Sous Vide Squash Recipe

Acorn squash is a once in a season treat that, for many, represents fall to a 'T.' It also happens to be a prime candidate for the sous vide tradition.

Although typically baked, acorn squash responds tremendously well to the gentle application of continuous heat. This allows the squash to not only keep its vibrant color, but also allows the cook to control precisely how firm the acorn squash turns out.

Sous Vide Fennel Recipe

Cooking fennel, that wily vegetable oft ignored in grocery stores, is made simple when cooking with sous vide.

Fennel has a distinctive licorice scent to it which can be off-putting for some. When cooked, however, fennel takes on a light, crisp flavor with hints of anise. Fennel can be used in much the same way as celery. Although great cooked, it can also be eaten raw and used in salads. Unfortunately, thanks to fennel’s many layers cooking it evenly can be a challenge. With the precise application of heat through sous vide cooking, however, fennel can be prepared perfectly every time.

Sous Vide Pumpkin Recipe

If you’re planning on making pumpkin pie or pumpkin soup this year consider preparing it with sous vide.

Traditionally pumpkin is roasted at a high temperature prior to being used in soups, pies or the like. As any chef will tell you, high temperatures and uneven heat can lead to both flavor and color loss. Visually a meal is a success when the colors of the raw vegetable are preserved after cooking. Preparing pumpkin via sous vide is a great way to prime it for being used in pies, soups or even just eaten on its own.

How to Sous Vide a Whole Chicken

There's nothing worse than dry chicken. Fortunately, sous vide allows you to cook anything from chicken breasts right up to a whole bird perfectly every time. Make sure to have a probe thermometer on hand before beginning cooking. Alternatively, use a sharp knife to cut into the thorax. If the juice runs clear without any pink your bird is done!
