Recipe: Cream of Wheat with Dates

Dates added to cream of wheat supply to a great extent the cellulose and mineral salts that are taken out when the bran is removed in the manufacture of this cereal. They likewise give to it a flavor that is very satisfactory, especially when added in the manner here explained.

CREAM OF WHEAT WITH DATES
(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  3/4 c. cream of wheat
  •  1 tsp. salt
  •  4-1/2 c. boiling water
  •  3/4 c. dates

Cook the cream of wheat in the manner directed in Art. 47. Wash the dates in hot water, cut them lengthwise with a sharp knife, and remove the seeds. Cut each date into four pieces and add them to the cream of wheat 10 minutes before serving, stirring them into the cereal just enough to distribute them evenly. Serve hot with cream or milk and sugar.
