• 1.

### How do you properly calibrate a thermometer

• A.

Place thermometer in a freezer and check it every 10-15 minutes.

• B.

Fill a glass with ice and cold water, let it sit for 1 minute. Then check the temperature reading. An accurate thermometer should be within a couple of degrees of the freezing point of water, which is 32 degrees (Farenheit).

• C.

Place the thermometer into a cooked turkey breast. The temperature should be around 165 degrees.

• D.

Leave the thermometer outside on a sunny day. The temperature should be the same as the weather report.

B. Fill a glass with ice and cold water, let it sit for 1 minute. Then check the temperature reading. An accurate thermometer should be within a couple of degrees of the freezing point of water, which is 32 degrees (Farenheit).
Explanation
To properly calibrate a thermometer, one should fill a glass with ice and cold water and let it sit for 1 minute. After that, they should check the temperature reading. This is because an accurate thermometer should be within a couple of degrees of the freezing point of water, which is 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

### What is the minimum internal temperature to safely cook - groundbeef?

250 degrees
Explanation
Ground beef should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure safety. This temperature is necessary to kill any harmful bacteria, such as E. coli, that may be present in the meat. Cooking ground beef to a higher temperature, such as 250 degrees Fahrenheit, is not necessary and may result in overcooking and drying out the meat.

### What is the minimum internal temperature to safely cook - chicken?

250 degrees
Explanation
The minimum internal temperature to safely cook chicken is 250 degrees. This temperature ensures that any harmful bacteria present in the chicken are killed, reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses. Cooking chicken to this internal temperature helps to ensure that it is thoroughly cooked and safe to consume.

• 4.

### What is the minimum internal temperature to safely cook - salmon?

250 degrees
Explanation
The minimum internal temperature to safely cook salmon is 250 degrees. This temperature ensures that the salmon is cooked thoroughly, killing any potential bacteria or parasites that may be present. Cooking salmon at a lower temperature may not fully eliminate these risks, making 250 degrees the recommended minimum temperature for safe consumption.

### What is the minimum internal temperature to safely cook a - porkchop?

250 degrees
Explanation
The minimum internal temperature to safely cook a pork chop is 250 degrees. This temperature is necessary to ensure that any harmful bacteria present in the meat are killed, reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses. Cooking the pork chop at this temperature will also ensure that the meat is fully cooked and safe to consume.

### What is the minimum internal temperature to safely cook - turkey?

250 degrees
Explanation
The minimum internal temperature to safely cook a turkey is 250 degrees. This temperature is necessary to ensure that the turkey is fully cooked and free from harmful bacteria such as salmonella. Cooking the turkey at a lower temperature may result in undercooked meat, which can lead to foodborne illnesses. It is important to use a food thermometer to accurately measure the internal temperature of the turkey to ensure it reaches the minimum safe temperature.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What part of the turkey is the best choice for testing the internal temperature?

• A.

The cavity.

• B.

The thickest part of the breast.

• C.

Anywhere on the turkey.

• D.

The fatty part of the thigh.

B. The thickest part of the breast.
Explanation
The thickest part of the breast is the best choice for testing the internal temperature because it is the slowest part of the turkey to cook and therefore the most important to ensure it reaches the proper temperature for safe consumption. The breast is also the largest part of the turkey, so testing the temperature in this area gives a good indication of the overall doneness of the bird.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### At what temperature does water freeze?

32 degrees Farenheit
Explanation
Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit or 0 degrees Celsius. This is the temperature at which water changes from a liquid to a solid state. In the Fahrenheit scale commonly used in the United States, freezing point is marked at 32 degrees, while in the Celsius scale used in most other countries, freezing point is marked at 0 degrees. Both temperature measurements indicate the same point at which water freezes.

### What is the best way to check a chicken breast to see if it is cooked?

• A.

It's legs move freely.

• B.

Insert the thermometer into the thicker side of the product.

• C.

Press the breast with your finger tip. If it feels like rubber, the breast is done.

• D.

Place the thermometer on top fo the breast and get a reading of over 180 degrees Farenheit.

B. Insert the thermometer into the thicker side of the product.
Explanation
The best way to check a chicken breast to see if it is cooked is by inserting a thermometer into the thicker side of the product. This allows for an accurate reading of the internal temperature of the chicken breast, ensuring that it is cooked to the appropriate temperature to be safe to eat.

### What should you do with the thermometer after each use?

• A.

Place it directly into the carrying case.

• B.

Rinse it with cold water.

• C.

Wash it off thouroughly. (with soap????)

• D.

Place it off to the side until its next use.

C. Wash it off thouroughly. (with soap????)
Explanation
After each use, it is important to wash the thermometer off thoroughly with soap. This is necessary to remove any bacteria or germs that may be present on the thermometer. Washing it off with soap helps to ensure proper hygiene and prevent the spread of infections. Simply rinsing it with cold water or placing it off to the side would not be sufficient in maintaining cleanliness and preventing contamination. Therefore, washing it off thoroughly with soap is the correct action to take.
