WHERE WOULD YOU FIND PARTY PUN EDITORIALS UNCLE EB SAYS i Mount Pulaski Times.News MOUNT PULASKI TIMES-NEWS jr " eo00ea, ,,! ..... PUblished and entered as second class matter in BY EUNICE LARKIN the postoillce at Mount Pulaski, Illinois, Nov. 17, Strawberries are getting inexpensive enough now that we can buy them by the crate and make them into delicious jelly and preserves. Everyone has her own pet strawberry preserve recipe, but in spite of that I am putting in a couple in my col- amn below. In making any particular preserve, it is well to bear in mind that cooking a small quantity of the fruit at a time is far better, will give you much nicer looking results, than cook- ing too much. Do not over-cook strawberry preserves. It is easily done, and then the re6ult is messy looking. In my opinion, sun preserves are the very nicest of all. They are a lithe more trouble, but the extra work of bringing in the berries every night and taking them out again the next morning is more thn repaid by the beautifully whole berries floating in a *hick, red syrup a.t the end. ** aic* SUNSHINE STRAWBERRIES 4 cups sugar 4 tablespoons white corn syrup cup.water 4 cups whole, firm strawberrie Boil sugar, syrup and water until it spins a thread. Add oerries and cook for 15 minutes. Skim berries out onto a large platter. Cover with the syrup. Expose all day to bright sun- shine, under a glass pane, so arranged that it does not touch the berries. Repeat sunshine treatment for 3 consecutive days. Put in sterilized glasses or ia and cover with paraffin and lid. When you break your pet string o beads, use dental floss or an old violin string to re-str}ng them. STRAWBERRY JELLY 2 quarts strawberries cup water 4 cups sugar cup bottled pectin Wash and hull strawberries, rejecting those which are poor or not ripe. Add the water and simmer slowly until soft. Strain through a jelly bag. Measure 2 cups'of the juice, add sugar and boil I minute: add pectin and boil I minute longer. Remove from heat and let stand I minute. Skim and turn into sterilized, hot jelly glasses. Cover at once with a thin layer of paraffin, then cover with a lid. STRAWBERRY JAM 2 quarts strawberries 4 cups sugar .,, 1A cup lemon juice Wash and hull strawberries. Cover with sugar and Jet stand 2 hours. Put in preserving kettle and let come slowly to boiling point. Let boil slowly for 10 minutes. Add lemon juice and simmer until thick, about t hour. Turn into sterilized jars or glasses. If glasses are used, cover with paraffin and lid when cool. Ra'spberry Jam may be made by the above recipe. Heat slightly the syrup which you intend to use over your Ilncakes and waffles. The werm syrup will not dll the hot cakes as will the cold syrup. Melted butter may be used for the same reason. FRESH STRAWBERRY PIE 1 cup sugar 3 teaspoons flour 3 cutm berries Dash of nulmleg and cinnamon Wash and hull strawberries. Mix fruit sugar and flour. Line pie plate with plain pastry. Fill with fruit, sprinkle spices. Cover with top crust. Cut holes in center of top crust to per- mit escaping of steam. Pinch two crusts firmly together and crimp edges. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 40 minutes. . You will find thlt a pair of embroidery hoops will come in very handily to keep material taut when remov- ing steins and spots from fabrics. FRESH STRAWBERRY SHERBET Press sufficient fresh strawberries through a sieve to make 2 cups of pulp. Add I cup sugar and juice of I lemon. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour 1 cups fresh milk in bowl: add the fruit mixture slowly, stirring constantly. Pour into freezing tray of automatic refrigerator and freeze to a mush. Remove from refrigerator and beat well with rotary beater. Continue freezing until firm but not hard. gBO, under the Act of Congress of March 9. 1879. i/ tii , (Joined with Mount Pulki News, August 1, 198Z) 41 i i i , HARRY J.
