BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Conducted by SALLY OREMLAND HOT WATER METHOD? (Mrs. D. R Bismarck) I have heard of the hot water method of making pie crust, but don't know how it's done. Has any- one tried it? I understand it al- most insures a flaky crust. CHICKEN HINT (P. L Bismarck) Here is a suggestion which I would like to pass on. One day I found I had no shortening in which to fry a chicken, except some left over from frying doughnuts. As that was the best fried chicken ever, I have continued to use it. You should be careful, however, to fry at a lower heat than usual, because the sweet- ness in the shortening is more like- ly to scorch. Strain the shortening after frying the doughnuts, of course, and discard the bottom. TRAVEL WITH TOTS (Mrs. T. G Mandan) This is for the lady wl~o asked about traveling with children. Go ahead and make the leap bravely-- it's never as bad as you think it's going to be. We have just made a 2300 mile round trip in very hot weather. Our baby is seven months old. Comfort is of the utmost import- ance. The heat kept our child from sleeping too much, but when he did, he slept on the front seat between us. (He sIightly overlapped on both side unfortunately!) When he is larger, we'll build up the back seat so he can sleep there. Eating arrangements can pose a problem. Most restaurants furnish- ed high chairs, some times even special spoons and bibs. One fried chicken place presented our child with a "cake"---a marshmallow with a birthday candle glowing on it. It is best to stick to family restau- rants. We went to a gourmet rest- aurant one Sunday, found every- one dining out in great style. The baby promptly began dropping tea- spoons on the tile floor, everyone stared at us and after devouring our dinner in no time flat, we rushed out. Most motels have cribs. While our baby didn't fall promptly into slum- ber (do rock the poor little travel- sugar. 2 teaspoons baking powder, ~/: cup milk, 5 tablespoons butter or vegetable shortening, l egg.

Though much cannnig is done as an economy measure, sur- veys s~'ow that the medium income families are more likely to can food than ones with lower incomes. Do some home sanning this sum- mer. suggests Ruth Dawson, NDAC extention nutrRionist. To safeguard your family against food spoilage, ~se a pressure cooker for all veget- able~g .~I~T condition.and be ~ure the cooker i~s in Vegetables are low in acid and require processing at temeratures high enouffh to destroy harmful or- ganisms. By processing vegetables in a pressure cooker, a temperature of 240 degrees is reached at ten lbs. pressure. "Be sure ,you know how to oper- ate a pressure cooker. First the directions that came with it. Here are a few ,general tips: Use a basket or rack in the canner to hold era, it's hard on 'era!), he at least the jars; never stack one Jar on top had a good rest when he fell asleep of another unless the canner is e- in a nice crib.

Cool drinks of water and occa- sional spongings off help combat the heat. As a final word of en- couragement. I hope all traveling mamas will take courage from a friend of mine. She went from Mil- waukee, Wig, to Los Angeles Calif, with two small boys, three dogs and a horse! Lived to tell the story, too. BROWNIE RECIPE? (Mrs. D. H Bismarck) Would some reader share with me any reeipes they have for brownies calling for brown sugar instead of white sugar? S * $ SKH2LET STICKING; P|CKI~ RECEPE? (Mrs. M. R Mandan) May I add to the suggestions on keeping a skillet from sticking? Our old cast iron skillet regularly turns out bacon and scrambled eggs for breakfast and often gravy at night. The eggs, beaten with milk and cooked in some of the .bacon dripp- ings, seldom stick if I use a spoon with a light hand, pushing the done part aside to let the raw egg get under to cook. careful not to scrape the bottom. But when it's sausage we're having, there is more of a "sticking" problem. To combat this I cover the skillet after the eggs are cooke~ and the heat turned off. In a minute or two, the residue will have steamed free and will lift rig~ Out of the skillet. A whisk with paper toweling cleans it ready for the next meal. After making gravy, ! rinse the skillet out under hot water immedi- ately, using a brush and soap if needed. I've found that any pan is much easier to clean if tackled while it's still quite hot--and the family can Wait another few minutes to eat while this job is being done. Furthermore, the big things are then out of the sink when the table. ware comes along after the meal. Would somebody pass along s re- cipe for sweet pickles? (I don't mean bread and butter pickles). S $ SWEET POTATO DISH (Mrs. M. F Mandan) I hope the following recipe will help Mrs. A. B Mandan who is looking for a sweet potato dish recipe. It may not be what you are looking for, but If not, try it anyway. It really is delicious. Cook, peel and slice a couple of large sweet potatoes and cut two slices of pineapple into cubes. Ar- range pineaple and potatoes in a1- ternate layers in a baking dish. Malt 3 tablespoons of butter, stir into it 4 tablespo0ns flour. Blend smooth- ly. Add 4 Or 5 tablespoons of pine- apple juice and cook, stirring all baka for ~bout 20 minutes in a mod- erate oven. This is enough for two people. i 8 @ BERRY E~,SSI~tT8 ((Mrs. G. A Bismarok) Recently someone asked for re- cipes for berry desserts. Here is one Of our family favorite:. Blueberry Roly-Poly: Two cups flour, ~ teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons Fasten the canner cover securely so the steam escapes only ~hrough the open petcock. Let steam esoape at least seven to the minutes from thi- petcock before closing it, as this drives out all the air and replaces it wi~h live steam. '~Phen close the petcock and bring the pressure ,up quickly to the d~- sired number of pounds. Usually, ten pounds pressure is required for vegetables. Count the processing time from the moment the required pressure is indicated on-the gauge." Keep the pressure constant dur- in& the processing by adusting the heat, Miss Dawson explains. This will help to prevent loss of liquid from the jars. Be careful not to over-process or the vegetables will .become to sofa. When through, al- low the hand on the gauge ~o go backto zero before opening the petcock and then open the petcock ver slowly. Remove the cover and allow the jars to stand a few minutes before removing. Cool ~e jars right side up and follow directions for seal- ing. 'D.
