She recommended llml, In general, moat should never be washed lor even wiped with a damp cloth imlil just before cooking, explain- Ing that usually washing is unnecessary and only waslcs good Juice and flavor.

Before It Is frozen seasoning should be added and the meat formed inlo cooking portions then wrapped tightly in waxed paper to keep It from drying The same rule holds for variety meats like liver, kidneys, and heart, she Ham and other smoked meals If mildly cured, need refrigeration but will keep In (he rcfrl B crntor as long as lira weeks.
