The maid of honor busied herself collecting all the ribbons and bows from the discarded wrappings. Taking one of the small decorated paper plates, she cut a hole in the middle and pulled all the ribbons through so the bows caught on top. All the brightly colored bows resembled flowers, and, by grasping the dangling ribbons, the bride had the perfect bouquet for her rehearsal night. Afterwards she would have a beautiful memory of her shower Wendy Mathews What a sweet hint!" And what Jear Heloise: Just a hint to remedy a spo r stain of vitamins on baby's reepers.

Fall brings additional supplies eggplants, g r e e n peppers, quash, and okra to produce ounters, often at lower prices lan we have paid in summer :onths. In addition, the upsur- e in home gardening has in reased availability of thsse ve etables to home gardeners anc icir neighbors. Some decrease in meat pric s, plus a ne wconcern w i t h teadily-increasing prices of recessed fruits and begetables as caused meat to share its sual limelight of shopper's at- ention. Even so, consumer con ern with safety and quality o meat and poultry products con inues 'to bring about change., n processing and marketini iractices. EGGPLANT SEASON In Ihe late summer, oversup- ilies of eggplants have a way if building up suddenly. When his happens, unndvortiscd bargains sometimes pop up unex- lecledly in retail produce coun- ers. Add to that Ihe occasional quantity gift by friends, or ithe rresistible bushel of eg*olanls spotted in open markets, and nany families find themselves vitli more eggplants on hand han wil be needed within Ihe lormal storage time. USE OF EGGPLANTS Eggplants are less fitted to jreservation than most vegetables but do keys olnger in he refrigerator than some High-quality eggplants are crisp and f i r m with a glossy, smooth skin. Color is most always dark purple, though there is a white variety. At this stage, an eggplant may be sealed in a plastic bag and stored in the refrigerator at least a week without qua iity loss. Longer holding results in dulling of the glossy surface followed by shriveling and de cay. Early decay spots may be trimmed away, but once decav starts, it progresses rapidlj throughout the vegetable. No satisfactory method ha: been developed for home can ning of eggplants, and the Unit ed Stales Department of Agri culture does not recommend freezing eggplants e x c e p Births REGIONAL MEDICAt CENTER Mr. and Mrs. Danny B.

Meal-sized alettes of vegetable casseroles ml contain eggplant may be ·ozen in the pans or baking islies in which they are to be cheated. They keep good qua- ly in frozen storage for as long s three months. At s e r v i n g me, eggplant casseroles may e reheated from the frozen .ate in a 350 degree F. oven or 20 to 40 minutes, depending n the size of the frozen dish. Using the defrost cycle of an lectronic range a home-baked, fozen eggplant casserole may e thawed and healed for 'ser- ing in 10 lo 30 minutes, de- ending on the size of the cas- erole. In ranges that do n o t ave a defrost cycle, healing ime should be broken into 3 o 5 minute segments, allowing esting lime between heating leriods. This allows distribution f microwaves throughout the asserole and prevents over- ooking in some areas befor thers are hot. Heat distribution can also be improved by turning tie casserole between heating ntervals. As an alternate method of freezing casseroles, cooked egg-| plant .may ib« frozen for use in casseroles. To do this, peel eggplant tind cut into 'A-inch cubes. Drop cubes into boiling salted water and simmer for about six minutes, unlil crisp- lender. Set the container in cold water until the eggplant is cool. Ladle the eggplant carefully into ajrs or plastic boxes in recipe-size amounts, leaving iiead space. Cover with the water in which the vegetable was cooked, seal, and freeze. To use, thaw eggplant in the refrigerator for several hours, drain, and use in a casserole as you would, freshly cooked eggplant; Use within three months after freezing. RULES FOR OPEN DATING Consumer concerns related to meat and poultry are responsible for continuous change in USDA regulations for ttiese products. One that has been under study for many months is product dating. Product dating is not a new practice, but open datin" has been pracliced on a volunteer basis by a few companies for a relatively short time. This voluntary service made it possible for consumer to read the dates on labels in the same way that processors and retailers have previously been able to read them. However, since some processors used a pack date and others used an expiration date .the ability to read dates only added to consumer confusion. The new amendment to federal meat and'poultry re- gulations'should eliminate some of this confusion. Calendar -dales'^..placed , .on meat and poullry products after Septeniber B .must beridentified as a packing date, a sell by date, or a use before date. This action will eliminate some confusion for shoppers who wish to uso dating codes in buying, but will not assure freshness at purchase time for all dated products. Length of time that a product is held after processing is only one of several factors that determines freshness at the lime of purchase. In many instances, temperatures at' which products are storec and transported have mort to do with freshness at that product than a few dayi or hours of storage time. .
