Baked Beets
Beets are far better baked than boiled, though it takes a longer time to cook properly. French cooks bake them slowly six hours in a covered dish, the bottom of which is lined with well-moistened rye straw; however, they may be baked on the oven grate, like potatoes. Wipe dry after washing, and bake slowly. They are very nice served with a sauce made with equal quantities of lemon juice and whipped cream, with a little salt.

Berry Toast
Canned stawberries, blueberries, and blackberries may be made into an excellent dressing for toast.
Turn a can of well-kept berries into a colander over an earthen dish, to separate the juice from the berries. Place the juice in a porcelain kettle and heat to boiling. Thicken to the consistency of cream with cornstarch rubbed smooth in a little water; a tablespoonful of flour to the pint of juice will be about the right proportion. Add the berries and boil up just sufficiently to cook the flour and heat the berries; serve hot. If cream for moistening the zwieback is not obtainable, a little juice may be reserved without thickening, and heated in another dish to moisten the toast; or if preferred, the fruit may be heated and poured over the dry zwieback without being thickened, or it may be rubbed through a colander as for Apricot Toast.

Fried Artichokes (Gouffe)
Ingredients-6 artichokes, 3 tablespoonfuls of oil, pepper and salt to taste, 3 eggs, ½ gill of vinegar, 1 pint of water, 3 oz. of flour.
Mode -Remove the leaves, cut the artichokes into fine slices, as thin as a card, and throw them into a basin with the vinegar and water to whiten them. Drain off the water, and season with 1 pinch of salt and 1 dash of pepper. Break 3 eggs into a basin, add 3 tablespoonfuls of salad oil and the flour, mix thouroughly, and pour over the artichokes, stirring them with the hand lightly so as to cover every portion of them with the mixture. Fry very gently of a light gold colour, drain on blotting paper, and pile them up in a white napkin. Garnish with fried parsley, and serve.

Bakewell Pudding
Ingredients-¼ lb. of puff-paste, 5 eggs, 6 oz. of sugar, ¼ lb. of butter, 1 oz. of almonds, jam.
Mode -Cover a dish with thin paste and put over this a layer of any kind of jam, half an inch thick; put the yolks of 5 eggs into a basin with the white of 1, and beat these well; add the sifted sugar, the butter, which should be melted, and the almonds, which should be well pounded; beat all together until well mixed, then pour it into the dish over the jam and bake for 1 hour in a moderate oven.
