    • CREAMED OYSTERS.
      .

      One quart oysters, one pint of cream or sweet milk, thicken with a little flour as for gravy. When cooked pour in the oysters with liquor, pepper, salt and butter. Have platter with nicely browned toast. Pour creamed oysters over and serve hot.

      CAULIFLOWER PICKLE.



      Six good-sized cauliflowers, half gallon vinegar, one pound mustard, two cups sugar, three red peppers. Stearn the cauliflowers fifteen minutes and put in a jar with the red peppers, dissolve the mustard in water, add vinegar and sugar, let come to a boil and pour over the cauliflowers.

      CORN OYSTERS.

      To one pint of grated corn add two eggs well beaten, one small teacupful flour, half teacupful butter; salt and pepper. Mix these well and fry a nice brown. A table-spoonful will make the size of an oyster.

      EGG BALLS FOR SOUP.


      Four boiled eggs, one raw egg, one teaspoonful flour, some salt, pepper and parsley. Mash the yelks of boiled eggs with the raw yelk. Add flour, salt, pepper and parsley. Make into balls and boil two minutes.


      NOODLE.


      Beat up an egg and add as much flour as will make it a stiff dough, roll it out in three sheets, flour it and roll it round closely, then with a sharp knife, cut it off the end like shavings, flour these to prevent them sticking, add them to the soup when boiling. Cook for ten minutes.


      OYSTER FRITTERS.


      Take the largest oysters, drain from the liquor and wipe dry. Whisk six eggs very light, one cup of fine sifted flour, and, by degrees, one pint of rich milk and a little grated nutmeg. Beat to a smooth batter.

      Have the pan very hot, put in lard or butter, and when it begins to froth drop in small ladlefuls of batter, and place an oyster in the middle of them. Fry a nice brown and send to table hot.

      OYSTER PIE.



      Make a rich puff paste, roll out twice as thick as for fruit pie, line a pudding dish and fill with dry crumbs or light crackers, butter the edges that you may be able to lift the upper crust without breaking, cover the mock pie, ornament at the edge, cook the oysters as for a stew, only at the last beat in two eggs and thicken with cracker crumbs, time them that the paste will be ready to receive them, lift the crust, pour them in. Serve hot.

      CREAMED OYSTERS.


      One quart oysters, one pint of cream or sweet milk, thicken with a little flour as for gravy. When cooked pour in the oysters with liquor, pepper, salt and butter. Have platter with nicely browned toast. Pour creamed oysters over and serve hot.

      OYSTERS FRIED.



      Select the largest oysters, take off all bits of shell and wipe quite dry. Have ready some bread crumbs or grated crackers. Season with salt and pepper. Beat the yelks of two eggs and add a little cream. Dip the oysters in the egg and then in the bread crumbs. Fry in plenty of hot lard and butter till a light brown. Serve hot. Fine oatmeal may be used for frying instead of cracker crumbs.1a
