easiest way of thoroughly cleansing.

great help in removing the grit and
other foreign substances. Put the cur
rants in a squash strainer and sprinkle
them thickly with flour. Rub them
well between, the palms of the hands
until the bunches are separated, and

Before a boiled ham has had a
chance to cool, a certain cook cuts

cutting, then ties the whole up tight
