I am glad to ; give you a recipe for popovers. ;
asked for in Sunday's Call, October 20.
- Their success depends upon having the oven very
hot. Two eggs, one cup of flour, one cup of milk.*half
a * teaspoon of salt, or a little less. Beat eggs'well
stir In a little of the milk, then a little of the flour"
alternating until all \ls f used. Add " the salt. Beat
thoroughly Just before 2 baking. s Bake In sat rather,"
quick oven about 20 minutes. The secret* of good
popovers is the vigorous beating. One can use egg
beater entirely. °

Jelly £ making, ; though in ; some of ; the acid ,; fruits,
the strawberry, for example, the; quantity; of ■>; the /;
' Jelly making;substance* is ;so fsmall that; It is diffi
-cult to make Jelly with this fruit. If, • however,
some ; currant;: juice •■* be/ added >to / the * strawberry
- juice, a pleasant \i Jelly will ;be'.* the ; result; ; yet, ;of
course, the flavor of the strawberry will be modi
fied. Here is a list; of the most desirable fruits for ;:
; jelly making. The best.:' are >-• given first: h Currant,
crab apple/apple;*- quince, i grape, blackberry, rasp- »,,
berry, peach, m Apples" make J a very mild ; jelly • and //*
it may be *flavored with <* fruits, flowers *or spices, c
: If ;.the apples are acid it is not advisable to use ,
any flavor. i*. -;;■".:;-:..
Juicy fruits, such ;as L currants, raspberries,, etc.. ;
should not be gathered after, a rain, for they will
have ; absorbed so much water as to make it diffi
cult, without /excessive boiling, to get I ; the Juice ■
to Jelly. If i berries are; sandy or \ dusty it will be ,r
necessary to wash them, but the work should |be./
': done; very quickly, so that the j fruit -.may? not ab
sorb - much * water. *; Large ** fruits, '*- sueh *'• as.; apples,
peaches» and * pears, must ?be boiled •In water until .--*
* soft. The strained liquid will contain the ; flavor
ing matter and pectin. It : requires more work and /
skill /to « make Jellies from /•■< the fruits to which t
i water must be added , than >, from V; the Juicy fruits..
If the Juicy I fruits - are gathered at * the : proper j time
: : one may be nearly sure that they contain the right
; proportion of water. If .gathered after* a rain -the
fruit must be boiled a little longer, that the super- ; ;
fluous water may pass off lin steam. In the case of
? the } large * fruits * fair estimate jls three * quarts *of
strained Juice from eight quarts of ■ fruit and about "--..
four t quarts of water. If the quantity of .juice is , ,
greater than this it should be boiled down to
"-' three * : quarts;/-Apples,*. will ;? always«s require t- ■ four
; quarts water to eight! quarts of fruit, but juicy,..;
peaches and plums ; will require only three or three .r
! and a half : quarts."/ The ; jelly will be £ clearer and r ,
: finer ;if a the fruit '» is simmered % gently and not "
; stirred V during the cooking. It is j always »best%, to ;;
: strain the juice first through.; a cheese cloth "and
without * pressure. ;': If the cloth "is? double the juice
will be » quite clear. When a/ very clear "? jelly is Xs,
desired the strained Juice should pass through a -I
5 flannel or felt bag. The 5 juice may be pressed from •
' the fruit left and ; used lin marmalade *or for ! a
second quality jelly. To make J jelly that will not
crystalize * (candy ) > the '3 right « proportion *of sugar 3
must be added to the fruit juice. If the fruit con- '■•■/-■
' tains* a? high I percentage" of sugar the quantity* of y :;■■
; added sugar should be a little less than the quan- : /
'•• tity ;of * fruit ;• juice. That is to say in \ a season! where ■■-.
there has been a great deal of heat and sunshine ;;
cthere? will be more sugar in the fruit than in a ;;
- cold, wet 5 season; \ consequently one | pint • of ) currant
