If you're short on time, and you tend to work with a lot of frozen ingredients, you may be wondering if the Instant Pot is really for you. The good news is that your Instant Pot can help thaw foods straight from the freezer (please remove containers first) if you know the right procedures.You can put your frozen foods right into the Instant Pot. For cooked foods, you can steam to reheat the dish without drying it out or use the sous vide function (on compatible models). If you need to thaw and then cook a food, the best course of action is to just follow the normal cooking process indicated by your Instant Pot recipe. The food will be fully thawed as the Instant Pot comes up to pressure, and before it begins its cooking cycle. If you plan on cooking a lot of foods in the Pot, you may want to make sure they are frozen in bowls or boxes so they fit into the pot easily, rather than freezing in a flat bag that doesn't really fit into the Pot's dimensions. 600 Simple, Easy and Delicious Instant Pot Recipes Book for Healthy Meals! In this cookbook you will learn: Benefitѕ of Cooking with the Inѕtant Pot; Inѕtant Pot Tipѕ and Trickѕ; 600 simple and delicious recipes.Get Your Copy Today!

Food expert and celebrated food historian Andrew F. Smith recounts in delicious detail the creation of contemporary American cuisine. The diet of the modern American wasn't always as corporate, conglomerated, and corn-rich as it is today, and the style of American cooking, along with the ingredients that compose it, has never been fixed. With a cast of characters including bold inventors, savvy restaurateurs, ruthless advertisers, mad scientists, adventurous entrepreneurs, celebrity chefs, and relentless health nuts, Smith pins down the truly crackerjack history behind the way America eats. Smith's story opens with early America, an agriculturally independent nation where most citizens grew and consumed their own food. Over the next two hundred years, however, Americans would cultivate an entirely different approach to crops and consumption. Advances in food processing, transportation, regulation, nutrition, and science introduced highly complex and mechanized methods of production. The proliferation of cookbooks, cooking shows, and professionally designed kitchens made meals more commercially, politically, and culturally potent. To better understand these trends, Smith delves deeply and humorously into their creation. Ultimately he shows how, by revisiting this history, we can reclaim the independent, locally sustainable roots of American food.
