If you make yourself this double-frill jabot to wear with your first

really unusual. The stitch Is simple, giving a shell-like effect, and the

SECRETS OF THE SOUP POT
Sou£ may be ai interesting and
ipexpected fks a trayful of ¡appetizers,
" it is served with the thought of
>ng it so. Sometimes we forget
>w well sóup or consomme serves as
-an appetiser at dinner, because so
many of óúr soups are substantial
with vegetables and barley and really
serve as a orte-dish meal.
The soup you select to begin a
dinner should be a clear thin cream
soup or a transparent bouillon. It
should be garnished for a tempting
appearance the same as the fruit
cup or seafood cocktail you might
serve in its place to spur appetites.
A piece of pimento sieved into a
coupe of consomme makes it almost
as dramatic as a canape spread with
caviar! Try a sprig of parsley in the
cream soup. A clam or other seafood
bouillon will gain color and flavor
from a thin slice of lemon clipped on
the edge of - the dish. No consomme
or soup could be insipid, either, if
served with cheese straws or very
4mall dumplings which are dropped
iiito the soup before serving.
Brown bread croutons are an ex-
cellent garnish for a soup made of
brown stock thickened with yolks of
egg and a little cream.
Onion soup needs a dash of grated
Parmesan cheese to bring out its full
flavor, and by the way, this cheese
sprinkled into each soup plate will
raise the simplest white-stock soup to
The making of croutons is one of
the arts which the French practice so
well. They use close-textured, day old
bread sliced about one-third inch
thick and cut it in diced and fancy
shapes. These are fried to a delicate
golden brown, drained thoroughly in
the oven and served dry and crisp.
Most of us find it easier to toast
these little cubes in the oven.
The French cook has another inter-
esting practice whiqfi keeps his Soup
stock or consomme beautifully clear,
without any loss of flavor. He ties
the enriching marrow bone for soup
in a muslin cloth so that the dark
particles of bones and marrow which
break away during the slow cooking
will not get into the liquid.
The secret of all good soup is per-
fect seasoning. If one will keep on
hand small supplies of a great variety
of spices, such as thynte, marjoram,
savory, bay leaves, peppercorns, stir-K
cinnamon, and celery seed, it will be
found that they need not be neg-
lected. Test and taste your soups
yourself, as you make them, until
you hit upon something delightful
and wholly your own. °
