More High Altitude Tips
Pasta takes longer to cook the higher in altitude you go. Add 15-20% more cooking time.
When grilling, avoid direct heat for too long so foods don’t dry out. Baste meat last 5-10 minutes to add extra moisture.
Baking with Oatmeal
When a recipe calls for oatmeal, always use quick oats. Old fashioned oats tend to dry a baked good out faster as they absorb more liquid.
Eggs in Baking
Adding an extra egg yolk when baking or using extra large eggs will add extra moisture help your baked goods from drying out.
Yeast doughs rise quicker at higher altitudes so the proof time will be significantly less. Watch carefully so dough(s) doesn’t over rise.
