Pasteurized. milk is that which has

that temperature from ten to thirty
minutes before being rapidly cooled
and put on Ice, says Good Housekeep
ing.. ...:. . ti
It may seem strange that a lower
temperature than the boiling point
should be the one selected, but bacteria
which cause milk to sour are killed
at 155 degrees and the disease germs
which are likely to be present are de
stroybd at 170 degrees.
For the mother who wishes to pas
teutize'At home, the simplest and (with
care) a safe home method is to place
the milk in glass jars, fill a pail with
boiling water and place the jars in
this. The water should come nearly to
the' top of the jars and above the milk.
8et the pail in a warm place and stir
he' milk occasionally. The milk is
heated to' the desired degree Wifore the
water is lOwered to the pasteurizing
temperature. Lastly and most im
portant, cool the milk by ruunng cold
wanter into'the pail, then stopper' quick
ly and( set on iee.
