mission was to allow the English army
officials to know Major General Bar Barlow,

Many times during 'he winter and

potatoes are sweet and unpalatable
when cooked. This she may not know
Is because the potatoes have been
frozen and boiled by dropping them in
hot water. Frozen ; potatoes will not
develop a sweet flavor when cooked if
they are placed in cold water to be
cooked. The cold water will then be
gradually brought to the boiling point
and the potatoes boiled until thorough thoroughly

potatoes will not taste sweet.
