RE-HEATING

OVEN METHOD

We recommend that you place the pies on a clean baking tray, crispy tops up. Sprinkle a little drinking water over the top of the pies and place in a pre-heated oven at a medium temperature for 15-20 minutes. The core temperature must reach over 75° c for at least 2 minutes. This should be checked using a thermo probe.

 

MICROWAVE METHOD

Place the pies on a clean non-metallic and ovenproof plate. Heat for approximately 3 minutes on full power. The core temperature of the pies must reach 75°c for at least 2 minutes. This should be checked using a thermo probe.

For best results, whilst the pies are heating, turn the grill on high. When the core temperature has been reached in the microwave, splash a little drinking water over the top of the pies and place under the grill for 1-2 minutes to crisp up the tops.

Please note that re-heating times are approximate as ovens vary and you may need to adjust the cooking times accordingly.

 

RE-HEATING THE LIQUOR

Liquor may be reheated to boiling point in the microwave or on the hob. We recommend heating with a balloon whisk, if it is necessary to thin the liquor, then add a little boiling water, if it loses its taste slightly then add a little salt.

Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the shop on 020 7703 4974.

RE-HEATING STEWED EEL

Stewed Eels may be gently reheated on the hob until thoroughly warmed through.  Gently stir taking care not to break the pieces of fish.
