"Most of the stories from Mi

like that make a sad show of
themselves when they talk about

Fruit cocktails are
delicious and good to serve
EVERY time you serve a fruit cocktail, you bring
enjoyment and health to your table. Every time
you cut up, say a grapefruit, some pineapple, an orange,
a banana sprinkle it all with powdered or confectioner's
sugar, and let it stand a little you make that cocktail
so delicious that it can mean even more to health.
The sugar dissolves and blends the flavors of the fruits.
It is this blending power of sugar that families rely on
so much. Sugar adds to the enjoyment of combinations
of the health-foods. Then a sprinkling of sugar accents
the flavor of a single health-food . . . accents the flavor
of strawberries, for example . . . sharpens up the flavor of
peas when they cook.
Two fruits, two vegetables, are the daily rule. Use these
two powers of sugar to give zest to their flavors to
make them more inviting. The best cooks are generous
with sugar. The Sugar Institute.
