How To Use Your Heylo Bag.
WHAT IS IT:
The HEYLO BAG is a heat retention cooking aid. It works as a slow cooker that needs minimal initial cooking time. It is small portable, lightweight and washable. Because of its size it is perfect to use for camping, tramping, yachting and motor home use. Keep one at home for everyday use and take your special dish to a pot luck dinner in your HEYLO BAG. It can be used to keep food hot or cold for hours on end.
HOW IT WORKS:
The HEYLO BAG works on the principle of heat retention, insulating the temperature of the pot in the bag allowing the cooking process to continue. When a recipe says cook for 1 ½ hours you can use your HEYLO BAG and cook for 10 minutes, placing the pot in a HEYLO BAG for2 hours where the cooking process will continue. That’s a huge saving of power usage as well as being safe.
HOW DO I USE IT:
Cook your food in the usual way in a pot. This can be rice, stew, a casserole, pasta or even a pudding. Different foods take different times to cook. Rice is cooked for a few minutes and left in the HEYLO BAG for ½ hour. Casseroles generally cook for 10- 15 minutes and then placed in the HEYLO BAG for 2 hours. Tough cuts of meat should be cooked for 15 minutes and placed in the HEYLO BAG for 3 -4 hours. Pasta should be brought to the boil and placed in the HEYLO BAG for just 10 minutes. If left longer it will overcook and spoil. When the pot is removed from the HEYLO BAG the food is hot and ready to eat. See basic cooking times in the Recipe Section.
Cold or frozen food maintain their temperatures in the same way. A HEYLO BAG in the car can save foods being spoiled on the journey home.
