number of those "shops" has in

cooked with a soup bone, Miss
Case comments. They also can be
used in cutlets and loaves. Dried
beans can be baked, boiled and
made into balls and fried. Re
cipes for these methods are giv
en in circular HE 1751, "Recipes
for Meat Saving," which is av
ailable free of charge from this
office. This circular also con
tains suggestions on the use of
lentils, nuts and cheese.
Miss Case adds that fish is a
complete protein food that may
be used as an adequate body
builder in place of meat. Salt
water seafoods are particularly
valuable for their iodine content
which helps to prevent common
types of goiter.
Most fish is improved by short
quick cooking. It should be serv
ed as soon as possible after cook
ing. Freshness of fish is import
ant and is indicated by red gills,
clear eyes and elastic firm flesh.
Fish may be prepared by fry
ing, baking, creaming, boiling in
court bouillon, planking, stuff
ing; also in chowders, loaves,
souffles, timbales, salads, frit
ters and pies. Recipes for these
methods are contained in circu
lar HE 2085, "Fish Cookery,"
which is available free of charge
at this office.
