(To Second Edition) 

This little book, gotten out originally for a philanthropic 
object, has served its purpose, and has proven a success. 

The first edition has long since been exhausted, yet the 
demand for the book has been so widespread and its re- 
ception so cordial that it has seemed best for those who were 
largely responsible for its inception to reproduce it. It has 
been revised and improved, many new things having 
been added to it. We hope it will meet with the same 
favor as did its predecessor.

Poultry and Meats 

"Some hae meat and carina eat, 
Some hae no teeth to chank it; 
But we hae meat and we can eat, 
An J so the Lord be thank it." 


One cannot be too careful in selecting, preparing and 
baking a turkey. For a large turkey, the male bird about a 
year old is best. For a turkey of about 8 lbs. select the 
female. In dressing a turkey remove the pin feathers under 
the skin with a sharp knife, being careful not to break the 
skin. Singe carefully. Remove the giblets, superfluous fat 
and other parts inside the bird. Wash inside and out. Wipe 
dry with a soft cloth. Clean the giblets. The fowl is now 
ready for the stuffing. 


Put the giblets in a skillet with water to cover. Cook 
tender, remove from the liquor, cool and chop fine. For a 
large turkey, add to the liquor J cup of butter, 1 medium 
sized onion chopped fine, salt and pepper to taste and the 
giblets. Heat the mixture. Chop dry bread not too fine. 
Mix the seasoned liquor thoroughly with the bread and a 
little sage. If not moist enough add a little hot water. The 
secret of good stuffing is not to make it too moist. When 
the turkey is carved, the stuffing should roll out lightly. A 
pt. of oysters may be added to the stuffing. The above 
recipe may be used for other fowl. For chicken leave out 
the onion and add more sage. For duck and goose add more 
onion and leave out the sage. 



Fill the turkey with stuffing. Do not pack it, although 
the neck may be stuffed to the very tip. Tie a string 
around the skin near the tip and turn back. Sew the turkey 
up. Cover each leg with three thin slices of bacon. Fasten 
on with small skewers or toothpicks. Wrap each leg with a 
soft cloth and sew on. Press the legs to the back and tie 
with a string around the bird. This will make the legs as 
juicy and tender as any part of the fowl. Tie the wings 
closely to the breast. Put the turkey in a roasting pan. 
Slide into a hot oven. Leave the cover off until the fowl is 
thoroughly heated and colored a delicate brown. Then baste 
with hot salted water which contains a little melted butter. 
Cool the oven to a moderate temperature. Roast the bird 
from three to five hours with the cover on the pan, basting 
frequently and just using enough water to make a steam. 

Mrs. Charles H. Burwell.

Mix the flour, water, a little pepper and salt together, pour 
it in, and let the whole stew for about f of an hour. Take 
up the meat, removing the string; pour the gravy over it.

and half lard. Mix § butter with flour. Use enough 
water to make dough not too soft. Then roll out and 
spread with a part of the remaining butter. Fold and 
roll again. Proceed in this manner till all the butter is 
used. Beating with rolling pin after each folding improves 
the dough. Roll out | inch thick for lower crust. Line a 
dripping pan. Put in a layer of meat. Cover with chopped 
onion and parsley, then cover with a layer of dough not as 
thick as the lower crust. Put on another layer of meat and

Wash carefully 8 lbs. of beef plate. Put in a kettle. 
Cover with boiling water to retain the juices. Boil for a 
minute and skim. Add a few whole cloves. Set back on 
stove, slowly simmer until thoroughly cooked. That is, so 
tender until the meat drops to pieces. Remove from the 
stove. Let stand until cool enough to be handled. Take 
the meat from the liquor and take out the bone, gristle and 
tough white part. Separate, with the fingers, the meat into 
small pieces. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Press 
into a mold. Let stand over night in a cold place. The 
lean, fat and liquor should be in such proportion that the 
meat will slice without crumbling. A shoulder of veal 
may be used, or veal and beef together is delicious. Never 
boil. "Meat boiled is meat spoiled." 

Mrs. Charles H. Burwell. 

2 eggs; 1 cup milk; 1 cup flour; a little salt. Mix and 
sift salt and flour; add the milk gradually to make a smooth 
batter. Beat egg light and add to batter; beat well; bake 
in gem pans for 35 minutes. Baste with drippings from beef 
after they are well risen. If preferred, batter may be poured 
in roasting pan and baked with roast on rack above it; in 
this way will baste itself. Serve cut in squares with the 


Individual tenderloin cut in small pieces; cut pocket in 
each; stuff with dressing and roast § hour. Take red apples, 
core and quarter without peeling; roll apples in plenty of 
granulated sugar that has a little cinnamon in. Lay on top

before time for serving. When roast is cooked take out of 
kettle and add enough water to the kettle to make sufficient 
amount of gravy; thicken with 3 tbs. of flour mixed smoothly 
in water. Boil gravy for about 5 minutes, then strain. It 
is very appetizing to boil with the meat some carrots sliced

Place fillet on vegetables, or on a meat rack; season with 
salt and pepper and bits of butter. Dissolve 1 tsp. salt in 
\ cup boiling water, and pour into pan. Bake in a hot 
oven 30 or 40 minutes. Baste frequently. A mushroom 
sauce may be served with a fillet, or a brown gravy may be 

\ lb. of bacon and 2 lbs. of veal steak. Fry bacon and 
take out. Dip veal in egg and cracker crumbs, and brown; 
then pour boiling water over, enough to cover meat, placing 
cover over spider, and let slowly simmer until meat is tender 
and water has boiled down to form a gravy. This will take 
about one hour. Then remove, put meat on a platter and 
pour gravy over and garnish with bacon. 

Mrs. George H. Rentz. 

1 tbs. butter; 1 tbs. flour; 1 cup milk; 1 egg; 1 saltspoon 
pepper; \ lb. smoked beef. Have beef sliced very thin. 
Pour boiling water on it. Let stand ten minutes in order 
that it may taste less of salt. Melt butter, add the flour, 
then hot milk gradually, then the seasoning. Beat egg and 
add sauce to it gradually. Drain water from meat and heat 
it in tbs. butter until the edges curl up. Drain butter from 
it and pour sauce over meat. Serve at once or it is likely 
to curdle. Instead of the sauce 1 cup cream may be added 
to the beef after it is cooked. Mrs. W.J. Moorhead. 


Wipe and remove bone, skin and tough membranes. 
Cover the bone and tough pieces of meat with cold water 
and cook at a low temperature. This stock may be used 
in the sauce. Season the veal with salt and pepper. Roll 
in fine bread crumbs; dip in beaten egg; then in crumbs 
again. Use wooden skewers to hold cutlets together. Melt

a piece of sheet iron under it so as not to have it come in 
contact with the flame, add J pt. cream and thicken for 
gravy. Mrs. Quinby.

First have stew kettle on with 2 cans of strained toma- 
toes seasoned well with salt, pepper, and butter. Trim off 
all fat and sinews from a slice of round steak. Put the fat 
into a frying pan and let fry out. Remove the scraps from 
pan and keep the fat hot. Cut the steak into small pieces 
and throw into hot fat. Slice then 1 large or 2 small onions

11 Man does not live by bread alone." — Deuteronomy. 


Soak a qt. of small white beans over night in cold water. 
Pour off all the water, cover with fresh and pour off again. 
Put over the fire with enough fresh water to cover 
the beans and J saltspoon of soda. When the water begins 
to boil pour it off at once and put the beans in a colander. 
Allow fresh cold water to run through them, rinsing them 
thoroughly. This gives them the firmness which keeps 
them from getting " mushy. " Lay a very thin slice of salt 
pork in the bottom of the bean pot. Put a whole small onion 
on pork and pour in the beans. Take § lb. of salt pork, score 
the rind every ^ inch and press into the beans, allowing just 
the rind to show. Add a tsp. of salt unless the pork is very 
salty. If it is only add J tsp. Add a saltspoon of ground 
mustard and 2 lbs. of molasses, more if beans are liked 
quite sweet. Cover with cold water, set in slow oven and 
bake from 8 to 10 hours, having a slow, steady beat. As 
the water boils off add more, but be sure it is boiling and do 
not add water within an hour of serving. They will be a

Bread and Rolls 

"Bread is the staff of life." 
Dissolve 1 cake of yeast foam in a pt. of lukewarm 
water. Add sufficient flour to make a thin batter. Beat 
hard for 5 minutes. Cover and set in a warm place to 
raise. In summer about 2 hours, in winter a little longer. 
Sift 1J qts. of flour into a bread pan. Scald 1 qt. of milk. 
When cooled to luke warm, add a tsp. of salt and pour 
over the flour. Add the sponge batter and beat with a 
heavy cake spoon for about 10 minutes. If necessary, 
add more flour to make a stiff dough. Put on a floured 
bread board and knead until the dough is elastic and glis- 
tening. Put the dough in a pan, cover and set in a warm 
place to rise over night. No flour should be added after 
the kneading. Early in the morning, grease the hands 
with butter and gently knead down. Raise; before very 
light, cut into 1 lb. pieces, shape into loaves and put in 
single tins. Raise again until loaves are almost double in 
size. Put in a moderate oven and bake from f to 1 hour. 
The success of good bread making depends, upon keeping 
the temperature of the dough moderate. If it is allowed 
to become too hot or too cold, the bread is spoiled. The 
flour should be sifted thoroughly to allow the air to mix 
through the flour. Always sift before measuring.

"Beware of the warning 
Lest your cake be dough." 


In selecting the material be sure to get the winter wheat 
flour, known to the trade as pastry flour, for while spring 
wheat flour is the best for bread, it is impossible to have per- 
fect success, especially with the more delicate cakes, when 
this is used. For Angel, Sunshine and all Sponge Cakes 
sift flour three or four times before measuring in order to 
lighten it. When baking powder is used sift flour once, then 
measure, add baking powder and sift until thoroughly 
mixed. When cream of tartar and soda is used instead of 
baking powder, add the cream of tartar to the egg when half 
beaten and the soda to the flour, in the same way as baking 
powder is used. Always add the cream of tartar to the 
whites of eggs when making cake containing both whites 
and yolks, but beaten separate. When substituting cream of 
tartar and soda for baking powder, use in the proportion of 
1 tsp. of cream of tartar and a scant half tsp. of soda to 2 
tsp. of baking powder which is the required amount for any 
cake of ordinary size. 

Granulated sugar is the best although some have failed 
by using it since it is heavier than the soft sugars, it re- 
quires 1-5 less to give the same result. Sugar should be 
sifted once to take out any lumps of foreign matter. 

Eggs should be fresh and cold. It is immaterial as to 
the kind of beater used in beating the yolks, only that 
they are beaten thoroughly to a quick froth. Very few 
take the time to beat them as they should be and conse- 
quently the cake is heavy and has the strong taste of the

makes six to eight dollars' worth of cakes. Its 
use insures you against cake failures and the 
loss of the other valuable ingredients used 



eggs which would not be the case were the yolks thoroughly 
beaten. Rotary beaters do not fill the air cells but toughen 
the egg; therefore the cake will not raise to the required 
lightness and will be tough. Especially is this true in Angel, 
Sunshine or Sponge Cake. 

To cream butter and sugar, especially when the butter 
is hard, warm the sugar slightly, this will soften the butter 
without melting it and will save time and labor. 

In mixing cakes there are two rules which are very im- 
portant and should be remembered. The first applies 
to cakes containing butter and milk; they should be stirred 
or beaten thoroughly, especially after the flour is added. 
The second applies to Sponge Cakes and includes all cakes 
that do not contain butter or milk; these should never be 
stirred, but sugar and other ingredients beaten in being 
careful to beat up to keep the batter light, and the flour 
should be added last and folded lightly through, being careful 
not to overdo this for every stroke of the spoon after the 
flour is added tends to toughen the batter. This is one 
cause of so many tough sponge cakes. All cakes should be 
baked in ungreased molds, and all the loaf cakes excepting 
those containing fruit or nuts, should be inverted and allowed 
to hang in the mold to cool, which is the only way known to 
keep them from settling. In this way cakes do not require 
as much flour or to be made as stiff as in the old way and are 
far more delicate. 

The last important part is the baking which with a 
little care can be easily mastered. The rule is to allow 
the cake to raise to the desired lightness before browning 
over, then increase the heat and bake as fast as possible 
without burning; therefore the lighter the batter, when put 
into the oven the hotter the oven can be.

For many years, the common plant, Alfalfa, has been 
propagated for its highly nutritious properties as a stock 
food. Its further value as a human food was not known until 
about three years ago when Mark C. Rich and F. W. Bower, 
residing in the Black Hills of Western South Dakota, in their 
own families, discovered its human food elements. A series 
of experiments was carried on by these men to find the best 
methods of growing, cutting and curing the plant for its new 
use. In the past three years, it has been thoroughly tried 
out by the best food experts in the land for its food qualities 
and by many of the best known physicians for its medicinal 

These experiments, together with many chemical analyses 
of the different manufactured products, proved satisfactorily 
that the original discoveries had great value. The Alfalfa 
Foods and Medicine Company, of Minneapolis, which was 
organized later by these two men, is the first organization 
to manufacture a full line of these human foods (drinks) and 
medicines from Alfalfa. They are delicious and beneficial 
to the health and have a distinct taste and flavor. They 
are more nutritious than any other food. 

The Alfa-Lusa extract for flavoring soda drinks, ice 
cream, cakes, candies, etc., is delicious, healthful and popular. 
The table syrup resembles maple in taste and is a very 
healthful syrup. The candies flavored with this extract, are 
excellent for children because the alfalfa partly breaks up 
the sugar granules and assists in digesting the candy. 

The flour and other products for making bread and pastry 
are in a class by themselves. 

The Alfalfa tea and coffee is being used constantly by all 
who have heard of it because of their flavor and beneficial 
qualities. When used for a short time, the skin becomes 
clearer, and " tired feeling is chased away." Any of the 
Alfalfa human foods will produce natural sleep and will 
adjust the body for health.

4 sq. Baker's chocolate, 4 tsp. sugar, 4 cups milk. Put 
the chocolate in a small kettle and melt. Add the sugar 
and mix well. Then put in the milk heated. Let the 
mixture come to a boil, stirring all the time with an 
egg beater. Put 1 tsp. whipped cream in a cup. Pour over 
the hot chocolate and serve. This mixture is not injured by 
standing. If it becomes cold reheat and stir with the beater. 

Louise Burwell. 

8 cups cold water, 8 tsp. sugar, juice 4 lemons, 1 pt. 
ginger ale. Mix the lemon juice and sugar thoroughly, add 
the water and chill. Just before serving pour in the ginger 
ale and add cracked ice. For this beverage the lemonade 
should not be too sweet. Mrs. O. K. Earle. 


5 cakes Yeast, 3 tbs. sugar, 1 pt. lukewarm water, 1 
bottle Root Beer Extract, 5 gal. pure fresh water, slightly 
lukewarm, 4 lbs. sugar. Dissolve 5 cakes of Yeast and 3 tbs. 
sugar in a pt. of lukewarm water. Keep in a warm place 
for 12 hours, then stir well and strain through cheese-cloth. 
Add bottle of Root Beer Extract, 4 lbs. sugar and 5 gals, 
of lukewarm water. Mix thoroughly and bottle. (Tie or 
fasten in corks.) Keep in warm place about 48 hours. 
After cooling it is ready for use. Keep in cellar or place of 
low temperature. 



4 tsp. black tea, 4 cups cold water. Stir into the water 
the tea. Let stand 5 or 6 hours. Strain and serve in glasses 
with sugar, lemon and cracked ice. This is an excellent 
way to make tea for picnics. The tea, water and sugar may- 
be put in glass jar sealed and carried with a lunch. 

Mrs. Charles H. Burwell. 


4 qts. dandelion flowers, 4 qts. water, grated rind of 2 
oranges, grated rind of 1 lemon. Boil 20 minutes, strain 
and to the juice add 3J lbs. granulated sugar, let cool, and 
when lukewarm add \ cake of yeast, slice in the 2 oranges, 
without any seeds. Let stand 3 or 4 days, then bottle but 
do not cork tight. Mrs. William Gawne. 

Boil 3 cups sugar and 1 cup water until it strings from 
the tip of a spoon. Pour this syrup upon the beaten whites 
of 3 eggs and beat to a smooth cream. To this add a can 
of grated pineapple and as much cream and milk as will 
make the quantity you require. Let it get cold and freeze. 

Percy (Louisville, Ky.). 

Steep dandelion flowers in boiling water for ten minutes 
and strain off the liquid, pressing hard through a cheese-cloth 
bag. Sweeten to taste and add brandy in the proportion of a 
pint to every four gallons of liquid. Put into uncorked 
bottles and keep in a cool place, covering the mouths of the 
bottles with mosquito netting to exclude insects and dust. 
When fermentation ceases, draw off, strain and bottle. 


Pick grapes off stems (Concord are best) just cover with 
cold water, let boil until skins come off, strain through 
flannel bag. Add 1 cup sugar to 1 qt. juice. Let boil and 
seal hot. Mrs. R. W Cranston. 


Is made of the blossom of the plant, and exactly as dan- 
delion wine is made, or you may brew it of the berries, as 
you would cherry wine or that made from currants. This is 
highly medicinal and less pleasant of flavor than that made 
from the blossoms. 

Squeeze the juice from a can of grated pineapple, 6 
lemons and 3 oranges. Strain all together into a bowl. 
Add a pt. jar of preserved cherries and 1 of strawberries. 
Sweeten to taste and let stand 3 hours. When ready to 
serve add 2 qts. of ice water and a qt. of pounded ice. Serve 
in glasses. You may add a bottle of good claret. Apolli- 
naris may be substituted for water. Mrs. T. F. Quinby. 


Boil a pt. of sugar and 2 qts. of water for 10 minutes 
and set away to cool, for lemonade is always better when 
sugar and water is boiled in a syrup. To this add § pt. of 
lemon juice, 1 pt. of strawberry juice, and small pineapple 
grated or 1 can of grated pineapple. When ready to serve 
put in a little cracked ice, some whole strawberries and slices 
of lemon. Some red cherries may be substituted for straw- 
berries if you desire. Mrs. William Moorhead. 


3 grapefruits, 2 bananas, J lb. of Malaga grapes, 1 tbs. 
preserved ginger, minced fine, 2 doz. maraschino cherries, 
powdered sugar to taste, 1 cup of sherry. Cut the pulp of 
the grapefruits into small pieces, bruising as little as possible. 
Skin the grapes carefully and cut each in half, extracting the 
seeds. Peel and cut the bananas into cubes. With a silver 
fork mix in all the ingredients except the cherries. Fill 
chilled glasses with the mixture, put 3 cherries upon the top 
of each and set in cracked ice until you are ready to serve. 
Then sprinkle with sugar and pour a tsp. of sherry upon 
the sugar. It will wash the sugar into the heart of the 


This is arranged in the glasses from which it is to be 
eaten. Put into the bottom of each glass 3 fresh straw- 
berries, \ tsp. grated pineapple, a tsp. each of orange and 
grapefruit pulp, a tsp. lemon juice, § as much syrup from 
preserved ginger, 6 ripe raspberries or a tsp. raspberry juice, 
and sift powdered sugar over all. Finally lay 3 maraschino 
cherries on the top of each portion. Fill glasses, set in 
crushed ice until you are ready to serve. 

Wash the stalks of rhubarb well and cut into bits, letting 
each piece fall into cold water as you cut it off. Add no 
water, but put the rhubarb, dripping wet, into a double 
boiler and set in the outer vessel filled with cold water. 
Cover closely and bring to a boil. When soft and broken, 
strain through a cheese-cloth bag and measure the juice. 
Add as much water as you have juice, sweeten to taste and 
allow a cup of brandy to each gallon of liquid. Bottle and 
seal. Stand the bottles upside down in sand. 


6 tsp. tea, 1 qt. water. Steep, strain and cool. \ cup 
granulated sugar, 6 tbs. lemon juice, 1 lemon and 1 orange 
sliced thin, 1 qt. strawberries, 2 cups pulverized ice, 1 
bunch fresh mint dusted with powdered sugar for garnish. 
Add apollinaris water when ready to serve. 

Mrs. Thomas M. Partridge. 

Slice 6 oranges and 6 lemons, after paring them carefully. 
Cut a medium-sized pineapple into dice. Cut a pint of 
strawberries into halves, add to them a pt. of red rasp- 
berries. Mix with the other fruit, strewing each layer with 
granulated sugar — 2 cups in all. Let all stand together 30 
minutes before pouring in three qts. of apollinaris or other 
effervescent water. If you like, you may use clear spring 
water. It will do nearly as well. Put a great lump of ice 
into a chilled bowl and pour this mixture over it. Taste 
before serving, and if it is not sweet enough, add sugar. 
This is enough for 30 persons. Fine ! 

Halve 4 grapefruits and take out the pulp skillfully with- 
out tearing the rind. Cut the pulp into small cubes, freeing 
it from membranes and strings. With a sharp knife, a pair 
of scissors or a notching board notch the edges of the halves 
of the rind, then refill them with this mixture: Small ripe 
berries — raspberries or strawberries — Malaga grapes, 
skinned, seeded and halved, and the cubes of grapefruit. 
Strew powdered sugar over each layer as you work. When 
all are in lay maraschino cherries (or preserved cherries or 
strawberries, if you prefer) upon the top of the filled cup. 
Set in ice until it is to be served. 


Pick grapes from stems, mash them and put them through 
wine press or jelly bag. Then add as much water as you 
have grape juice, pour the water through the pressed grapes 
and press the second time. To each gallon of liquid take 
2 J lbs. sugar, be sure to dissolve sugar in boiling water 
before adding to the juice or it will harden in the keg. Then 
let it ferment. When fermentation has ceased the cask 
may be closed. It must be kept open during fermentation. 
It can be bottled any time after it is settled. 

Mrs. Albertina Kramer. 


2 cases currants, 30 lbs. sugar. Crush currants and let 
stand 24 hours. There should be 3| gallons of juice. 
Then strain through double cheese cloth. After the juice 
is squeezed out of the currants cover the pulp with water, 
let cook 20 minutes, strain through cheese cloth. Take 
liquid from pulp and place on fire, add sugar, leave on fire 
until sugar is melted. Take from fire, let cool. Then add 
the melted sugar to the juice and place all in a cask, and 
fill it with soft water. Keep the cask full so the sediments 
will run out. Add water every two or three hours for a 
week or so. Then set away for a month and fill up cask every 
day or so. Afterwards draw off wine in a clean cask, as the 
wine is better standing in wood. Bottle it if you desire. 

Ambrose A. Guiwits. 

1 cup granulated sugar, juice 6 lemons. Stir until dis- 
solved, then put in 3 peeled lemons sliced thin and put on 
ice until ready to serve. Then add 1 qt. powdered ice, 1 
doz. sprigs mint. Stir well for a minute and add from a 
height 5 bottles of ginger ale, \ bottle red cherries. This is 
also called "Temperance Punch." Mrs.M.G.Rodearmel. 


CAFE NOIR (Black Coffee). 
2 cups coffee, 1 egg, 1| cup cold water, 6 cups boiling 
water, \ cup cold water. Mix coffee egg (crushed shell) and

settle for 5 minutes. Serve hot. Mrs. C. Burwell.
