For The Housewife

Melted butter will not make a good cake.

Veal should be white, dry and close grained.

The colder eggs are the quicker they will froth.

To make good pastry the ingredients must be ice cold.

Nutmegs should be grated at the blossom end first.

A brush dipped in sale water should be used in cleaning bamboo furniture.

Good macaroni is of a yellowish ting, does not break readily in cooking and swells to two or three times its bulk.
