b'Temperature ControlHow to keep foods coldTwo-Phase Cooling (Time and temperature monitored)For foods that cant be sliced up or spread out, such as soups, sauces or gravies, you can employ the two-phase method. Its important to keep a careful eye on the time and to check the temperature of your food often in this method. During the first phase, the temperature needs to come down to 70 F within two hours. Once its reached 70 F, you have an additional four hours to cool it all the way down to 41 F. The entire process cant take more than six hours. One way to accomplish this is to use the ice bath method.Step 1Put the stopper in the sink drain, and put the pot of hot food into the empty sink.Step 2Fill the sink with ice thats at least as high as the level of the food in the pot, then add cold water to the ice sur- rounding the pot.62'
