Susan Wheeler --------------------------------------------------------------------- (Pres0055) HINTS --------------------------------------------------------------------- (Pres0056) HOUSEHOLD HINTS HOMEMADE HARD SOAP 10 lbs. lukewarm melted grease, 2 cans lye, 2 qts. cold water, 6 tsps. salt, 4 tbsps. sugar, 6 tbsps. Borax, 1 cup cold water, 1/2 cup ammonia, 1/2 cup glycerine (optional). Dissolve lye in cold water being careful not to let it splash. Let it stand until cool. Add fat slowly, stirr- ing constantly. Add other ingredients. Stir until thick, about one hour. Pour into a carton lined with paper. Let stand 24 hours or until hard enough to cut into bars. Let these dry thoroughly. The soap improves with age. I find this isn't very good for the first couple of we- eks, but is very usable at the end of that time. It does get much nicer after standing a longer time. I put about twice the amount of borax in my first batch and thought it was a little better. I have not used the glycerine as it is pretty scarce right now. Helen McNamee Before starting a recipe, read it through carefully, assemble utensils and all ingredients. This will save time. ------------ Flour and granulated sugar are piled lightly into the measuring cup. ------------ Brown sugar is packed down in the measuring cup, because it is so coarse. ------------ When substituting bread flour for cake flour, use two tbsps. less for each cup and sift twice for lightness. --------------------------------------------------------------------- (Pres0057) When substituting corn starch for flour, remember cornstarch has twice the thickening power of flour. -------------- Three tbsps. of cocoa and 2 tsps. fat equal 1 oz. (1 square) chocolate. -------------- An apple placed in a can with brown sugar will keep it moist. -------------- An apple is beneficial in keeping fruit cake moist. -------------- Lemons will keep well if kept in a jar in the refrig- erator. -------------- To make canned peas taste like fresh ones, pour off the liquid, and boil it down with a slice of onion, a few lettuce leaves and 1 tbsp. butter and 1/2 tsp. sugar. -------------- A little cheese or onion will add a new flavor to creamed potatoes. -------------- One tsp. grated onion added to mashed potatoes is especially good when served with steak. -------------- Make that "extra" pie. Roll the pie crust, line tin, and store in refrigerator for later use. -------------- The rule that tops all rules is to serve cold dishes cold and hot dishes hot. Hazel Fletcher -------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- (Pres0058) To cook: Fill a large, deep kettle with water; add salt and bring to rolling boil. Place broccoli in the wat- er with the stalks down, heads at the top. Cook at the boiling point uncovered until the stems are just tender. Then remove from the water immediately. Serve at once in a heated dish. -------------- To prepare: First, let the broccoli stand 15 minutes in a large quantity of cool salted water; then wash thor- oughly under cold running water. Now cut off the tough part of the stem end; finally with a sharp knife split the stalks into fourths--not through the head--to hasten their cooking. Miss Jennie Livingston -------------- Heat 2 tbsps. bacon drippings and 2 tbsps. butter or margarine in a large, heavy skillet; spread 3 cups diced cooked potatoes mixed with 1 tbsp. finely chopped onion in a single layer on the skillet. Cook until a brown crust forms on the bottom, shaking skillet occasionally Do not stir. -------------- Cut the crusted potatoes in half; turn each half with 2 pancake turners or spatulas. About 10 minutes before removing from heat add 1/4 cup cream without stirring; continue cooking until potatoes are brown on the bottom. They will absorb all the cream--will be moist inside, golden brown outside. Jennie Livingston --------------------------------------------------------------------- (Pres0059) There is no Data
