Sargent’s Gem 
Food Chopper 

Ts a kitchen necessity ; no housekeeper should 
A be without it. Gem- Chopped ingredients 
are needed in the preparation of nearly every 
meal. By Gem-Chopped we mean chopped with 
Sargent’s Gem Food Chopper, which does the 
work quickly, quietly, easily and with satisfac- 
tory results. The old-fashioned method of using 
the chopping-bowl and knife is slow, noisy and 
tiresome. 

Labor-saving, Time-saving, Food-saving 

Sargent’s Gem Food Chopper is a labor- 
saving, time-saving and food-saving machine 
intended for daily use in the kitchen. It is not 
a complicated piece of mechanism and no special 
directions for using it are needed ; there are few 
parts, so that it cannot get out of order — it is 
easy to take apart, easy to put together, easy to 
adjust, easy to use, can be cleaned in a jiffy and 
with less trouble than a chopping-bowl. 

Self-sharpening Steel Cutters 

With each machine there are steel cutters, 
for fine, medium and coarse chopping, and 
for pulverizing. These cutters are made 
of steel, a feature peculiar to Sargent’s Gens 
Food Chopper ; they will not break ; they; 


are self -sharpening ; each cutter Gem-Chops in 
pieces of its uniform size and they do not tear, 
mash, squeeze or grind the various ingredients. 

Useful at all Times 

The recipes in this book show the great 
variety of uses to which the Gem may be put, 
although these recipes cover only a few of the 
many dishes in which Gem-Chopped ingredients 
are needed. It will be seen that the Gem 
is useful Summer and Winter, Spring and 
Autumn, in preparing the breakfast, dinner, 
luncheon and supper. It is more useful tudn a 
chopping-bowl and a great deal handier ; it may 
be easily clamped to the kitchen table, and is 
then ready for use whenever needed. 

Gem-Chops All Kinds of Food 

Sargent’s Gem Food Chopper Gem-Chops 
raw meat, cooked meat, fish, clams, oysters, vege- 
tables of all kinds, fruit, bread, crackers, cheese, 
nuts and many other articles used in making the 
substantial dishes and dainty desserts described 
in this book. It will be found exceedingly useful 
in making many of the culinary favorites of 
every family. 

Utilizes " Left-overs ” 

Sargent’s Gem Food Chopper will be found 
economical, too ; with it many attractive and 
appetizing dishes can be prepared from the “ left- 
overs,” which would be wasted if it were not for 
the Gem.

that cannot break 


A point in favor of Sargent’s 
Gem Food Chopper is the fact 
that the cutters are made of steel 
and cannot break. They chop in 
pieces of uniform size — do not 
mash, tear, squeeze or grind the 
various substances and are fur- 
nished with the Choppers as 
follows :

"Left-overs” Transformed into T id-bits 

“ Left-overs ” transformed into appetizing 
tid-bits belong distinctively to the dainty home 
table. A few bits of cold meat, with appropriate 
additions of inexpensive materials properly treated 
and flavored, give an air of elegance and a touch 
of refinement to an otherwise plain table. In 
food, as elsewhere, appearances count, and the 
final appearance of the dish itself has much to do 
with its digestibility. 

44 The Flower of Cookery” 

The process of warming over cold meats has 
been called “ the flower of cookery ; ” the digest- 
ibility of meat once cooked to tenderness depends 
upon its being simply reheated (not cooked over), 
as a second cooking toughens the fibers. The 
ease with which cooked meats can be reheated 
depends largely upon the size of the pieces into 
which the product is divided. It would seem 
then that a means of quickly dividing meats 
uniformly into pieces of such size as various 
dishes of the cuisine calls for, would be that 
which is required in all successful meat cookery. 


Suggestions by Janet McKenzie Hill — Continued 


The Gem is Indispensable 

To meet this demand Sargent's Gem Food 
Chopper has been devised, and the clean cut 
pieces of uniform size into which not only meat, 
but vegetables, fruit, cheese, nuts, and other 
substances may be quickly and easily separated, 
renders it one of the indispensable articles in the 
kitchen outfit of every economical housewife. 

Getting the Most Out of Meat 

Meat, either cooked or uncooked, in order to 
be of use in the economy of the human system 
needs to be broken up ; tender meat falls apart 
readily when it comes in contact with the teeth, 
and thus is easily acted upon by the digestive 
fluids. But there is only a small portion of really 
. tender meat in a side of beef or mutton, and the 
price of this puts it beyond the reach of daily 
consumption in the majority of families, and yet 
less tender meat, richer in nutritive qualities and 
much less expensive, if it be properly Gem- 
Chopped may be easily digested and assimilated. 



No. i, Soup Stock 

The material for the stock is usually at hand in the shape of 
a few bits of brown fat, the gristle and stringy pieces left from 
the carefully trimmed pieces of meat, and in the bones from 
which the meat has been taken. Bones and gristle of themselves 
do not add value to the soup stock, but the meat juice formerly 
cooked into these and which a process of slow cooking releases, 
is what is sought for. These give a flavor which may be height- 
ened and modified to suit the taste, by the addition of a few bits 
of raw meat that may be at hand (the trimmings from chops, the 
flank ends of steak, etc.), and certain vegetables and herbs, 
either uncooked or sauted in hot fat. The proportions are : 
Water to cover the ingredients and a tablespoonful of coarse 
Gem-Chopped vegetables of several kinds to a quart of liquid ; 
seeds, as celery, a piece of bay leaf, a red pepper pod, horse- 
radish root and mushroom parings are added at discretion. After 
simmering two hours or more the liquid is drained off, and when 
time allows, cooled and freed from fat, when it is ready for use. 

— Janet McKenzie Hill, 

No. 2, Beef Soup Stock 

Take a shank of beef and 
Gem-Chop (Cutter No. i) ; take 
out the marrow and with a 
piece of butter put into a kettle ; 
set over the fire and when hot add the meat and cook until 
brown ; then add the bones and sufficient hot water to cover it ; 
boil four hours ; strain and set away to cool.

No. 3, Brown Soup 

Put on your soup bone early in 
the morning. Gem-Chop two 
pounds of beef very fine, flavor 
with onion, salt and pepper, and 
make into small balls and fry; 
put them into the soup (after 
seasoning the soup to your taste), add one pint of browned flour. 
Have in the tureen six hard-boiled eggs, cut up ; four lemons, 
sliced ; pour the soup over these and serve.

No. 5, Victoria Soup 

Gem-Chop the veal with the 
onion and carrot, put in kettle 
with one quart of water or 
enough to cover, and skim and 
let simmer for one hour ; when 
nearly done add the barley, pre- 
viously soaked in a little water. 
Boil gently one and a half hours after the barley has been put in, 
adding water now and then as it simmers down ; lastly, add one 
quart of milk, boil up once and serve. Other spices may be used.

a teaspoonful of salt and a half 
a teaspoonful of white pepper; set on ice, or in a cold place, to 
become firm, then form into cutlets, egg-and-bread crumb and 
fry in deep fat about four minutes. As the fish is uncooked the 
fat should be less hot than to fry croquettes and other cooked 
preparations. Serve with a rich tomato sauce.

After a fine, plump turkey has been nicely dressed wipe it dry, 
both inside and outside ; make a dressing of Gem-Chopped bread 
crumbs (use stale bread) and mashed potato, about one-third 
potato and two-thirds bread crumbs ; season with salt, pepper, 
sage and summer savory to tasie ; till the turkey with this and 
sew up the openings ; pour one pint of hot water in the dripping 
pan, and be careful to add more water as it cooks away, or the 
gravy will be spoiled ; roast in a hot, steady oven until the turkey 
is done ; when done it should be a beautiful, crisp, golden brown ; 
unless the covered roasting pan is used frequent basting is neces- 
sary ; when done, if the gravy in the pan is not thick enough, 
add a little flour, some seasoning, if necessary, and the giblets, 
which should be boiled and Gem-Chopped. 

— Ladies’ Aid Cook Book.

oysters, Gem-Chopped fine, and mix all together; stuff body and 
breast with the dressing, sew up, tie the legs and wings to body, 
rub it over with butter, salt and pepper, put in dripping pan, 
pour on a cup of boiling water, set in oven, baste often ; when 
done serve with cranberry sauce. — Ladies’ Aid Cook Book.

spoonful of pepper and a dash 
of cayenne. Cook a cabbage in boiling salted water two or three 
minutes, so that the leaves may be pliable and removed from the 
head in perfect condition. Remove the leaves, one by one, and 
in each wrap a rounding teaspoonful of the beef and rice. Lay 
the croquettes in a baking-dish, pour over them a tomato sauce, 
cover the dish, and bake one hour in a moderate oven. Serve

Let a beef tongue, or 
three pounds of beef from

in which it was cooked; 
this water should barely 
cover it. When cold trim

Gem-Chop also about two 
pounds of suet (suet chops 
better when sprinkled 
with flour), and enough 
apples to make two 
pounds when Gem-Chopped ; 
add two pounds of whole 
raisins, two pounds of currants, carefully cleaned, one-fourth a 
pound of citron, sliced, two pounds of sugar, two teaspoonfuls of 
ground cloves, four teaspoonfuls of ground cinnamon, three tea- 
spoonfuls of ground mace, one teaspoonful of black pepper, two 
tablespoonfuls of salt, one pint of molasses, one pint of cider, or 
vinegar from the sweet pickle jar, and the juice and grated rinds 
of three lemons. Mix thoroughly, and when making the pies, if
