Cereal Breakfast Foods
From the beginning of civilization
people have realized the value of
ground grains cooked slowly with wa
ter, Porridge in some form is a
standard article of diet back through
the centuries; and our modern break
fast foods are direct descendants of
the more primitive porridges. Now,
as formerly, we grind the grain
though our methods are slightly more
modern. The ultra-modern or "ready-to-eat"
cereal represents merely one
more step after the grinding, namely
final preparation for the table. We
all appreciate the value of the wheat
grain as flour; but in these days of
simple breakfast we are apt to over
look the value of our ordinary cereals.
They contain all the foodstuffs in a
concentrated form, -they are easily
irepared, and they are cheap. As
ar as food value goes, there is a
striking similarity among the-different
kinds of grains. As was stated
in the talk on protein toods, an
forms of protein are not equally
nourishing, and the protein of corn-
meal is not as satisfactory as some
forms; however, in a mixed diet, corn
meal is very valuable because one gets
so much food value tor a very small
sum of money. Oatmeal leads in
amount of mineral matter, which is so
valuable. All of the grains contain
more mineral matter if the hull is
partly or entirely included in the
final product. ( .
In the purchase of cereals, we have
two problems. We must choose be
tween the cereal which requires long
cooking and the one which is ready
to serve; also we must choose whether
we will buy bulk cereal or package.
As to the first question, we pay less
money for a breakfast food which
requires cooking, and we obtain ' a
product which is possibly more easily
digested. With a tireless cooker, the
problem of the necessary long cook
ing i solved. We must however,
give credit to the "ready-to-eat"
cereal variety, ease of preparation
and, in general, more flavor. As to the
second question, we generally weigh
sanitation of th package against its

cost." Still it is only fair to admit that
any food cooked as long as cereal, is
thoroughly sterilized before it reaches
the table, no matter what its condi
tion before'eooking. In using package
goods it is cheaper to buy. a half
dozen or a dozen packages at one
time, if the size of the family and
the frequency of use of cereal war
rants laying in such a supply.
In preparing cereals, the .general
rules are as toltows: '
Two parts water to one part flaked
cereal, such as rolled oats.
Three or four parts water to one
part granulated cereal, such as cream
of wheat. -
One teaspoon salt to one quart wa
Shake cereal slowly into water
which is rapidly boiling. Use upper
part of double boiler over the direct
flame. Cook until mixture thickens,
then place vessel in lower part of
double boiler, which is halt filled
with boiling water. Cook at least
forty-five minutes, .so that starch
grains may be made more palatable
A pleasant variation is to add a few
washed and chopped raisins, dates or
figs to the cereal about five minutes
before serving. (
The uses of left-over cereal are
many and varied. In fact to my mind.
"lett-over cereal disnes are wormy
of special preparation. The simplest
use is to cut molded cold cereal into
inch slices, dredge with flour and
saute to a golden brown in a little fat.
Serve with syrup as a luncheon or sup
per dish, or it may be substituted
for potatoes or macaroni at dinner.
Cold cereal may be used to thicken
