THE DISCOUNT LEADERS Highway 62 405 North By Pass 71 College / --------^^--^-- , Evelyn Hills Southgate Center Shopping Cntr Supplement To: The Northwest Arkansas Times .RAINBOW SHORT CUT--LIMIT 4 PLEASE! · · PRICES EFFECTIVE OCT. 2--NOON OCT. 9 CANNED FOOD BONANZA! Did you know one of the oldest forms of convenience foods is canned food? Since Napoleon ordered an easily transportable, nutritious food which would not require special refrigeration for his march on Moscow, we have come to rely on canned foods as a basic method of food preservation. Thanks to modern technology, which continues to provide us with an increasing variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, and even desserts, you can enjoy many foods all year round, in every section of the country. For a long time now we've been concerned about the higher prices we all must pay and about the shortages of many foods. While some foods are still higher than we'd like, we are showing our concern by buying truck loads of foods so you can afford to stock up at some real old-fashioned prices. Each family uses approximately 500 cans and jars of food each year, a part of nearly 27 million consumed in the U.S. annually. Right now is an excellent time to replenish you r supply from a wide variety of "new pack" items, which have just been processed. Here are a few things to keep in mind while these special sales allow you to build your supply and save money, too. · Choose the style and quality for the ultimate use intended --whole or halves of vegetables and fruits frequently cost more than "cut-up" or "pieces," so choose only when appearance is especially important. · Read the label. It's really your window to the can and will help you make the best choiceandplanforgood nutrition. · Never buy or use bulged or leaky cans, slightly dented cans are alright, however. Screw-on lids or vacuum sealed lids on jars should be tight. · Store canned foods in a cool dry place. Dale each for easier rotation of your supply at least every 12-18 months to avoid some quality loss. Glass containers should be stored in a closed cabinet or closet if possible and used in 6-8 months. Light can cause some quality loss. Carol Scroggins IGA Supermarket P.O.
