'A Deep South Stuff By BARBARA CLENDIXEX Tribune Food Editor You're not a true daughter of the South If you've never baked a sweet potato cobbler. That's the way Mrs. H. D. Kirk, of Orlando, feels about it. And now that we've used her $5 prizewinning recipe, selected this week as topnotch by Florida Recipe contest judges, we're inclined to agree with her. Proceeding obediently by Mrs. Kirk's directions, we lined a baking dish with pastry, wetting the sides of the dish to make the pastry adhere. Then we placed alternate layers of sliced sweet potatoes and firm apples, neither of which had been pre-cooked. Over the potatoes and -apples we sifted a full cup of sugar and a healthy sprinkle of nutmeg, adding a right lavish dotting of butter or margarine. (Guess which we used?) Then over this, somewhat hesitantly, we poured a cup and a half of hot water. Fraught with unhappy possibilities, it seemed, but that's the way the recipe read and we're brave souls in the kitchen. Then we fastened on a conservative top of pastry and consigned the cobbler to 425 degree oven for 10 The Tribune awards three prizes each Friday for the beat recipes submitted Id the Florida Recipe Contest.

"Wonder what all that water's doing," we mumbled to ourselves. "Seems like an awfully casual way to construct a cobbler." An hour later, we slid the cobbler from the oven rack. It was golden brown, crisp topped and mighty handsome. More Important, it spooned up into sauce dishes a richly flavored, old-fashioned sweet, as good to taste as It was to look on. "Knows her business," we conceded about Mrs. Kirk. We should have known that all the time. She won a prize in the Tribune recipe contest before. Here are precise directions for arriving at this Deep South delieht.

(Tribune Photo). Mrs. George Van Deusen, 109 ' S. Brevard Ave., won second prize of $3 this week for a cream of potato 60up recipe that's a budget beauty. So nourishing and delicious that it can replace a meat or fish entree, this cream of potato soup has the added richness of frothily beaten eggs, stirred In.

Do not pour off Blue Cheese Glorifies Fish Dish Fish and potatoes are a happy combination, but usually on the bland side. Here, flaked fish and mashed potatoes are lifted to epicurean heights by the addition of crumbled blue cheese. This cheese and fish bake is a custardy mixture, made richly creamy and smooth with evaporated milk. The mixture remains beautifully moist when baked, yet each serving holds its identity when lifted out of the baking pan. Crispy cracker crumbs and a generous dusting of paprika enhance the eye appeal of this tavory mainstay.

(U.R) The Department of Agriculture after 15 years of research and experimentation has developed a new strain of bur-ley tobacco which it says is almost Immune to wildfire. Wildfire, a virus disease which often wipes out a tobacco crot overnieht. has been especially disastrous to bur- ley growers. The new species, a cross between domestic burley and a wildfire-resistant wild species known as nico-tiana longiflora, is expected to be made available to growers within the next two or three years. Department tobacco specialists say what is more important the new strain has a lower nicotine content than ordinary burley. They say present-day burley contains more nicotine than most smokers like. Burley, grown in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Southeastern Indiana, is used principally in the manufacture of blended cigarettes.
