MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1939 17 FOODS EDITOR GETS RECIPES FROM OLD COOK BOOK Collection of Church Publications Interests Mrs. Reeves Tells of Unusual Recipes Disclosed by Cook Books Edited by Ladies' Aids and Missionary Societies More church cook books are reviewed by Mrs. L. A, Reeves, Globe- Gazette foods editor, in her column. Mrs 1 . Reeves is collecting old cook books, edited by ladies aids and missionary, societies, and is anxious to hear about any cook books of this type which you may own. These books are not only important for the excellent recipes which they contain, but for the many bits of advice and the like which may be found in them. SPCAKI P E E V E ? Here is another column from, the past. Next week I do hope to have something from the old cook books of my readers. The church cook book recipes of years ago make the foods used in them sound almost foreign. Doesn't "a wine glass of rosewater" sound as if it came from a French recipe? Herbs and spices used by our grandmothers lind. little place in today's cooking and to gather them Spring's Most Flattering ENSEMBLES! fi-efh from the garden unthought of by most modern housewives. Beautiful little rhymes are found at the head of the chapters of some of these volumes. One from "Cookies and Doughnuts"-- 'O, weary mothers mixing dough, Don't you wish that food would grow? Your lips would smile, I know, to see A cooky bush or doughnut tree." The following applies to most young women. . . "But tho' so much of learning had been crammed into her head, She couldn't for the life o£ her compound a loaf of bread." Which, in our grandmother's day was almost a disgrace. Today it may be an accomplishment but certainly not a necessity, y Our first recipes today are from a cook book edited by Ladies' Aid society of the First Congregational church of Eaton Rapids, Mich., 1915. A hungry man with memories of his youth asked me for a recipe for fried pies not long ago and with his assurance that the following pies are like his mother made and were the best thing a small boy ever ate. I am sending first a recipe for-Fried Pies Make pie crust, roll in smal rounds, fill one-half with fruit season and turn the other hal Prints..

The cleverest thing in any of the books is the following quotation from Mary E. Homans. "How to Preserve a Husband-First be careful in selection. Do not choose one too young. Take only such as have been reared in good families and had good training. When once selected let the past remain forever settled and give the entire thought to the future. Some insist on keeping him n a pickle, others prefer hot water. It does not seem to be generally known that even poor HANLONTOWN -- Mr. and Mrs. John Furness of Hanlontown announce the engagement of their daughter, Esther, to James F. Haugen, son of'Mr. and Mrs. Ole Haugen of Fertile. The wedding will be in April. varieties will be made sweet, tender and good by garnishing them with patience, smiles and affection. They should be wrapped in a mantle of charity and kept warm with a steady fire of devotion. Thus treated they will keep for years as good as when first selected. Sometimes they improve with age." How many have checked up on their nice old books? Most interesting reading as well as valuable recipes will ,be your reward. Please share it with the rest of us.

Canning Pieplant Without Cooking Cut pieplant as for pies, put in a crock and pound with a wooden potato masher until juicy. Use glass topped cans which have been thoroughly sterilized. Fill as full as possible and seal without sugar or cooking. An older one is a little green covered book compiled by ladies of the Atlantic Congregational church and congregation, St. Paul, Minn., 1897. Under the head "Poultry and Game," we find recipes for broiled prepared by this method and sh asked for a second helping. Escalloped Codfish Season a pint of milk with sal and pepper.

HiiU The simple fact about coffee taste is this: No matter how you make it, coffee aroma and flavor are determined by oae essential thing. That is, the natural flavoring oils contained within the coffee itself. Only nature pots these flavoring oils in. No roasting, blending or mellowing process can do mote than bring them out. Yeses ago James Folger discovered tiny coffee plantations on certain high mountain, slopes in tropical America. There he found a different coffee, so much tetter fasting the region has now become known by experts as the world's coffee-growing paradise. Because on thesemountaio slopes nature puts into coffee a greater amount and finer quality of the natural flavoring HOW DID YOU DO IT, HONEY/ COOKING LESSONS ON THE SIDE OR, oils which give coffee its aroma and taste.- Scientists say this is be cause these mountain slopes have an unusual, mineral-enriched volcanic soil, drenched by tropical rains, and warmed by the sparkling mountain sunshine of those upper altitudes; That's u-by f coffee experts say Folgcr's-- mountain groum in these limited areas and costing Folger more than lowland coffees ·---has quality you can taste!
