Hints From Heloise Salt The Culprit In Poor Cooking Heloto By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I see you are concerned along with your readers about serving salads as crisp as served in restaurants. I, as a restaurant owner, feel that the trouble is not with refrigerating the lettuce. It is my opinion that salt wilts lettuce in a very short time and makes it tough. Consequently, salt should not be used on a lettuce salad until immediately before the salad is served. It also surprises me h o w anyone can complain that they cannot soak, boil, or pressure cook dry beans and make them tender. Salt again! Do not add the salt to d r y beans until the beans are already tender, or you may still have "bullets" after hours of cooking. Even strongly salted seasoning-meat will have somewhat the same effect. For additionally unproved texture, of the bean, a small pinch of baking soda will help prevent skin-cracking and consequently mushiness. F. Norman Menke Dear Folks: I have been cooking beans for years. I absolutely couldn't believe this so tried it. We took two identical pans and two separate cups of navy (pea beans) beans and divided the wa ter equally in each pan. We put the beans on burners side by side and cooked them at the same temperature. We added salt to one and cooked the other plain. You should have seen the difference! The beans which we loaded with salt were hard as rocks and a yellow color and later the skins started coming off. The unsalted beans became white and soft sooner and were beautiful. They can be salted after cooking. Next time you cook beans . test this yourself and see. You will never believe it until you do. Heloise Dear Heloise: - . •---. 1 am British, but this is what I have learned from my country. When we see a line ol wretched ants coming through our kitchen door, we take a bit oi white chalk and draw a line on the floor or kitchen bench or wherever the ants are marching through and the good old saying is, "An ant will never cross a chilk line!" This works just beautiflly. We draw a chalk line also around the sugar cannister and cake tin ami the ants do not pass the line, and the chalk can be easily rubbed ofi later. Lee Speirs Dear Heloise: Your precious nylon net has produced a real challenge. It scrubs potatoes, far better than my potato brush. It makes a wonderful soap sav ing bag for those little pieces o soap and also scrubs cleaner as well as being easier to hold onto when taking a shower than an ordinary slippery cake of soap M. Buck Dear Heloise: When cleaning my refrigerator place a King size TV tray be- ide the refrigerator and load the ood onto it from one shelf. Remove the shelf, wash, replace it and reload the food back MI the same shelf. Use this method for each shelf n the refrigerator. This eliminates carrying a few articles at- a-time to a table counter etc. Tiis is especially nice for re- rigerators which have storage in he door.
