KK1DAY, AWJIL 28, 19.1 BIA'THEVILLE (AUK,) COURIER NEWS Published Every Friday In the I Intwrent of Farm Families of Thli|| Agricultural Section, NEWS-PEA! Get Vitamin C \\ Strawberries One Generous Serving Enough To Furnish Day's Requirements Mississippi county liomemakers may rightfully (jive strawberries a lilacc of Importance in the menu, nccorcllng |o Miss Cora Lee Colc- maii, county home demonstration asont. Not only clo they rank ;\s general fnvoritps because of their color aiul (Ir.vor, but they have another virtue to recommend them o l!ie family meal planner—rlcli- ni'ss In vitamin C. For best, health seme of this vitamin is needed every day. One generous serving of fresh •i|)c berries Is enough to furnisli the day's requirements of this vitamin, continues Miss Colernan. Ou tlie oilier hand, Ijenic.s that are canned or preserved, and those that are unripe or bruised have much less vitamin C to offer. in order to preserve vitamin c jerries should be washed before stemming.. Removing l!ic stems exposes inner tissues, and the vitamin from this (Issue can dissolve in the washing water. Soak- US berries in water for any length of time may also draw out some of tl-e vitamin. Fortunately for those who like strawberry shortcake, the usual method of .slicing the berries and allowing them to stand with or without sugar for a short time Jftforc serving- destroys little, if jf, of the vitamin. Crushing or noshing the berries causes a loss however, she explains. In contrast to the rich source of vitamin c in fresh berries there is rather a weak showing in fanned ones or those made into preserves, jam, or jelly. During the canning process, berries lose about 'alf their original C, and they continue to lose more gradually as they stand after canning After nine months of storage, they have last about 80 per cent. The banned H-oducts contribute sugar and flavor to the diet, but should not be counted on for vitamin c. The Mississippi County gardener who grows strawberries may be interested to know that berries which ripen in the sun contain more C than those ripened in shade. Practically no loss of vitamin c occurs in berries left standing at room temperature for n s long as two lays after they arc picked, and 'Ernes kept as long as five days ' Ihe hydrator of a home refrigerator I osc practically no vitamin -onlent, concludes Miss Cotonan _Read courier News Want Ads.
