HIGH ALTITUDE COOKING & BAKING TIPS
You can create amazing baked goods and meals at high altitude!! Certain recipes need slight variations due to elevation, and we are here to help. If you have experienced flat or dry cookies, fallen cakes and sticky or tacky bread when following a recipe meant for sea level, you understand the difference elevation can make.
Higher altitude generally means lower air pressure which can impact how you prepare certain recipes. The elevation also impacts the temperature at which water boils and the moisture content of food. Food items like eggs and pasta will need more time to cook, fried foods will lose moisture more quickly and burn, and soups, stews and sauces may dry out or be too thick.
