                                 CAN COOKING

                     Cooking in a can? Why not? It's
                     more fun than cooking the
                     traditional way. So start saving
                     those cans, clean and dry them,
                     and remove the labels. When you
                     have collected about 10 cans,
                     you are ready to give this fun
                     recipe a try:

PUMPKIN BREAD IN A CAN

Recipe contributed by Carol Christian-Lewis

 2 * cups sugar       2 cups pumpkins (1 sm.can)
 2 * cups flour       2/3 cup oil
 4 eggs               2/3 cup water
 2 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. baking soda
 1 tsp. salt          1 tsp. each cinnamon, ginger, and cloves

Mix all ingredients well. Grease and lightly flour about 10 soup cans with
bottom of can intact (or if you are a traditionalist, you can bake this in 2
loaf pans). Pour into cans. If using soup cans, fill about 2/3 full. Bake
one hour at 350 degrees. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes in cans. Gently
run knife around the inside of the can to loosen the bread from the sides.
Shake gently and the bread should fall right out. Cool on wire rack. Make
great gifts.

You can probably use almost any bread recipe and bake it in a can.
Experiment with your family's favorite recipe and let us know how it turns
out.

KICK THE CAN ICE CREAM

Recipe contributed by Jessica A. Walton

[Image]You will need a coffee can with a lid and a second can a bit smaller
with a lid in addition to the ingredients listed below *:

 1/2 Cup milk                         1 Tbsn. Sugar

 1/4 tsp. Vanilla                     Add about 6 Tbsp. salt to the large
                                      can only

Place milk, vanilla and sugar into the small can and seal it. Fill the large
can half full of ice and add the salt. Place the small can into the large
can and seal it again carefully. Shake well until it is ice cream - about 5
minutes. Wipe off top of small can before you open it - or you will have
salty ice cream. Carefully open small can and enjoy.

* This works using bags instead of cans too - just use pint size and gallon
size ziplock bags.
