WHAT IS DEGLAZING?
Deglazing takes place at the end of cooking to dissolve the pan juices and use them to make a particulary tasty accompanying sauce.
It's very easy to do! Simply pour a glass of cold liquid into a cooking dish or frying pan when it's still hot. You can use water, alcohol, cream or fruit juice. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon, then use the resulting juices as a sauce to accompany your dish.
