THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 1937 BLYTIIEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS N1NEK Ham Baked Cor the Special Occasion trawbcrry Preserves' Won't Keep for Wmler If You Try Them Probably tile meanest person living is she who nils the house with the mouth-watering odor of strawberry preserves In spring and refuses to give anyone in the family more than a lick of the spoon until snow is on the ground. A strawberry preserve on the blscuii In April is, I say. worth two on the toast in January. If you have to' deal with a hard- hendL'ri preserve maker whose am- bllion is centered around producing a certain number of glasses 1 1 om a given amount of bsrrles and who tbiuks of her product in terms of next winter, the only thing (a do Is to plant yourself firmly In her way and reminisce dreamily about muffins and strawberry preserves. biscuits and strawberry preserves, pineapple muffins and strawberry preserves, popovcrs and strawberry preserves, scones and strawberry preserves, and even waffles and strawberry preserves. If this does not move her, then slrong-arm methods are justified, for there is nothing more delicious on a spring day than a nice hot bread with freshly made preserves of the right consistency for melting in the mouth. People have been known to succumb with joy in tile midst of this gustatory pleasure, so precautions should be taken. No teen-age boy should be turned loose upon preserves and hot bread u-ithout the maternal eye upon him. Girls are apt to forget their caloric intake under such cir. cumsUinces and must be counseled to withhold after the first half- dozen. Fathers, however, must be allowed to use their own judgment in the matter, since there will be no stopping them anyhow as long as (he supply holds out. We offer a few foundations for strawberry preserves and two hot breads containing strawberries, which ought, — .to- ring', the culinary bell at am- family .table. ...

The half ham shown above ranks ace high in both appearance and flavor. For the special occasion, the decoration may seem more Important than the baking, perhaps because .he baking is such a simple matter iiow-a-oays. The ham is simply placed fat side up in an open icd in the ham drippings and maraschino cherries, or orange' and grapefruit sections. The flavor oi these fruits enhance that of the cured ham. Baked whole apricots or pears, too. are excellent in this combination. These are placed in the oven with the ham. just long enough before serving that they are heated. These are placed around the ham on the platter, it must be remembered, however, in garnishing any meat dish, that some space will be needed for carving, so choose a platter which is large enough for both ham and garnish without crowding.
