Best Way to Use Ice.
Unless Ice is artificially made from
pure water it Is better to chill the
beverage by putting the pitcher or bot
tle against the Ice than to put cracked
Ice into the liquid; in this case the
chill is soon lost if glasses are filled
even a minute or two before the meal
is served. A cold, well chilled custard
is almost as good as ice on a hot day.
In fact, a knowledge of what must lie
hot and what must be chilled counts
for as much in common foods as in
serving wines.
