Julia was doing it wrong.

I wanted to share this article I came across on NPR today. Did you know that rinsing your chicken before you cook it increases the chances that you’ll spread the foodborne pathogens in your kitchen? I didn’t! Yikes!

In fact, I’ve always felt guilty when I forgot to rinse a chicken before I put it in to roast. I’ve just always assumed that rinsing your bird was the safest/correct way to go. Julia Child always recommended it as the first step.

So now you know! I for one, am pretty happy that I don’t have to take this cumbersome step anymore.

Check out the article on NPR’s The Salt.
