PREFACE

TN this day of the mounting cost of living, the problem is to so
A spend the dollar as to bring the best results. The complex
demands of modern life are a challenge to the intelligence and
foresight of the college-bred woman to use her budget so as to
provide her family with the most adequate diet obtainable. It is
her duty to build up the physical and the nerve force of the
new generation, to build up resistance to fatigue and to disease.
Thanks to scientific research, we have learned that calories
alone do not build up energy, that unless certain properties
known as vitamines are present in the food, force is lacking.
Indeed, the role of vitamines in the body has been compared to
that 01 cement to bricks or stones in a house. At present, three
vitamine elements have been isolated. They are known as fat
soluble A the anti-ricketic, found in animal fats, especially in
milk, thus an indispensable factor in early life; water-soluble B,
the anti-neuritic, found in the germ of cereal seeds, in the eggs
of animals and in the cellular organs such as the liver; and C,
the anti-scorbutic, found in the juices of fruits, especially in
lemons and oranges, also in most vegetables. Unfortunately,
this property is partially destroyed by high temperatures such as
those used in canning. This anti-scorbutic vitamine is impor-
tant in helping the body to utilize the minerals, especially calcium.
Indeed, the leafy vegetables, such as spinach, cabbage, and let-
tuce, supply in largest amounts the vitamine necessary to promote
growth, protect against disease, and give vitality; they give the
ability to use the calories supplied by cream, sugar, and cereals,
tor instance, the daily consumption of a quart of milk, egg yolk,
leafy vegetables, and fruits with certain calories, would furnish
a well-balanced diet. In order to make it possible for the users
of the cook book to balance their diet, we are furnishing a table
of vitamines found in the commoner foods, as well as a table of
calories.

while boil the celery which has been cut into strips, drain the
water into the chestnut stock, add the soup stock and combine
with the heated milk. It is best to whip the cream and add to the
soup when serving, with a dash of paprika on top, but cream that
is not thick enough to whip may be added to the soup. The milk
should be heated in a double boiler and the soup should be cooked
till it is very hot. Some people prefer to thicken the soup with a
teaspoon of butter rubbed together with a teaspoon of flour and
added to the hot mixture. If bouillon cups are used this amount
will serve six persons.

MEATS AND FISH

General Rules for Meat :

Meat when it comes from market should be removed at once
from paper in which it is wrapped, weighed, put in cold place
until used. Before cooking it should be trimmed if necessary, and
wiped with damp cloth.

Only tender cuts of meat should be broiled, pan broiled or
roasted. When meat is to be cooked by any of these methods, it is
to be first seared then the temperature slightly lowered. By sear-
ing the albumin the outside of the meat is hardened and the meat
is cooked in its own juices.

For roasts of beef weighing less than eight pounds, allow ten
minutes to the pound and ten minutes extra. From eight to
twelve pounds allow twelve minutes to the pound and twelve
minutes extra. Over twelve pounds allow fifteen minutes to the
pound and fifteen minutes extra.

For roasting mutton or lamb allow twenty minutes to twenty-
five minutes for each pound and twenty minutes extra. Baste
every fifteen minutes. For roasting veal or pork, allow twenty-
five to thirty minutes for each pound and twenty-five minutes
extra. Baste every fifteen minutes.

Ruth Wallis Wagner, Chi Alpha.
