Don't Store Onions, Potatoes And Garlic Together
Don't Store Onions, Potatoes And Garlic Together
There for some guidelines for home or kitchen storage.   Keep them separated. Avoid storing potatoes, with onions or garlic because, when close together, they produce gases that spoil both. The reason, as the food safety experts point out, you can store the garlic and onions together but never store potatoes and onions in the same bin. They will make each other spoil faster. If possible they should not be stored too close together at all.
<![CDATA[Eid ul Adha Mubarak from Aleena Caterers]]>Fri, 26 Oct 2012 11:00:53 GMThttp://aleenacaterers.com/blog/eid-ul-adha-mubarakPicture
Introduction to Bakra Eid. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran, Chapter 22 Verse 34 : "And to every nation we have appointed acts of devotion (sacrifice) that they may mention the name of Allah on what He has given them of the cattle quadrupeds; and your God is one God, therefore to Him should you submit, and give good news to the humble whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, and those who are patient under that which afflicts them".

The act of sacrificing an animal is regarded as affecting the heart, as it is connected with righteousness, with submission to Allah, with humbleness of the heart, and patience under sufferings. So when one slaughters with the proper accompanying Intention and not for the sole purpose of eating the flesh on this occasion, one is again complying with the laws in the Holy Quran and completes yet another of the pillars of Islam. The animal sacrificed is symbolic of the animal in man (man's nature). So, when he slaughters, he is reminded of the necessity to eliminate that "animal nature" which he has within him. It actually signifies the sacrifice of the sacrificer himself, and becomes the outward symbol of his readiness to lay down his life in the cause of the Supreme Creator of the universe.

This sacrifice by the Muslims throughout the world on this particular occasion, is intended to let Muslim hearts beat in unison with the hundreds of thousands who have gone on Pilgrimage to makka (which is also a pillar of Islam and is compulsory on Muslims who can afford going there). They re-enact, as it were, the beautiful incident of old, where Almighty Allah had commanded Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) to sacrifice his then only son. On finding him obedient and prepared to act on His command, Allah submitted a ram for him to slaughter instead of his beloved son.

Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) confirmed this act, and always covered his head with respect during sacrifice. He would lay the animal down and gently stroke it, then, placing his foot on the body and uttering the words "In the name of Allah, Allah is Great. O Allah! This is a sacrifice from You and is for You" he would speedily severe its throat, allowing the blood to flow readily with the least possible pain to the animal.

The sacrifice is done after the I'd prayer is over . The chosen animal must be free from any apparent physical defect and must be fully grown and healthy. In the case of a goat or sheep, one suffices, but if it a camel or cow, seven may be partners thereto.

Because many poor and beggars in the community cannot afford to sacrifice, this occasion allows for charity, and when the sacrifice is over the meat is divided as is necessary (one third minimum be allotted for distribution to the poor), the meat is delivered to the homes of the poor so that they too can enjoy and participate on this day of festival.

As Islam does not permit wastage, whatever is left over of the meat may be dried, cured or prepared, so long as it is consumed and not wasted. The skin also must be disposed of and the funds used for charity.

Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran, Chapter 22 Verse 37: "Nor their flesh, nor their blood, reaches Allah, but to Him is acceptable observance of duty on your part".

<![CDATA[Aleena Tips & Tricks (kitchen, Cooking, Health etc..)]]>Mon, 30 Jul 2012 07:23:19 GMThttp://aleenacaterers.com/blog/aleena-tips-tricks-kitchen-cooking-health-etcDon't be afraid to experiment. Good cooks are never afraid to deviate from a recipe and add their own flair. Whenever you make a substitution or addition be sure to make a note on the recipe so you remember next time whether you liked the change or not 


With uses as diverse as hair bleaching and classroom science experiments, lemons have been farmed since 300BC.

What is it?
This is a citrus fruit known for its sour taste and ability to add flavour to dishes.

Is it good for me?
Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and are rich in pectin, a type of soluble fibre that helps keep blood cholesterol levels normal.

Buying and storing...
Choose plump, bright lemons that are heavy for their size. Store at room temperature for one week, or in the fridge for up to two weeks.

If you're zesting or grating your lemon, rinse clean under cold water before use. To yield more juice roll it on the bench before cutting and squeezing.

Cooking tips....
• Add lemon slices to a mild tea. 
• Stuff lemon slices under the skin of a whole chicken before roasting.  


Chilli Preparation
Wash Hands & Equipment 

During and after preparing chillis, great care must be taken with hands and any equipment used. The chemical capsaicin, that gives it its heat will remain on hands and equipment for hours afterwards and not only taint other food but when left on the hands can be very painful if the eyes, ears, nose, mouth or body parts are touched. A great tip is to wash your hands with soapy water or alternatively rub your hands with a lemon and some sugar.

Best Cooking Temperature 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, bacteria in food are killed at a temperature of 165°F. Meats cooked in the slow cooker reach an internal temperature of 170° in beef and as high as 190°F in poultry. It is important to follow the recommended cooking times and to keep the cover on your slow cooker during the cooking process. 

Freezing meat. When freezing red meat or poultry, wrap it very tightly or seal it in a plastic bag to prevent air spoilage or freezer burn. Be sure not to pile pieces on top of each other but do pack meat as flat as possible so it freezes quickly, which will ensure its texture is not spoiled. Meat should be completely thawed in the refrigerator before cooking. Never thaw poultry at room temperature or you risk salmonella contamination.
