What is Roasting Used for?

Roasting and cooking of meats, as well as corn ears, potatoes, and other vegetables, by exposing them to dry radiant heat generated by an open fire, a reflecting-surface oven, or, in certain situations, hot embers, sand, or stones. The process is similar to that of baking other items.

Roasting food improves the texture and depth of taste of whatever you’re making. It takes advantage of food’s natural sugars to give it a sweeter, more concentrated flavor.
