Two things. I bought Dole Coleslaw & am using it to make an Asian Coleslaw recipe. I’ve always thoroughly rinsed it out of the bag, but then I have to blot it with paper towell cuz it takes forever to “dry”. The bag the coleslaw comes in says “Thoroughly Washed”. Would anyone STILL rinse/wash it or am I being slightly paranoid? Don’t want to give my TG guests food poisoning.
Other question, I bake a lot & never had this happen before (in this extent) of bagged gran. sugar. The brand is C&W, and opened the bag to pour into my container. There were huge chunks of sugar that I had to break apart. Is this normal? Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!
1. I always wash any veggies I get, even if the bag says it has been washed.
2. The bag of sugar you bought must have been stored in a humid environment at some time. It should be fine to use. However, if the clumps are discolored then I wouldn’t used it because something might have been spilled on it and was absorbed into the sugar.
I don’t always rinse cole slaw (maybe I should???). If you do want to rinse it, could you put it through a salad spinner? Some pieces might go through, but I think it’d be easier. I use a small OXO spinner for lettuce (it pumps instead of using a string) and love it. Sugar clumps when it’s exposed to humidity. Just break it apart if you can, it should be fine.
Hi If you have a lettuce spinner that would work or you could do what they did *in the olden days* tie it in a tea towel and put it in the washer on the spin cycle.I’m not kidding it’s true.As for the sugar depends where you live i live in Nova Scotia so the humidity is high,and my sugar gets like that.The salt also,i put rice in my salt shaker so it doesn’t clump.Hope this helps.
