80-mUAPE GAZETTE,Friday,  May 30 -J't/ne 5, 2003 Mmonds Continued from page 77 longevity. At traditional Greek weddings, odd-numbers of sugar-coated al- monds otherwise known as "koufetta" or "Born Born Yara" are given to symbolize how the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided. Tradition holds that if an un- married woman puts the almonds under her pillow, she'll dream of her future husband. In addition to being good luck, almonds are a girl of good health - they're high in vitam E and healthful monounsaturated"fat, and can help lower LDL choles- terol. They also pack protein, fiber, calcium and magnesium. As a gift or just a simple, sweet snack, try this fresh, flavorful take on traditional sugar-coated al- monds: CINNAMON-GLAZED ALMONDS 2 egg whites, at room tempera- ture 1/8 tsait 1 C sugar 3 C whole natural California al- monds 4 t cinnamon ,1/3 C butter, melted ....... " Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat egg whites with salt until frothy; gradually add sugar, beat- ing into stiff peaks. Gently fold in almonds, cinna- mon and melted butter. Pour al- mond mixture onto a 15 1/2 x 10 l/2-inch jellyroll pan. Bake about 40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes, until almonds are crisp. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes three cups.

The vet, not the President of the United States. He saved my dog, which is more important than anything they can do in Washington, D.C. And hats off to Steve the social worker at Beebe who visited me and who said I did not remember him. Of course I did. I will always remember Steve. He is the best social worker in the world and saved my family when my mother was sick. He is also cute and I must admit that it is fun to wake up with someone cute staring at you. Although, all and all, I wish that it did not have to be on the fifth floor at Beebe. And thanks very much to Ginger, Suann, Bev- erly and Louise. You were truly great. I am sorry I pushed the red button so many times. 59 Reho ach, DE Color, flavor make grapes great All varieties of table grapes- green, red or black-are delicious, especially when they're fresh. And, as many shoppers are dis- covering, now is the time of year to find the freshest grapes. During the long winter and ear- ly spring months, many table grapes spend weeks in cold stor- age before they arrive in stores. During the sunny months, fresh grapes from new harvests in the Mexican state of Sonora start pop- ping up in grocery stores. Sonora provides almost 60 percent of the fresh table grapes sold in the Unit- ed States from May to July. CHIPOTLE-GRAPE SAUCE 3 cups orange-pineapple juice 1/2 cup white wine vinegar 4 cups red grapes such as Flame Seedless or Red Globe, or the black Fantasy, seeded if neces- sary 3 tablespoons canned chipotle peppers, or to taste 2 tablespoons cumin Juice of one lime Process juice, vinegar, grapes and peppers in a blender until smooth. Heat and stir cumin in a medium saucepan until fragrant; add grape puree, stir, and bring t o a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lime and salt. Makes about 3 cups. i :: !i::: MONDAY !1 i i n j l I := =  i:: :":  I , OFF I i :: .... n ':' ....
