AN INDISPENSIBI.E INGREDIENT. 

A young lady, whose mother was famous for her good cake, was once asked by some 
friends where she was visiting to make them some cake such as her mother made at 
home. She said she could not, as she did not have all the ingredients. To this they 
replied, that she would have no trouble on that account, as they would buy her every- 
thing she needed. "No," said she, "when mother makes a cake she puts in lots of 
common sense, and you cannot buy that at the store." Moral: Let all who use this 
Cook Book count this as part of each recipe :

Tomato Soup. 

Pare and chop two good sized tomatoes. Put into one quart 
of boiling water, and let boil twenty minutes. Then turn in one 
quart of milk, at the same time adding a tea-spoon full of baking 
powder to prevent the ascidity of the tomatoes turning the milk. 
Add six rolled crackers, a piece of butter the size of an egg, salt, 
and let boil up. Add a little pepper. Mrs. Abbott. 



Tomato Soup. 



Haifa three-pound can of tomatoes, a pint and a half of boil- 
ing water. Boil fifteen minutes. Add a small salt-spoon full of 
cooking soda, and then a pint and a half of sweet milk. Salt, but- 
ter and pepper to taste. Crumb in a few oyster crackers. 

Mrs. Brooker. 

Potato Soup. 

Take Irish potatoes ; pare and cut into small bits, so that there 
will be about two quarts when they are all cut up. Put them in a 
pot containing about four quarts of boiling; water, and let them boil 
till soft. Put into a frying pan about half a cup full of butter; let 
it melt, and add a cup full of Hour; stir it and keep smoothing it 
with a knife till it is nicely brpwned. Do not let it get into too 
large lumps. Here and there a piece not quite as large as a pea 
will be right, but the most of it should be finer. When the potatoes 
are done, put the browned flour into the pot with them. Season 
with pepper and salt, and the soup is done. Mrs. H. C. Doll. 



Noodle Soup. 

For Stock: Boil one shin of beef, and strain; after it cools, 
skim off fat. For noodles : One egg, half an egg-shell of water, 
one tea-spoon full of salt, flour to mix. Roll thin as paper; then 
roll as you do a jelly cake, and cut very thin and spread to dry. 
On the second day put on the stock and heat to boiling hot, then 
add the noodles and boil ten minutes. Mrs. J. Montgomery.

Boiliitg Ham. 

In the morning wipe it oft ; if there are any rusty or discolored 
spots, scrape them oft". The ham should be boiled very slowly ; 
on this depends the sweetness and ftakiness of the lean ham. 
Some whole cloves and a bouquet of herbs may be added to the 
boiling water with good effect. When the ham is done, set the 
kettle oft" the fire, and let the ham remain in the water until it is 
cold. It will absorb a great deal of the juices that have boiled 
out. Then lay it in a large dripping pan, and spread a mixture, 
made after the following directions, over the ham : Take hall a 
cup full of brown sugar, a tea-spoon full of browned flour ; moisten 
it with a little sweet cream. Then set the pan in the oven and let 
the ham brown. When cold, cut it in very thin slices, and the fla- 
vor will be delicious. Mrs. Havs,
