The Basics: Wooden Skewers


Cooking Essentials 

The Technique 

Wooden Skewers

Warmer weather naturally entices us to grill outdoors. Kabobs have long been a favorite menu item that may be used in all sorts of ways. When entertaining, kabobs are wonderful to serve for portion control, they are easy to eat & make a colorful presentation. Seasonal produce ranging from bright, bold bell peppers, sweet onions, mushrooms & tomatoes are just some of the delicious combinations that may be thread alongside chicken, beef & pork. During the week, kabobs may be served with rice for a simple dinner or over salad greens for an effortless lunch. It’s important, however, to properly prepare wooden skewers ahead of time when they are to be used over an open flame as they are generally made with bamboo, birch & other similar mediums.

How To Soak Wooden Skewers For Outdoor Grilling

Soaking wooden skewers before cooking helps prevent them from catching fire when grilling outdoors over an open flame. It’s an important step that should not be omitted when preparing beef, chicken, turkey or pork kabobs. Apply this procedure for 4, 6 & 12-inch wooden skewers.

Fill a shallow dish or pan with water. Be certain the skewers rest flat & completely inside the container. Rectangular shapes tend to be best. Add the wooden skewers. Let stand at least 30 minutes. Remove them from the water. The wooden skewers are now ready to be thread with meat & vegetables. Season or marinate according to specific recipe instruction.
