Zucchini Carrots Squash Recipe Technique Discussion
1)Salting the vegetable as soon as possible is important to let the salt penetrate into the vegetable. If you salt near the end of cooking, all the salt will be concentrated on the exterior and it will taste too salty. To get an even distribution of salt, I recommend a Salt Shaker this model has enough perforation to disperse salt evenly.
2)Steaming the carrot ahead of time lets it cook quicker. Carrots are hearty vegetable and takes longer to cook than squash and zucchini.
3)Getting proper browning is a result of the maillard reaction. The sugar will caramelize and produce different flavors at 300 degree Fahrenheit. Without the maillard reaction, the dish will taste bland.
4)If you add garlic during the beginning of cooking it will burn and taste bitter. All you want is the extra flavor that garlic add.
