(Redirected from Par boil)
Parboiling (or leaching) is the partially boiling of food in order to later finish cooking it.
The word is often used when referring to parboiled potatoes, which would be boiled for 10 minutes to soften them before completing the cooking by another method such as roasting or stir-frying. Parboiling can also be used for removing poisonous or foul tasting substances from foodstuffs, such as removing gyromitrin from false morels.
