Hot Weather---Cool Food

Table of Contents

As hot weather arrives it brings with it another phase of the ever present question, "What shall we have to eat?" Now we ask- What can we have that's cool and appetizing? Ice creams and ices are easily prepared and if packed well can be prepared ahead of time and are ready to serve when we need them. For breakfast in hot weather try ripe fruit, either alone or combined, sweetened and chilled in the freezer, without using the beaters. Surround the can with one part salt and three parts ice and let stand about an hour. Berries, for example, may be sprinkled with powdered sugar, mashed to fine pulp, chilled in the freezer and served with cream. This may be served for breakfast or as dessert.
