"Season to taste"
That's the important thing in most recipes. When you can
do that wtlli you know much about cooking. Real season
ing brings back the plates for a second helping. It gives food
a taste that reminds you of the things "mother used to make."
There's a knack ia getting the flavor just right, of course,
but the better the spices, the easier it is. That's why
ire so popular with hundreds of housewives. They are
strong, pungent and pure. Always 10c a package at grocers'.
