At or ohards, open markets, and grocery store, prices are above those of last year; but the same will probably be true of the new pack of commercially cannet and frozen peaches. Right now carinned ones are harder to fine ;han fresh ones; but the cannei supply should soon be ample. For regular diels.the wisdoir of canning peaches varies with families, - depending on prici they must pay for peaches, time available ' for home preserva tion, and preference for horn or commercially canned peach es. For sugar-free diets, there'. ho question that money cian be saved by h o m e Canning peaches. The same is .true o frozen peaches, for both regula and sugar-free diets. VALUE OF PRESERVATION A bushel of peaches (4 pounds (yields 18 - to 2 quarts "of canned peaches. I most cases, home - canne peaches are more closely pack ed than commercially canne ones, so an accurate compar: son of cost of actual canne fruit is difficult. However, ne weight ( p e a c h e s plus liq uid) of a b u s h e l home-canned peaches is th same as that of 20 to 27 siz Z'A cans. At 45 c e n t s a can this, means a cost of $9 to.$ for the commercially canne peaches that could be replace by home-canned ones from bushel.

By the pound or bushel peaches should be handled with care as they bruise easily. Let partially ripened peaches mellow up at room temperature. Use ripe ones immediately or seal in plastic bags or covered containers and refrigerate. KEEPING COLOR Without special treatment, the rich color of peeled peaches turns to an unappetizing brown soon after t h e y are peeled. This browning results from a chemical union of oxygen with the flesh of the peach.'It can be prevented, but once the change has occurred, the origi nal color cannot be restored. A simple method of prevent- ng browning in dessert peaches s this: Dissolve 1 tablespoon of honey in 2 tablespoons of lot water and dip peach pieces nto the solution. This is effective for about an hour. C o l o r may be kept in canning peaches by dropping peeled peaches into a solution made of 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt to the gallon pi water. For the more permanenl effect necessary in home freezing, ascorbic acid is needed Pure crystalline ascorbic acid may be bought at drug stores or commercial preparations containing ascorbic acid may Warm Weather To Continue By The Associated Press Thunderstorms- dotted the na- ional weather picture from the Northern Plains to the north Atlantic coastal region today, with most of the nation enjoying mild temperatures.
