Now that the price of meat has gone past the contents of most purses, it is well to secure the most one can for the money expended. An ordinary beef heart, if properly prepared, makes a tasty Dinner for a number of persons. There is no waste to a heart and the scales are not weighed down by bone. First, soak the heart for about twelve hours in salted water with a tablespoonful of vinegar added. Wash and drain. Put on stove with enough water to cover and let boil for about half an hour. Remove while boiling hard, and without lifting cover put in fireless cooker for from eight to twelve hours according to the age of the beef. If twelve hours is needed, it is better to reheat once during that time. Or, simmer on stove for five hours. Now, make a dressing as for a fowl and stuff the heart and bake one hour in a hot oven. Set the liquor away to cool, skim and use for soup stock. - Mrs. J. V. Roach, Wisconsin.
