Meats.

Meat U,ules. —When cutting- meat to cook
always cut across the grain of the muscle. Never
wash fresh meat; scrape it if necessary, or wipe
it with a damp cloth, but never put it in water,
nor directly on the ice; put in a vessel on the ice.
If you baste roast meat, do not use salt in the
basting. Never salt meat before it is cooked;
wait until it is partly done. In boiling put fresh
meats in hot water and salt meats in cold water.
Never salt and pepper broiling meats while cook-
ing, season with salt, pepper and butter after re-
moving from tlie gridiron. If you have no grid-
ii'on you will find a "pan broil" very nice. (See
"Directions and Explanations.") Put a little sugar in
the water used for basting all kinds of meat. It im-
proves the flavor, especially veal.

In cooking tuough fowls or.^ meats, one table-
spoonful of vinegar in the water will save nearly
two hours Ijoiling.

Meats and their R-elishes,— with roast
beef, use a relish of Worcestershire sauce, to-
mato catsup or grated horse radish. Roast pork,
apple sauce; roast veal, Tomato sauce or Mushroom
sauce; Roast Mutton, currant jelly; Boiled Mutton,
caper sauce; Roast Lamb, mint sauce, or a sauce of
stewed gooseberries; Broiled Steak, fried onions,
mushrooms or Saratoga chips.

Pot lioast.— A large kitchen spoonful of lard
heated to the boiling point, in a kettle or pot,
one scant tabtespoonful of flour, browned well in
the lard; then put in the roast, well salted and
peppered, and allow it to brown quickly on both
sides; then add one onion sliced; a bit of garlic
mashed to a pulp; when the onion becomes soft
and transparent, pour on enough boiling water to



26

almost cover the roast, and let it cook on top of
the stove until done. If the gravy cooks down
before the roast is done, add boiling water. The
roast will be juicy and* tender and you vvill have

delicious brown gravy. — Mrs. ira Eddlsman.

Spiced Beef.— Four pounds round of beef
chopped fine; take from it ail fat, add to it three
dozen small crackers rolled fine, four eggs, one
cupful of milk; one tablespoonful ground mace,
two tablespoonfuls black pepper, one tablespoon-
ful melted butter; mix well and put in any pan that
it will just fill, packing it well. Baste with butter
and water and bake tu^o hours in a slow oven. —

iMrs. Arthur Anderson.

Baked ilasl'i. — a slice of ham one inch
thick, sugar it and dredge with flour; cover it with
shces of tomatoes, dredge this again with fiour,
pepper and bake slowly, two hours in a covered

dish. — Mrs. E. li Linn.

Broiled Biicon in |he Ovc^ii,— Try broil-
ing bacon in the oven sometime, and sigh that you
have not done sooner. The oven must be very
hot and the bacon shut in a folding broiler and
over a roasting pan. Turn, to brown lightly on
each side, as you would in turning over coals, and
it will come out perfectly cooked, without grease,
and just the proper degree of crispness. — Mrs. Edgar

M. Biake.

To Cure liann.-Nine pounds of salt;
four ounces saltpeter; one pound salei'atus (or soda) ;

meat. — iS. K. Bcardslee.

with salt, pepper and mixed ground spices (table-
spoonful of each.) Cover same with vinegar and

time to time baste with the seasoned vinegar, and
when meat is nearly done, add the rem.ainder of
the seasoned vinegar and serve hot— Mrs. Eirzab«th

Baked CalFs Meart.— Wash off the blood,
do not soak it, as the water extracts the Havor. Stuff
it with a stuffing made of coarse bread crumbs, sea-
soned with butter, salt and pepper, and a little, thyme,
onion or sage. Put the stuffing in a crock and pour
over it, enough hot vv'^ater to soften the crumbs. Cover
tightly and let stand until soft. Then stuff the heart.

heart to keep the stuffing in. Put into a sm.all baking
pan^ with a little hot water, pepper and salt Bake

sired quantity of gravy, and thicken. Season with salt

tablespoonfi^ls bread crumbs; one onion; half teaspoon-
ful chopped sage; half a teaspoonful salt;half teaspoon-
ful pepper; one ounce of chopped suet; one tablespoon-
ful drippings; separate each joint of the loin with a
chopper and then make an incision with a knife into
the thick part of the pork in which to put the stuffing.
Prepare the stuffing by mixing the bread crumbs to-
gether with the onion, which must be chopped; add to
this the sage, pepper, salt and suet, mixed thoroughly.
Press the mixture snugly into the incision, grease a
sheet of kitchen paper v,'ith drippings, place the loin
into this, securing it with a wrapping of twine. Put it

chops, season with salt and pepper, and put them into
melted butter. When sufficiently soaked put them into
beaten eggs, take them out and roll each separately in
bread crumbs. Make the chops as round as you can
with your hand and lay them in a dish. When all are
breaded, broil them slowly over a moderate fire, that
the bread may not be too highly colored. Serve with

clear gravy. — M rs. Claudo Davis.
