Beating Eggs

A teaspoonful of cold water added to the white of an egg, makes it whip more quickly, as well as increase in quantity.

A pinch of salt will make white of an egg whip more quickly.

Add a pinch of cream of tartar while whipping white of egg, to keep from falling afterward.

How To Preserve Eggs

Add one quart fresh slaked lime to two gallons of water, pour into a cask and put in the eggs till ready for use. They will keep for months.

Eggs may be kept for months in table salt.

Or to three gallons of water add one pint fresh slaked lime and one-half pint table salt. Keep the eggs always covered in the brine.

Egg Substitute

One tablespoonful of corn starch is equal to one egg. Try it in doughnuts.

Unused yolks should be put in a cold place in an uncovered glass of water, where they will keep several days.

If a small piece of shell gets in a broken egg, take a piece of shell and the smaller piece will adhere to it, so it may be easily removed.

When a bit of yolk gets in with the white in separating the parts, touch the yolk with a piece of dry cloth and it will adhere to it.

1 3/4 cupfuls bread crumbs

2 cupfuls milk

1/2 cupful melted butter 1/2 teaspoonful salt a little pepper
