HAIIUKK 1 What is the trick to making meringues — the kind served with ice cream? Although they have the reputation of being a difficult cooking problem they are actually very easy "to make. Before you decide to make them, however, be sure to plan on making good use of the egg yolks you will have left over. The egg whites., must ho beaten util they arc very stiff. Some recipes suggest that it is necessary to have them at room temperature, but I have had very good results when they have just come out of the refrigerator. After the whites are stiff, about three-fourts of the sugar must be beaten in very gradually, not more than a tablespoonfu! at a time. Then comes an extra beating of a minute or two, after which the remaining sugar should be folded in. Then the mixture is ready to be dropped on an ungreased baking sheet, which need not be covered with paper. Since the meringues run very little while baking, enough of the mixture should be dropped to make them the size you 7 want them to be when they are done. Large meringues will be softer in the center ann, therefore more appropriate to serve with ice cream. They should bt baked at rather low temperature, and cooking will take from 40 to IX) minutes depending upon the size. To remove them easily from the baking sheets, run a wet Kjiatula underneath each. If you like, you may crush the Mat side a little as soon as they arc removed. MEJUNGUICS 5 egg whites Dash of salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract l'/i cups sugar Beat egg whites until very stiff. Beat in salt, vanilia extract ami % cup sugar, one tablespoon at a time. Fold in remaining sugar and drop by tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet, piling mixture high in center of each meringue. Bake in slow oven (275 degrees F.) 40 to 60 in in- utes. Remove wilh wet spatula. Yield: 10 medium-sized meringues, or 20 small meringues. Place ball of ice cream on each serving pla'e. Place meringues on each side of ice cream. Serve garnished with whole or crushed sweetened fruit, or with chocolate sauce, (Copyright 1954, GfeneraJ Features Corp.) Here'! a tip for cake-makers.

Assortment Of Meat Buys Over Weekend By THK ASSOCIATED PKESS Housewives will find a godd assortment of meats on the list of specials in the nation's food stores this weekend. Generally, meat prices will b« down a bit from a week ago. Pork prices, however, are still so high that only rarely will you find It among the weekend features. By and large, retail beef prices are at the same levels as a year ago, although wholesale prices are slightly higher. Among beef cuts mentioned as features for the weekend were boneless chuck pot roast, round bone shoulder roast, steaks, and lib roast. Price reductions will range up to eight cents. Stewing and frying chickens will be among the specials in a good number of stores. The average price cut will be around two cents a pound. Some markets will trim prices on legs and rumps of veal, rated as one of the best of the current buys. Leg of lamb prices also will be down in some stores. flood vegetable buys include old crop potatoes, spinach, celery, asparagus, radishes,' escarole and roinaine and big Boston lettuce. i Cabbage, beans, peppers, tomatoes and c'orn moved higher. 49c HunkM, .Juicy, i-artfc, 800 8ize.
