THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Hobo Creole Dish Has Humble Start Story of Shrimp Stew Said to Have Begun Over Camp Fires This Is the story of & shrimp stew —a sort of Creole dish that Is said to have originated over a camp fire back of the tracks. It seems that a band of Knights of the Road had ered to cook a meal with what- resources the group could muster. An inventory brought to light a can of mushrooms, a can of tomatoes, one of peas, an onion, salt and pepper, n loaf of bread and two cans of shrimps. • One of the hoboes who had a reputation for ingenuity was elected "chef. IJ Using a tin can for the cook- Ing he made a sauce from the peas, tomatoes, chopped onion and seasoning. Then ho added. the shrimp and mushrooms and served the dish with thick slices of bread to soak up the sauce. The result was a dish which the hobo lords acclaimed as a true masterpiece. • • From this humble beginning comes a recipe which can be 1 a Jine emergency dish for modern homemakers. With most of the ingredients on the pantry shelf, it takes only a few minutes to prepare a delightful meal. Instead of a tin can, however, the housewife who duplicates the hobo chef's effort, will want to use a spotless.saucepan of gleaming . porcelain 'enamel. Easy- to-clean and completely non-porous, porcelain enameled utensils . save time and energy in the preparation of everyday meals. Translated into standard measurements, the recipe might go something like this—with special dashes Frozen Foods Nutritive Value Sign of Spring Lost After Year •Many North Mississippi County homemakcrs are asking: How long will frozen food keep? But the real question they want answered, Home Demonstration Agent Gertrude B. Hollman pointed out today, Is: How long will this food keep its high quality?' There's little excuse for keeping food longer than a year, according to the home agent. It may remain edible for a longer period of time, but much of its nutritive value U lost. Long storage has varied effect on different foods — butter and fatty foods may become rancid, the color of peaches may he altered and the texture of asparagus may be changed. Odor, appearance, texture, flavor and nutritive value are Important of seasoning to suit individual tastes.

Stir in shrimp, peas and mushrooms and heat thoroughly. Serve over mounds of hot boiled rice. Makes 5 servings. Rhubarb Stalk And Rosy Pies i •' Bright, colorful jtalla of rhubarb displayed in the grocery store are a ?ure sign of «unny day* »head. And, with visions of delightful, desserts for the family, few women can resist putting a bundle of the pink stalks Into Ihelr market baskets. • A rosy rhubarb pie Is, of course, • sure family favorite. But equally popular will be a delicious cobbler which looks pretty and tastes' wonderful. The cobbler recipe below is old- fashioned enough to plcas« Grandfather. But it has a hint of new flavoring to make it a bit unusual, too. Bake the pudding in a gleaming porcelain enameled pudding from the pan. There probably won't pan and serve at the table right be a bit of the desert lett over, but If there Is, store It in the -baking pan and reheat next day In the In considering length of storage. The temperature generally accepted for storage Is 0 degrees Fahrenheit. When recommendations nre made on lengths of time for storing different foods, they usually Indicate how long the foods will keep at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember, the higher the temperature, the shorter the storage time. Frozen fruits lose vitamins as the storage temperature Is raised. Temperatures above 0 degrees Fahrenheit also shorten the storage time for vegetables. They not only lose vitamins, but color as well. Only when frozen food Is held at 0 degrees Fahrenheit (or lower) will the nutritive values of frozen food be retained, Mrs. Hollman advised.
