* A tablespoon of butter or oil added to the cooking water for pasta will keep the water from boiling over
* All vegetables that grow above the ground should be put on to cook in rapidly boiling water
* All vegetables that grow below the ground should be put on to cook in cold water *
* The addition of parsley in a recipe containing garlic will offset the aftertaste and odor.
*Ginger will accomplish the same thing in Oriental recipes.
*Whipped butter is more attractive, easier to spread, and one tends to use less. !
(although whipped butter is more expensive at the market, you can whip your own with your electric mixer and enjoy the difference without the expense.)
*Relishes were the colonial substitute for salads. To "eat with relish" as the saying goes, is to enjoy indeed, and Americans are the greatest users of relish in the world.

Though the Jordan Marsh Bakery was well known for its delicious Blueberry Muffins, another of their equally famous desserts were
"Jordan Marsh Almond Macaroons "
Copycat recipe for Almond Macaroons that were sold at
the Gilchrist Department Store in Boston, MA.
Similar to Almond Macaroons sold by the Jordan Marsh Dept Store.
1/2 lb (1 cup) almond paste
1 cup confectioner's sugar
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla Granulated sugar as needed
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, chop the almond paste. Add the confectioner's sugar. Mix with your fingers until blended well. Add the egg whites, one at a time, blending well after each addition. Add the salt and vanilla. The dough will be soft but will hold its shape when dropped from a spoon.
Put the dough in a pastry bag with a plain, round decorating tip. Line ungreased baking sheets with parchment paper. Pipe the dough into rounds about an inch apart on the cookie sheets. Sprinkle the cookies with granulated sugar. Bake for 20 minutes To remove the cookies, slide the parchment paper onto a damp cloth, then gently loosen the cookies with a spatula. Place the cookies on a wire rack to cool completely.
