When making scones add a tablespoon of cornflour, and they will be much finer and lighter.

When making a bread custard always soak the bread in milk first. This gives the custard a better flavour.

To make delicious celery salt take a large bunch of fresh celery leaves, wash and dry carefully, place in the oven and allow to bake until leaves are sufficiently crisp to rub into a fine powder. Put powdered leaves through a flour sieve, which reduces them to a still finer powder. Take the required amount of salt, put into airtight class jars with celery powder, and mix well. Will keep for a long time in airtight jars, and is excellent for flavouring purposes.
