HOMEMADE VINEGAR

For pineapple vinegar, cover the parings and some of
the fruit, if you wish, with water. A stone crock or glass jar is the
best receptacle for this purpose. Add sugar or sirup, according to the
condition of the fruit, and set in the sun where it can ferment
thoroughly. Skim frequently to remove all impurities, and when as acid
as desired, strain and bottle. Gooseberry vinegar is made by crushing
gooseberries not quite ripe, covering with cold water (three quarts of
water to two of fruit) and allowing it to stand for two days. Press and
strain. Allow a pint of sugar and half a yeast cake to each gallon of
the liquid. Set in the sun, and when the fluid has worked clear, strain
and leave in a warm place until as sharp as desired. A cloth should be
tied over the top of the jar to keep out insects and dust.Famous Recipes

Salad Recipes

It is said that “Any fool can make a salad,” but all salads are not

made by fools. “Mixing” comes by intuition, and the successful cooks

use the ingredients, judgment, and their own tastes, rather than the

recipe.

Any number of salads and fillings for sandwiches for home use, teas or

receptions, can be made at little cost and trouble, by using the

following simple recipe for dressing. The secret of success of the

dressing lies in the mixing of the ingredients:

Powder the cold yolks of four hard boiled eggs; then stir in one

tablespoon even full of common mustard, one-half teaspoonful of salt,

and two heaping tablespoonfuls of pulverized sugar. When mixed

thoroughly, add three tablespoonfuls of good table oil, and stir

rapidly for three minutes; then add six tablespoonfuls of good, sharp

vinegar, and stir for five minutes. Now you will have dressing

sufficient for a dozen or fifteen plates of salad, and one that will

keep in a cool place for weeks.

Add to the above dressing just before serving, one pound of crisp

the thin slices of two or three small radishes.
