- Morning is the best time to eat fruit, and fresh fruit is then in . the best condition to be eaten. When berries of any kind can be got fresh with the morning dew, fill the finest glass dish, adding a few fresh leaves, for a center-piece, on the breakfast table. Serve in saucers accompanied with fine white sugar (pulverized is the best and most economical for all purposes) and fresh cream if you have it, but never substitute skim milk. The berries will be very nice with only sugar, There is a vast difference between fruit with cream and fruit with milk. Cream is easily digested and slow to sour, while just the contrary is true of milk after the cream has been removed. Yet we have known people to live after eating strawberries aud buttermilk, and we have also known people to die after eating hot apple dumplings and cold milk. If you happen to be the fortunate possessor of a berry patch, let the children go out before breakfast and pick and eat. Properly trained children will not abuse this privilege.
