Ever been left a little stumped by the terms used in recipes? Here we dispel the confusion around ‘boiling’ and ‘simmering’
requires a vigorous bubble used to evaporate liquids, whereas a simmer
implies a moderate bubble to cook. A gentle
simmer is more suited for poaching or lightly cooking meats
, and a more energetic
one best for pastas, noodles, rice and vegetables
