PAGE TElf BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, JULY 15- 1954 Dairy Foods Provide Necessary Calcium. By CECILY BROWNSTOXE Associated Press Food Editor THERE'S REASON A-PLENTY for serving your family milk and other dairy foods. But most important of all, too many families are short on the important nutrient—calcium—that we rely on milk to supply. No matter what your age, you need calcium for healthy bones. Children should have three t four cups of milk a day: grownups should have two or more cups. These recommended quantities are based largely on our requirements for calcium plus ribo-1 flavin. I Serve milk soups often this j month, making the soup with aj quart of milk for four servings. So easy to prepare! Just stir together a 'thin white sauce using two tablespoons of butter or margarine and two tablespoons of flour for the four cups of milk- Then stir in grated raw or sieved cooked ve- getabls and season with salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste. Some days add baby-food vegetables that come in handy jars or cans; we like to combine them— peas and carrots, for instance. And one more hint: We think these milk soups need finely choped onions or scallions or onion juice added for best flavor; sometimes too, we add a dash of celery salt or Worcestershire sauce. Readers "sometimes ask us 'how to produce a cream of tomato soup that is not likely to curdle. One way is to stir the warm tomatoes into the warm seasoned white sauce —not the sauce into the tomatoes. Then heat the combination just until serving temperature—no more. This soup should be served at once. quaters vanilla ice cream (soft), 1 pint strawberry ice cream. METHOD: Crush strawberries and press through coarse sieve; there should be about 4*2 cups puree- Mix with sugar, salt and lemon juice. Blend in milk and cream, then vanilla ice cream. Pour into punch bowl. Garnish with spoonfuls of strawberry ice cream. Makes 25 servings. Two Cincinnati Recipes Listed Mustard Improves Cucumbers Served In Sour Cream It's important to care for milk properly after it is in your home- Rinse the milk container under running water and dry with a clean j cloth before you put it into the refrigerator—and do this at once. Milk should never stand around in a warm kitchen. See that the milk is tightly covered so it will not absorb the flavors of other foods. If you bring a pitcher of milk to the table andit is not all used, do not milx it with other milk when you refrigerate it again. Never try to eave refrigerator space by dumping a small amount of milk from one container into another that contains fresher milk. Don't forget cheese during June —or after. We produce some wonderful cheese in this country and it can do a lot to pep up meals. A little grated yellow cheese added to a milk soup is tops. Add the cheese at the last minute, keep the teznperature low and heat only until the cheese melts; then you'll have smooth results. Cheese toppings for casseroles not only look golden-brown and appetizing but add zip. Sprinkle the cheese over the casserole after it is baked, if you- like, and run under the broil- «r. A tray of assorted cheese with summer fruits makes both a nutritious and epicurean dessert. Or serve a fruit and cheese compote. We like strawberries for this, heated in a sugar syrup, then topped with tiny squares of velvety cream cheese. Sugared raspberries toped with the cream-cheese squares are super, too. For party fare during June there is nothing more appropriate or delectable than strawberries teamed •with milk, cream and ice cream. So why not a glorious punch? Our receipe serves 25. Put this divine concoction in your best punch bowl and fasten three of four June roses, using cellophane tape, over the rim of the bowl. There's a summer offering—lovely to look at, wondr- ful to taste!
