Silicone bands are a great alternative to using string and twine as I will show you how to do tomorrow. These little guys are great for tying foods together, holding roasts, and for trussing a chicken. One of the benefits of using them is the fact they are reusable!
HOW TO USE
Basically you just wrap them around food like a rubber band, then cook with them in place. The beauty is they can sustain temperatures up to 600 degrees F and that makes them perfect for oven use.
The only caveat I have found when it comes to using them is that they are difficult to remove sometimes, and you don’t want to cut them.
I found these are starting to gain in popularity and you can find them in cooking stores, and on line pretty easily, and they are rather affordable. So pick up a set and get to playing!
