(Pickles And Relishes) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Boil the corn, cut it off the cobs, and pack in jars in alternate layers
of salt and corn. Use plenty of salt in packing. When you wish to cook
it soak in water overnight. Pack the corn in this way: First a layer of
salt, half an inch deep; then about two inches of corn; then salt again,
and so on. The top layer must be salt. Spread two inches of melted
butter over the top layer and bind with strong perforated paper
(perforate the paper with a pin). Keep in a cool cellar.
Use none but the best vinegar, and whole spices for pickling. If you
boil vinegar with pickles in bell metal do not let them stand in it one
moment after taken from the fire, and be sure that your kettle is well
scoured before using. Keep pickles in glass, stoneware, or wooden pails.
Allow a cup of sugar to every gallon of vinegar; this will not sweeten
the pickles, but helps to preserve them and mellows the sharpness of the
vinegar. Always have your pickles well covered with vinegar or brine.

Corn au Gratin

Score down twelve ears of boiled corn, and with the back of a knife
press out the kernels. Put them into a baking dish with a large
piece of butter, salt, pepper, a finely chopped green pepper and a
tablespoonful of grated Parmesan or Gruyere cheese. Place in a hot
oven until just browned and serve immediately.

Other Recipes


Take a can of corn or six ears of corn. Run a sharp knife down through
the center of each row of kernels, and with the back of a knife press
out the pulp, leaving the husk on the cob. Break the cobs and put them
on to boil in sufficient cold water to cover them. Boil thirty minutes
and strain the liquor. Return the liquor to the fire, and when boiling
add the corn pulp and bay leaf. Cook fifteen minutes; add the cream
sauce and serve.
Place two cups of milk, two cups of water, one small onion, salt and
pepper to taste in a saucepan, and boil for ten minutes, add two
herrings which have been previously soaked and cut in small pieces; cook
until herring is tender.

Other Recipes


Put corned beef into cold water; using enough to cover it well; let it
come slowly to the boiling-point; then place where it will simmer only;
allow thirty minutes or more to each pound. It is improved by adding a
few soup vegetables the last hour of cooking.
If the piece can be used a second time, trim it to good shape; place it
again in the water in which it was boiled; let it get heated through;
then set aside to cool in the water, and under pressure, a plate or deep
dish holding a flat-iron being set on top of the meat. The water need
not rise above the meat sufficiently to wet the iron. When cooled under
pressure the meat is more firm and cuts better into slices.
Cabbage is usually served with hot corned beef, but should not be boiled
with it.

Other Recipes


Free the corn from husks and silk; have a kettle of water boiling hard;
drop the corn into it and cook ten minutes (or longer if the corn is not
young). If a very large number of ears are put into the water they will
so reduce the temperature that a longer time will be needed. In no case,
however, should the corn be left too long in the water, as overcooking
spoils the delicate flavor.

Other Recipes


Corn is frequently cut from the cob after it is cooked and served in
milk or butter; but by this method much of the flavor and juke of the
corn itself is wasted; It is better to cut the corn from the cob before
cooking. With a sharp knife cut off the grains, not cutting closely
enough to remove any of the woody portion of the skins. Then with a
knife press out all the pulp and milk remaining in the cob; add this to
the corn; season well with salt, pepper and butter; add a little more
milk if the corn is dry; cook, preferably in the oven, for about ten
minutes, stirring occasionally. If the oven is not hot, cook over the

Other Recipes


To one can of corn take one tablespoon of butter, one-half cup milk;
sprinkle one tablespoon of flour over these; stir and cook about five
minutes, until thoroughly hot. Season to taste and serve hot.

Other Recipes


Butter well a deep baking dish, holding a quart or more. In the bottom
place a layer of potatoes, sliced thin, then a layer of corn, using
one-half the contents of a can. On this sprinkle a little grated onion
and season with salt, pepper and bits of butter. Add another layer of
potatoes, then the rest of the corn, seasoning as before, and cover the
whole with a layer of cracker crumbs. Dot well with butter, pour on milk
until it comes to the top, and bake three-quarters of an hour. Use
cooked potatoes, having them cold before slicing.

Other Recipes


Mix together one cup of cornmeal and one teaspoon of salt, and add one
cup of cold water gradually, stirring until smooth. Pour this mixture
into two cups of boiling; water in a double boiler and cook from three
to five hours. Serve hot with cream and sugar.

Other Recipes


Put left-over mush into a dish and smooth it over the top. When cold cut
into slices one-half inch thick. Dip each slice into flour. Melt
one-half teaspoon of drippings in a frying-pan and be careful to let it
get smoking hot. Brown the floured slices on each side. Drain if
necessary and serve on a hot plate with syrup.

Other Recipes


Take one-half cup of canned corn and chop it very fine (or the same
amount cut from the cob). Add to that the yolk of one egg, well beaten
with pepper and salt to taste, and two tablespoons of cream. Beat the
white of the egg very stiff and stir in just before cooking. Have the
pan very hot and profusely buttered. Pour the mixture on, and when
nicely browned, turn one half over the other, as in cooking other
