Bygone News - Cookery Cooking tips en Economy In Tea <p>Do you find your tea allowance too small? Read what Mrs Hill, Thornliebank says, and learn how to make more of it: - Instead of putting two or three spoonfuls of tea into the pot, fill a saucepan with water and let it boil, then put in one spoonful of tea and let it boil for one minute, not longer. Stain into a pot leaving the leaves in the saucepan. Fill up with cold water, and bring to the boil again, when you will have a second infusion ready for the teapot. Where there is a large family considerable saving can be effected by making tea in this way.<span class="read-more"><a href="/hints-and-tips/economy-tea"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> Cookery Domestic / Household 1914-1918 Mon, 03 Feb 2014 15:52:02 +0000 lynne.davidson 1183 at To Keep Parsley Fresh <p>Mrs Mc., Aberdeen - Instead of keeping parsley in water, which makes it turn yellow, put it in an air-tight jar in a cool place.
