The growing number of..liomc garden? provide some fooil for preserving, but oven those without cardons arc bocominf! interested in buying foods while, they nir plentiful to save for the w i n t e r when (nods a i q . n o t so p l e n t i f u l -- or cheap. TJjere arc v;irimi: methods of foods: canning, fiwzing. and drying arc among the-most popular. To aid resi- doMs who w n n t In p re servo Ioo3s, tlic W a s h i n g t o n ComU\ exUyi^ion service )i;is offeree several classes. ! Drying, freezing. and jelly m a k i n g wore discussed at an early srsnnn. According to instructions pu'i-n by home economist Mrs. Mary Gilbert, dry ins is apparently one of (ho simplest and least expensive methods of preserving some foods. Other advantages are conservation of storactr space and the omission or^u'piir -- which is going up in "price along with m a n y of tho foods to be preserved. - HEST ADAPTKI) Certain varieties of fruits, vegetables, and herbs are best adapted to d r y i n g -- and some take more e f f o r t t h a n others TnWsUy for s a f e t y ' s siike. The. best candidates for the beginner are. apples, pears, peaches C(rrr), zuchinni and onions. The idea behind drying foods Is to remove enough moisture to";reduce tlie growth of bacteria n n t f any other organism lha could cause the food to spoil ThS higher the acid content c thtf food, the more moisture til fnod can retain without spoil age'. Thus fruits, which are hi^l in "acid, are easier to preserve by drying, than are meats which have very little acid. Most dried foods have 10 I 2l~pcr cent of the water contcn lefVin. Specifics on any of the procc rinses needed lo dry Foods or. lo preserve foods by an convent ion a] method -- ar available f r r n n the county e tension office in the count, courthouse. Tlie p r i m e rule for salisfac tory results in drying bo f r u i t s and vegetables is t pclcct foods in prime condition (This is true for all preserva t i n j i ' m e t h n t l O F r u i t s should b willed; vegetables scrubbct aild the foods peeled, pitted o sliced depending on which foo is, k involved. Like c a n n i n g d r y i n g is best done r a p i d l y small britches. f'or fruits, prc-troatmcnt opdminl, although any (ine a 'combination of the prc-trea Tneiit processes may vie better products. An unli-oxidanl process gives short-term color preservation to [oods. p a r t i c u l a r l y apples and oilier fruits, which have a tendency to t u r n d a r k . Ascorbic acid, in water, can be sprinkled over fruits to keep better color. Steam b l a n c h i n g i.s optional for fruils and provides color and flavor prc.servalion. However, it is a necessity to blanch vegetables to provide a m a r g i n of safety in the preservation. Cracking is recommended for foods such as cherries, fits, and grains, which have a waxy skin. Dipping the food in boiling water "cracks" the skins. allowing a more complete d r y i n g process. Sulphuring is another treatment that helps to give long term color and flavor, prevents souring and repels insecls. The process also helps foods retain v i t a m i n s A and C. hut causes a loss of v i t a m i n H Thiamin. One way to sulphur foods is to place pieces on racks supported by blocks, and cover the racks wit' a large box. The box should have openings at opposing sides lo provide a d r a f t of air. A dish ot sulphur is set in one corner and lit. After the s u l p h u r b u r n s out. the openings arc closet! anti the sul- phuring process begins, Details m timing, etc.. are available m pamphlets from the extension office. Kruils and vegetables are dried on racks, which may be made in various ways for use out of doors or in an oven. The use of certain woods and metal is ill-advised, either because the wood will w a r p or affecl Ihe lasle of foods; or because Ihe metal chemicals might react with food juices. Foods will dry outside on warm, breezy days in two to three days time. Inside foods dry in six to eight hours in a 120 degree oven, although an oven chcc Fe 3C S ii anrl drie deg nec P in The she befr \\ qua thei foot veg oven thermometer is needed io check Ihe temperature. foods dried either way should be stirred frequently. Herbs such as sage, basil. _. parsley, should be air- dried. because heating over 100 necessary oils. dry out the Peas and beans may IK dried i (he hull, then pasteurized. They can also be picked green, shelled and steam blanched before drying.

However, extension economisl Pat Hcch had whay may be a new twist on Ihe use of paraffin to seal the jelly glass. Mrs. Hech simply put several small cubes of paraffin in (he bottom of the jelly glass, The hot syrup melts the paraffin, which rises to the top, sealing Ihe jelly.

WcA, May 27, 1*74 pAvrrriviLLi, *RKAM»*» WASHINGTON (AP) - The advertising industry has set up a special program to monitor the $400 million worth of advertisements aimed at children every year. The program. announced Monday .by the Council of Better Business Bureaus with support from advertiser trade associations, is based on the view that children contuse reality and fantasy, and thus are more easily deceived than adults. -The monitoring will he based on principles established two years ago by the Association of National Advertisers owever, a Federal Trade Commission official who ha: been mediating talks between the industry and its critics said the new'program "does not ap pear to represent any ad K»." I saw nothing in the proposals which I thought would or should deflect the FTC staff's efforts to draft comprehensive guides dealing with children's advertising," said J.

R.P.
