TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 6 j 1936 JEANETTE BEYER GIVES METHODS OF PREPARING MEAT MANY GROUPINGS OF FOODS LISTED Globe-Gazette Food Expert Suggests Pork Koast With Dressing; Ham With Orange Sections; Spareribs and Sauerkraut. When the thermometer registers around zero and seems to have a preference to stay below the zero mark, good meat is a. cheering thought. Miss Jeanette Beyer, Globe-Gazette food specialist, has devoted her Table Talk this week to modern meats and new methods of preparing t'/»m. Meat thermometers make the cooking of roasts a less haphazard business than formerly and Miss Beyer tells how to use them. We Call on Miss K. for Modern Meats. Recent articles by Stefansson have no doubt made many of our readers hungry for a. nice juicy penguin or a fat haunch of seal (if seals come that way)'. So I went to see Miss K. who sits in a little glass cage of one of our city's largest markets to see what she had in the line of walrus and polar bears. We feel so well satisfied from holiday revelries in the matter of turkey and chicken, that a little blubber, or some other eskimo delicacy (I've heard they are fond of the contents of seal stomachs) might prove an unusual touch for coining dinner parties. But when Miss K. and her brother began to describe tie succulence of rump and rib, I decided roast beef might have something over roast whale. Though I gathered from the writings of Vilhjalmur that if you would have the benefit of penguin vitamin C, you should eat him raw or lightly boiled. Raw, partially frozen meats, he found curative for scurvy. Miss K.'s brother thought spareribs and sauerkraut something mighty fine for these hearty days. I don't know whether you should let the neighbors in on this treat, but surely call in the relatives. If you don't get your vitamin C in the meat, the kraut will not let you down. Spareribs with Sauerkraut. "A Scurvy Trick" 3 pounds pork spareribs. 3 cups sauerkraut. Yi cup brown sugar. Salt and pepper. Choose spareribs which have a layer of meat on them. Wipe with a damp cloth. Place on a rack in roasting pan. Place in a hot oven (500 degrees F.) for 20 minutes, or until nicely browned. Then reduce the oven temperature to 300 ··--degrees F. Place sauerkraut .on ribs Sprinkle with Brown, sugar, and return to oven and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Spareribs may also be filled with a "ood dressing, made of bread or crackers. I have a recipe which calls for chestnuts, but the difficulty this year is to get the chestnuts. Still, if. anyone would like to have it, 3 shall be glad to mail or print it Fill the ribs with your favorite stuffing, fold the rib ends over and tie to hold in place. Put in a moderate oven (300 degrees F.) and bake for about an hour. Miss K. had other suggestions for this popular meat. A fresh ham roast, costing 26c a pound, is delicious and slices beautifully. A fresh ham roll, also 26c a pound, is boneless and all. solid meat. It weighs from 4 to 5 pounds and is a good buy.

State bone removed, is the same price, and one can stuff it with dressing. Stuffed Shoulder of Pork. Square-cut shoulder of pork. 2 cups corn pulp. 1 teaspoon celery salt. % cup melted butter. 20 soda crackers, crumbled. 2 tablespoons green pepper, minced. Salt. Pepper. Have the bones removed from the shoulder of pork. Make a stuffing by mixing crumbled crackers, corn, minced green pepper, moistening with melted butter, and seasoning with salt and pepper, and celery salt. Fill the cavity in the pork shoulder with this stuffing, and sew or skewer the edges together. Place or. a rack in an open roasting pan. Place in a hot oven (480 degrees F.) and sear for 20 or 30 minutes, or until nicely browned. Then rapidly reduce the temperature to that of a slow oven (300 degrees F.) and continue roasting until done. Allow about 40 minutes to the pound for roasting. Tips on Pork Roasts. Always cook pork to tie well- done stage. The long cooking with a moderate temperature develops the fine flavor of the meat. Because pork fat smokes at a lower temperature, an oven temperature lower than that used for beef and Iamb is better. Pork is roasted in an uncovered pan with the fat side up. Butvpork chops seem to taste better if they are cooked in a covered pan, after first being browned. Do not add water in roasting. But a little water may be put in the pan in which chops are cooked. For your especial specials, here is a handsome dish: Boast Pork With Sweet Potatoes 1 pork loin 6 oranges, uniform size 6 sweet potatoes ; 6 marshmallows Butter Salt and pepper Have a loin of pork prepared at :he market with the chine bone sawed loose. Season with salt and pepper. Insert a meat thermometer so that the bulb reaches the center of the roast. Place roast on a rack .n an uncovered roasting pan. Sear for 15 minutes in a hot oven (480 degrees F.) Reduce the temperature to 300 degrees F., and continue cooking until the roast is done. When the meat thermometer registers 185 degrees F., the roast is done. Allow 30 minutes s. pound for roaming, if you have no thermometer. Cut a slice off the top of the oranges and scoop out the pulp. Scallop the edges with a sharp knife. Pare and boil sweet potatoes. Mash, Mix with some of the orange pulp, season with salt, pepper and butter. Fill the orange cups with this mixture and place in the oven to heat. Two or three minutes before serving time, remove from the oven, top each orange with a marshmallow and put back in the oven to puff and slightly brown the marshmallows. Serve orange cups around roast pork. Roast ham is always a fortune choice for a festive meat. But the newlywed often overlooks it because of its size. Here is a slice for four: Ham Baked With Orange Sections lii. Ibs. smoked ham, cut an inch thick ] /i tablespoons prepared mustard 4 large navel oranges H cup brown sugar Place the ham in a well-oiled baking pan. Rub with mustard and almost cover with sections of orange from which the membrane has been removed. Cover with the sugar. Place in a hot oven, 375 degrees F., and when beginning to brown, pour the orange juice over and around. Reduce the heat and continue to cook slowly until the ham is tender, allowing from 45 to 50 minutes. A Meat Thermometer. Every day sees the culinary art changing into an exact science. Recipes for meat cookery are becoming as definite as recipes for making cake. The latest, most modern way to tell when meat is done is with the roast-meat thermometer. The thermometer is inserted so that the bulb reaches the center of the thickest part of the roast. Care must be taken that the bulb does not rest on bone or fat. The thermometer registers the temperature at the center of the meat. Since experiments have shown at what temperature the roast is done, by a glance at the thermometer, one need never be chagrined by a raw interior, when the outside looks so beautifully brown. These temperatures differ with the degree of doneness you want and the kind ow meat. The most mod' orii recipes give definite degrees. ; l r cr in.Uiincc. here is Koa.sf Kills ol ISct'l. | 2 or 3 standing rib roast Salt a«d pepper. Select a 2 or S standing rib roast- Sprinkle the meat with salt, pepper, and lightly with flour. Place the roast in an open pan without water and with the fat side up. As the fat melts and cooks out, it will baste the meat. In this position the backbone and ribs form a rack. Make a small incision through the fat, cover and insert a meat thermometer so that the bul reaches the center of the roast Place the meat in a hot oven (500 degrees F.) and sear for 20 or 30 minutes or until lightly browned, then rapidly reduce the oven temperature to that of a slow oven (300 degrees F.) and continue cooking until the desired degree of doneness is reached. The meat thermometer will register 140 degrees F. for a rare roast, 160 degrees F. for a medium-done roast, and 180 degrees F. for a well-done roast. Allow 16 minutes to the pound for cooking a rare roast, 22 minutes to the pound for cooking a rare roast, 22 minutes per pound for a medium, and 30 minutes a pound for a well-done roast. With roast beef, we can't resist a Yorkshire pudding, which should be baked, you know, in some of the drippings from the roast. Since the English use self-rising flour, one of our friends tells us that she gets the English effect to the pudding, by adding baking powder to our ordinary recipe. We suggest a teaspoonful. Individual Yorkshire Puddings. l'/i cups flour % teaspoon salt ! 1 /2 cups milk 2 eggs Butter or drippings Parsley Sift the flour and salt together and gradually beat in the milk, then the eggs, whipped light. Melt a little butter or some beef drippings in individual muffin pans and pour in the mixture one inch deep. Bake from 25 to 30 minutes in a hot oven, 400 degrees F., basting with a little of the fat from the pan in which the beef is roasting. Serve as a garnish to the roast, alternating the little puddings with sprigs of parsley. Have You a Sharp Knife? Miss K. had something else up her sleeve, for she wanted all our readers to know, that no matter how choice the cut of meat, and how carefully it is prepared, if it isn't cut with a sharp knife, it may easily be ruined. She advises having "a good knife which is kept apart just for carving. She suggests that if it isn't in first class condition now, you take it to one of the many places which sharpen tools: Since the heat of the roast seems to take the edge off, keep a steel or stone handy for frequent in-between sharpenings. But a good meat cook, should never be without her sharp knife. A Mixed GrilL We can't leave this interesting subject 'without mentioning lamb and a word about veal. For an excellent veal roast. Miss K. advises four to six pounds from the "bottom cutlet," which slices beautifully, either hot or cold and is so good with dressing baked with it. Lamb has the advantage of being tender, no matter from what part of the animal the cut is taken. New methods of cutting and of boning parts, such as the shoulder and breast, make attractive and easily carved roasts. But I believe my favorite section of the lamb is the chcp, grilled with a kidney, a slice of bacon, a fat pork sausage, a mushroom and a half a tomato. Served with hot, crisp, salty French fried potatoes and a sprig of cress, this is special with a capital S. Tips on Broiling. The seasonings of salt, pepper, and melted butter are usually added after the meat is on the platter. Or the salt and pepper may be added to the chops when ready to turn. Lamb chops are put on a cold greased broiler rack. Place chops about 2 to 3 inches below the flame. Only one turning is necessary as the meat will be about half done when it is nicely browned on one side. Broil with the oven, door open. Lamb chops cut 1% to 2 inches thick will require 25 to 30 minutes; cut % inch thick, they will cook in ten to 15 minutes. Nola Has a Dinner Party. I don't know how she made the salad, but it was delicious and was on the table when we sat down. Stiffened with gelatine, there was whipped cream in it and maybe cheese and certainly pineapple. Each person had a slice laid on crisp lettuce leaves. It was a. delightfully cool fresh beginning for the good things which followed: Fried Chicken Cauliflower String Beans Scalloped Potatoes" Homemade Parker House Rolls Currant Jelly Celery Apple Pie Cheese Coffee Salted Nuts Chocolates Here's Clyde's Wassail I 1 know it isn't wassail time, but better save this choice recipe while you have it, and winter time is cider time, and for cold nights make it hot and- spicey! 2 cups sweet cider 1 cup sugar Stick cinnamon and cloves (to look at) Ground nutmeg, cinnamon and touch of ginger (to taste). Bring almost to a boil and just before serving, add the juice of 2 lemons and 6 oranges. The fruit juices should not be boiled. This is good (and moral). Boiled cider can be used, but the fresh cider which is just beginning to show a few beads is more delicious. Hmds Bilile Institute. CHICAGO--i/l';--Tbc Kev. A. G. Annette, Grundy Center, Iowa, was re-elected president of the Moody Bible Institute Alumni association in conference here. 3 PROPOSALS ON FARM PROBLEM Suggestions Offered by Hope of Kansas, Friend of Alf Landon. WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. UP--A three way attack on the farm problem was urged in the house today by Representative Hope of Kansas, ranking republican on the agriculture committee and friend of Governor Alf M. Landon of Kansas, republican presidential possibility. His three suggestions were:1--Development of the home market for the farmer. 2--A domestic allotment plan to give producers of surplus crops an equivalent for the industrial tariff. 3--Development of foreign markets Hope recently introduced with advice of house republican leaders, a bill providing- for payment of bounties to wheat, cotton, tobacco and hog producers. The payments would be based on the domestically- consumed share of their crops and would be equivalent to the percentage of their dollar going to pay for industrial tariffs. Like Landon's Idea. This is generally the same idea as that advanced recently by Governor Landon- The pending administration soil conservation substitute for the AAA was conceded by Hope to be "a worthy program." but he contended "it will not be effective as far as controlling production is concerned." "As a mallei' of fact, in the long run it will result in increasing production because anything whicn results in increased fertility means increased yields. Co-Op. Marketing. "It has been proposed that a reduction program be undertaken through the state. Probably this can be done constitutionally but it hardly seems reasonable to suppose that the individual states can effectively control production when it could not be done nationally." The government should continue to encourage co-operative marketing, Hope said. "Likewise, we should to a greater extent use the machinery set up in the agricultural adjustment act for making use of marketing agreements." Hope said the supreme court did not limit the power of congress to levy taxes for benefit payments. Compensate Producers. "There is, therefore, no reason why, upon the proper basis, the federal government may not continue to compensate the producers of surplus crops for the disadvantages which they suffer by reason of the fact that the price of their products is fixed in the world market." Arguing for home market preservation, he condemned the administration's reciprocal tariff agreements as made "at the expense of agriculture." He said he believed something could be done toward disposition of surpluses along the lines of bilateral trade agreements urged by George N. Peek, former foreign trade adviser to President Roosevelt. Land Will Be Used for Wild Life Conservation WASHINGTON--Iff)--Rexford G. TugweU, resettlement administrator, announced Thursday that more than 3,800,000 acres of land now being bought up will be used for wild life conservation.

IOWA FIRE DOES $15,000 DAMAGE Destroys Two Buildings and Damages Two Others at Grand River. GRAND RIVER--UK--Fire destroyed two buildings and damaged two others Thursday with an estimated loss in excess of 515,000. The blaze at times threatened part of the business district of Grand River, a town of 400 population' in Decatur county. Volunteer firemen battled the fire with chemicals and snow for more than two hours before bringing it under control. The fire was discovered about 3 a. m., in the Jack Ehle restaurant on Mala street. It spread to the Earl Lamoree hardware 'store adjoining the cafe on the north. Both buildings were destroyed. The Walter Overholzer cafe on the north and the Daughton and Bone Seed company structure on the south were damaged. All are one story buildings. Exploding ammunition in the hardware store for a time kept the fire fighters away from the blaze. None \vas- injured. The cause of the blaze was not determined immediately. POLITICS, COLD HURT BUSINESS Seven Major Lines in Iowa Continue to Advance, Says Davies. IOWA CITY--(/B--Political conflict and the most severe winter weather in years have exerted a retarding influence on state and national business, although seven major lines in Iowa continue to show an advance, according to Prof. George R. Davies of the University of Iowa bureau of business research. Professor Davies said today in the current issue of his monthly business digest, that "there is a general hesitation and uncertainty on the part of business which Is not accounted for by seasonal influences. The outlook is obscured by possible foreign entanglements, inflationary tendencies, and political uncertainty." He pointed out, however, that bank check transactions, life insurance sales, employment wholesale prices, and farm prices, were among the lines registering gains. Declines in building contracts, railroad car- loadings and r.etail sales were regarded as chiefly seasonal. "There is a general agreement among agricultural experts," Professor Davies said, "that no immediate collapse in farm prices can be expected from the supreme court decision invalidating the AAA. The buying power of the farmers does not, as yet, appear to have been seriously affected."' "When we turn from expressions of political and agricultural leaders to the utterances of industrial leaders, we find direct satisfaction in the elimina.tion of the farm plan. In these quarters hope prevails that political forces are on the wane, and hope prevails that corporate industry will be able to bring about at least temporary prosperity by the large volume of machine re- conditioning which lies ahead. Beyond that they hope to return to a budget balancing program and a gradual lessening of taxation." Uses 5 Horses to Pull Bobsled With 5 Hogs EMMBTSBURG -- Five horses were used by C. K. Arbogast, farmer, 2 miles south of Emmotsburg, to haul 5 head of hogs to the Decker plant here Wednesday afternoon, and then he experienced great difficulty in getting through snow drifted sideroads, Arbogast told Tom Eaton, Decker employe. Arbogast was suffering from exposure when he arrived at the plant, Eaton said. The farmer said some drifts were nearly 5 feet high and the horses were just able to drag the bob sled through the snow. Madden Starts Five Year Anamosa Term CHEROKEE--/P---Harry Madden of Sioux City was taken by Sheriff A. N. Tilton to the state reformatory at Anamosa to begin serving a five year term. Madden was sentenced here for alleged participation in the theft of grease from a Quimby rendering works.
