Recently, however, a man cook reaped a worthwhile reward through the gift' of a pleased patron of a sweepstake ticket which made him the winner of a large sum of money. The dish which brought him fortune was hasenpfeffer, which in plain English is rabbit stew. The editorial page of one of the newspapers stat ed: “If der Koch’s windfall means encouragement of good cooks, well and good, for there can never be too much of that.” No doubt the butchers are feeling a demand for rabbit and the recipe for hasenpfeffer will be welcome. It does take several days for its com pletion, but takes very little actual time and labor in its preparation. Rabbit Is not used as much in this country as It Is abroad, but any one who once dares to try It will be like ly to use It again, as the meat is tender, the flavor Is excellent and the price is low. If you use any one of the following recipes, you will surely be rewarded by the apprecl ation of your family. Prepare the rabbit and cut In pieces. Cover with vinegar and wa ter, equal parts; add one sliced onion, salt, pepper, cloves and bay leaves. Allow this to soak two days. Drain the meat and brown in hot butter, turning it often and let simmer about a half-hour or until tender. Before serving, stir one cupful thick, sour cream into the sauce. Wipe the rabbit with a damp cloth and rub well with salt, pepper and flour. Place in a pan with a little water, and bake it in a moderate oven (330 degrees F.), basting occa sionally with a mixture made with one-half cupful water and two table spoonfuls of butter. When the meat is tender, it should be set under the flame of a broiling oven for a few minutes to brown. The rabbit should be served with its own gravy. © Bell Syndicate.—WNU Service. ■ Hawaii Discovery Made Possible by Franklin To Benjamin Franklin Is due ”saf« conduct” that enabled the discovery of Hawaii, today one of the most powerful units of America’s national defense in the west. In the Archives of Hawaii, on the grounds of the former royal palace in Honolulu, reposes a photostatic copy of a letter written from France in 1779 by Franklin, who was then minister plenipotentiary from the United States to the Court of France. The document Is addressed to ‘‘all captains and commanders of armed ships acting by commission from the congress of the United States of America now in war with Great Britain," and explains that as Cap tain Cook’s expedition had been fit ted out before America and Great Britain were at war, the great navi gator and explorer should be given a safe conduct and not considered as an enemy.
