CONVENIENT TO DRY FRUIT
Loss and Labor May Be Saved by Us
ing Reversible Trays-Taken to
Shelter Without Trouble.
(By H. F. GRINSTEAD.)
The evaporator is the best for a
number of reasons, but where one
must dry by the sun there is yet a
much better way than spreading out
one the house roof or a scaffold of
Loss and labor may be saved by
having wire bottom trays two feet
wide and two or three feet long. These
trays should be made reversible,
which may be done by having the
sides of two pieces of lnch-and-a-half
timber nailed together with the wire
bottom between them. This secures
the bottom and makes a tray an Inch
and a quarter deep either way it ls
Pour of these trays will hold as
much as any ordinary faiaily would
want to put out at one time, and more
can be had as needed.
The wire cloth for the bottom
should be galvanized and what ls
known as No. 2 or No. 3 mesh; that ls,
there are two or three wires to the
inch, which ls close enough to hold
The scaffold is made by setting four
posts high enough to be out of danger
from the poultry. Strips of 1x4 are
nailed from one post to the other as
high as wanted for the trays to rest
The end posts should be set twp
feet or a little more apart, which will
be the proper width of the scaffold,
putting the other pair of posts as far
from these as the length of the scaf
fold is wan ?.3d to be.
When the trays are placed on these
supports the air passes up through
the fruit, drying it much quicker and
The greatest convenience in having
the trays is when a shower threatens
or to protect the half dried fruit from
the night dew.
The trays may be quickly taken to
Shelter without disturbing the fruit.
If there should be several days of
rainy weather the trays should bo
stacked one on top of the other in
a shed or in the house; the air pass
ing between the trays will keep the
fruit from souring till again placed
