Tito 1 rute of ficcilliiK vetch fur a but a lot of others have, depended on the grocery store' to keep them | supplied. This year, though, the .grocer will not have'so' many and many homcinnkcrs will have the job of making their own pickles for the first time. For.the benefit of those homemnk- crs who Imve had no experience (it this new job, Miss Corn I^ee Coleman, county home demonstration agent, has a few suggestions: First, to have good pickles and relishes, the hoaicmakers must have good materials to begin with—good vegetables, spices, and vinegar. Miss Coienmn says slie should give particular attention to the vinegar she buys.' Note the acetic acid content printed on the vinegar bottle label. Under the Federal Foot! and Drue Act, all vinegar must have a strength of at Icnst JO'grains, or 4 per cent ncetlc acid. Good cider vinegar usually averages 50 grains or 5 per cent acetic acid. Vinegar with less than 4 per cent acetic acid is not good for making pickles. Either of the two principal types of vinegar cidcr and white distilled—may be used for pickles, but many home-makers prefer the flavor of the elder vinegar. And here are two good simple recipes: Pickle: Slice 1 quart green cucumbers' {impeded), 1 large onion, 1 large green sweet pepper; add 1-2 cup snlL, cover with venter, and let stand 3 hours, then drain. Mix 1 pint vinegar, 1 cup light brown '(yellow) sugar ,anci 1-2 teaspoon mustard seed, and bring this mixture to boil. Add cucumbers, onion, and pepper. Bring this to boll and can. Dutch Salnd: Cut In small pieces, 1 head cauliflower, 1 quart cucumbers, 1 medium cabbage, 1 bunch celery, 1 quart onions, 3 or 4 red ireppers. Let stand over night In water to cover with 1 cup salt. In morning, cook until tender In same water, drain, add paste, and seal, For paste, cook until thick 1 CUD flour, 5 cups sugar, 2 quarts vinegar, 1 tablespoon tumeric, t-4 mustard seed, 1 tablespoon celery seed.
