the milk; beat thoroughly, and stir
in the well beaten whites; pour. at
onco into twelve greased gem pans
or muffin rings, and bake in a quick
oven for twenty minutes.
Cream Biscuit One cup of sweet
cream, two cups of sweet milk, one
rounding teaspoonful of salt, and two
heaping teaspoonfuls of baking pow
der sifted with flour enough to make
a rather soft dough, and stir quickly.
With a large spoon, dipped in cold
water, dip up the soft dough (or very
stiff batter), and drop in a well
greased biscuit- pan and bake in
quick oven. Sour milk and cream,
with baking soda will answer, and
some like it better. The dough
should be soft enough to handle well,
but do' not handle dough any more
than you can help. It may be patted
out with the hand and cut as
Pineapple Honey Wash the pine
apple before peeling, then pare and
save the peel; put this and the core
into two cupful s of water, to each
pineapple used, and leave for some
hours. Then put it on the stove and
bring to a boil; strain through a
cloth when soft, and add to the water
three cups of sugar to each pine
apple. Bring to a boil again, and let
boil ten minutes. It should be very
thick and a clear amber color; turn
the syrup into a jar, cover well and
keep in a cool place.
Pineapple Ambrosia Peel a pine
apple and cut into small pieces and
lay in a glass dish; sprinkle with
sugar and squeeze over it a juicy
orange; then strew over with dessi
cated cocoanut, and repeat this layer
until the dish is fiill. Pour over all
a small cupful of the syrup of pre
served strawberries or cherries, cover
with cocoanut and let stand for two
or three" hours before- serving; The
peel and cores' of 'the pineapple may
be used as above.
Keeping Hams
Mrs. B. G., of California, tells us:
"When taking hams out of the salt,
have a large kettle and set it ovei a
fire. Fill over half full of water, put
into it about twenty cents worth of
red pepper, and let come to a boil, do
not keep boiling. Have the ham
with twine in the end ready for hang
ing up, and holding by the twine, dip
into the pepper tea. Have a large
scrubbing brush, and scrub well all
over the ham, and then hang it in the
smoke house to dry for a few days.
Then smoke, if you like. It can hang
in the smoke house until warm
weather, then it should be hung in a
cool, dark, dry place. For us, they
keep fine."
Making Con'eo
Very few people will refuse a cup
of well-made coffee but there are few
indeed who will take with relish a
poorly made cup of the same. Yet
there are thousands of families who
do not know what really well-made
coffee is like. In the first place the
coffee pot should be clean not only
emptied and rinsed out, but thor
oughly cleaned, as you would wash
any other cooking vessel. The kettle
in which the coffee water is cooked
should be clean, also, and the water
should be freshly drawn and just at
the point of boiling when poured over
the coffee grounds. If you use the
ordinary coffee pot, the freshly
ground coffee should be put into the
clean pot, and the freshly drawn, just
at the point of boiling, water from a
clean teakettle, should be poured over
the grounds, the pot covered and set
where the water will keep just at the
point of boiling, but not allowed to
boil, for five to ten minutes before
Using. An infusion made moderate
ly strong, using,, if finely ground, one
leaping teaspoonful of coffee to each
cup of water and one for the pot; if
coarsely ground, a tablespoonful to
