THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)" COURIER NEWS Food Magic Possible With, a Home Freezer By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor WE WISH we dealt in magic! If we did, we'd say abracadabra and endow every harassed hostess with a home freezer plus a copy of Hazel Meyer's recently published "The Complete Book of Home Freezing" (Lippincott). So easy to entertain if you can prepare food ahead and put it in a freezer! So many ideas in Miss Meyer's book on how to use your freezer and have guests without having hysterics! We hurry to say there's lots besides hostess-help in Miss Meyer's book. It does just what its title implies—gives you complete home freezing information based on the author's own practical experience plus her investigation of sound research. Dr. George Cook of the Long Island Agricultural and Technical Institute was one of the authorities who checked the book. * » » DID YOU KNOW you could package hamburgers by the yard? "Do this," Miss Meyer writes, "by placing a row of equal-sized, flattened patties on a strip of cellophane about 6 by 36 inches, leaving two inches of space between each patty. Cover the strip with another piece of cellophane of the same dimensions and fold the margins in close to the meat. Make a compact package by folding the covered meat patties back over each other accordion style. Put this cellophane package in a polyethlene bag. sealing air out. When you want hamburgers for dinner, you can merely cut off as many of the patties as you need with a pair of scissors without disturbing the 'remainder. Pre-shaped hamburgers take less time to defrost than the same amount of ground meat packaged in bulk." « • * WE WERE INTRIGUED by Miss Meyer's book dedication: "To ttje memory of my father, who loved his family's enjoyment of the picture-book meals he so often prepared." So we asked her about one of her father's eye-appealing dishes. She said she would never forget their first sight of his planked steak, with potatoes prepared four different ways — Hashed Brown, Creamed French-fried and Stuffed- baked—gracing each comer of the plank! But now it's two of Hazel Meyer's own recipes we want to give you. Old favorites of .our own, we tried her versions and found them just as delicious as we thought they'd be.
