Baste

To flavor, glaze, or moisten a food by brushing or spooning on a liquid during cooking. The liquid can be pan drippings, margarine, butter, broth, fruit juice, marinade, glaze, or sauce.

Recipes

  1. Herb Roasted Turkey

    Baste turkey with herb-seasoned stock during roasting for a moist and delicious bird.

  2. Orange Cornish Hens

    A glaze of Dijon-style mustard and orange marmalade is used to baste the Cornish game hens during roasting and to flavor the gravy.

  3. Lime-Honey Glazed Chicken

    The sweet and tangy lime-honey marinade is simmered on the stovetop and then used as a sauce to baste and glaze the chicken. Don't let the chicken marinate any longer than 2 hours; overmarinating in soy sauce and lime juice can make the texture of the meat spongy.
