now. And in it’s bright redness
lies stores of Vitamin C as well as
excellent supplies of all the other
vitamins—for tomatoes are right
up there with the citrus fruits as
our most important vitamin sup
Commercially, we are told that
tomatoes are the top-ranking
canned vegetable. And that should
hold true of home canning as well.
Because when tomatoes are “in”
in quality and quantity, there’s no
easier vegetable to put up. To
matoes are the only common
vegetable that can be safely
processed without a pressure
cooker. Their acid helps kill bac
teria and so they’re perfectly safe
processed by the boiling-water

decay, are the canning require
ments. And here's how to put up

pensable canning aid. the food

down to 10 to 12 minutes.

Want to try your band at mak
ing petits fours—those delectable
looking little cakes usually turned
out by a professional for swank
tea parties and receptions?
Cream half a cup of butter
until very smooth, and add to it,
gradually, one cup of powdered
sugar. Cream until fluffy, add
two teaspoons of vanilla. Mix a
quarter cup of almond paste with
two tablespoons of milk, beating,
with a fork until smooth. Beat
in 4 eggs and 2 egg yolks. Sift
one and three quarters cups of
flour several times, and add it
gradually, a little at a time. Turn
the batter into a greased e'/ixrox
1-inch pan lined with heavy!
greased paper, and push the
dough up along the sides to make i
a fiat top cake when baked.
Bake in a moderately slow oven
for forty minutes, then let stand
for five minutes before removing
from the pan; place a board or
pan on top, pressing down light
ly; remove the board when the
cake is cold. Cut the cold cake,
bottom side up, in one-inch strips
crosswise, then in one - inch
squares, circles, stars or any other
Make a coating of half a cup
of apricot jelly, half a cup of
simple syrup, and two teaspoons
of rum. Dip each piece of cake
carefully into the coating; this
keeps them moist and gives gloss
to the frosting. Set the cakes
on a slab or sheet of waxed paper,
and pour fondant frosting over
each one. It will take about one
cup of frosting for each four
cakes; you can make fresh
batches from time to time, tint
ing each a different color to lead
variety to the cakes.
Fondant frosting is made this
way: In a saucepan put two cups
of sugar, a cup of water and two
tablespoons of light corn syrup.
Stir over low heat until sugar
is dissolved, then boil, covered,
for three minutes, then boil un
covered until the soft ball stage.
Pour out into shallow pan, and
when lukewarm work with a
spatula until creamy, then knead
until smooth. Store in a tightly
covered jar for a couple of days
before using. Then melt a cup
of the ripened fondant in the
top of a double boiler; add just
enough simple sugar syrup to
make a right consistency to
spread. Keep hot in the double
boiler. Tint any desired color.
When the frosting is dry, deco
rate the cakes as you wish, with
colored boiled frosting forced
through a tube, plus silver “shot”
and candied violet and rose
