Apple Tarts

Mrs. H. A. Dillenbeck.

Apple Salad

Dressing - Four tablespoons vinegar and 2 eggs; put in double boiler; stir and cook until creamy; take form fire; add 1 tablespoonful butter, 2 teaspoons sugar and a pinch of salt; when cold add one cup cream, whipped until stiff; slice apples; add to dressing to prevent discoloring and 1/2 cup nut meats; serve at once. Mrs. George Perkins.

Apples sliced, celery cut in cubes, cold boiled ham cut in thin pieces, sweet pepper (red) cut in pieces, mayonnaise dressing poured over all. Serve with or without lettuce. Mrs. C. W. Estey.

A Winter Salad

Pare, and cut into thin, very narrow strips as many hard apples (Spies or Spitzenbergs, preferable), as you have people to serve. Slice equally thin and add to them 1/2 a Spanish onion; mix thoroughly with these mayonnaise dressing to which a little sweet cream has been added. Serve on a lettuce leaf. Mrs. Gray.

Apple Jelly

One peck of snow apples, 6 or 8 large quinces, 2 quarts of cranberries; cut the apples and quinces quite small; add the cranberries and put not quite enough water to cover.
