SOUR MILK VERY
USEFUL AS FOOD Has Some Food It Originally Had Because It Is Source of Lime for Bone Building. LACTIC ACID IS HEALTHFUL Clabber la Reliahed as Refreshing and Wholesome by Many People, Espe pecially If Served With Bugar and Sweet Cream. fPreDared by *the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) “Accidents will happen in the best regulated families.” In spite of the most careful protection from dust, (lies, or exposure to the sun, milk oc casionally turns sour in the refriger ator during the hottest months. It may be that there is more left-over milk than usual, or that the Ice sup ply Is low, or that heat or thunder have affected the milk. Sour milk, nevertheless, has the same food value as It had originally, specialists in the United States Department of Agricul ture say, because it Is still a source of lime for bone building, of protein for tissue repair. Lactic Acid Considered Healthful. The bacteria which have caused souring are not necessarily harmful, If the milk was properly cared for, and the effect of those which caused the development of the lactic acid in the milk is thought by some to be beneficial. Many who cannot get but termilk to drink like to churn thick, freshly soured milk with an egg beat er tilt the curds are broken up into yie particles, and use U in the same way. . T. Clabber —the coagulated, semiliquid state of fresh sour milk —is relished "as refreshing and wholesome by many people, especially If served with sugar and sweet cream. The addition of maple sirup, honey, orange marmalade, or other preserves to clabbered cream makes a delicious dessert.

Whipped sour cream 1b often added to mayonnaise salud dressing for fruit salads. . No housewife needs to be told that good gingerbread can be made witli sour milk, ns well as corn breads of various kinds. In most recipes where sour milk is used as a leaven with soda, fewer eggs are called for. Very good pancakes nnd combrend can be made with sour milk, omitting eggs entirely. Farmers’ Bulletin 505, Corn Meal as a Food nnd Ways of Using It, gives no less than nine recipes call ing for sour milk. Among them is this easy wuy of making Boston Brown Bread: Boston Brown Broad. I cupful corn meal. 1 teaspoonful salt. 1 cupful rye meal. 94 cupful molasses. 1 cupful* graham 2 cupfuls sour milk, flour. or 194 cupfuls sweet 196 teas poonfula milk, soda. Mix and sift the dry Ingredients and add the molasses and milk. Bent thoroughly and steam 3V6 hours In well-buttered, covered molds. One pound baking pow’der tins are satis factory. Remove the covers nnd bake the bread long enough to dry the top. This may be made also with IVi cupfuls coni meal and rye meal nnd no graham flour. A cupful of seeded and shredded raisins or prunes or a cupful of currants may be added. This serves eight people. If there is only a very little sour milk on hand, why not make some cookies? They may be made with corn meal. Oatmeal cookies are also excellent. Corn-Meal Cookies. 94 cupful fat. 2 cupfuls corn meal. 96 cupful corn 96 teaspoon ful soda. sirup. 1 cupful flour. 96 cupful molasses. 1 teaspoonful clnna* J egg. mon. 6 tablespoonfuls sour mlllc. Combine the melted fnt, sirup, mo lasses, beaten egg, and sour milk. Sift together the corn meal, soda, and flour. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry Ingredients. Drop from a tenspoon into a greased pan and bake 35 min utes in a moderate oven. This recipe makes 55 to 00 cookies 2 inches in diameter. Sour milk or buttermilk and baking soda may frequently be substituted where the recipe calls for sweet milk. In place of one teaspoonful of baking powder a scant half teaspoonful of soda Is used to each cupful of sour milk. Chocolate cake Is particularly good when this substitution is made. In griddle cakes and muffins the sums plan may be followed.

VINEGAR USEFUL IN VEGETABLE CANNING Time of Processing May Be Somewhat Reduced. Two Years of Experimental Work on Subject Made by Home Economies Kitchen—Much Corn Reported Spoiled La it Year. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) A little vinegar added to beans, corn, peas, asparagus, or spinach when canned by the water-bath meth od, will add materially in the reduc tion of loss by spoilage. Moreover, the time of processing these vegetables may be somewhat reduced when a sufficient amount of acid Jw used, the home economics kitchen of the United States Department of Agriculture re ports after two years of experimental work on the subject. In certain sections of the country In 1019 and 1020 canned sweet corn <llcl not keep well, whether processed continuously or intermittently. In the home economics kitchen quart cons of processed for less than six hours continuously spoiled, while others canned nt the same time, with the addition of four tablespoons of vinegar to one qunrt, did not spoil either year, although given only two hours process ing. If only three tnhlespoonfuls of vinegar ore used, process four hours; two or three tablespoonfuls of lemon juice to a quart have equally good re sults when processed three hours. Corn should nlwn.vs be boiling hot when packed Into the Jar. With spinach and string beans the ndffitlojn of two tnhlespoonfuls of the acid proved equally effective In reduc ing spoilage. Vinegnr or lemon Juice in the small nmounts used modifies to some degree the natural flavor of the vegetable, hut the acid taste Is not objectionable to most persons. Moreover, much of the acid taste can he washed off before the vegetables are served. Experiments with vinegnr and other acids in canning vegetables will be continued In the kitchen next year. FRESH FRUIT IS EXCELLENT It Supplies Some Sugar and the Im portant Mineral Matters, Mild Acide and Vitamines. Fruit is food. It supplies some sugar and the Important mineral matters, mild fruit acids, and vitamines, say experts in the United States Depart ment of Agriculture, office of home economics. These food substances help to keep the body in good health and to prevent constipation. Use fresh fruit whenever possible nnd can the surplus.' Apples, pears, plums, peaches, cherries, oranges, grapefruit, grapes, hnnanns, avocados, berries—the list is very long. Some where in the United Stntes some of them are always In season, nnd some are In market everywhere much of the time. Use dried fruits, either home dried or those on sale almost everywhere. Soak prunes, dried apples, dried nprl cots In water overnight nnd cook them long enough to make them tender. Use dates, figs, or raisins. These nre very good added to breakfast ce renl 10 minutes before taking It from the stove.

COLORADO NEWS NOTES. Record-breaking crops of both wheat and corn for Colorado and somewhat better than average production of most of the less Important crops, are the outstanding features in the state-fed eral crop report for July, bused upon the conditions of ull crops on July 1, Just issued by the Colorado Co-opera tive Crop Reporting Service. The con dition of winter wheat on July 1 was 89 per cent of normal, the same ns that for June and for July 1 last year, but seven points above the ten-year aver age. Revised acreage figures, based upon nearly complete reports from county assessors, place the urea of winter wheat left for harvest at 1,400,- 000 acres, compared with 1.090 000 acres harvested In 1920 and 1,0112,000 acres returned by the census bureau in 1919. If condition at liurvest time is tlie same as that on July 1 the pro duction will lie about 27,312,000 bush els, compared with a final estimate of 19,841,000 bushels last year and 13,- 675,000 bushels reported by the cen sus bureau for 1919.
