THURSDAY, JUNE a?, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TWENTY-NINE Barbecued Stuffed Chicken Breasts Are Luxurious By UNCLE FRANK KOHLER (Chief vSkllleteer) Barbecued Stuffed Chicken Breasts. For luxurious outdoor eating (or indoors if you prefer) for 6, you need 12 small boned chcken breasts, or 6 large ones, and 12 thin slices of Canadian bacon. You also need a double thickness of heavy duty aluminum foil to sei-ve as a griddle over the coals, placed on the grill. Also provide: % cup minced green onions and tops & cup fine minced celery 1 teaspoon dried tarragon 1 cup minced parsley Salt and pepper Soft butter Combine first 4 items with V 2 teaspoon salt; % teaspoon pepper and V 4 cup butter, and work into n paste. For each portion, make a "sandwich" of two small breasts or fold over one large one, skin side out, with some of the filling in the center. Tie with string or fasten with toothpicks. Rub both sides with additional butter and dust with salt and pepper. Refrigerate an hour or 'so. Grill the c h i c k e n on the foil, about 4-inches above good coals, Candy Always Brings Smiles to Young Faces By EDITH M. BARKER Just, the mention of the word "candy" brings smiles to the faces of almost all children. It Is always considered a treat and has survived the criticism heaped upon it as a cause of dental caries, the scientific name for tooth decay. There is little doubt, that our conception of candy in childhood is to be decried for more than one reason. II, may destroy appetites for regular meals when eaten between times. There is no reason, however, that it cannot serve as an occasional dessert if teeth arc brushed afterwards. Like almost all foods, there is a place for candy, but at the end of a meal, not a belween- meal snack. Certain types of candy are convenient for use in cooking. Candy will supply both sweetening power and flavor. Quick Fudge Sutico 1 cup (6-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips J 4cup light cream 3 tablespoons water Place chocolate chips in container of electric mixer. Bring light cream and water to a boil. Add to chips. Cover and blend at. high speed 1 minute. Makes 1 cup sauce. Chocolate Chiffon Pie 1 recipe Quick Fudge Sauce % cup sugar 1 envelope (1 tablespoon) unflavored gelatin • % teaspoon salt % cup hot milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 egg whites % cup whipping cream 9-inch graham cracker or chocolate cookie crumb crust Prepare fudge sauce and set aside. Place sugar, gelatin, and salt in container of electric mixer. Cover and blend at low speed 30 seconds. Add hot. milk, fudge sauce, and vanilla. Cover and blend at low speed 1 minute. Pour into a large bowl and cool until slightly thickened. (If mixture becomes set, beat just until smooth before using.) Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Beat the cream until it will hold sofe peaks. Fold cream into chocolate mixture; then fold in egg whites. Spoon into crust. Chill until firm — about 3 hours. Garnish with additional whipped cream, if desired. (© 1963. General Features Corp.) for about 45 minutes or until nicely done, turning from time to time. Cook the bacon on the foil, about 2% minutes to a side or until done as you like. Serve 2 slices of the bacon to each customer with a portion of chicken. OUTDOOR COOKING OF FROZEN VEGETABLES. This is a great idea. Use a large square of heavy duty aluminum foil of good size. Place an unwrapped package of a frozen vegetable (to serve 4 usually) in the center of the alum inum. Spread the frozen clock with butter, and dust with salt and pepper. Wrap up leaving a little room for expansion and steam, and fold over and crimp tightly. Let package stand for about 2 hours before cooking. Piace the packet on the grill over hot coals, turn occasionally s they cook, timing them as follows. Allow 20 minutes for green peas or peas and cai'rots; 30 minutes for asparagus spears; and 30 minutes for each of the following; lima beans (add 2 tablespoons water to the packet); Brussels sprouts or cauliflower (put 1 tablespoon lemon juice in the package); cut corn; spinach (add 1 teaspoon lemon juice and a dash of nutmeg); mixed vegetables (add 2 tablespoons water to the packet).. Allow 35 minutes for green beans and broccoli spears. Send YOUR favorite recipe and a stamped self-addressed envelope to this newspaper and become a life member of The Skillet Club.

Naming of Old Fashioned Shortcake Remains Mystery By EDITH M. BARBER Often we wonder how certain recipes were given their titles. For instance, there is shortcake with which we most often associate strawberries. Although one dictionary devotes more than half a page to defining the word "short," it fails to give us a clear definition of its use in an old- fashioned shortcake. It states that shortcake is always served with whipped cream. There are those among us who believe that plain cream is better. It also allows the base to be either a rich biscuit dough or a sweet cake. Sauerkraut is Quick Easy Dish to Prepare By EDITH M. BARKER It may be considered rather common today to confess to a fondness for sauerkraut. Yet there are many who thoroughly enjoy it, especially now that it comes in canned form and takes such a short lime to prepare, actually little more than heating. This is quite different from earlier days when a cask of sauerkraut was customarily made in early fall to supply an always- ready vegetable for use during the long winter season. It probably can be given the credit for saving many a life from scurvy or a milder form of malnutrition. This was, of course, long before the process of canning had been invented, and for winter use most vegetables must be dried or put down in salt and vinegar. Before it was served it needed a rather long cooking and this naturally caused the house to reek with this odor. Today we merely heat it and dress it according to our taste. We even use it as a relish, especially with frankfurters so popular for a picnic. CONFETTI KRAUT RELISH 3Va cups sauerkraut, drained % cup finely chopped onion 1 medium green pepper, chopped '/•> cup finely chopped celery 1 pimiento, diced 2 tablespoons vinegar 3 tablespoons brown sugar Salt and pepper to taste Combine all ingredients; m 1 x well. Chill thoroughly. Serve with frankfurters. SAUERKRAUT, RUSSIAN STYLE 3 cups sauerkraut % cup bacon fat or drippings 3 cups boiing water 2 tablespoons sugar Salt and pepper 1 cup sour cream Drain sauerkraut, add fat anri water, and simmer uncovered over low heat for 2 hours. Add more water if necessary. A d c sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. If canned sauerkraut is used, the time of cooking may be reduced to 1 hour. Add sour cream to cooked sauerkraut just before serving, Yield: (i servings. (© 10B3, General Features Corp.) There is no objection to a com- 1 bination of cake and fruit, even' strawberries, but many of us feel that this should be called a pudding or a strawberry dessert rathdr than a shortcake. Many of us like to have most of the strawberries sliced or crushed with sugar and allowed to stand awhile before the fruit is combined with the crust. SHORTCAKE DOUGH 3 cups sifted flour 4Vs teaspoons baking powder % teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar ¥2 cup shortening % cup milk (about) 2 tablespoons softened butter Mix and sift dry ingredients.

Put together with butter. Place on baking sheet and bake in hot oven (450 degrees) about 12 to 15 minutes. Yield: 6 servings. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE 1 quart strawberries Vi cup sugar 1 recipe shortcake Dough Wash berries, reserve 12 for garnish, and hull remainder.
