Peaches and cream—that’s
about the last word in fruit per
ection. But for a change now and
then, try peaches in some other
way. For breakfast, try them and
serve with crisp bacon and rolls.
Use firm but ripe peaches. Cut
in half and remove pits. Sprinkle
lightly with salt and then roll in
brown sugar. Fry them gently in
hot bacon drippings. That’s a new
brand of breakfast surprise.
For luncheon, serve them bak
ed. Use large peaches. Peel, cut
in half, remove pits. Into each
cavity, place a little butter, about
1 teaspoon sugar, 1-4 teaspoon lem
on juice and a shake of cinnamon.
Bake in moderate over (350 de
grees F. for about 15 or 20 min
utes. Serve hot with cold cream.
Peach ice cream is rated as one
of the best of all frozen desserts.
Here are two recipes, one for the
automatic refrigerator, one for the
old-fashioned and ever popular
hand freezer.
One and one-half cups fresh
peach pulp, 1-3 cup Cor more to
taste) granulated sugar, 1-8 tea
spoon salt, 1 tablespoon lemon
juice, 1 cup heavy cream, well
whipped, 1 3-4 cup evaporated milk.
Sprinkle sugar over peach pulp
and stand 10 minutes. Then add
salt and lemon juice. Stir and
stand 5 minutes. Combine gently
the whipped cream and undiluted
evaporated milk. Add to peach
pulp mixture. Freeze in refrig
erator tray until mushy. Remove
from tray and scrape bottom and
sides until smooth. Return to tray
and freeze for 3 hours more.
Three cups fresh peach pulp, 1-4
teaspoon salt, 1 3-4 cups granulated
sugar, 1-3 teaspoon almond extract
1 quart heavy cream, 1 1-3 table
spoons lemon juice.
Add salt to peach pulp. Sprinkle
pulp with sugar, lemon juice and
almond extract. Stand for about
10 minutes, stirring several times.
Chill, then add cream Cdo not
whip the cream). Freeze in hand
freezer, using 3 parts ice to 1 part
salt. Remove dasher, then pack
for 2 hours in 4 parts ice and 1
part salt. This will ripen the ice
cream and give it a smoother tex

Both are faults, but to the beginner
