How am I not dead?
Mixing bowls crossed my mind the other day and thinking back to what Grandma used to use. As soon as she was old enough to help in the kitchen she did and had the responsibility of baking from age 10 onwards.
After getting married for most of her professional life she worked in a hospital cafeteria and was well acquainted with stringent foodsafe requirements. Even at home everything was always immaculate, except for one thing; She never washed her dough mixing bowl. Dairy, eggs, etc all went into dough she made every week. Once the dough was out the bowl. The bowl was allowed to dry and then a quick scrape into the garbage for anything still remaining and back into the storage cupboard it went for the same procedure next week.
After taking the provincial foodsafe course myself (and briefly) working in a commercial environment where anything containing egg was immediately washed up after and sanitized (more-so than for non-dairy, non-egg containing products.)
I know of the potential hazards of raw, unpasturized eggs. I'm just wondering given how germophobic society can be that somehow an unwashed bowl didn't kill everyone.
