Good directions for cooking cereals will be found on each package.

Many cooked cereals sliced cold, dipped in flour and fried, are fine served with syrup and butter.

Corn Meal Mush

Wet two cupfuls corn meal in one and one-half cupfuls cold water, stir in slowly three and one-half cupfuls boiling water and one-half teaspoonful salt. Cook at least one hour in double boiler. If cooked in a kettle, butter the inside first, to prevent sticking. Serve with syrup, or sugar and cream.

Cook enough mush to have some left to slice and fry. Dip the slices in white of egg to make crisp.

Fried Corn Meal Mush

Cut slices about three-fourths of an inch in thickness from the cold mush, dip on a plate containing flour, and fry in butter. Serve with butter, syrup, or any desired way.

Cream of Wheat when cooked, may be sliced cold and fried like corn mush.
