When retailers add the cost of spoilage, transporlation, and retailing to wholesale price, grocery store and roadside market prices have to be above the price paid In producers. Consmners who have won dcred what happened to the 20 cents per quart that we once paid for home-grown strawberries don't have to look further t h a n labor and con- ainer costs for their answer. Cost for picking is presently running 12 to 15 cents for each of the 18 picked quarts needed to yield enough salable berries for a 16-,-|iiart crate. Growers p u v Sl.'iO to $1.40 for each crate with 16 quart cups, adding up to to $4.10 (or 22 to 25 cents per quart) for picking and packing cosis. For this reason and otners, families who live near enougii lo berry fields to take advantage of pick-your- own arrangements can save one-third to one-half the retail cost of fresh berries. HOME FREEZING When fresh strawberries are available, their texture, appearance, and flavor give them an advantage over frozen berries for daily use, even at the same price.

Since a quart of jerries yields about 20 ounces f whole berries, these prices re equivalent to 90 cents and 1.30 for each quart of fresh erries. Obviously, the greatest money saving in home freezing oes to those who prefer whole unsweetened berries. However, he practical price to pay for berries for freezing is not the ame for all families. The value tlaced on home-preparation ime, cost ol usable containers or home freezing, availability if freezer space, and preference or home or commercially rozen berries must be considered along with cost of jerries and sugar. Traditionally. p r e s e r v e making has saved more money than home freezing, but increased cost of sugar and c o m 'n e r r: i a 1 pectin have changed that situation for the present. At 50 cents per quart of fresh berries, homemade jams and preserves are likely to be about the same cost as commercially m a d e ones Again, price of commercialb prepared ones may increase this f a l l , and always home p r e p a r e d ones may be preferred for flavor.
