Simmering

Purpose[edit]

To slowly cook liquid foods, or foods in liquid just below the boiling point.


Equipment[edit]

Medium heavy sauce pan

Technique[edit]

  • Adjust heat so that the liquid emits a few small bubbles

Considerations[edit]

This technique is used in so many contexts it's difficult to pin it down. If you are cooking liquid food (such as a sauce or a stew) that is at risk for sticking, make sure that you stir it frequently and scrape the bottom.
