PAGE TWENTY-SIX EVENING TELEGRAPH , JUNfc! '26, Bahamian Steak For Ju By Uncle FRANK KOHLER (Chief Skllletwsr) A ham is our traditional fare for the Fourth of July — but if you're going to be serving a group outdoors (or indoors), we suggest BAHAMIAN STEAK. Here we like a big Porterhouse, cut about 3 inches thick and well marbled. Remove from refrigerator and cover it lightly about 3 hours before you start the cooking. Trim off fat and rub each side with salt and pepper. Sear close to very hot coals for 2 minutes per side. Use tongs in turning. Move the meat up to about 4 inches above the coals, and turn it EVERY MINUTE so both sides cook evenly. We like this sort of beef very well done on the outside and very rare in the middle, so each bite gives that beautiful symphony of flavor ("slurp!") Delicious Dish Sour Cream Raisin Pie By EDITH M. BARBER Raisins are often thought of as an entity in themselves rather than as grapes. Vineyards in California supply us with millions ol pounds of the dark raisins. Fres no County alone produces more than Spain which is second on the producing list. The less common white raisin ' known as Sultana is still highly prized. Spain was the original source of these, and Colonial households watched eagerly for clipper ships to 'dock and bring Government Crisis Still Grips Italy ROME (AP)—Giovanni Leone president of Italy's Chamber of Deputies, began a new attempt today to form a government by calling in leaders of nearly every political group—from Communists to fascists. President Antonio Segni asked the Neopolitan to seek a way out of the worsening political crisis, which today rounded out its fifth week with no solution in sight. It appears highly unlikely that , Italy will have anything more i than an interim government by June 30, when President Kennedy is scheduled to arrive. A middle-of-the-road Christian Democrat, Leone, 54, was named premier-designate after the leader of his party, Aldo Moro, was forced to abandon his attempt to form a new center-left government. A Socialist party revolt deprived Moro of the support he needed to get a majority behind a coalition of Christian Democrats, Democratic Socialists and Republicans. Immediately after getting the nod from Segni, Leone went into conference with leaders of his own party. Then, for the first time since, the crisis began with Amintore Fanfani's resignation May 16 he arranged consultations with leaders .of parties outside the four with whom Moro had been dickering. them the important ingredient for holiday fruit cake and pudding. Today every grocery has a year-round supply of the dark raisins which are prepared by drying and packaging from the Thompson seedless grapes. It is difficult today to find the larger cluster raisins except at holiday time when we like to offer them by the bunch with unshelled nuts, which we always associate with them. Of course, there are so many uses for the smaller raisins which we use in breads, in cakes and in many desserts. SOUR CREAM RAISIN PIE 1 egg or 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten 1 cup sour cream or buttermilk 1 tablespoon vinegar % cup sugar 2 tablespoons flour % teaspoons cinnamon or allspice Vz teaspoon nutmeg V* teaspoon salt 2 cups raisins Pastry for a 9" single crust pie, unbaked Combine first 3 ingredients.

Bake in a very hot oven (450° F.) for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to moderate oven (350° F.) and bake 30 to 35 minutes longer or until crust is brown. Serve slightly warm.

General Features Corp.) French author Voltaire reportedly drank 50 cups of coffee a day when he was 80. We allow a total of about 17 minutes per side. When done as you like it, place the steak on a carving board anc cut thin slices diagonally. Pop each slice into a dish of melted butter, then into a split and toasted bun and serve while hot. Elegant Serve sauces if you like— one suggestion is BIMINI SAUCE, made by heating 1 jar of prepared Bahamian type mustard ivith li pound butter and 1 can of beef bouillon. Stir until smooth and blended. SAVOURY ZUCCHINI HALVES. An "indoor or outdoor" vegetable recipe of merit — you can do these in a skillet on the grill while cooking the Bahamian Steak if you like. Use tender young zucchini squash for this. I'.fc pound young zucchini 'Hi tablespoons butter Dash Worcestershire 1 tablespoon grated onion and juice 1 tablespoon concentrated beef extract (or 1 beef bouillon cube, crushed) Wash the squash, trim off both ends, and cut each in half lengthwise. Heat butter in a large skillet having a tight-fitting cover. Stir in Worcestershire and onion, then the meat extract. Stir and blend well, then lay the squash pieces in. cut side down. Cover and let simmer until tender. Turn the halves over, cover, and simmer about 5 minutes more. This should suffice for 4 to 5 customers* FRESH PEACE PIE - "Um-m- m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m!" Pastry for a 9-inch pie % cup sugar 2 to 3 tablespoons flour \i teaspoon cinnamon 5 cups peeled, sliced fresh peaches 2 tablespoons butter Dash of lemon juice (option al) Line your pie tin, allowing enough pastry for a lattice top Combine sugar, flour and cinna mon and toss lightly with the peach slices, and arrange them in the shell. Dot with butter anc drizzle with lemon juice if desired. Arrange the lattice crust. Flute the edges handsomely. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, until crust is nicely browned. Some like to use brown sugar for not over % of the sugar called for, for a "change of pace." Use your favorite pastry recipe or mix if you like. Here is MOTHER KOHLER'S PIE CRUST which can be kept quite a time in the refrigerator, uncovered. A handy thing to have around for a quick pie. Warm 1 pound of pure lard to room temperature in a large bowl Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and mix thoroughly. Sift 5 to 6 cup> of flour with 2 teaspoons salt and 2 teaspoons baking powder, anc work the mixture into the larc mixture until a smooth dough is formed.
