Safe Food Tips for Marinades

Shop the BHG.com StoreMarinades add a powerful flavor kick to poultry, meats, and fish. If marinades are brushed on during grilling, they also help keep foods moist.

But marinades need some special handling to be safe. Because the mixtures come in contact with raw food, they contain bacteria that may be harmful.

To be safe, brush on marinade only during the first part of grilling so the food cooks at least 5 minutes after the last brushing. This ensures that the surface of the food gets completely cooked.

Also because the leftover marinade may contain bacteria, discard it, or if you want to serve it with cooked food, heat the remaining marinade until very hot and bubbly before serving it.
