When water boils at 202 degrees
Yippeee – the camping season has unofficial begun and thousands of us will be heading for the mountains. One frustration many cooks from lower elevation must deal with is the change in the temperature of boiling water. Because the boiling temperatures is lower (202 if you are in Denver) at higher elevations, things take longer to cook. So your pot of pasta for Pasta with Sauteed Asparagus and Walnut will take a minute or two longer to cook. Meat will take longer, too. And you will want to use instant rice and mashed potato rather than deal with the agony lo-on-n-g cooking methods. I did an article called Cooking Above Sea Level the explains more and offers some tips to help make the adjustment.
