Simmering is a moist heat method of cooking food by immersing it in hot water which is just below its boiling point, but not completely still. Simmering emerged as a variation of boiling by cooking foods at a temperature slightly lower than that of boiling. Simmering point of a liquid is the temperature at which the bubbles have just started to form and the liquid is gently moving. Simmered dishes include stews and gravies.
