Safe to reuse chicken marinade

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have marinaded some chicken in pineapple juice and want to reuse the juices/spices as a baste. If boil the marinade will it be safe to use as a baste?

I'm planning on firing up the WSM around 1400, any assistance would be helpful. Thanks.

Good Question???

I tried reducing some meat marinade, but the blood turned it brown.

It was probably safe, but looked horrible.

 

How long did you marinade and did you keep it in the fridge?

 

Some resident safety experts will be by to help

It is safe if you boil it.

Va_Con, Todd is correct. The dissolved Chicken proteins in the marinade will discolor it when you boil it...So, for both of you and anybody else interested...It is Perfectly Safe to heat and Sterilize used marinades...To do this without or minimum Murkiness, Heat the marinade slowly over Medium heat. As it hits 150*F the dissolved Proteins will begin to coagulate and float to the top. Continue heating and skimming the Scum that floats up. Bring the Marinade up to a SIMMER but not a Boil. Simmer for 5 or more minutes to Sterilize and/or Reduce to be used as a Baste or Sauce.

 

Todd, bringing your Marinade directly to a Boil Coagulates and Mixes the Proteins before they can be removed. All our Mom's used the above technique to make their Chicken Soup crystal clear and delicious...
