Isaac Hayden’s challenge and the England forward blasted home from close range.Newcastle were level within three minutes when Willems – whose only other Newcastle goal came against Liverpool – played a one-two with Miguel Almiron before thumping a low right-foot drive past Ederson. It was the Paraguay international’s first assist since his £21million arrival in January.Dubravka needed two attempts to claim Sterling’s rising 33rd-minute strike and was relieved to see De Bruyne’s stoppage-time effort deflected into his waiting arms as the Magpies made it to the break on level terms.Federico Fernandez’s barnstorming run from his own penalty area sparked a rare Newcastle counter-attack which saw Shelvey send a 54th-minute free-kick just wide after Fernandinho had barged Joelinton to the ground 30 yards out.Javier Manquillo had to produce a last-ditch tackle to deny Gabriel Jesus after De Bruyne and Sterling had picked a path through in the 65th minute, and Dubravka had to turn away a dangerous De Bruyne cross seconds later.The Slovakia international pulled off a fine 68th-minute double save to deny Jesus and De Bruyne and saw substitute Bernardo Silva drag a left-foot shot wide four minutes later with the pressure mounting.However, he was powerless to resist when De Bruyne pounced after Mendy’s cross had been half-cleared, chesting the ball down before firing home off the underside of the crossbar.But there was to be a further twist when, with three minutes remaining, substitute Christian Atsu played a free-kick square to Shelvey, who sent a sumptuous curling effort beyond Ederson’s despairing dive to snatch a point.

Road clash with Washington State is nothing to ignore

first_imgOllie Jung | Daily TrojanI feel like I’ve been writing the same column for the last five weeks. If anyone actually has a bead on this USC team, I’m all ears.It’s crazy: the fifth-ranked Trojans are undefeated through their first four games of the season, meaning their playoff aspirations remain very much alive — and they have beaten so-called “rival” teams in three of those matchups, taking care of business against Stanford, Texas and Cal in consecutive weeks. Yet, it’s hard to shake the feeling that something has been missing so far this fall. USC fans may still be dreaming big for the postseason, but you can bet they’re relieved that the playoffs are months away — if the Trojans even make it there.There is plenty to get excited about when watching this year’s team play. Junior wide receiver Deontay Burnett has established himself as a true top option following the departure of JuJu Smith-Schuster, freshman running back Stephen Carr has brought an unexpected nitro boost to the Trojans’ backfield and sophomore cornerback Jack Jones has three interceptions in his last two games.And how about defensive end Christian Rector? After totaling four tackles across 12 games last season, the redshirt sophomore has gone off for two forced fumbles, one recovery, 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for a loss so far this season. Thanks to numerous emerging threats, the Trojan defense has become a force to be reckoned with, and explosive plays have become a possibility on any snap on offense.Then again, so have turnovers. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold has thrown seven interceptions this year, and though some have not been his fault, the total is third highest in the FBS. Add in a lost fumble from Carr last week, and USC is tied for 97th nationally in ball security with eight total giveaways.Thanks to their ball-hawking defense, the Trojans still own a positive turnover margin (+3), and they rank top 20 in the FBS in both first downs and third-down conversion percentage, meaning they do move the ball on offense. Nevertheless, they also entered the fourth quarter tied against Western Michigan and Cal, and they needed overtime to beat Texas. It seems like the team isn’t struggling offensively as much as it is struggling to make timely plays, especially early in the game. USC was able to scrape by in its opening four games, but continuing the trend will likely prove costly tonight.Matt Karatsu | Daily TrojanFor better or for worse, undefeated No. 16 Washington State will be the litmus test for this Trojans squad. The short week is a real concern for a banged-up roster, and it means the defense might not be fresh enough to bail USC out with turnovers, especially facing the Cougars’ superstar quarterback Luke Falk. Falk is the best signal-caller the Trojans have faced all season by a significant margin, spearheading a Washington State passing attack that ranks fifth in the country.The onus, then, will be on Darnold to prove that he is indeed the best quarterback in the nation. He may have to prevail in an old-fashioned shootout; fortunately, it’s exactly the type of game the gunslinger loves to play. Outperforming Falk and overpowering the Cougars’ defense would undoubtedly be a massive boost to Trojan fans and Darnold alike, and a win tonight may even begin carving an unlikely path back into the Heisman Trophy race.But as has been the case all year, it’s almost impossible to predict how things will play out in Pullman. I can imagine almost anything: an impressive road victory a la the Trojans’ trip to Washington last season, to a shocking blowout loss in a packed, raucous and cold Martin Stadium. Win, and USC continues to survive and advance — optics be damned. Given how unimpressed AP Poll voters have seemed by the Trojans so far this fall, however (USC has dropped one spot from its preseason No. 4 ranking despite remaining perfect), a loss could be disastrous, especially against the team’s highest-ranked opponent of the year.So — and I’ve definitely said this before — this week marks a turning point for head coach Clay Helton and his squad. The Trojans will aim to put all doubts to rest with a road win against a strong opponent, and the Cougars look to keep their season on the rise while killing USC’s. Let’s see which team seizes the moment and establishes its playoff credentials.This isn’t a trap game; it’s a legitimate clash of Pac-12 titans. Brace yourselves.Ollie Jung is a senior studying print and digital jouranlism. He is also the sports editor for the Daily Trojan. His column, Jung Money, runs on Fridays.last_img read more
