TWENTY-TWO 1V1ASUN CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUAKY 4 FARM WIVES OF STATE TURN TO MAKING CHEESE Curds and Whey Graduated From Mother Goose Rhymes. .AMES, (IF)--Curds and whey, Miss Annette Petersen said today, have graduated from Mother Goose rhymes to a- conspicuous place on the Iowa farm family dinner table. Iowa farm wives now are making cottage cheese--not the solid round molds o£ their grandmother's day. The cumbersome cured cheese press has joined the spinning wheel in the attic and fortunately so, the Iowa State college extension nutritionist said, because grandmothers spent a lot of time and energy making "American" cheese. In grandmother's day cottage cheese was just "sour milk salvage," Miss Petersen recalled. Grandma heated the milk haphazardly. One day the curd turned out rubbery, the next, dry and crumbly. Make Soft Cheeses. Today farm \vives take pride in making soft cheeses which scientists have established as a healthful, economical food, she said. And now they want to know how to make the cheese "scientifically." They want to know why cottage cheese sometimes resembles flaky popcorn and other times just used-up sour milk. More than 15,000 extension circulars describing methods of making soft cheeses have been distributed in the last six months to Iowa homemakers .who want to be "in the know," the nutritionist Said. Cottage cheese and neufchatel cheese, a soft cheese usually made from while milk, sne pointed out, are being introduced into Iowa farm menus and children's school lunches via sandwich fillings, Building Bones. For building bones and brawn-calcium and protein respectively-cottage cheese has few competitors, the nutritionist said. A serving--about half a cup--of cottage cheese will provide about a third of an adult's daily supply of protein, while a third of a cup will furnish a fifth of a day's supply of calcium. The big thing in home cheese making, Miss Petersen said, 'is heating the clabbered milk at a low temperature. The housewife needs only simple equipment--a !ai'gej?.°_w.!i_a cheese cloth, colan- - der, Jadle and a dairy thermometer. Housewives may obtain a copy of the circular describing how to make cottage and other soft cheeses free by writing to Miss Petersen, Merrill hall, Iowa State college, Ames, Iowa. KITCHEN NEEDS RIGHT LAYOUT Convenient Equipment Part of Requirements for Housewife. AMES -- Since the average housewife spends so much, of her · time in the kitchen, it should be attractively and conveniently arranged. The size of the kitchen depends upon equipment to be used in it and. the number in the family, says Mrs. Vivian J. Brashear, associate professor of household equipment at Iowa State college. For a family of 4, a kitchen 9 by 12 feet is good. 'A rectangular shape is preferable because the distance across the room is less than in a square kitchen o£ the same area. For ventilation and adequate light, windows should be placed above the kitchen equipment, preferably on two .sides of the room. There should be as few doors as possible. The equipment should be arranged from right to left for a right-handed person and the working surface made as nearly continuous as possible. When finished with stainless, washable materials, walls and floors are easily cleaned, she suggests. The kilchen may be divided in to three working centers, the equipment needed for each center grouped within it. The first of these--the receiving, storage and preparation center--is for the care of food as it enters the kitchen and for its preparation for cooking. It should be grouped about the service entrance. The equipment used here includes the refrigerator, cupboards, work counters, sink and bins for supplies.
