When ate summer rainfall is adequate, field peas are available rom numerous sources. Their prices vary widely with source and quantity purchased, but trices from all sources are normally lowest in late August. QUALITY SIGNS The .several varieties of field peas differ in size and color Df pods, but freshness and well- billed pods are common signs of quality in all varieties. Mature pods of high-quality, fresh lield peas have a dull luster though color varies with variety. Shiny pods or bright vor has developed, Fresh flavor cannot be restored. FH1SSH FLAVOR VALUED While canned peas are easier to prepare than frozen, dried, or fresh ones, ease of prepara- lion doesn't always determine choice. Ease of preparation, like cost, helps to influence choice of field peas; but flavor preference is likely to oversha other consideration.

I started doing this when my brood were in school and I had all those heavy gym sox that had a hole in them, or were sagging at the lop. I found if I put a pair on ray hands, I could pick up small objects and dust them all over and do the tops of winnows and Also, they are just the thing for polishing silver, shoes, to dust the rungs on the chairs, and all the corners on the legs of the table, and on...and on...

Then the idea occurred to me to place this tube on a plumber's friend (or plunger).

After this off-fla- For this reason, it isn't unusual for homemakers to take the time to shell fresh peas for which they pay more than pro- essed ones would cost. For the ime reason, homemakcis who an't find time to shell peaj nay pay much more for shell- d, fresh peas than they woult lave to pay for an equa: mount of frozen or canned nes. COST PER SERVING At present grocery store rices, fresh, unshelled field pas ar more expensive thai ither canned or frozen peas Dried peas are less expensive lian canned and frozen ones ut dried peas are higher-pricec ban they were a year ago anc igher-priced than they shouk ic this fall. For each half-cup crving of cooked peas, cost un like this: dried peas, 4 t i cents, canned peas (from drier leas) 8 cents, canned pea 'from fresh ones) 8 to 9 cents, rozcn peas 9 to 10 cents, and resh, unshelled peas 11 to 14 cents. COST PER POUND When both shelled and unshelled peas ar displayed in the grocery store, the much higher 3rice of shelled ones often give J guilt complex to shopper who buy them, even if there's not] that much difference in cost after shelling. For purposes of in- slore comparison of fresh peas, a broad general rule is this: When 3 pounds of fresh, unshelled peas cost the same as a pound of frozen or fresh shelled peas, very little money is saved by shelling. To be more specific, 3,pounds of g o o d quality, unshelled field peas yield 1% -- pounds or 4 cups. Grocery store prices of 29 to 39 cents per pound of unshelled peas mean a cost of 63 to 85' cents per pound of shelled peas, j By comparison, frozen field 1 peas in 10- or 20-ounce packages j cost about 53 cents per pound.j Two cans of field peas (15- ounce size) yield about 3 cups EXTENSION.
