Baked Asparagus & Oranged Strawberries in 1920

Salt Lake Telegram, Salt Lake, Utah June 1, 1920, page 15

Baked Asparagus

  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • salt
  • paprika

Wash asparagus and cut into half-inch pieces. Cook in boiling salted water till tender. Asparagus is very susceptible to salt, so 1/2 teaspoon will be enough for one bunch of asparagus. Melt butter, stir in flour and add milk slowly. Beat eggs and add. Add drained asparagus. Turn into a buttered baking dish and bake 15 minutes in a hot oven.

Oranged Strawberries

  • 1 quart berries
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 oranges

Wash and hull berries. Put a layer of berries in a deep dish. Sprinkle with sugar, add another layer of berries and sugar and continue until all is used. Pour over the juice of the oranges. Let stand on ice from one to two hours.

Even philosophers, artists, poets– be their hair ever so long– eat! –Mary
