Recipe and Helps
by Pauline Murphy

Food saver tip: 
                            If you have 2-3 slices of left over meat, just grind up in small chopper, add some raw vegetables, small amounts such as half stalk of celery, slice of onion and green pepper. Add little seasoning if desired and enough mayonnaise to moisten. Enough for 2-3 sandwiches, or serve on crackers.  A slice or two from the Deli could be added also.

An apology is due from the last issue in regard to the Hot Fudge Pudding.  The amount of baking soda is 2 tsp.  I have found another recipe that is very similar but has less sugar and more water.  Hope you will try it, the recipe is as follows.


Chocolate Pudding Cake

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbls. cocoa
3 Tbls. melted butter, cooled
1 cup all purpose flour, sifted
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients together in 9 inch square pan or glass baking dish.  Stir in milk, butter and vanilla, then spread out in pan.

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup  cocoa
1/2 cup brown sugar
1½ cup Water

Mix topping and sprinkle over batter.  Pour water over all and bake in 350 D. oven for 40-45 minutes  Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, Serves 6-8

Jack Horner Caramel Apples

8 medium apples with sticks. Combine in heavy saucepan 15 oz. can condensed milk, ½ cup sugar, ½ cup light corn syrup,1/3 cup packed brown sugar.  Cook to 234 D. (soft ball) stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in 1 Tbls. Butter, and 1 ½ tsp. Vanilla.  Quickly dip in and twirl apples Cool on waxed paper or greased cookie sheet. Soft and good, easier to eat than regular caramel, but about the same flavor.

Simply Roasted Pork

Serve cooked meat with roasted red skin potatoes or mashed potatoes, broccoli spears or collard greens, and warm dinner rolls.
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper (fresh ground if possible)
1 (3# boneless pork loin trimmed)
Cooking spray. 

Preheat oven to 425 D. Place preserves in small saucepan over medium low heat and cook for 10 minutes.  Combine seasonings and rub over pork loin. Place in shallow roasting pan.  Bake for 35 minutes, brush ¼ of preserves over roast, bake 10 minutes more then add remaining preserves and bake 15 more minutes.  Let stand 10 min. before slicing.  12-14 servings of 3 oz. each.  Apple jelly can be used instead of apricot.

Cheese Biscuits

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in cheese.  Add buttermilk, stir just until dough clings together.  On a lightly floured surface, knead dough lightly until easy to handle.  Roll into 12 inch circle.  Cut into eight wedges.  Begin at wide end of sedge and roll toward point.
Place biscuits point down on a greased baking  sheet.  Bake 450 D for  12-14 minutes. Yield 8 biscuits

11 Peter 3 :17 & 18 
                                Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  To him be glory both now and for ever.  Amen.
