Robert Paterson of Hannibal and "Winter Vegetables- A little sugar added to turnips, beets and squash will be an improve ment. The proportion of salt in cooking vegetables is a teaspoonful to every gallon of water. Turnips, carrots and onions should never be split, but sliced in rings cut across the fiber. Onions should be soaked in warm salt water to remove their strong fla vor before cooking. In buying turnips remember that small white ones contain more " nutri ment than the large yellow ones. When vegetables require stirring it should be done with a wooden spoon, and this should also be used for tak ing them up. All vegetables should be thoroughly cooked and it is important to remem ber that late, ones require a longer time than early ones. Vegetables that are stored in the cellar will often need "sorting" and all wilting or decaying ones should be im mediately removed. A piece of red pepper the size of a pea dropped in with the vegetables when first beginning to cook will greatly aid in killing the ordor, and this should be remembered in cook ing cabbage. Carrots, turnips, parsnips, beets, cabbage and onions are improved by being boiled with fresh meats, but if they are to be served with salt meat the meat should first be cooked and then removed, and the vegetables cooked in the liquor.
