"Except for these imponderables: We don't know the condition of the food on arrival by' surface. It takes seven or eight days from California (to the East Coast). Even in a controlled atmosphere,' there's some deterioration." Rains said a downward trend has prevailed in fresh fruit and vegetable consumption in recent years, largely because of the growth of the frozen food industry. But he expects the trend to level. "One of our big problems Is fighting the inconvenience of home preparation of fresh produce," he said. "We're doing a better Job all the time, from Improved strains to Improved harvesting techniques, such as quick: cooling in the field and controlled atmosphere in transit. One big problem involves handling fruits and vegetables after they're out of commercial hands and at the retail level." Rains said white potatoes are the only vegetable exceptions to the leveling off process: "A tremendous amount of the potato crop is processed i frozen or dehydrated." The industry spokesman would like to see Americans eat more fresh white potatoes. "With the exception of the sweet potato, it's the nearest ! all around food," he said. "I don't know the origin of the myth that potatoes are fatte- : ning. An average potato has only 85 to 90 calories." By JEANNE LESEM ITI Food Editor NEW YORK (UTI) Fresh . asparagus, strawberries, cherries, grapes, lettuce and even cauliflower have joined the Jet set. Fresh produce grown In lfornla reaches East Coast markets these days few hours after It's picked, and Europe In only 12 hours, says Alan Rains, executive vice president of the United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association. California .produces 45 per cent of ail fruits and tree, nuts in the United States and one third of the vegetables. Rains said air transport a--Hon of fresh fruit and vegeta-. bles increased jibout 80 per cent last year over 1966. Its effect on the family budget Is hardly noticeable, according to the industry spokesman. He said a pint of strawberries may cost about a nickel more at the consumer level than It would if shipped by rail instead of Jet freighter. To Rains, air freighting of fresh produce is "a fantastic tory. We thought the pioneers were off their rocker, even 10 years ago, at about take-off time." Seasoned travelers who praise the high quality of fresh fruits and vegetables In Europe may think the shipment of U.S. produce there unnecessary, If not incongruous. But to U.S. growers, It's a matter, of economics. Europe hasn't the land space to grow Iceberg lettuce, for instance.

These are called Barolo, Barbaresco (don't confuse them with the commoner Bardolino and Bar-bera), and Gatinara. Although they're all .scarce, they're well worth looking for. All three are made from the Nebbiolo grape, and some-times you may also see wine bearing this name. It comes from the same region, but the better wine carries one of the three other names. The finest Barolo Is powerful, full-bodied and rich in bouquet, but mouth-puckering v. hen young. It's aged for at least 5 years before being shipped and can benefit from' many years more. Only last year I drank a 1937 Barolo made by the house of Borgog-no. It was easily the greatest Italian wine I've ever tasted. But any wine the Borgogno firm ships is reliable, and you can currently enjoy their 1962 Barolo. Try it with roast beef or any other red meat. Borgogno aisc makes a fine Barbaresco, a wine softer than Barolo and ready to drink earlier. Enjoy Barbaresco with roast turkey or chicken as well as with meat. Gattinara is sent to America by the Cantine Diver. It's in snorter supply than Barolo, consequently a bit more expensive. It too is slow-maturing but eventually becomes velvety. Some people rank Gattinara first, some give the prize to Barolo. Both are big generous wines, and you'll have a memorable experience with a bottle of either of them to accompany your roast beef. Kitchen tip: Marinate, then simmer a round roast in 1 to 2 cups of Barolo with dried mushrooms and usual seasonings, for the most delicious pot roast you ever ate. l4 N fn f (STYLE) "Wi(ii( W KmS i. a a if A i mmiw i fil Butterscotch Buffs Will Love This Pie on one 1 pound can or two 8 oz. cans ( add filberts and stir until browned.

Choice red kidney beans in a piquant sauce bring you the distinctively delicious flavor of authentic "Old World" cooking! Serve them alone, or in nourishing salads that men like, or as the main ingredient of many bean dishes. By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor It's a luscious combination of butterscotch flavor and filberts, this pie. The filling is a custard-type mixture and It has a high and fluffy meringue. It should cut well after being allowed to cool completely at room temperature, but if you have doubts about its firmness chill it briefly. And we mean briefly; long chilling won't do the crust or the meringue any good. Another tip: when the custard-type mixture is cooked, It has to be both stirred and boiled for a matter of minutes. Stir slowly, in the form of the figure eight; this way you can watch the boiling and time it. About adding the meringue. Spoon part of the meringue carefully around the edge of the filling, then spread It out to touch the inner edges of the crust all the way around. Heap the rest of the meringue In the center and push it out to meet the border.
