Ration Hint of the Day - Number Twenty-five

Ration Hint No. 25

When making pastry -

Flour must be dry and free from any lumps.
Shortening can be butter, lard or dripping, or a mixture of these.
Water must be very cold.
Baking powder should be added to short pastry mixture only.

Sugar.... Add 1 teaspoon of fine white sugar to each 1/2 lb flour for sweet dishes.

Mixing.... Except for wholemeal pastry, which absorbs more liquid, always mix pastry with a minimum of liquid to retain it's crispness of texture.
