Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For accurate cooking times and proper doneness, cut all meats and vegetables into the sizes specified in the recipe.
  • tip 2
    Corn relish is a spicy mixture of corn, seasonings and vinegar. Look for it near the other condiments at your supermarket or in the deli. Caribbean jerk seasoning, sometimes called Jamaican jerk seasoning, is a blend of many spices that may include chilies, thyme, garlic, cinnamon and ginger.
