A Delicious Dessert That Will Appear
at Christmas Dinners.
A new dessert has made its appear
ance which Is as delicious as it U at
tractive In appearance. It can be ci
ther ordered from the confectioners
or made at home, and the latter is
preferable at all times. Vanilla ice
cream, spongo and fruit cake will be
needed. The cckes arc cut from loaves
and should be nn inch thick when
Heed and should fit an oblong mold.
When the cream is frozen to a mush,
pack an inch layer in the mold, then
place the fruit cake on this, then cov
er with another layer of tho cream,
over which lay the sponge cake, and
then add the last cream layer, which
ANIXitiA ICS CREAM WITH SPONGE AND
should fill aud overflow the mold, hay
over this an oiled paper. A buttered
one will do or three thicknesses of
paraffin paper. Put the cover over
this, allowing the paper to come down
over the sides, tic securely in place
and then run melted lard between the
cover and the pan to prevent all pos
sibility of the salt aud Ice leaking in.
Pack In salt nnd Ice for three or four
hours. When ready to serve remove
the coverings, wipe the outside of the
mold with a hot cloth and Invert tbc
mold on to n cold dish, when the
cream loaf will slip out.
An extra addition can be served in
the whipped cream sauce tinted with
yellow or pink, using egg yolk for the
first and a bit of boiled beet Juice in
tho latter Instance, this being placed
In the cream before whipping.
But this dessert Is Just as tasty with
out tho sauce. Should this be found
too much trouble, then the cream can
be dished from tho freezer on to slices
of tho fruit and spongo cake and
Their Greatest Sin.

hell Is not reserved for the wicked in

The Least Understood and Oftenest
Abused Domestic Fruit.
Tho cranberry Is tho least under
stood and the most abused of any of
our domestic fruits. Comparatively
few know Us possibilities. Quite ns
few know how to prepare It In palata
ble form. Tho expression Is common,
"You need n barrel of sugar for a
barrel of cranberries." This Is not true.
It Is not a sugar consumer compared
with most fruits.
If users will make the test they will
discover that more sauce with less
sugar proportionately can be made
from a quart of cranberries than from
a quart of any other kind of berry and
if properly made will be tempting and
toothsome. A barrel of sugar will
sweeten more than three barrcU of
cranberries. A cranberry shortcake
will compare favorably with a straw
berry shortcake. Eaten raw. they aro
a laxative and liver tonic, and, like the
olive, one can cultivate a fondness for
Cranberries are keepers, like the ap
ple, and, like apples, require a cool,
dry place. It Is economy to buy good
berries. Never cook In tin or Iron
ware. Use porcelain, earthenware or
granite. Do not cover with cold water
and allow to simmer, steep and stew
over slow fire. This makes tough
skins, pale, sickly pink or dark, dull
red color and gives acrid flavor.- Use
boiling water, cook rapidly and not
For a good sauce, to one quart of
clean cranberries add one pint granu
lated sugar, one pint of boiling water.
Place Immediately over brisk fire,
stirring enough to mix sugar with wa
ter and coat berries. Cover as soon
as berries begin to swell and pop.
Stand by and mash until every berry
Is broken. Keep them boiling during
this operation. By the time berries
are nil mashed or have boiled fifteen
minutes remove from stove nnd turn
Into china or earthen ware dish. When
cold the result should bo a beautiful
rich red. Jellied sauce.
