Animal vs. Vegetable.
There is not a single kind of animal
food which we might not replace with
a vegetable counterpart In most cases
it is merely a matter of choice which is
preferable, the animal or the vegetable.
In the matter of cooking fats, however,
the vegetable has far the advantage.
Lard is made from the fat of hogs,
often impure and unclean, always indi
gestible. Cottolene comes from the cot
ton fields of the Sunny South. It makes
food that can be digested with ease,
even by invalids. Cottolene is recom
mended by both physicians and noted
cooking experts as a much more health
ful and desirable cooking fat than lard.
