                                                  HINTS FOR SOUPS AND STEWS

You can use instant potatoes instead of flour to thicken soups, stews, and gravies without lumps, Another excellent thickener for soup is a little oatmeal. It will add flavor and richness to almost any soup.

If soup has been over salted, add a teaspoonful of sugar or a few small pieces of raw turnip, and simmer a little longer. This will neutralize the salt flavor.

Grate a raw potato and add it to your soup when it is too salty. Or add a whole, raw potato and remove before serving. The potato absorbs the salt.

All seasonings should be added gradually to soup or the flavor may be too strong.

A little finely grated cheese added to thin soup improves the taste immensely.

Remember, soup boiled is soup spoiled. Soup should be cooked gently and slowly.

To prevent curdling of milk or cream in soup add the soup to the milk rather' than vice versa. Or add a bit of flour to the milk and beat well before combining.

Cream soups tend to boil over easily. Some cooks say that greasing the top edges of the cooking container will prevent this problem. One quart of soup yields about six servings, unless it is the main course.

Vegetables added to soup will make a much tastier dish if you sauté them first, preferably in a little butter.

A leaf of lettuce dropped into the pot absorbs the grease from the top of the soup. Remove the lettuce and throw it away as soon as it has served its purpose, or, float a piece of tissue paper lightly on top of the soup and it will absorb the grease.

Fat can be skimmed off soup by chilling soup until fat hardens. If time does not permit this; wrap ice in paper towering and skim ever the top.

Steak, roast or poultry bones can be frozen until needed for soup stock,

Always start cooking bones and meat in cold, salted water.

Instant soup stock will always be on hand if you save the pan juice from cooking meats. Pour the liquid into ice cube trays and freeze. Place solid cubes in freezer bags or foil.


AMANA GERMAN SOUP  March 1967 (book left out callers name)

Boil one ring of fresh pork sausage in 1½ quarts water along with one onion, cut-up.

Remove sausage from broth and dip ricer into hot broth. Then squeeze flour mixture into broth. Bring to a hard boil. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand. Heat again before serving. Sausage is served separately. (Mrs. Roy Setzer, South Amana, Iowa)

                                                          HELPFUL HINTS

Wrap your scouring past in a paper towel after use. The towel takes up the moisture and pad doesn't rust.

If you spill something on the inside of your oven, sprinkle salt on it as possible. Chances are, you'll be able to lift it out easily after the oven cools.

Have you ever tried polishing your silver with baking soda? It works and doesn't even scratch. Mix 3 parts soda to 1 part water, making a paste. Use a damp sponge or soft cloth and rub each piece until clean. Rinse and buff.

To remove black marks on tile floor; made by shoes, cover stains with a light coat of shortening, lard or margarine. Sprinkle with baking soda and wipe up with dampened sponge.

Place meat loaf on top of a slice of bacon while baking, and the loaf won't stick, to the pan.

Keep your summer salads cool. covered and out of direct sunlight. There is a, visual tip off to know when mayonnaise has gone bad. The oil separates. If your salad develops a shine or film on top, the mayonnaise has broken down. The salad, even if it tastes all right, should not be eaten.

To removal grease stains from your wooden cabinets, spray with an aerosol laundry starch. After it has dried. simply rub off the starch and stain with a soft cloth.

When you are baking layer cakes, put a pan of water on the bottom oven shelf. Cakes will bake more evenly and be heavenly moist.

To control the cabbage worms, sprinkle rye flour over and around the plants while they are covered with dew.

To rid the house of ants, mix equal parts of powdered sugar and powdered borax. Sprinkle along baseboards and in corners.

To keep lint from clinging to blue jeans and corduroys, add ½ cup. vinegar to each wash load.

Tape a small sponge on the inside of your garbage can cover and keep it saturated with a disinfectant. This will lessen odors and will also keep out insects.
