A bamboo skewer is actually a slender bamboo pole or piece with a sharp end. Since the bamboo skewer is made of green and environmentally friendly bamboo, and with its relatively slender shape, it is very suitable for skewering food for barbecue production, but we still need to pay attention to some things in the process of using it. The following are three precautions for using bamboo sticks.


Wash before use, do not wash before storage


Be sure to clean the bamboo skewers before use, because they will come into direct contact with the food, especially when used for food preparation. However, when storing bamboo sticks, try not to clean them in advance, because this may cause fungi and other microorganisms to breed on the bamboo sticks, and the carcinogenic substances produced by them may endanger health.


Pay attention to the burrs of the bamboo skewers to prevent scratching the skin


So in the process of using bamboo sticks, a very important issue is to be careful not to be scratched by the bamboo sticks. If the skin is scratched, then you need to pay attention to the wound clean. If the injury time is not very long at present, First go and clean the wound with iodophor hydrogen peroxide. However, if the wound has obvious bleeding from wound, pressure dressing should be done when necessary, together with the injection of tetanus, mainly to prevent infection. And if you scratch your mouth, you don’t need to worry too much. The bactericidal ingredients in saliva are sufficient, so you don’t need to worry as long as the wound is healed.


Of course, good-quality bamboo skewers will not produce burrs. We should pay attention after using this kind of bamboo stick. It is best not to use them twice, as there may be some food residues left over for a long time, which will lead to bacteria.


Note that the bamboo skewers used for barbecue should be handled in time


Bamboo skewers for barbecue generally have 15cm, 20cm, 25cm, 35cm specifications. Due to the direct contact with the fire source, the bamboo skewers are easy to be carbonized or even burned during the barbecue, especially when grilling with charcoal fire. Grease standing on the bamboo skewers may even be ignited. Therefore, it needs to be used after soaking in water, and the burning point will increase after soaking, and it is not easy to be lit.


If you skew uncured meat directly, it is best to soak bamboo skewers in brine. The longer the bamboo skewers need to be soaked for longer.
