-BtTOBNE), Or., March l. Bear Miss
Tingle: la it possible to successfully can
greens for winter use? If so, what kinds
are best and what Is the best method of
canning- them? M. H. L.
Greens and salad plants, like other
vegetables which we use most abun
dantly In summer, are very commonly
canned for winter use. They may
be preserved in other ways also. A
Cold - paok method of canning
greens Blanch In vessel with little
water 15 minutes. Remove and plunge
in cold water quickly. Cut in con
venient length. Season with slice of
bacon or chipped beef, a little for
each pint. Pack closely in glass jar.
Add hot water to fill and a level tea
spoon of salt to each quart. If using
a glass jar, place rubber and top in
place, partially sealed. Process SO
minutes in home-made or hot-water
bath outfit; 60 minutes commercial
canner with five pounds of steam, 40
minutes in pressure cooker canner
with from 10 to 20 pounds of steam.
After sterilization, remove from can
ner, tighten covers and invert to
cool. Put away in dark, cool room
All greens should be blanched in
an open kettle with but a little water
at the bottom for the purpose of
eliminating the excessive acids and
yet not destroy the volatile oils, and
also to reduce the bulk and make
possible a full pack. Blanching of
greens Is best accomplished, without
loss of volatile oils, in a steamer.
Green and salad plants are both
cultivated and wild. Some of the
best ones are often thought of only
as weeds. A list of some of both
Cultivated greens and salad plants
Asparagus, beet tops, turnip tops,
cabbage sprouts, collards, Chinese
cabbage leaves, spinach, kale, Swiss
chard, endiv e dandelions, mustard
(native), Russian mustard, rape. New
Wild greens and salad plants
Dandelion, chicory, marsh marigold
"cowslip," mustard, upland cress or
pepper grass, lambsquarter, poke
wfeed (very young sprouts only; omit
any of the root, as it is poisonous),
purslane or "pusley," sour dock,
smartwood sprouts, milkweed (young
sprouts and young leaves).
Young and tender leaves or sprouts
should always be chosen for greens
or salad, as they are more palatable
and in some cases more wholesome.
Most of us are familiar with a num
ber of wild and cultivated plants
which are used as greens and salads.
As we might suppose, there are many
other green plants which are also
wholesome and which might be used
with profit. Unfortunately there are
some plants which a person who did
not know about them might be tempt
ed to cook for greens which are un
wholesome or even very poisonous,
such as "maypops" or mayapple
leaves, skunk cabbage, hellibore, etc.,
so one should never use "greens" un
less it is kown that they are wholesome.
THE DALLES, Or. Dear Miss Tingle:
Would you please give me a recipe for
chili con came and chili beans and
oblig? MRS. T. P.
I am sorry you have had to wait
so long- for your reply, but your let
ter came very soon after the recipes
you ask for had been published.
Chili con carne can be varied con
siderably to suit personal taste. The
meat may be beef, mu'tton, pork or
chicken cut into small cubes, the sauce
may be flavored and seasoned with
soaked and scraped chili pulp or with
different kinds of chili powder to suit
personal taste. It may be with or
without onions, garlic or tomatoes.
A few raisins or ripe olives may be
added as garnish or may be omitted.
Use the red Mexican (beans. Plain,
dry, boiled rice, every grain separate,
I makes a good accompaniment for this

are soaked in boiling water until soft.

almost the same flavor can be ob

"chili con carne" powders. In any
case, use Spanish pepper powder
rather than paprika in seasoning.
Cut up the meat and bacon, try out
the bacon fat, remove the bacon, add
the oil or marrow (whichever is most
convenient), and brown in this mixed
fat first 'the onion, then the meat
cut in small cubes. Remove the onion
before adding the meat or you will
probably burn the former. Now add
to the meat and fat two tablespoons

INDEPENDENCE, Or.. March 16. Dear
Miss Tingle: Will you please give some
recipes for those who must avoid sweets
and starches, especially? I need some
thing to take the place of dessert. I
find your column very interesting. Sin
cerely yours, MRS. M. B.
I judge you are avoiding starches
and sugars not simply for reduction
purposes, but owing perhaps to dia
betes. In such a case, as I have said
above, general directions may prove
dangerous unless personal tests are
made, with careful weighings of the
food intake. If you apply to the
state library I think you will be able
to secure some helpful and reliable
books on diabetic diets, with many
Not knowing your special limita
tions, I can only suggest such things
as blanc mange made with dilute
cream and water, stiffened with agar
and sweetened with "sweetina." The
flavor could be varied a little. Strong
coffee is useful for such a purpose.
An "imitation tapioca" pudding
can be made by using semi-dissolved
agar with beaten egg yolk and water
with or without a little cream.
If you are allowed any milk you
could use that in junkets sweetened
If you are allowed pumpkin or
squash, the pulp may be made into a
sugarless custard (similar to pie fil
ling) and baked In small buttered
There is also a similar kind of pud
ding to be made with well-washed
cottage cheese (instead of pumpkin)
enriched with egg yolk sweetened
with sweetina and flavored with lem
on juice. This also is baked in
Then you could make little sugar
less macaroons and custards with al
mond meal (if this is allowed) or
with gum gluten. Your doctor and
the books suggested above will be
able to help you more than I can for
your diet is necessarily an individual
matter. Instead of desserts you
should use often plain lettuce salads
with French dressing or mayonnaise.
Cheese balls made with well-washed
cottage cheese could sometimes be
added or use a combination salad
with any of the vegetables that are
included in your special diet list.
over" or specially cooked. Chop the
meat very fine, add to one cup meat
one tablespoon grated Parmesan
cheese, one tablespoon butter, one
beaten egg, a few grains mace or nut
meg and a "hint" of grated lemon
rind. The mixing bowl may be
rubbed with garlic if desired. Season
with pepper and salt and moisten
with a little concentrated gravy if
the meat is very dry. A little chopped
cooked vegetable may be used with
the meat if desired, the whole being
seasoned and flavored rather highly.
Have ready fresh rolled noodle paste,
rolled as thin as possible in a large
square. Take a teaspoon of the pre
pared filling and put it on the paste
about two inches from the edge. Take
other spoonfuls arranging about two
inches apart across the paste. Brush
between and round each with beaten
egg. Fold over the edge of the paste
so as to cover the filling, press down
the edge and cut across the paste.
Then press down and cut between
each spoonful so that you have a
number of little squares filled with
meat, with the edges well pressed to
gether. Repeat until all is used up.
Put the little squares, a few at a time,
into boiling salted water or stock.
Boil about ten minutes or until the
paste is cooked, and remove with a
skimmer. Keep hot and sprinkle with
dry grated Parmesan or other dry
cheese. Serve In rich brown gravy
or in tomato sauce, or In a combina
tion of brown gravy and tomato sauce,
or brush with melted butter. Sprinkle
rather generously with dry grated
cheese, place in a fireproof baking
dish and brown in the oven before
serving, either with or without the
Other fillings may be used.

ALBANY, Or. Dear Miss Tingle: Now
that eggs are bo cheap, would you give
me a recipe for angel food cake, telling
how long it should be baked and if the
pan should be greased, and if it should be
removed from the pan while warm or let
cool first? Could you also tell me some
way to use the yolks of the eggs ?
MRS. B. B. B.
Angel cake One cup egg whites,
one cup flour, one and one-fourth
cups fine granulated sugar, one tea
spoon cream of tartar, vanilla or
other preferred flavoring. Beat the
egg whites until foamy. Add the
cream of tartar and beat until stiff.
Add one-half of the sugar (sifting it
in gradually) and beat until glossy.
Add gradually the remaining sugar
and flavoring. Sift and fold In the
flour previously sifted,1 both before
and after measuring. Bake in an un
greased tube pan 40 to 50 minutes
according to thickness. Be sure it no
longer "whispers" when you take it
from the oven. The oven may be
about the same as for loaf bread. Let
cool in the tin, inverted and support
ed to allow passage of air under
neath. Cover with plain confec
tioner's icing, as above, and do not
cut until the second day.
The yolks may be used for custards,
cream pies or similar desserts, for
sweet or savory sauces (such as
sweet, foamy sauce or "Hollandaise"),
for mayonnaise or other salad dress
ings for either immediate use or for
keeping, for lemon honey (for keep
ing), for golden pound cake or Vene
tian cakes or other small cakes or
cookies where more yolks than
whites are needed. Cakes made with
yolks only are not usually very de
sirable. The yolks may also be hard-
boiled for use In potato salad or in
remoulade or for garnishing curries,
vegetable dishes or chafing dish mixture.

Some Travelers Always
Trouble Other People.
Obnoxious Person Is Sel fish, but
Not Always Consciously Kb.
ARE you the sort of person who
never in any way adds to the dis
comfort of other people when travel
ing:; or are you one of the other kind?
Of course, the obnoxious traveler Is
selfish but not always consciously
so. The fat man 'r. the seat behind
you may not realize at all that he Is
annoying1 because he crackles peanut
shells or rattles his newspaper and
scrapes the back of your head with
it, occasionally. The tired little
mother who lets the children suck
oranges or peel bananas during a hot
and dusty journey may not dream
anybody nearby objects to the per
vasive aroma of the fruit that Is
keeping the youngsters quiet. The
young chap who slouches down in his
seat and drives annoying feet into the
yielding velvet seat-back in front a
most annoying performance to the
person in the next seat may not
know that he Is being obnoxious.
But all these people contribute to the
discomfort and perhaps actual misery
of high-strung, nervous travelers.
Then there is the woman who, hav
ing secured the inside seat near the
window, will not move up when some
one crowds Into the other third of
the seat. And the man who spreads
his newspaper or his knees into the
space which rightfully belongs to his
seatmate. And the fussy woman who
will not quiet down In her berth and
wraps and unwraps paper parcels or
does other audible things when near
by sufferers are trying to get to
sleep. And the fresh-air hog who
flings up the window regardless of
the neuralgic Lady huddled down In
her coat in the seat behind. And th
individual who spreads his dishes and
utensils about in the dining car,
crowding up his table-mats.
There are a hundred ways in which
people can be annoying and obnoxious
travelers, and most of the ways are
thoughtless ways rather than delib
erately disagreeable and selfish ways.
The perfect traveler is the one who
sinks her own personality so thor
oughly that her neighbors never
realize she Is there. She can sit for
two hours in a train in perfect quiet
and this Is more of a proof of breed
ing than poorly bred people ever seem
to realise. Breeding Is control of
natural impulse and restraint of
movement; it is the courtesy that ex
presses unselfishness, though It does
not always prove unselfishness. The
more inconspicuous you are among
strangers, the more perfect is the ex-
,pression of your good breeding.
