The weather is great! Just perfect for a picnic! Whether in the park, on the beach or even in your own front yard, a fun day in the open outdoors is sure to have lots of one thing – good food!
So as you get ready to pack up the picnic basket, head out and fire up the grill, remember one very important thing: make sure you pack your food with safety in mind. The summer heat can quickly spoil a picnic, so proper handling, storage, cooking and serving is very important. This is why it is absolutely essential that you take extra care when:
Stacking your basket
Preparing your picnic treats
Serving it up for a sunny day out
Good to know:In hot weather of 32 degrees Celsius or more, it’s important to remember the one-hour rule: perishable foods should not be left out of the refrigerator for longer than one hour. Usually foods can stay out for two hours but in hot temperatures you should know that this time is reduced to just one hour.
Handling Picnic Leftovers
Enjoying good food and fun family and friend get-togethers is a wonderful experience! But it is equally important to be environment friendly and not leave any litter or waste behind. This way you and others can enjoy a healthy and clean environment whenever you decide to picnic!
