Twentieth Century Club 



The women of Pennsylvania and the American 
Nation have contributed much and have sacriticed 
much to help win the war that is being waged to 
guarantee the safety of American homes and per- 
manency of American institutions, but more will be 
demanded before we can hope for victory, as much 
perhaps as has been demanded in England and 
France where the women of gentle birth are work- 
ing in the fields and factories to relieve men needed 
at the front. When our crisis comes, the patriotism 
of American women will prove them equally worthy 
of the sons and brothers who are fighting and dying 
to keep them safe ; but for the immediate present 
there is no more important war activity in which 
women may engage than the careful conservation of 
our food supply which is altogether inadequate to 
the needs of our own men and our allies at the fight- 
ing front unless we drastically modify our own use 
of such exportable staples as wheat, meat, sugar and 
animal fats. This is one of the ways by which our 
patriotic women may put love of country above all 
personal consideration. 

Federal Food Administrator of Pennsylvania. 

A nation in war assumes for its women burdens 
just as great as those borne by its men. She is called 
into workshops, offices, and to the farm to do the 
work of the husband or son who is taken to bear 
arms in behalf of his country. She follows the army 
to care for the wounded and give comfort to the 
dying. Nowhere is her service more effective and 
indispensable in such critical times than in the con- 
servation and scientific planning of the food we eat. 

A serious shortage of food is one of the sure 
results of war. In this war we are called upon not 
only to feed our own people, but we have assumed 
the responsibility of providing that which is needed 
to be added to the greatly depleted supply of those 
engaged with us in the war. 

Our country possesses the most bountiful 
variety of foodstuffs. To us our allies turn — on 
the verge of starvation. Of our bounty we must 
so choose as to release for use abroad the urgently 
needed concentrated foodstuffs. The choosing is the 
task and privilege of our devoted women. 

I commend, therefore, the use of the conserva- 
tion recipes in this book and urge that in the other 
recipes a careful scientific substitution be practiced, 
at least in the present world emergency. By so 
doing you will furnish food for many an empty 
mouth and shivering body. 

Federal Food Administrator for Allegheny County. 

March 30. 1918. 

Today one rarely hears it said that "A woman's 
place is in the home," for if the women of England 
and France had practiced this old adage, the war 
would already be lost. However, there is no doubt 
that a woman's war work, whatever form it may 
take, should commence in the home, in conserving 
the health of her children, an-d conserving those 
foodstuffs which are most needed by our soldiers and 
allies. No matter how many days a week American 
women may give to selling Liberty Bonds or 
war saving stamps, to making bandages, sweaters 
or socks, their efforts will be in vain, if they have 
not done their part toward feeding those who fight 
for them. The time has passed when we can plead 
ignorance of the demands of the Food Administra- 
tion, and I think the time will come when the 
woman who, through laziness or selfishness, fails 
to obey those demands, will be considered (and 
rightly) just as much of a "slacker" as the man who 
tries to evade the call for service. 

Much has been done by the women of Pitts- 
burgh during the first year of the war, but far more 
must be done before we shall have won the war. 
The time is at hand when the great question for 
each of us must be, "How can I order my life to- 
day that I may be of service in shortening this con- 
flict?" How can I arrange my meals and manage 
my household so that I am using only such amounts 
of wheat, meat, sugar and animal fats as are a bare 
necessity?" To such a task we may well dedicate 
ourselves on this, the anniversary of our entrance 
into the war.

Co. Woman's Committee, Council of

on the stove. Lift jars out of boiler, dip rubber bands in 
boiling water for a minute, put on jars, fill to overflowing 
with the boiling syrup and screw lids tight. Do not have 
more than 1 jar open at a time. 

In doing a small amount of fruit, or when working alone, 
it is better to do a few jars at a time. Then while filling 2 
jars the syrup is boiling. Before starting to fill the third jar 
set both kettles off the fire. By the time the third jar is filled, 
the syrup and cooked fruit are both cool enough to handle. 

Plums and small fruits, except blackberries, may be done 
this way. 

It is not necessary to place fruit in cold water to keep 
from discoloring as when hot syrup is poured on. it takes 
away any discoloration.

peach or apple. 


I Take the pulp left in the sieve and add more water, boil 

I and strain. Add equal parts sugar. Roil about 5 nxinutes making 
[ a syrup for freezing. 


Select fresh Concord grapes — wash, stem, and place in 
vessel with very little water, just enough to start grapes 

Cook until soft, strain tlirough cheese cloth and let 
stand until settled. Pour off, return to stove add small 
amount of sugar, taking care not to sweeten too much as 
more can be added as desired. Barely let come to boil. Pour 
into hot sterilized bottles or jars and seal. Serve with crushed 
ice. Water can be added. 


Prepare and stew as for ordinary table use, but cook a 
shorter time and use half as much sugar and a very small 
amount of water. Put in sterilized jars and seal. When used, 
sugar may be added to taste. 




Pare and cut in halves, barely cover with hot water, 
cook until tender, place in sterilized jars standing in hot 

Strain water in which fruit was cooked. With this water 
ane one-half amount of svigar, make a sjTup and pour over 
fruit while hot. Seal. 

Note. — Prepare and cook enough for one jar at a time. 



Select choice, large fruit. Prepare, cook and make ayrup 
as above. After removing from water, fill centers with can- 
died ginger, pineapple, cherries, raisins, etc., and nuts chopped 
fine. Tie halves together with coarse thread. Place in hot 
sterilized jars, pour hot syrup over peaches, filling jar. Place 
lid on jar, do not seal tight at first. Put jars in very slightly 
heated oven with oven door partly open. Leave for 1 hour. 
Remove and seal. 


Make a rich syrup and keep hot. Select perfect berries, 
wash and stem. Place in sterilized jars, pour hot syrup 
over berries, filling jar. Place lid on jar, do not seal tight 
at first. Put jars in very slightly heated oven with oven 
door partly open. Leave for 2 or 3 hours. Remove and seal. 

Red raspberries and grapes may be canned in same way. 

'(Mrs. S. A. Pickering) 


Seed by hand and carefully prepare sour red cherries, 
in proportion of % fruit to J4 sugar. Let both simmer un- 
til they boil, then cook rapidly for about ten minutes. Put 
in sterilized jars and seal. 


The addition of salt to peaclies and plum preserves gives 
a richness of flavor that the fruit seems to lack when pre- 


Some fruits are lacking in pectin, the component which 
is necessary to make them "jell." To test fruit juices for 
the necessary amount of pectin, add a small amount of a 
15 per cent solution of grain alcohol to an equal amount of 
the fruit juice. If mixture remains clear, it will not "jell," 
but if it becomes murky when cooled, it has sufficient pectin. 
Fruits that lack it, very often are supplied with a sufficient 
amount of pectin by adding a medium sliced carrot to every 
quart of juice. The carrots do not affect the taste. 

(Mrs. D. M. Buck) 


Canned Vegetables 


Cut corn from cob 2 cups of water 

9 cups of corn Cup of salt 
2 cups of sugar 

Put all in kettle on the fire. After it comes to boiling 
point, cook five minutes, stirring often. 

I^'ill the jars at once while hot. 

Before cooking for eating, wash the corn well in cold 
water. Let it soak in cold water three hours. Changing the 
water. Just before serving jnit on fire, let come to boiling 
point. Drain off water, dress with a little cream and butter. 
(No salt). 


10 cups corn 1 cup sugar 
1 cup sail 

Mix sugar and salt with the corn and ;)lace on back 
of stove until enough milk or juice is drawn to cook it. 
Then place on front of stove. Cook for 12 minutes after 
it has begun to boil. Then pack tight in jars which are 
sterilized. Screw lids tight after testing the rubber. 

W'hen ready to use boil off with one or two waters until 
just salt enough to suit taste. 

(Mrs. William Watson Smith) 


10 cups corn 1 generous cup sugar 

1/ cup water 1 .-^cant cup of salt 

Let stand on low flame until heated, and draw water, 
then put over higher flame and boil ten minutes. Put in air 
tight jars. Before using soak 3 or 4 hours and dress with 
a cream sauce. 

(Mrs. H. A. Ross) 


Prepare by removing seeds. Cut in strips or leave wdiole. 
Blanch by dipping in hot water for 2 or 3 minutes, then 
immediately into cold water. Pack in jars — fill jar with boil- 
ing water, add a level teaspoon salt. 'Sterilize 90 minutes. 

(Mrs. Thos. J. Gillespie) 

Buy empty flour sacks by the dozen from your grocer, 
to use for dish towels. 



Pare and cut in round slices egg plant. Place in cheese 
clotli and dip in boiling water for 2 or 3 minutes, then place 
immediately in cold water. Pack in jar, fill jar with boil- 
ing water, add 1 teaspoon salt. Place in steamer, steam for 
30 minutes. 


Pare and cut the egg plant into slices about a quarter of 
an inch thick, lay over platters and place in a moderate oven 
until dry; keep in covered vessels. 

To Cook 

Soak in water for about 2 hours, then parboil 10 minutes 
with a little baking soda in the water, dry it with a towel, 
dip in eggs and in bread or cracker crumbs and fry. 

(Mrs. W. Seward B. Hays) 


Putting up Vegetables 



Use Atlas or Ball Mason Jars. These should be in per- 
fect condition, no nicks around mouth, an even thread at 
neck, so that lid can screw perfectly tight. 


Should be thorough, and imperfect jars discarded. Many 
are rough around edge at opening; file, off parts extending 
over edge, which might prevent lid from screwing tight. 


Thoroughly cleanse by making a very hot soapy water. 
Put a little water in each jar, with a small amount of bak- 
ing soda to sweeten. Wash in the suds, rinse several times 
in clear hot water. Fill jar with clear cold water, place in 
boiler. Then fill boiler with cold water to half the depth of 
jar. When it starts to boil let it continue until jars are thor- 
oughly sterilized, about twenty minutes to a half hour. Turn 
out the fire, leaving jars in boiler until ready to use them. 
Take out a jar at a time to fill. 


Distilled or boiled water should be used for cooking. 


Place in clean vessel necessary amount of cold water. 
Let boil a few minutes; after which remove from the stove, 
cover, and let get cold. 


Use thick white bands. These should be dipped in hot 
water and dried as used. 


Should be perfect, in most cases, new. Cleanse by wash- 
ing, same as jars. Place on stove in vessel of cold water, 
let boil, take from boiling water as used. Shake lids in order 
to get all the water out. Do not dry. 



Beans, peas and carrots should be prepared as for the table. 

Beets should be pared like potatoes. If small, leave 
whole; if large, cut in two or four pieces. 

Corn should be cut oiT the ear. 

Tomatoes: Scald, remove skin, and quarter. 

String beans should not be cut. Snap or break. Very 
young beans can be put up whole. 

Beans too old to be tender left on the vine until ready 
to shell, should be put up like peas or lima beans. So pre- 
pared they are delicious and afford a good substitute for pota- 


Cut from cob. Take jar from l)oiling water, empty, put 
into it two tablespoons of corn. Take a large cob from 
which corn has been cut, press corn in jar with this until 
milk comes out. Keep putting in the corn and pressing it 
down in this manner until the jar is full, at which time the 
corn will be covered with its own milk. Place rubber band and 
lid on jar, put in boiler and steam the same as other vege- 
tables. Corn will sometimes steam out around the lid; -but 
this does no harm, it can be washed off after lid is screwed 
tight, just before applying sealing wax. 


Prepare, cook on top of stove from one to two hours, 
according to amount; after they have cooked some time, sea- 
son well with salt. Cook the water out. This makes them 
quite strong, but water can be added before using. 


When prepared, wash thoroughly in two or three waters. 
Take jars from boiler one at a time, as required. Empty 
the water, and fill immediately with the thoroughly waslied 
vegetables. Put in the salt, then fill the jar with distilled 
oi: sterilized water, place rubber band on jar, then the lid. 
Do not screw too tight — just enough to keep in the steam 
when boiling. 

When all jars are removed from boiler, empty any water 
which may be left. Place filled jars back in boiler and fill it 
with cold water, within one inch of the rubber band. Put 
lid on boiler and steam the required time with just enough 
fire to keep an even boiling point. Time is counted from 
the moment the water in boiler begins to boil, not from 
the time it was put on the stove. When finished, turn out 
the fire, remove lid from boiler to let out the steam and 
screw lids as tight as possible while jars are still in the 
boiler. Lift out one at a time with perfectly sterile tea 
towels, place on table, screw lids still tighter. When all 
jars are removed from the boiler go over them again and 

again and make sure lids are tight.. Keep rubber band, which 
tiie heat has probably softened, well under lid all around so 
that it does not slip out, while the lid is being screwed. 
When lids are tight paste with red sealing wax as a further 


To retain natural color blanching ma<y be added to the 
process for putting up vegetables. 

To blanch: After vegetables are prepared and thoroughly 
washed, place in .cheese cloth. Dip into boiling water for 
2 or 3 minutes, then in ice cold water, after which place im- 
mediately into hot sterilized jar. 

Refer to "Putting Vegetables in Jar." 


Place in a can red sealing wax, let melt and apply to 
jar while both are hot. Use an old casement knife for put- 
ting on the wax. Seal all around lid. covering both edges 
of the rubber band and the lid. 


Regular wash boiler, — new one used only for the pur- 
pose. Select one with a tight-fitting lid so as to keep in 
the steam. Have a wooden rack (slat or lattice) made to 
fit bottom of boiler.. In this way one can steam from twelve 
to sixteen jars at a time. It is preferable for this reason to 
the regular steamer. 


Place upon rack in boiler so that theiy do not touch each 
other. Otherwise they are likely to crack. 


*Peas, 2 to 2J^ hours 
*Lima Beans, 2^ to 3 hours 
^String beans, 3 hours 
*Shelled Beans, 3 hours 
**Carrots, 2^^ to 3 hours 
**Beets, 3 hours 
**rorn, 21/ to 3 hours 

*^4 teaspoonful of salt to pint jar 
**No salt 



When jars are filled and sealed, do not turn upside down 
or tip in the least. As far as possible keep contents from 
coming?' in contact with lid during process of applying sealing 
wax. marking, etc. 

When finished, wrap jars in paper, still keeping them up- 
right. Put away in cool, dark place. 

Please note that vegetables put up in this way are kept 
pure. No acids or foreign substances l)eing used, excejjt the 
salt, which is only used in those mentioned. 

These recipes have been successfully tried for several 
years with gratifying results. The writer does not hesitate 
to recommend them if followed to the letter. 

(Mrs. S. A. Pickering) 


Cook on cob as for table. Cut from cob, spread rather thin 
on pie, biscuit or cake pans, set in oven which has been 
previously used and is still hot, but with no fire. It can also 
be placed on any part of the range where it will dry but not 
cook. Stir occasionally so that it will dry thoroughly. When 
perfectly dry place in clean muslin bag. Corn which has been 
boiled for the table can be utilized in this way. 


Soak 1 cup of corn over night. i'lace in double boiler, 
cover with water, cook about 4 hours, season to taste. 

Corn soup is made in same manner by adding water, milk 
or cream. If made without milk or cream, season and thicken 
to taste. Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkling of pop 

A corn 'pudding may be made with the corn after soup 
is strained off. 

Fruits may be dried in like manner, omitting cooking.

Buy best creamery butter in early September. Knead 
about a pound or two at a time as you would bread in a 
wooden bowl, pouring water off as it is workt^d out. After 
all has been taken out pack a pound or pound and a half as 
you wish, in old muslin cloths about 12 inches square, put- 
ting butter in center, turning up opposite corners, being care- 
ful that butter is well covered. After all has been packed in 
cloths, make a salt brine strong enough to float an egg, of 
table salt and ice water. Then put an old plate on bottom of 
stone crock. Pack your squares of butter. Then a olate on

L'se an enameled or granite pan with inner surface with- 
out a flaw exposing the metal, and of a size suitable for the 
silver to be cleaned in it. 

Have a. piece of pure zinc large enough to cover, or nearly 
cover, the bottom of the pan. To every 4 quarts of clear water 
add 3 tablespoons each of salt and of baking soda. 

Let this solution become hot and then lay in the silver, 
allowing it to remain about 10 minutes. Take out, rinse in 
clear water, and wipe with a soft towel. 

If the water is not deep enough to cover tlie large pieces 
they can be laid on one side for a few minutes, and then 
the other side submerged.

Put 5 pounds of fat into large kettle with a gallon of 
water. Heat until grease is entirely melted. Set aside until 
cold, when grease will be hard. Take the grease cake from 
top of water, scrape ofi any brown particles, place into kettle 
to melt. Into a granite pan put 3 cups of cold water and stir 
into this 1 can Red Seal or Babbitt's Lye. Stir with wooden 
spoon until dissolved. Remove grease from fire and pour 
slowl}^ into the lye water, stirring constantly. Add 2 table- 
spoons ammonia and 2 tablespoons powdered borax. Stir mix- 
ture constantly until it begins to set about as thick as honey. 
Pour into pan lined with several thicknesses of wet paper. 
Cut into cakes when hard enough. 

This makes 12 cakes. Keep for a month or longer before

10 teaspoons lye 

Melt lard in oil, add lye, and when cool, add the scent. 
Stir constantly to make soap smooth. 


Use lye made by letting water drip slowly through wood 
ashes, or buy lye in cans. Use porcelain or enamel dish. 
Dissolve 1 can lye in 1 quart cold water. Melt 5 pounds fat 
in separate dish. Strain through 2 thicknesses of cheese cloth. 
Cool till luke warm. Add dissolved, cooled lye. Stir until 
mixture is like porrjdge. Pour quickly into shallow pasteboard 
boxes or dripping pan. When cool, crease into cakes. Cut 
when nearly cold. 


Save pieces of soap too small to handle, melt them in a 
little wrater over a slow fire, use in washing dishes or boiling 

Put all bits of soap into a cheese cloth bag. It can 
be used like a cake of soap. 


A little salt rubbed on the cups vvnll take out tea stains. 

When fish are fresh the skin and scales will be bright, the 
eyes full and clear, the fins stiflf, and the body firm. 

When making juicy fruit or berry pies, insert in the top 
crust a small funnel of paper, or a piece of macaroni, which 
allows the steam to escape and prevents the juice boiling over. 

Berry and fruit stains can be removed easily by holding 
the cloth tightly over the top of a bowl and pouring boiling 
water very slowly through the stains. Remove grease stains 
by saturating the spots with alcohol rather than benzine. Alco- 
hol does not leave a ring aroinid the spot when dry. Wash with 
cold water. 

To remove ink stains from the fingers moisten them with 
warm water, then rub the sulphur end of a match well over the 
stains and they will disappear. 

White spots on a 'varnished surface will disappear if a hot 
flat iron is held over them for a second. 

To clean wire screens dampen a cotton cloth with kerosene 
and rub on both sides. They will look like new and it also 
helps to keep the flies away. 

If you wish to keep your desserts right on the ice, place a 
newspaper over the ice, and the dishes will not slip off or tip 

Lemons that have become hard from long standing can be 
made usable by covering them with boiling water for a few 

Heat a lemon thoroughly before squeezing it and you will 
secure nearly double the quantity of juice that you would if 
it were not heated. 

Apples will not turn black when pared if dropped into water 
to which has been added a few drops of lemon juice. 

Remember when putting meat in the ice chest not to place 
it against the ice. as ice draws the flavor from meat. 

A few drops of lemon juice or vinegar added to the water in 
which cauliflower is to be cooked will greatly preserve its 

To hasten the baking of potatoes let them stand a few 
minutes in warm water after washing them. 

If by mistake you get the soup too salty add a few slices 
of raw potatoes and cook a few minutes. The potatoes will 
take up much of the surplus salt. Small pieces of toasted bread 
will also have the same efifect. 

A few drops of lemon juice makes cake frosting white, 
and a little fiour put over the top of a cake will prevent the 
icing from running. 

Meringue should be browned in a slow oven, otherwise it 
will fall when exposed to the air. 

When frying chickens or fish, to avoid the grease spattering, 
sift in a tiny lot of flour just before putting them in. 

A bit of sugar dissolved in the water in which cut flowers 
are kept is an English way of keeping the blossoms fresh. 



The Food Administration of Allegheny County suggests 
the following general rules for use by those persons who wish 
to adapt the standard recipes to war time conditions by substi- 
tuting for the food elements which are desired for export the 
substitutes recommended by the Fo'od Administration. These 
substitutes fall in three general classes. 

(1) Corn syrup, molasses or soft sugars instead of granulated 

(2) Vegetable fats instead of butter or lard. 

(3) Cereal substitute flours and meals instead of wheat fiour. 

(1) In su'bstituting for granulated sugar in standard 
recipes, corn syrup may be substituted for one-half of the granu- 
lated sugar by measure, reducing the other liquids in the recipe 
by 14 to ^2 of the amount of corn syrup usee'. If syrup is used 
to furnish all the sweetening, it makes an undesirably heavy 
product. Raisins, citron and other fruits can be used to fur- 
nish a portion of the sweetness. In using molasses and maple 
syrup, follow the same rule. 

Soft light brown sugars may of course be used in the 
place of the granulated sugar in equal measure, making a slight 
allowance for the small liquid content in the soft sugars. 

(2) Vegetable fats may be substituted for butter in biscuits 
and muffins in the proportion of one to two tablespoons of 
vegetable oil or hardened vegetable fats for each 34 cup of 
butter. In substituting for lard, use an equal quantity of 
vegetable oil or hardened vegetable fats. 

(3) With some care and thought the various flour and 
cereal substitutes may be substituted for a large portion of the 
flour in the standard recipes. (Instead of endeavoring to change 
bread recipes, tested bread recipes containing the proper mix- 
tures should be secured. A higher percentage of the substitutes 
can properly be used in "Quick Breads," . particularly where 
eggs are used. In baking, the gluten in wheat hardens and 
makes the mass porous. To a certain extent, eggs in "Quick 
Breads," where substitutes are used for wheat, accomplish the 
same object.) 

Substitute cereal flours and meals may be substituted suc- 
cessfully, pound for pound, for most of the wheat flour in "Quick 
Bread" recipes, such as muffins, biscuits, griddle cakes, wafiiles, 
etc. As the housewife does not make her recipes by weight, 
however, but by measure, it is necessary to indicate the amount 
by measure of the cereal flours and meals which should be used. 
The following is an illustration of the proper proportion of 
substitution in a standard recipe calling for two cups of wheat 



(1) Barley muffins — V2 cup wheat flour, 214 cups barley flour. 

(2) Buckwheat muffins — J/2 cup wheat flour, 1% cups buck- 
wheat flour. 

(3) Corn muffins — V2 cup wheat flour, 1]/^ cups corn flour. 

(4) Cornmeal muffins — J/2 cup wheat flour, !}/> cups cornmeal 

Cornmeal muffins — V2 cup wheat flour. Wa cups corn- 
meal (coarse) 

(5) Rice muffins — ^ cup wheat flour, 1% cups rice meal 
(coarse ) 

The important thing is to observe the varying proportions 
of the different flours and meals. 

Xote that the amount of wheat flour plus the amount of 
substitute flour does not always equal the two cups of wheat 
flour in the Standard recipe on account of the varying weights 
■per cup of the suggested substitutes. 

If it is desired to use cooked cereals in making muffins, 
griddle cakes or waffles, it would be best to follow the recipes 
in anj- standard cook book with the proper substitution sug- 
gested above for butter and sugar.
