THURSDAY, JUNE 16,1960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH High Cost Of Food Explained WHAT MAKIS DAD SO OlAD WHIN MOTHW SHOPS AT A»Pt ALL THOU... BY BDfni*. BAKBKR Recently at the market, a wale (hupped expressed his BUT, prise - or perhaps 1 should say shock — at the price of straw* berries, tto remakred that in ' California they would be priced at " only half as much. . Of course, he did not realize • that the cost of refrigerated transportation naturally influenced the - price of the fruit which had traveled all the way from the West to the East Coast. At the same time, there was a bargain in California products. Fine asparagus was selling by the pound for comparatively little. The marketer was also delighted at the quality and low price of fresh mushrooms which came daily from New Jersey and Pennsylvania to t h e New York markets by means of swift tracking. Some of there were as creamy white as if they had been freshly picked. A tinge of brown Is usually not significant, but when this has completely darkened, the' mushrooms have usually toughen-' ed to some extent. j There is no other vegetable that gives a meat-like flavor and which, for this reason, is so popular with all the members of t h e family. Mushrooms are carefully grown ip well fertilized beds inside dark mushroom houses where light will not destroy their color. Creamed Mushrooms 1 pound mushrooms % cup water 4 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon salt % teaspoon pepper IVx cups milk % cup mushroom stock * 1 teasoon onion juice Wash and stem mushrooms. Slice caps and tender portions of stems. Cook tough portions of stems with % cup water 10 minutes. Melt butter, add mushrooms, and cook over low heat about 3 minutes. Stir in flour, salt and pepper, and when well blended, add milk, strained mushroom stock and onion juice. Stir constantly over low heat until mixture thickens and boils. Serve on toast or in patty shells, or with hot split and buttered baking powder biscuits. Yield: 6 servings. Mushrooms la Sour Cream 1 tablespoon instant minced onion 1 tablespoon water 1 pound fresh mushrooms % cup butter or margarine 1 teaspoon seasoned sail ^, % cup commercial sour cream Stir onion into water. Wash and stem mushrooms. Sliice caps and tender portions of stems. Saute in butter or margarine until tender. Add onion, salt and sour cream and heat but do not boil. Yield: About 4 servings. (Copyright 1960, General Features Corp.) Roast Leg Of Lamb Is Delicious Meat By EDITH M. BARBER Nutrition is such a comparatively new science that the rules j put forth for proper diet were, in t h e beginning, quite inflexible. We were asked to build our menus upon certain classes of food such as protein, carbohydrates and fat. i Most of these terms were uii-j familiar and ils was necessary to interpret them. We learned that for protein, we must depend upon meat, fish eggs, cheese and milk. Starchy foods such as bread and cereals and sugars were classified as carbohydrates. The principal cources of f a t were butter, cream and shortenings. Later, margarine was added to this group and oils such as olive, cottonseed and corn were added to the fat group. When the importance of minerals and vitamins were realized, the nutrition problem became more complicated as far as our understanding was concerned. It was gratifying when we learned a varied choice of foods for our three- meal-a-day plan would supply us with all the nutrients we needed. We do not ignore those meats and potatoes that have always been considered the standard ha- is for menu making. We add, however, plenty of other vegetables and fruits, the most important being the citrus family, and most! of us have established that very) good salad habit that supplies us with plenty of green and raw vegetables. Hoart Uf of Urab Have butcher remove shank bone, and tie roast firmly. Rub in salt, pepper and any herbs you like, and insert slivers of garlic.
