My Wife Has Started Sous Vide Cooking


We just use one of our large pots and this Anova Heater/Circulator

I don’t know much about this cooking method yet. It uses heated water to cook food at a constant, relatively low temperature.

Traditionally, the food is sealed in a vacuum bag. My wife has done that but lately has just been using plastic bags and squeezing most of the air out manually.

It does a very good job with chicken. If you over-cook chicken, it gets tough. That rarely happens with the sous vide method.

Now I’m worried about chemical poisoning from the plastic bags.
