first_imgBy April ReeseUniversity of GeorgiaWhen you think of holiday food and your freezer, don’t think justof leftovers. Think of “planned-overs,” too.Planning ahead can make good use of your freezer and your time,says Elizabeth Andress, director of the National Center for HomeFood Preservation hosted by the University of Georgia College ofFamily and Consumer Sciences.”There are many advantages of freezing prepared foods,” Andresssaid.Cooking ahead and freezing theprepared foods enables you to: Be safeIf you cook ahead and freeze the prepared foods, though, rememberthat even fully cooked foods can grow bacteria if you don’t carefor them properly after you cook them.”Cool cooked foods quickly for safety and freshness,” Andresssaid. “Keeping foods at room temperature for several hours beforefreezing increases chances of spoilage and foodborne illness.”To cool hot food faster, put it in a pan or sink of ice water.This is especially important, she said, when preparing largeamounts of food. Change the ice water often or run cold wateraround the pan. When the food is cool, package and freeze itimmediately.What’s your bag?A recent NCHFP survey found that nearly everyone (94.4 percent)prefers to freeze foods in plastic freezer bags. You don’t haveto use plastic bags, though. There are many choices.”Packaging materials must be moisture-vapor-resistant, durableand leakproof,” Andress said. “Bags shouldn’t become brittle andcrack at low temperatures. They should be resistant to oils,grease or water. Packaging should protect foods from absorptionof off-flavors or odors. They should be easy to seal, too, andeasy to write on.”Good freezing materials include rigid containers made ofaluminum, glass, plastic or stainless steel. Bags and sheets ofmoisture-vapor-resistant wraps and laminated papers madespecifically for freezing are good choices, too.”Package foods in the amounts you want to use at one time,”Andress said. “Once food is thawed, it spoils more quickly thanfresh foods. Be sure to label each package with contents anddate.”Troublesome foodsSome foods don’t freeze well.”Milk sauces sometimes curdle and separate when frozen,” Andresssaid. “Stirring while reheating helps keep the product smooth.Using waxy rice flour or waxy corn flour as the thickener alsohelps to fix the problem.”Gravy also tends to separate and curdle when thawed, she said.”It’s better to freeze broth and make gravy just before serving,”she said. “Or use waxy rice flour or waxy corn flour as thethickener.”Cooked, creamed vegetables tend to lose flavor fast when frozen.Don’t put them in the freezer unless you’ll use them within threeweeks. Vegetables packed in sauce tend to retain their flavorlonger.Cook your vegetables, cool them quickly and then add sauce.Package them in freezer containers, leaving space to allow forexpansion.Lettuce, other greens, cucumbers, radishes and celery losecrispness and become soggy when you thaw them. Raw potatoes don’tfreeze well, either.Slice the turkeyFreezing whole, cooked turkeys isn’t considered safe.”As with any food, the time needed for freezing to take place inthe center of the item is the critical factor,” Andress said.”Trying to freeze a large mass like a whole cooked and stuffedturkey can keep the center warm enough for the hours it takessome bacteria to multiply to harmful levels.”Slice the turkey off the bone and package it in usable amounts,she said. Freeze stuffing separately, so it freezes quickly, too.One last disappointment: don’t save your holiday chocolatecovered cherries in the freezer.

first_img The agency said ground beef from the company was used at a Virginia Scout camp where E coli recently broke out. Virginia health officials said in an online update today that 25 E coli cases have been confirmed out of about 84 reported illnesses in Scouts who recently attended the camp in Goshen, Va. Eight scouts have been hospitalized. Aug 7 FSIS news releasehttp://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_027_2008_Release/index.asp The contamination was discovered through a joint investigation by the FSIS and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), the FSIS said. In July the USDA announced it would soon begin listing the names of retail stores that receive food products involved in class 1 (high-risk) recalls. The new policy is to take effect this month. “We have 11 culture-confirmed cases of E coli, and 5 of those have a PFGE [pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, or DNA fingerprint] pattern that matches some of the leftover product at the camp, which was produced by S&S Foods,” Metz told CIDRAP News today. She said no cases elsewhere have been linked to S&S Foods products so far. See also: VDH spokeswoman Cheryle Rodriguez said the reason Virginia and the FSIS have mentioned different numbers of confirmed cases (25 versus 11) is that some of the cases have not yet been tied to ground beef. “Those are cases, yes, but we have not confirmed that they’re associated with the ground beef,” she told CIDRAP News. “Right now that’s the main thing we’re looking at, but we look at all possibilities.” S&S Foods of Azusa, Calif., is recalling 30-pound boxes of frozen ground beef because of possible E coli contamination, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a news release. The products were sold to food services and institutions, not retail stores, the FSIS said. Aug 7, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – An Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak at a Boy Scout camp in Virginia has been linked to ground beef from a California company, prompting the firm to recall 153,630 pounds of beef, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported today. Virginia’s Jul 31 news release with latest updatehttp://www.vdh.state.va.us/news/PressReleases/2008/073108ecoli.htm The ground beef products were shipped to distributors in Allentown, Pa., and Milwaukee, the FSIS said. The 30-pound boxes carry the establishment number “EST. 20375” inside the USDA mark of inspection, and the individual packages are labeled “742798 MFST, 100% GROUND BEEF BULK, 80/20, 1LB. BRICK.” “Through our trace-back we confirmed that the camp had some of the S&S food products, and that’s what was used in dinners at the camp on certain days,” leading to the recall, said Emily Metz, an FSIS spokeswoman in Washington, DC. USDA spokeswoman Laura Reiser said the agency will not be releasing a list of establishments that received the meat, as it was not sold in retail stores, according to a Washington Post report published today.last_img read more

first_imgThree London boroughs that currently jointly manage £2.3bn (€2.9bn) in local authority pension assets are to review their resource-sharing arrangement.The London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (H&F), which in May’s local elections went from being run by the Conservative Party to being a Labour Party borough, said a review of all its joint services with two neighbouring councils would look to improve performance.The borough currently jointly administers a number of its services with Westminister and Kensington and Chelsea councils, which have local authority pension schemes (LGPS) worth £880m and £630m, respectively.Hammersmith and Fulham’s own £763m LGPS currently shares a treasury department with the two other councils, with the officers conducting the required due diligence for all asset management and other mandate awards. However, decisions on where each individual fund should invest remains with the local council, although all three have a number of providers in common.The review will be led by Andrew Adonis, a transport secretary under former Labour prime minister Gordon Brown.A spokesman for H&F confirmed that all areas of cooperation would be reviewed, including the tri-borough treasury set-up, but said it was too early to provide details.In a statement on the review, the council said it would examine the potential for widening its model of cooperation beyond the three local authorities.Adonis stressed the need for value-for-money arrangements due to the restricted budgets facing councils.“The tri-borough arrangements are innovative but it is right that, after more than two years of operation, there is an independent review,” he said.“I hope we will be able to compare and contrast with other effective organisations and offer some useful insights and proposed ways forward.”In a report presented at H&F’s most recent pensions committee, the council noted it was happy with the “benefits of resilience and sharing of ideas” since the tri-borough treasury team had been in place since 2012.“It is also leading to more competitive fees from external providers through joint procurement and common mandates where they are appropriate for each fund,” it said.In addition to cooperating on investment management matters, two of the boroughs are undertaking a joint tendering exercise to appoint a new custodian, while all three are advising London Councils on the proposed launch of a London-wide common investment vehicle (CIV) for the capital’s LGPS.A move away from the cooperative approach on pension matters is unlikely despite the review, as the three councils have often been championed as an example of how cooperation can lower costs for the LGPS.Additionally, the Department for Communities and Local Government recently concluded a consultation that looked at greater efficiencies within the LGPS, with one of the suggestions being the launch of a limited number of LGPS-wide CIVs.last_img read more

Eight of his 12 rebounds were offensive, and 10 of his 15 points came on second-chance opportunities.“It’s funny,” SU interim head coach Mike Hopkins said after the game. “When Tyler focuses on rebounding, he seems to score.”And according to advanced statistics from Hoop-Math, Hopkins is spot on. By the numbers, Roberson has been the most effective second-chance scorer in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season. Hoop-Math defines a “putback” as a made shot that is taken within four seconds of grabbing an offensive rebound, and Roberson is at the top of the conference in that category.Below is a list of the players with the most putbacks on all 15 ACC teams, with their field-goal percentage on putbacks at the rim in parentheses. You’ll see that Roberson is not only tied for the most putbacks in the conference, but that he’s also converting at the highest rate around the basket among players with 20.1. Tyler Roberson (Syracuse) — 20 putbacks (83.3 percent)2. Charles Mitchell (Georgia Tech) — 20 putbacks (73.3 percent)3. Zach LeDay (Virginia Tech) — 20 putbacks (50 percent)4. Brice Johnson (North Carolina) — 15 putbacks (100 percent)5. Zach Auguste (Notre Dame) — 15 putbacks (50 percent)6. Abdul-Malik Abu (North Carolina State) — 15 putbacks (46.2 percent)7. Devin Thomas (Wake Forest) — 14 putbacks (57.1 percent)8. Chinanu Onuaku (Louisville) — 13 putbacks (62.5 percent)9. Anthony Gill (Virginia) — 10 putbacks (80 percent)10. Amile Jefferson (Duke) — 10 putbacks (66.7 percent)11. Terance Mann (Florida State) — 10 putbacks (50 percent)12. Jaron Blossomgame (Clemson) — 9 putbacks (33.3 percent)13. Tonye Jekiri (Miami) — 7 putbacks (66.7 percent)14. Rafael Maia (Pittsburgh) — 6 putbacks (60 percent)15. Johncarlos Reyes (Boston College) —5 putbacks (80 percent)AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhy Roberson’s “Putback” numbers are more impressive than Brice Johnson’sIt may be a bit confusing that I am calling Tyler Roberson the most effective second-chance scorer in the ACC while Johnson has a 100 percent conversion rate at the rim. But there are two factors at play here, one based in logic and the other in strategy.First, with 20 putbacks and a 83.3 percent conversion rate around the rim (Roberson hasn’t attempted any putbacks away from the rim), he has accounted for 40 points on putbacks. Johnson has attempted a few putbacks away from the rim, but none of them have come from 3-point territory, so he’s accounted for 30 points on putbacks.Second, Johnson plays with one of the best low-post threats in the country in Kennedy Meeks, which has an effect on his putbacks. Meeks often draws double teams in the post, which can leave Johnson alone on the weak side. This makes a good share of his second-chance opportunities uncontested, while Roberson doesn’t enjoy that luxury as often. That’s not to say that Dajuan Coleman, Tyler Lydon or Syracuse’s drivers haven’t drawn double teams this season, but being paired with a player of Meeks’ caliber only helps Johnson thrive around the rim.Why this matters for SyracuseIt has been well-documented that most of Syracuse’s offense is going to come from its 3-point shooting. According to Kenpom, 38.2 percent of the Orange’s total points have come on 3s this season, which is currently the 23rd highest rate in the country and highest among ACC teams. That makes Roberson’s ability to create scoring opportunities on the offensive glass particularly important, and his ability to convert at a high rate gives SU a valuable offensive complexion for a perimeter-oriented system.
