the delicate flavor. Vegetables should
be cooked In as little water as pos
sible to keep from burning, and many
vegetables are better for being steam
ed. Cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels
sprouts, and other vegetables of the
cabbage family need plenty of water,
salted barely to taste, brought quick
ly to a boil and cooked uncovered un
til tender. Any scum which arises
should be dipped off.
If vegetables are old, or over
grown, they will need longer cook
ing than those that are young and
tender, and should not be cooked sep
arately. If not enough of the one
kind, put the older vegetables to boil
some time before adding the more
tender ones. This caution should be
observed with peas, string beans,
summer squash, okra, "shell beans,"
and like varieties. Potatoes should
be s'orted, the different sizes being
cooked separately, in order in insure
all being tender alike. If this sort
ing of vegetables is n,ot practiced
there will be some of them overdone
while others are underdone. Even
those of one size and stage of tender
ness should not be overcooked.
During the severe drouth, such as
we have been going through the past
several seasons, many vegetables will
grow slowly and be tough and taste
less. There is no way to remedy this
in cooking, though the careful cook
may be able to render them palat
able. Vegetable fibre, after it begins
to wilt, is never so palatable as when
cooked while fresh. While It is well
to freshen some kinds of vegetables
in water, it will not do to let them lie
long in the water, as more or less de
cay sets in under such circumstances.
Pouring boiling water. over veget
ables when prepared for cooking is
recommended; the boiling water
should be poured off immediately,
and a dash of cold water should fol
low. This is called blanching, and
is' claimed to improve the flavor and

M. M. If the meat has a "close"
smell, without being tainted, it may
be freshened by washing well in
strong soda and water, rubbing it
well into every fold; then wash it
over with fresh cold water the cold
er the better; leave in a weak salted
water for half an hour, wash again
with fresh water and wipe with a dry
clean cloth. It should be cooked at
orice after this process.
Mrs. L. S. asks how to fry gr.een
tomatoes. The tomato should be
well grown enough to be good flavor
ed, but not ripe; they should be solid.
Select smooth, solid fruit, and re
member that if they are already turn
ing red or yellow they have a
disagreeable acid flavor. Cut into
rather thick slices, dash boiling water
over the slices, then spread on a cloth
to dry; dip each slice in beaten egg,
then corn meal or cracker crumbs,
and drop into enough boiling fat to
keep them from sticking to the pan.
Lift before they become soft. ,The
fat must be hot, but must not scorch.

Mrs. K. C. When cucumbers be
gin to get old, they can be used in
many ways, as in catsup, pickles,
sweet or sour, or they may be cooked
and made into a cream salad. If you
will write to the Department of Agri
culture atid ask for printed matter
on the subject asked about, you will
get a lot of good information. If
you save these bulletins, they will
form a valuable library in time. Send
your name on a postal, and the name
of the subject on which you want in
formation. E e. A foundation for water ices
