    Tempting flavor and aroma make such a dif­ ference in all cooking!

    New flavors and new recipes not only add to the family's enjoyment, but enhance one’s reputa­ tion as a hostess. Luscious flavor and aroma also build up health by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion.

    The recipes gathered in this book are delicious, healthful, inexpensive and easy to make. Manv of them are novel, too. I sincerely hope they will aid you in serving tempting, attractive meals to your family and guests.

    In preparing flavorful dishes, you will find Virginia Dare Double Strength Extracts very helpful; they give better flavor and aroma because they are made from the choicest fruits, flowers, spices, and vegetables. These flavors do not “bake out” or “freeze out,” because they are twice government strength requirements. They are economical, too, for you need use only halj as much as of ordinary extracts.

    Color, too, makes food much more appealing,— whether it is frozen desserts, gelatines, icings, or sandwich spreads. And now you can color them daintily and appropriately with Virginia Dare Colorettes. These pure tablets are government- certified, inexpensive and easy to use. They come in red, green, yellow, orange and blue. Other colors may be made by combining these colors when dissolving the tablets in warm water.

    For lavender, dissolve and mix a Blue Colorette with part of a Red Colorette. For a pale tint like pink, use part of a Red Colorette.

  • That old-fashioned flavor . . . of Sherry is now obtainable in Virginia Dare Sauce Newburg (Cooking Sherry). Prepared from a carefully selected, "baked” Sherry, Sauce Newburg gives delicate flavor and mouth­ watering aroma to many otherwise ordinary dishes—such as soups, gravies, prunes, cheese and egg dishes. In accordance with government requirements 1 of salt has been added. In using your own recipes, omit the salt. Before adding to any sweet dish, stir a little cornstarch in Virginia Dare Sauce Newburg. This neutralizes the salt taste and the dishes will have the luscious Sherry flavor by the time of serving. Always remem­ ber, too, that Sherry is such a delicate, volatile flavor that it should generally be added just before taking the dish from the stove.
