"I am sure that I have demon

courts are wrong In compelling a be

such confidences should be respected.
It Is s strange rale that this should be denied In a tribunal where the value
of such a confidence to the stnte and to justice Is perhaps the greatest. Sc

THE CHEYENNE RECORD

Vegetable Is Exceptionally Rich

RARELY COOKED PERFECTLY
Except for 8poelal Reasons Simploat

Takaa Much Patianca and
Watar to Waah Cloan.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
One of the first vegetables In the
garden or on the market in the early
spring Is that reliable stand-by—
spinach. The shoots should be cut reg
ularly; If not, the old shoots become
tough and rank flavored.
Spinach furnishes little body energy,
but It is exceptionally rich In Iron and
is one of the Important vitamines, and
so is a valuable food, say specialists In
the United States Department of Agri
culture. It contains little starch and
only a suggestion of sugar, and Is
therefore one of the vegetables that
physicians Include in the bill of fare
of many Invalids who require a diet
without these carbohydrates.
Cheap in First Cost.
Like most other vegetables, It Is
rarely cooked to perfection, yet It Is
not difficult to prepare. Except for
special reasons, the simplest methods
ore the best for this vegetable. No
matter how cheap the raw spinach may
be, it Is always expensive in one
thing—labor. It takes a good deal of
time, water, and patience to wash It
To clean the spinach cut off the
roots s break the leaves apart and drop
them Into a lurge pun of water, rinse
them well, and lift them Into a second
pan of wuter. Do not pour the water
off over the splnnch or the grit that
has been washed off will get back on
the leaves. Continue washing In clean
waters until there is not a trace of
sand on the bottom of the pan. If the
spinach is at all wilted, let It stand
In cold wuter until It becomes fresh
and crisp. Drain from this water
and blanch os follows:
For half a peck of spinach put In a
large saucepan 3 qharts of boiling
water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Put
the drained spinach in the boiling
water and let It boll 10 minutes, count
ing from the -time It begins to boll.
When It begins to boll, <)raw the cover
of the saucepan a little to one side
to allow the steam to escape. At the
end of 10 minutes pour the spinach
Into a colapder, and when the ho*
water has passed off pour cold water
over it. Let It drain well and mince
coarse or fine, as Is suitable for the
manner In which It is to be served.
One peck of spinach will make about
1% pints when blanched and minced.
8pinach With Egg.
H peck spinach.
8 tablespoons butter or other fat
M teaspoon pepper.
8 teaspoons salt.
Wash and blanch the spinach, using
two teaspoons of the salt In the water
In which the vegetable Is boiled.
Drain the blanched spinach and chop
rather fine, return It to the saucepan,
Spinach It an Especially Valuable
and add the salt, pepper, and butter or
other fat. Place on the Are and cook
ten minutes. Heap In a mound on a
hot dish and garnish with the hard
boiled eggs, cut In slices.
Bpinach Cooked Without Water.
Fresh spinach when washed holds
enough water for cooking. Put the
spinach into a covered saucepan and
cook for ten minutes. Press down and
turn the spinach over several times
during the cooking. At the end of ten
minutes turn the spinach into a chop
ping bowl, and mince rather fine. Re
turn to the saucepan and add the sea
sonings, allowing for half a peck of
spinach two generous tablespoons of
butter or other fat and a teaspoon of
salt. Simmer for ten minutes; or If
very tender, five minutes will be suffi
Spinach cooked In this manner will
retain all Its salts and the flavor will
be stronger than when blanched
(boiled in water). In young, tender
spinach this Is not objectlouable, but
when the overgrown vegetable is
cooked in its owq moisture the flavor
Is strong and somSwhat acrid,

and scales, and tie in bundles. Blanch
by Immersing first the lower ends in
boiling water for two minutes, then
the entire stem for two minutes longer.
Plunge, into cold water, drain and pack
curefully with the tips up. Fill pint
jars with brine (4% ounces of salt to
one gallon of sater) and process 60
minutes in steam-pressure cooker un
der five pounds pressure. If a hot
water is used for processing, boil
the Jars intermittently one hour on
each of three consecutive days. (In
cold climates, with young and tender
asparagus, boiling continuously for two
hours will probably be sufficient.)
Seal the Jars and remove from can
ner, invert while cooling, and watch
carefully for leaks. When cool store
In a dark, dry, cool place.
