Here lire pointers from the home cuiiuniLsls for cnnulnt; the berries, 'JiC'iTles, and other .summer fruits .s tlicy come along, so that UK rults, the sugar ration, and tho e canner herself mny all keep n step. 1. Shift the sugar to fit the rult. Sour mills mny demand — ind gel — more than the average. n Hint case, you will count on giv- ng .sliorl-ratlons of sugar to some jf your very juicy and sweet fruits. Often you can taste the natural Invor of sweet fruit better when ess sugar Is used. 2. Put up some fruit without su- ;ar, if necessary. It's true that a lltle sugar helps canned fruits o hold color and flavor. Hut the .ugiir Isn't essential to keep the lamied fruil from spoiling. Fruit or pic making is often canned without sugar, by choice. So is rult for dlnbctlc diet.s. So, If you have more fruit than Uigur at any time this summer, lon't let it go to waste. Can Ihe ruit and mark the jars plainly o Indicate "no sugar." Then you :an open them and sweeten the mil lo laste when the family can Ucsl spare sugar from its weekly 'iition. ' 3. Prccaok fruit for canning. You can heat the fruit in fruit juice, syrup, or water. Adding sugar jefore heating the fruil will help Iraw out juice. Some fruiUs tlui? rcatcd yield enough juice of their own .so lhal no additional liquid s needed. There is good reason for heat- ng .the fruit before it goes into he canner. I'l-ccooking shrinks the rult, helping you to get more Ino cnch jar — milch Is good wnr- ime economy of glass jars and nctal fiaps, and economy of shelf pace, besides.
