The Secret to Crispy

BIMG_8117

Can you just picture a limp, soggy piece of bacon?  Or damp fried chicken?  After all the time and effort you put into the prep: cutting or breading or soaking?  How devastating!

The secret to crispy has to do with what you’ve probably been using all along.  The paper-towel-oil-absorber.  Caution!

When you take something greasy out of a pot or pan, do place it on the paper towel to soak up excess grease.  Just be certain that it’s only for a few seconds…

If they stay on the paper towel they’ll steam and get soggy, lose their crispness.

The secret is to transfer them off the paper towel lined plate and onto a cooling rack, in under a minute.  Tada! Crispy!
