Jeanette Beyer, Globe-Gazette food specialist, writes of English vegetables and the methods used in that country for preparing them. Miss Beyer has been living in Oxford for a few months and has made a study of English culinary methods. New ways of preparing carrots, onions, cabbage, artichokes, cauliflower, turnips, green peas, beans, are given. Miss Beyer also describes a typical supper in an English home. VEGETABLES IN OXFORDSHIRE FASHIONS One cannot resist a few regretful thoughts of the beautiful vegetable garden left behind in America. Especially is one's memory touched, to go to the store for a mere handful of new potatoes when one might be finding a basketful in one's own black earth. English asparagus, which tastes so good and costs so much, is a joy one can afford rarely. But by the time this reaches Smart Summer DRESSES!

It creams the butter instead of melting it. America, you should be reveling in garden stuff. May I send you the following from the "Vegetable Cookery Book" of the Oxfordshire Federation of Women's Institutes ? To Boil New Potatoes. New potatoes should be boiled as soon as possible after they are taken from the ground. Place them in a saucepan of boiling water to cover them, a little salt and a sprig of mint. Allow them to cook gently for 15 minutes. Drain off the water and remove the mint. Dry them, add a jiece of butter, and serve with a ittle chopped parsley sprinkled over them--Spelsbury. To Boil Jerusalem Artichokes. Wash the artichokes well and peel thinly, cutting off the nubbly bits :o make them a good shape. Throw :hem into clean salted water into which half a lemon has been squeezed. This helps to keep them a ood color. Place the artichokes into Soiling water and cook until tender (about 20 minutes to half an horu if young). When done, drain well, but ceep the water in which they are joiled to make vegetable stock for soup. Cover them with a white or icllandaise sauce and serve very hot.--Ducklington. Carrots a la Maitre d'Holel. Prepare a bunch of young carrots by cutting off tops and washing well. Do not scrape if very young. Cut them in half lengthways and boil in a little salted water until tender. Drain well, add a little but- :er, some finely chopped parsley, a dust of pepper, a litle powdered su- = and a good squeeze of lemon. Shake the pan over the fire and serve hot.--Headington. Onions With Eggs. 3 chopped onions 2 oz. butter. 2 tbsp. flour 14 pint milk 3* hard boiled eggs Melt the butter in a saucepan, put in the chopped onion, put on the lid and shake well. Do not let it brown. Just cover with water and stew until the onions are tender. Drain the onions and make a sauce with the liquor, the milk and the flour. Cut up the hard boiled eggs in large nieces and add to the onions. Pour the sauce over and heat through. Serve hot. Cabbage With Rice. 1 or 2 young cabbages 1 cup of rice 1 oz. of butter 1 pint stock Seasoning and grated cheese Wash the cabbages and cut into small pieces. Plunge them into .. a saucepan of boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Drain. Wash the rice and place in a saucepan with the stock and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the cabbage and seasoning, and cook all slowly until the cabbage and rice are tender. Stir occasionally, when ready the stock should be absorbed. Add the butter and turn the mixture into a greased fireproof dish. Sprinkle grated cheese on the top and brown quickly in the oven or under the grill.--Spelsbury. Cabbage Slaw. Remove the stalk and outer leaves of cabbage and shred finely. Cover the bottom of a saucepan with vinegar, add seasoning and celery salt. When hot, add a dessertspoonful of butter and the cabbage. Cook slowly for a few minutes. Add a well beaten egg and stir until it thickens. This can be eaten hot or cold.-South Stoke. Cauliflower Polonaise. Trim, wash and soak a nice rigid cauliflower. Divide it into oven-sized buds or flowerets; pare the stalks and rinse them again. Cook in salted water until three parts done. Pour off the water, add an ounce of fresh butter, season with pepper and salt and a grate of nutmeg. Cover with a little thick cream and simmer gently. Dish up on a hot dish in a dome and sprinkle with fried bread crumbs.-Bix and Assendon. Baked Dish of Turnip Tops, Spinach or Greens. 11/2 pounds of cooked green vegetable well drained, 1 onion, 2 oz. butter or dripping. 6 oz. grated cheese, 2 tablespoonfuls white bread crumbs. ,, Squeeze the green vegetables and chop fine. Butter a pie dish and put in the greens mixed with half the bread crumbs, the onion chopped fine and fried in butter or dripping, and the seasoning. Put the remainder of the bread crumbs on the top, the cheese, and a few nuts of butter. Bake until the top is nicely browned. Good Housewife's Green Peas. I quart shelled peas 4 oz. bacon 1 oz. butter Salt 6 small button onions n oz. flour Cupful of stock and pepper Cut the bacon into dice and fry it with the whole onions in melted butter Do not brown. Add the flour and mix in well, stir in the stock and cook for a few minutes. Add to this sauce the freshly shelled young peas, cook well until tender, allow- ing the sauce to reduce by half. Season with salt and pepper, and serve hot. Ktmner Keans With Bacon. Wash about 1 pound beans, string ;hem, but do not cut them up. Cut ibout 2 oz. bacon in small pieces, and fry gently in a saucepan until cooked. Add the beans and cover with V- pint water. Cook all togeth- ;r with the saucepan covered. Vegetable Hot I'ot. For ingredients, take as many different kinds of vegetables as possible, but always include potatoes, beans or peas. A little meat stock or bouillon and a little bacon. Take an equal quantity of each vegetable cut in dice, and the cab- age and lettuce shredded. Place all in an earthenware pot with the meat stock, pepper and salt, and the bacon cut in squares. Cook slowly in the oven or over the fire, stirring occasionally. It should be neither sloppy nor stodgy, but nicely blended.--Kingham. Some Culinary Notes. While C. dined with the Fellows of Trinity college, a recent Sunday night, Mrs. P. asked me to have supper with her and her boys who were home for vacation from their boarding schools. I like the English seclusion of dining. Even though the maid may have done all of the work, when the dinner gong has rung, she is out of sight and the dining room doors are closed until the meal is over. All of the food and china which will be needed are conveniently placed in the dining room. Polished Tables. I like the bare polished tables which seem to be customary for most family and company meals. Some times only a sort of cork mat is put under each plate to protect the table or a simple doily is put over this mat. The rest of the dishes are placed on the bare wood. It must save a tremendous amount of laundry and is certainly attractive. I like the bread boards with big knives and whole loaves of bread which are put on the table. There is something generous and homely about cutting bread at the table. It's an economical custom too, isn't it? Cheese and Crackers. I like the cheese and biscuits (crackers) which are invariably on the table and follow every meal, ev- cepting" breakfasts and teas. It gives one an opportunity to fill in the cracks, provided the fare has been a little thin. And cheese is a satisfying finale. I only wonder why. when the English can buy so reasonably the best cheese of their own country and all the continent they stick go tenaciously to common cheddar? But to continue with Mrs. P's supper, a half grapefruit, perfectly pre pared and lightly sweetened was a each person's place. When that was finished, one of the boys removed the remains, and placed fresh plates before his mother. She served each with a chunk of boiled salmon, liberally garnished with shredded lettuce, sliced cucumbers and wedges of fresh tomato. In the meantime, the other brother was cutting bread. The salmon had on top a rather thick, custardy mixture, not sweet. Vinegar and salt and pepper were passed for seasoning. When the salmon was gone, the boys gathered up the plates, and then set around the pudding which turned out to be banana fool, and a THE KNITTERS' CORNER P. had used crushed bananas with the cream, with a bit of stewed rhubarb for tanginess. A very tasty dessert.

After the cheese and biscuits, and we were settled before the fire in the living room, the maid brought in the coffee tray. Mother poured, and the boys handed around. Demerrara sugar (hard crystals of brown sugar) were served with this, and gave a very agreeable flavor to coffee. Gooseberry Fool. (This is what we usually hear of, but other fruits may be substituted. --From Mrs. Beeton.) 1 quart of green gooseberries 'A pound sugar y 2 pint water 1 pint cream Top and tail the gooseberries, cook them until tender with the water and sugar. Rub them through a sieve and add more sugar if necessary. Let the pulp become quite cold. Whip the cream stiffly, and stir it into the preparation a few minutes before serving. Custard, boiled, may be used if preferred. Sufficient for 6 or 7 persons. Send to table in custard glasses or large dish.
