I opened up a can of Chicken and Dumplings for my lunch and my wife handed me a pan to heat it up in. OK, I didn't want to eat it cold so I dumped it into a pan, put it on the stove, and turned on the gas. I stuck my finger in it after a short time and said that it was warm enough for me. She said, "No, cook it for awhile longer to kill all bacteria". Of course I had a come-back, I said, "but it had to be hot when it was canned".
Now, this incident got me to wondering, and I did some research on the subject and it turns out that in some cases my wife is right. (Of course, around here, she is always right) It said in some cases, bacteria can be found in canned goods. OK, then I will do as she asks from now on except for my canned Mandarin Oranges. I like them cold and when I buy a can of them, I put them in the refrigerator. I eat them mixed with vanilla yogurt and sometimes also add some cereal to the mix. Anyway, when I fix them to eat them, I love them cold, and I ain't going to heat them up (grin). Now, have a great day, you hear?
