Writes Mrs. Gertrude Blanche Dean, "At Christmas time there are always those gifts to be given to friends to whom we care to give some special remembrance. A jar of marmalade or very special preserves attractively wrapped solves many of these gifts. You may be interested in the following recipe which I copied from "The House of Exile" by Nora Wain, "given by Kuei-tzu, who is now 96 years of age." "Peel a fresh pineapple and cut it in thick slices, then into wedgas. Remove the lining from the peel of one dozen oranges: Cut the peel into strips. "Boil out the bitterness, and drain. Divide the oranges into sections, taking out all the seeds. Pick up all the ginger-root you can grasp in oone hand four times. Peel the ginger-root and cut .each root into three pieces: Bring it to a 5 minute boil in cold water, then drain. Put the pineapple, the oranges, with the pe?I, and the ginger root into a saucepan, and pour on honey until there is a finger-length more than is needed to cover them. Cook to the consistency of preserves." Uncooked Candy. Mrs. Kobert VanDyne suggests the following kitchen gift: Easily Prepared Holiday Fudge. 4 squares unsweetened chocolate % cup butter 1 egg slightly beaten 1 pound confectioners (4x) sugar % cup sweetened condensed milk 1 teaspoon vanilla % cup nut meats, finely chopped Melt chocolate and butter together. Beat egg; add 4x sugar, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and blend thoroughly. Add chocolate and butter, blend thoroughly. Fold in nutmeats, scrape into buttered pan. Chill. Cut In squares to serve. We Solve 'Em—Culinary Riddles Remember that brown corned beef which furrowed so mnny brows a few weeks ago? Well, Mrs. H. has been doing a little detective work, and here is her letter, and s letter from her old time market man. So I believe we can claim this puzzle solved: Dear Jeanette Beyer: It was most kind of you to search so widely for light on .the subject of "Brown Corned Beef." From what Prof. Hinman -could .discover, it seemed that a brief period OJt pickling might be the answer. I tried this, but the product, though better than the all red, was still not right. Finally we traced the address of my mother's meat man, a wholesaler with a few retail customers in Boston. I inclose a copy of his. statement, which I am sure will interest you. • I have not yet tried Mr. Fellows, formula, bbut feel hopeful. I had no idea of stirring up such a bother when I put the question to you. It is a satisfaction to have secured a solution, I hope you will like our brown corned beef. I must confess that grandmother picked a rather better cut than usually goes into the pickle and that may have contributed to the tenderness. Thank you so much for your interest and effort, Cordially. Mrs. H. Letter from Fellows, Gamage Company, Inc. Boston Dear Mrs. H: Sorry I haven't replied sooner, but the Thanksgiving rush and several other items have kept me busy. In order to h;ve brown hash it is necessary to buy a grey or brown corn beef. This color is given to the meat by soaking it in a brine (salt and water) that is heavy enough to float a potato. Undoubtedly, you are buying a corn beef that has saltpeter in it. This mineral is a preservative and keeps the meat a bright red even after cooking. One week is long enough to soak the meat in brine. Very truly yours, E. J. Fellows. And now for that brown hash. Our friend Helen M. remembered this favorite recipe from her domestic science days in Chicago. It's delicious, she says (and so will you) with hot biscuits and jelly and a fresh crisp salad. Lunch all ready! Browned Corned Beef Hash. 1 cup cooked corned beef 2 cups mashed potatoes H cup boiling water or more 1 tablespoon onion juice 4 tablespoons fat Salt and pepper to taste 1 teaspoon chopped parsley. Put the beef through the food chopper. Add the boiling water ,o make the mixture soft and moist, but not pasty. Mix corn 3eef, potatoes and seasonings to- ether and turn into a hot skillet containing the fat. Spread mixture over the bottom of the skillet. 3 ress down firmly. Cover and cook over low heat very slowly, 't will take about half an hour :o brown the bottom. When ready j to serve, cut through the middle and fold the hash, so that there is a brown side up and a brown side down. Serve immediately. Incidentally, a survey among business, governmental and c:vic leaders throughout the country to determine the most popular American dishes, by the National Restaurant association, disclosed that corned beef and cabbage runs close race with steak as the favorite main dish.

Sauerkraut and What to Do to It. "I've made sauerkraut like you said in the Table Talks, and now what shall I do with it?" asked Cecilia in anxious tones. "Fanny Farmer doesn't seem to say anything about it." Cecilia had some sausage and 1 so she turned the sauerkraut into a baking dish, covered it with 1he sausage and tucked it all in the oven to form the chef d'oeuvre of an oven dinner.
