Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD filday, Auguil 14, 17X0 HOME OF THE WEEK By rSAHULLK YOUNG. FKIIS HKHHS Mow to Dry nucl Use TJERBS can turn good cook- ing into gourmet treats and make it an enjoyable art. An old Arab proverb states, "How can a man die if lie has sage in lu's Herbs should enhance, not overpower the flavor of a dish. It is better to use sparingly and if neces- sary, increase to suit your taste. The most common ones used are mint, sage, parsley, thyme and dill. There are many others that add a delightful scent awl taste to a dish. You can always purchase herbs but the ones from your own garden always seem 'to have that "something special" about them. You can use these aromatic plants fresh or dried. Most of them are usually at their peak during August. When herbs are dried the flavor tends to be some- what stronger than when fresh. If you have herbs growing in your garden a few simple hints and recipes follow. The leaves and seeds may both be used, which should be harvested at the proper stage to secure the finest flavor. Leaves are best picked before the flower buds open and the seeds are har- vested when they turn a brown color. The leaves of herbs nray be harvested at any time to use fresh. Wash and shake out as much water as possible and store iu a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Most will keep two to three weeks. You may also freeze them. Wash and drain as before and then chop. Spread out on trays and freeze, then put into proper airtight containers and store in freezer. Storage time is approximately one year. For drying, there are several methods. After washing and draining off excess water they may be tied in small bundles and hung in a dark, airy place and dried as quickly as possi- ble, especially mint 'and sweet basil. Or they may be spread on a rack or screen and turned every day or so to allow circu- lation to all surfaces. When dry, rub the leaves from the stems and pack in air-tight con- tainers, away from direct sun- light and heat. Common Green Mint or Spearmint, to me, has one of the most refreshing scents of all the herbs. When I go out into the garden I often crush a leaf with my fingers just to get a "whiff" of the aromatic fragrance. When making mint sauce, sprinkle a little sugar on the leaves before chopping. This will help to cut them finer with less trouble. Use about half a dozen sprigs and put in a dish with the same amount of sugar lumps. Arid 2 tbsps. of boiling water, stir and leave for about half an hour. The boiling water helps keep the mint a bright green color. Then add 1 cup of vinegar. Mint with new peas or roast lamb is most delicious. Use also in jelly making. Sage is an old stand-by used in stuffings for chicken, tur- key, etc. and is supposed to be one of the most health-giving of all herbs. A little also adds zest to such meat dishes as pork, goose, stews and some soups. Parsley is one of the commonest of herbs. It is used as a garnish and seasoning for salads, meats, fish and adds flavor to soups, vegetables and sauces. Thyme has a strong, TCHEN DIHIHS TTJ DESIGN No. CH-23j_ Main Floor Uppsr .540 Lower incl.garage 506 HOMOGRAF COMPANY OF CANADA JARVIS AT KING E., TORONTO 1. ONTARIO.

Dill is used mostly in pickle making, but gives a delightful flavor to meat sauces, salads, tomato dishes, potato dishes and fish. Anise has a licorice-like flavor and goes especially well in candies, cookies and punches. Sweet Basil has a slightly minty taste and is used in tomato recipes and Italian dishes. Nice also in beef stew. Try it also in ham- burgers, salads and with fish. Florence Fennel adds a plea- sant taste to fish, soups, salads and sauces. Marjoram is a member of the mint family and makes lamb more tasty and adds interest to soups, stews, stuffings, scrambled eggs and tomato juice. Chives are some- what milder than onions and go well with cream cheese, scram- bled eggs, sour cream (for baked salads and sauces. There are other herbs but these are the most popular and easily-grown ones. Remem- ber to use all herbs sparingly experiment until you become acquainted with them. Add herbs to soups and stews in the last hour of cooking. Do not overdo by using in too many dishes. If a recipe calls for a "bou- quet this is a small bunch of Iresh or dried herbs tied together and dropped into cooking, tying the string onto the handle of the pot. You can use 2 sprigs of parsley and thyme with 2 bay leaves, or parsley, drives, basil and thyme, or chives, celery leaves and tarragon. There are several combinations one could use to suit your own personal taste.

If you have sown your seed in the garden and it is up fairly well, plant some sure the neck or thickening just below the leaves is slightly above the surface of the soil.

Our designers have captured all the spaciousness of colonial styling and eliminated the in- convenience of long flights of stairs in this impressive home. With attached garage, the col- onial exterior of fieldstone and woodsiding, this tome could easily belong in an old eastern city. Again, the areas are di- vided for maximum con- venience and utility. A partial basement and laundry are de- signed for the lower level with living dining room and kitchen situated on the middle level. Upstairs are three bedrooms. Plan shows a fireplace and chimney on the end wall of the living room. The blueprints in- clude this feature also an optional full basement beneath the living-kitchen area. Con- struction is frame with stone accent. Could be built on a flat lot. Aid For Skiers Buried Iu Snow An aid for skiers has been developed by an American firm. It is an electronic safety de- rice, seven and a half inches long and slim enough to be car- ric' in a parka. The instrument emits a beep- ing signal that can be heard even though buried under sev- eral feet of snow. The same device can be switched to receive emitted beeps. The device is now being eval- uated by ski patrols and snow wardens and is not, as yet, commercially available. Red Planet Mars is known as the "red planet." It looks red because the material of which its sur- face is made reflects red light better than it does light of any other color. Two-Car Garage Is Easy To Build If you've got the width in your driveway, a two car gar- age is far better than a single for a number of reasons, and if you build it yourself you'll be surprised to "learn that the cost of materials frequently costs less than a one car gar- age bought ready-made. This illustrated 68-page book outlines with step-by-step direc- tions the simplest method of construction. Measuring 20 x 24 feet, the garage not only has ample space for two cars but also accommodates your power mower, gardening tools and other equipment.

Toronto Star Syndicate) New Seed Squares Promising To Grow Trees Quickly PromisinK results have been obtained in the use of seed squares in the afforestation work of a Swedish cellulose company. A pine seed square consists of a plastic-covered, hard-com- pressed piece of peat with about 10 pine seeds in it. In its original state, it is completely dry and the seeds are dormant. But when the square is placed on the damp ground, it absorbs water and swells. The peat, which contains plant nu- trients, then forms an excellent germination substratum and the sprouts penetrate through cuts in the plastic cover. Since plastic prevents evap- oration anct abosrbs sun radia- tion, the plants develop as fast as in plant nurseries. The squares can he produced all year round, put out in win- ter as well as summer and planting work is faster than traditional afforestation work, since the squares need only be placed on the ground.
