NEA Service SlafI Writer To can or not to can is the mies- lion that confronts many homemakers as the rrults and vegetables come into their prime. Big luscious strawberries.fragrant and Kol- <len pineapples, thick, succulent as- jparagus and on through the season, each Iruit and vegetable just as sweet and crisp, crying 'out to be canned and preserved for use next winter. It's no wonder that ti'e urye lo can fills the heart, of every home-keeping woman. Yet there some who find it quite Impracticable to can anything but fruits and prnd on what you can. Fruits and iomatoos may be canned in severs ways successfully. The hot-watc bath caiiner, a "water-less cooker,' a steamer or a heat-controlled oven and Ihc tict-pack method of car Ing insure good results. The hot water bath canners, steamers an _ "waterless cookers" can be bough i in most home-furnishing stores anc are available in various sizes. The home-canning of non-acl vegetables such as peas, bean added to each pint jar of aspwra-1 gus, string b«ans, peas, greens and' corn makes it possible lo can fresh perfect vegetables without danger of spoilage. Corn requires two tea- ipoons lemon juice to a pint. Tills a slightly acid flavor when he jar is op/;icd for serving, but 1-8 teaspoon soda added with the seasoning when the vegetable is reheated neutralizes the acid most satisfactorily. The other vegetables, which do not pack as closely in jars, require less lemon Juice and tre flavor cannot be detected. Successful canning depends on the principle of sterilization. Food which has been made sterile must be kept so and the efficiency of these processes is the answer to the canning problem. In addition lo me necessity of temperature which will kill germs and perfect, complete scaling to keep out germ-laden air several other factors must be considered In the work ol canning. I'ick Sound Materials I want to repeat that canning 1 rlws not in any way improve the uality of the product canned, •mils and vegetables »-hich were Id and tasteless before canning ill be just tir<t way after can- IE. Produce which is bruised •c speckled has begun to be attack- d by bacteria which Is not <ic- roycd in the sterilization of caning. Consequently only s o u n A esh materials should ever be mned. Fruits and vegetables canned in lass should be stored in a dark lace. Light will cause the foods o lose their color, which of course detracts from their appearance 'lien served. The temperature at which canned vegetables are stor- d is also important, since it has a pronounced effect on the kecp- ng qualities. Store them in as :ool a place as possible, preferably between 45 and 60 degrees F. A canning budget will help you to decide how much to expect' from a bushel of fruits and vege- j tables and how much you will need. Unless you can buy shipped foods during ihe winter months, you wilt have to rely on canned products \ to a great extent. This will de- • termlne your needs: One Production Chart bushel berries should 18 quarts or 36 pints. yield One bushel peaches, 18 quarts or 36 pints. One bushel ]»ars. 18 quarls or 3(5 plnis. One bushel plums, 20 quarts or 40 pints. One bushel beans (lima unshelled), 10 quarts or 20 pinis. One bushel beans (green or" "string"), 15 quarts or 30 pints. One bushel corn (husltcd), 6 quarts or 12 pints. One bushel peas In (lie p:d, 10 quarts or 20 pints. Fifteen |»unds spinach. 5 quarto or 10 pints. One bushel tomatoes 16 quarts | or 32 pints. The skill with which the can is !>acitcd, the size of tlie pieces and the quantity of syrup or juics has i a direct, bearing on ihe number of jars which can be produced. NtXT: Canning Fruits.
