Meat Carving Tips
When carving meat, a damp towel underneath the cutting board helps to secure the board to the counter or tabletop and also catches any meat juices that flow during carving.
How to Check Meat and Poultry Doneness
The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
