FREEZE IN THE HEAT OF SUMMER "A freezer offers the homemaker convenience in the form of a readily available food supply ond bonuses in the form of well-balanced and varied meals." Who said thai? The Home Economics Branch of the Alberto Department of Agriculture said that, and much more, in .the booklet, 'Preserve By Freezing'. Send for this fountain of ideas, ask for No. 1156. One of the many hondy ways that a freezer helps the homemaker is in dessert preparation: Make up a balcii of pie pastry, fill them with Ihe nice, chunky E. D. Smith apple filling. The 100 01. size will fill five of the 8" size. Store these, covered, in Ihe freezer and bake as needed, perhaps in the cool of Ihe morning.
