Gcorgt Thurn, Assodit* Editor Make Jelly Knots for Today's Tea Party ;-; ?-W!.. .'^S^ ' • • - ' l^OM : -^r^-tft Mrs. George Thurn Gives Recipes Often Requested at Cooking School Dear Friends in Blythcvillc: As you know, there Isn't room each wrek to answer all of the questions which poured Into me at the Cooking School; but from time to lime, those questions which were uskeil most often which seemed to bother the greatest number of housekeepers, do find their way into my columns. For instance, that old, popular request: "Please tell us how to mafte Chop Sucy." That one comes up every day, and from younp; housekeepers as well as the more experienced. I am giving 'you a recipe here which, according to tourist cook books from China, Is Chop Sucy. Tho Chop Suey we know in this country is not known in China; it is a dish for tourists, and for American- Chinese restaurants. But good just the same. Chop Suej One nnd one half pounds pork, chicken, beef or lamb; one large onion; one stalk celery, twelve good sired mushrooms; two cups bamboo shoots (any large grocer lias these canned); one and one half tensnoons sugar: wo and cue half tnblcspoons soy (ask at any large grocer or if there is a Chinese or Japanese grocer in Tour town, it can be had there); one tablespoon tarragon vinegar; onn cup fine olive or sesame oil. Cut meat Into strips, very thin ones with the scissors; put one half cup of oil in a pan, heat and add the meat. Stir for a minute, then add the vinegar, soy, and sugar and cook five minutes. Chop the other ingredients, nnd place in another pan which contains half a cup of hot oil. Cook until thoroughly heated, and then add the mral. Cook until it boils hard. Combine mixtures, pile on Chinese dishes, and serve. Chinese Rice Chop Suey should be served with rice, and to cook rice the | .Chinese way Is to WRSh It clean, add water, enough to cover one inch above the rice. Let it come to boiling, then turn the heat low, and let the rice simmer until it Ir, cooked dry. Do not remove the lid during the cookine. until end, to see if it is dry. When the water is absorbed, each grain of riee stands apart from the others. Chow Me In While Tm at It T might as well FACTO TORE* Something different for tea! Or for the children's between-menls snacks—ttrere are every i cookery problems of the average household. Why not make these appetizing fried knots, so flavorful nml so capable of variation, depending on the kind of jelly used in them. ; The recipe calls for deep fat to fry them in, also these ingredients; four tablespoons of shortening: two cups sifted flour; two teaspoons baking powa;r; one-half teaspoon salf.'two-tliirds cup milk; sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling; jelly for filling. Silt the flour once, measure, add the baking powder and salt and sift again. Blend In the shortening with two spatulas or a pastry blender; add milk all at once and stir carefully until all the flour is dampened. Then stir vigorously until the mixture forms a soil dough und follows the spoon around the bowl. Turn out immediately on slightly floured board and knead not more than thirty seconds. Roll out to one fourth inch thickness and cut in strips six Inches long and one-half inch wide. Tie in loose knots. Fry in deep, hot fat (375 by your frying thermometer) .turning frequemly until golden brown. Drain on thick layers of paper toweling. Place In each knot a teaspoon of Jelly, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Makes about twenty knots.. 1! different colored jellies are used, the plate ot finished knots is doubly interesting. Some housekeepers sprinkle the jelly with finely grated cocoanut. HUE ME you the Chow Mein recipe for many housekeepers. give too. especially those who serve midnight suppers, like (o give an Oriental party once tn a while. This recipe calls for one pound noodles Craw); one fourth pound mushrooms; one fourth pound bamboo shoot.s; one fourth pound water chestnuts; one eighth cup thinlv sliced conked chicken: one eighth cup thinly sliced cooked ham; two fried eggs; one half cup roasted chestnuts. The _ shoots and cheslnuts are obtainable canned at most large grocery stores. Droo the raw noodles into a pot of boiling water; add a little salt and boil rapidly for five minutes. Drain and let cold water from the faucet run over this. Dry In a warm oven until thoroughly dry. Drop into deep hot fat as you would doughnuts. Take out quickly and drain on thick layers of pnner ton-cling. Saute the mushrooms in a little melted butter, cook the bamboo shools at the same time, and the water chestnuts until all are ! tender. Season with salt, pepper, n\ bean sauce and n little ground ,' ?inger. Remove these from the pan and re-heat the noodles in the 1 same pan. using the fat in which the vegetables cooked. On a hot platter make a layer of the noodles, a layer of the vegetables and a layer of the chicken and ham. Beat the two eggs nnd frv in the same frying pan in the left over butter. Slice the" hard cooked eggs fine, and spread on the chicken and ham. Sprinkle with chopped almonds, nnd a little parsley. Beef Goulash So many Inquiries come in for a good goulash, that I am giving another recipe for it here: Three tablespoons shortening; two onions; one half cup beef slock or bouillon; three table- s|xx>ns chili sauce; two tablespoons tomato catsup; one half teaspoon Worcestershire sauce; onr fourth teaspoon paprika; one nnd one half cups cooked beef; salt and pepper to taste. Melt the shortening in n frying pan. slice the onions very thin into It nnd fry until brown. Pour Into a double boiler, nrld the stock, chill sauce, catsup and Worcestershire .sauce and seasoning. Simmer for ten-minutes, then add the beef cut into cubes. Simmer for five minutes longer. Serve. —MRS. GEORGE THURN. Shadj-roe croquettes are graat luncheon favorites with many smart hostesses and since the season for this delicacy Is so short," it pays to serve It once at least, during the Spring. Shad Roe Croquetices One pair shad roe, washed, and aoiled a few minutes; one cup of thick hot, white sauce; two egg yolks beaten; one tablespoon of lemon Juice; one tablespoon minced parsley; a little cayenne; beaten egg and crumbs for dipping. Mash the par-boiled roe being careful to simply break the form, hut not to mash the eggs. Add other ingredients nnd mix well Shape into small croquettes. Lower in frying basket into deep hot fat. solved; add the sugar and until the mixture thickens; stir add the whipped cream; mix well; then add the berries and pour into the freezing pans of the automatic refrigerator. Freeze without stirring. Pile into tall parfait glasses when firm, and lop each glass with a berry. This salad dressing is simple.but has a piquancy -which the plain French dressing lacks. It is particularly good this time ot year on mixed green salads. One tablespoon vinegar; one tfialf teaspoon mustard; one tea-; spoon Worcestershire sauce; one fourth cup olive oil; one teaspoon paprika; one fourth cup whipped and seasoning. Then beat in the raw egg yolXs. Add oil nnd vinegar, nib through a very fine sieve. It should be smooth and creamy and verv co!d.
