If we all pitch in, l!)<i-l will scc the grcalcsL foot! production in bin- history. IStil that will require your help. It's tij) td you to: 1, grow every ounce of food you possibly can; 2, iise all the food you grow; 3, can your food by tlie proper and safe methods. Et'cry ounce of home-canned food is urgently needed. Your Government bcifs von not only | 0 match what voii cl« last year but, if possible,' to better your 1043 record. Put up fruits ami Ibhiatoes bv the boiling-Walci- bath method—a Safe anil satisfactory method for these foods. But before you begin yoilr 1944 bbn- iiilig of _ali_other^egctablcs; bood Housekeeping wauls to tell you How to avoid a clanger that may "occur in home-canned food—a danger recognized, by many authorities, including the U. S. Department of Agriculture. That-danger is bbUilinus food poisoning! Botolinus poisoning comes from bacteria .that live in flic soil and cling to vegetables. It is rare—but it isn't confined to ^list a few parts of (he country, as some people think. Eo.tulimis germs may be on tiie food you can. They must bb destroyed. Whenever these bacteria are present in the food and are not tiestrbyed'dur- ing the canning process they gradually produce a toxin which is poisonous. It takes hottcr-than-boiiihg heat to kill.bpluliiHis germs. Neither hot-water bath nor open-kettle canniiljj provides enough heat to destroy them. That is why we advise: the only safe way to can low-acid vcgctables^-which meiiiis iiil vegetables except tomatoes^is~l)v the correct use of a pressure cooker! If you don't already own a pressure, • coOker, you'll be glad to know that thci Government is allowing the mamifac lure of '100,000 new cookers for sale this summer without priorities. ..If you can't buy a pressure cooker, borrow your neighbor's . . . or pt-i'haps you'll find one available through a cp'nimunity canning .group. If not, form your own community group, ami bliy one. To be safe, don't can low-acid veg- etablcs any other way- We take this opportunity to iVsnc two further warnings: ]. Oven canning is dangerous. It has caused many serious accidents to persons and to property. Shun it! 2. All home-canned foods should be examined carefully when opened. If there is evidence of spoilage, the food should not be used. NEVER TASTE to discover spoilage.* [iy all means, put iiji every ounce of Kllrpiiis food you possibly can. Oiir armed forces anil the hiihgry natiorts of flic earth need the benefits of our iibii it dance.
