(above 3,500 ft.), alterations may be required in baking, preparing time, heat and meals. For instance, liquid boils at 2120 F below 2,000 ft. and much more quickly from 3,000 to 10,000 ft. (2080-1940 F.). Food needing boiling (spaghetti, eggs, pudding/pie filling) needs longer to cook. Leavening gases in breads and cakes expand much more at large altitudes. Fungus breads will increase faster-use slightly cooler fluids to slow fermentation; punch straight down two times. Flour would be dryer and more absorbent at altitudes-use somewhat less. Desserts may need a little less cooking powder (1/8 to ? tsp), less sugar (1 to 3 tbsp. per glass) and more liquid (1 to 4 tbsp. per glass). Increase cooking heat slightly, 15 to 250 F. Egg whites- beat and then smooth peaks, perhaps not stiff.
