Old Sailor Stew Beef Tender in 90 Minutes By GAYNOR MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor Many years ago Swedish sailors had a beef stew worthy of attention. The succulent dish was simple to prepare. A chunk of beef was sliced thin and browned in fat. Onions and potatoes were added, also a good measure of spices. The whole simmered long hours . over the glowing coals. Those sailors were in no hurry. While the pot brewed, tales were told as the aroma of the stew mingled with the scent of the smoke of the fire. Ann WilJiams-Heller, a noted European food expert, now an American citizen, picked up the sea-going: recipe on her many* travels. The original recipe took hours to cook. But Miss Williams- Heller, home economics consultant for Farberware Co., has cut the time to 90 minutes using the original ingredients. To do this she uses a Dutch oven of stainless steel with aluminum clad bottom and tight fitting cover.

Say It with Ice Cream and Cookies By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press food Editor HERE COME Cherry-Vanilla Ice Cream and Heart Cookies with which to charm your guests on Valentine's Day.

The cookieswill be a labor of love— thin crisp .rolling the cookies thin and decorating them with pink frosting. Serve these two sweets as an evening snack with assorted salted nuts and plenty of good strong hot coffee.

And remember that the time we've given in our recipe for refrigerating the dough is aproxi- mate. Refrigerator temperatures differ, so watch the dough to make sure it is neither too soft nor too hard to roll. Pay heed to u* when we tell you to roll, only a small amount of the cookie dough at one Ume—say enough for six cookies. And while you roll and cut out this small amount, keep the rest of the dough in the refrigerator. You can serve the cherry-vanilla ice cream "as is" with the cookies, but if you are ot a mind to treat it a fancier way, here are suggestions. Perch scoops of the ice cream on squares of white cake or tuck them into cream puffs; top with butterscotch or caramel sauce. Place scoops of the ice cream in Use those scraps of leftover pastry this way. Roll out thin and cut into fancy shapes; sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese and paprika and bake.
