is cookJNq 'lONJON "London broil" usually means a flank steak, which is less tender than some 'other cuts. Use a meat tenderizer or a marinade, and when you serve it, cut it in thin slices on the diagonal. SERvw For finest flavor and texture, most cheeses should be served at room temperature. copiNq w t POWER When power failures occur, don't open your freezer or freezing compartment unless it is absolutely necessary. A full freezer will stay cold many hours. longer than a freezer only one-fourth full; a freezer full of meat will not warm up as fast as one full of baked foods. If you use dry ice, wear gloves when you handle it. It is safe to refreeze most foods if they still contain ice crystals or if they are still cold -- about 40 degrees -- and have been held at this temperature no longer than one or two days after thawing. Avoid refreezing vegetables, shellfish and cooked foods when they have thawed completely. chlNESE choOSC CORNSTARch Americans have provided Chinese cooks the world over with a favorite ingredient -- comstarch. They how use it even in China .to replace water chestnut starch, and it gives Chinese dishes their typical translucent look. Comstarch may be used wherever you might use a little flour; but, because it has twice the thickening power of flour, use only half as much. Soften it in a small amount of cold water before adding it to a sauce, stew or gravy. VERSATILE UTENSll - Do you have an old-fashioned wire-mesh com popper tucked away somewhere? You'll find it makes a fine barbecue utensil for grilling frankfurters, bacon, sausages or com on the cob over glowing coals. FREEZER dooR Tiqhr? If the door seal on your freezer is not tight, cold air will escape and the temperature inside will rise. Make this test: open the freezer door, place a portion of a dollar bill against the seal, and close the door. If you can pull the bill out, the seal is not tight. Call the repair man. choosiNq chickEN PORTIONS When you buy chicken halves or quarters for barbecuing, allow V? chicken per serving if the chickens are small (2 to 2Vs Ibs.), 'A chicken for larger birds. Maximum freezer-storage time for chicken giblets is three months. After this length of time, quality is not maintained. dAiRy foods RANk hiqh A study made by the University of 'Minnesota showed that budget-minded horhemakers spent a larger share of their total food money on dairy items than more casual shoppers. This is a good plan to follow, because dairy foods rank high as a moderate-cost source of protein, calcium and vitamins A and D. shoppiNq FOR ONE OR TWO It is often easier and more economical to shop and cook for a family of four to six than for one or two. One answer is to buy and cook the larger amounts, then use what you need and freeze the rest for another meal or two. ulTRA'pASTEURilATION Ultra-pasteurization, a new processing technique, has made it possible to extend the shelf life of cream and half-and-half by heating them to 280 degrees for about two seconds. This higher temperature produces an almost sterile product which can be sold for 15 days after the date of pasteurization. This process is not considered acceptable for milk because the high temperatures give milk a "cooked" taste.
