IDNESDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1945, THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. If your waffle iron's temperature Indicator no longer works, test the correct baking temperature by placing a drop of water on the iron. If the drop boils rapidly, the iron's hot enough to start baking. On the other hand, if the drop boils to the point that it evaporates rapidly, the iron's too hot.

Brazil nuts. Your favorite and my favorite—nearly all the nuts are back for the holiday season. So who says nuts aren't good for you? Nutritionists point out that nuts supply that energy builder—fat to the meals. With fats still on the rationed list, this sounds like a good chance to have ration-free fat on the menu. Here are a few suggestions for using nut fat in cookery: First for a pie—in the pastry, that is. Pecans ground fine may substitute for half the fat. Just mix, roll and bake it like you would any plain pastry. Chopped in Baking. Chopped nuts give a holiday flavor to biscuits, muffins, waffles or cookies. Usually a fourth to a half cup of chopped nuts to each cup of flour in the recipe gives a good flavor—a good product. And in cake, a fourth cup of nuts per cup of flour is usually plenty in the batter. And if you've tried it before, you probably know that nuts tend to absorb the moisture in a baked product and make the finished product rather dry. To avoid such a baking calamity, when using a large proportion of nuts, I place the nuts first in boiling water for a few minutes. Drain them and add them to the mixture in the usual manner. That way. they'll have enough moisture so- they won't steal it from your batter. To Buy Nuts in Shell. One thing more. To eliminate the guessing game when buying nuts ala shell, here's a table with the approximate "mept" yield from a pound of shells and all: 1 lb. almonds—1 cup. 1 lb. filberts—1 'A cups. 1 lb. peanuts—2 cups. 1 lb. pecans—1V4 cups. 1 lb. English walnuts—Hi cups. 1 lb. blackwalnuts— Vz cup. \:> W. MYERS, M.D. Mice Over Luhman & Sanders Telephones: lice 188-W Residence 188-X mr 1 Wm &r. R. F.
