By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor Use ready-to-eat foods that come In jars or cans or packages artlully it you \vant to save time and energy In getting summer meals and yet have good eating. Here are some t&gestions: \*>on't serve the entire meal out of jars and cans and packages if you can help it. Let a few of these foods help out and add something home-prepared. TTse Different Touch Present your ready-to-eat food with a different touch. For Instance ready-prepared Borscht (beet soup to you) can b« chilled and poured firm Rhubarb Adds Pleasure To Your Diet Outdoor rhubarb from local truck gardens or your own adds nutrition and pleasure to your budget menus. Judging quality Is a fairly simple matter. The better grades are fresh, flrm, crisp and tender. The young stalfca, which are easily dls- 1 tingulshect because their tender leaves *rc not fully grown, are the . 4tft delicious, the juiciest and! mosl The stems offer a definite contribution to the diet as they supply vitamin* B and C as well some of the important food minerals. The leaves, on the other hand must not be eaten as they contain » considerable amount of ox alic acid, which Is toxic when taken in large enough quantities. To preserve the attractive color of rhubarb, do not peel the stems —Just wash and cut them in pieces about half an inch or an inch long and cook them "as Is. "The skin will not only provide color bul will also hold the pieces in shape out In a minute; but with It serve a lazy-susan or some other attractive platter of accompaniments — sliced cucumber (with tlie peel left on and scored before slicing thin), boiled new potatoes sprinkled with parsley, sliced and whole scallions, sliced hard-cnoked eggs, and a bowl of sour cream* Or instead of always serving the Borscht straight from the Jar add two cups of tomato juice to it and a ablespoon of cooking sherry, then illl overnight to mingle flavors. erve next day with a dollop of sour ream and a sprinkling of diced risp cucumber on top. Canned Beans Bettered Canned baked beans are a widcly- scd food that taste belter when ou've added a home touch. One lan I know likes to season the olasses variety with Worccster- nire sauce, curry powder, onion salt nd then adds diced fresh tomatoes s they heat. For a tasty baked bean asserole. empty canned Boston aked beans Into individual cas- eroles. and add two tablespoons of lolasses to each dish, stirring it in. (ring cubes of cooked ham or uncheon meat, tiny cooked white nions (they come ready-prepared n lars), and small wedges of apple n skewers or steel knitting needles; ieat in a moderate oven until the beans are bubbly and hot. Serve with a vegetable salad, milk and muffins. Cooking Time Pins Flavor on Icings Do you have trouble making boiled icings that are creamy, yet flrm enough to stand up proudly?

Then strain it throuyh a fine strainer or a piece of cloth into a clean can. Cover tightly and store In the refrigerator. It can be used again and again until it becomes dark In color.
