April 15 until the first of July.
Filet de Veau. Lard

salt pork. Brown In but

until well browned, theYi,
lay tho larded side up.
Add one and a half cup
fuls of good stock, ono
cupful of tomato juice,
rind of a quarter of an orange, and a
seasoning of salt and pepper. Cover
and simmer gently for twenty minutes,
thon set the pan In the oven and cook
a half-hour to brown the meat. Serve
on a platter with cress or parsley at
the end. New potatoes and peae with
carrots make good vegetables to serve
with it, or to cook with It.
Veal suffers in reputation because
it Is often put on the market too
young. It should be at least six weeks
old before butchering, and if well
cooked and properly masticated is not
hard to digest. Veal, because of Its
gelatinous composition, slips down too
easily when being masticated, and so
often it is not well divided in the
mouth and consequently causes Intes
Veal also spoils quickly and in hot
weather should not be kept long.
Veal with a bluish tinge is not fit to
buy, it either indicates an undernour
ished animal or, more probably, too
young for the market.
When buying veal eelect only that
which is pinkish (ashes of roses); this
