J r ' >v , A m\ a' I rtW' rU.A \\\) mm m .aV .V Mm & TRAYS FOR DRYING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. Book. L, (From FARMERS' BULLETIN 841. United States Department of Agriculture.) One of the most prominent features of the food conservation program of European countries has been the uni versal drying of fruits and vegetables. The surplus vegetables In the city mar kets were forced by the governments iutq large municipal drying plants. Community dryers were established in the trucking regions and even itin erant drying machines were sent from farm to farm drying the vegetables which otherwise would have gone to waste. In addition, large quantities of dried vegetables from Canada and this country were shipped to France dur ing the last two years, and there is a possibility that dried fruits and vege tables may continue to be shipped abroad In considerable quantities to supplement the concentrated food diet of the men in the trenches. The drying of vegetables may seem strange to the present generation, but to our grandmothers it was no nov elty. Many housewives even today pre fer dried sweet corn to the product canned by the old method, and say that dried pumpkin and squash are ex cellent for pie making. Snap beans often are strung on threads and dried above the stove. Cherries and rasp berries still are dried on bits of bark for use instead of raisins. In fact, many of the everyday foodstuffs al ready are dried at some stage of their » I preparation for market. The common I dried fruits, such as prunes, raisins, figs, dates and apples, are staples In the world's markets, while beans and other legumes, tea, coffee, cocoa, and various manufactured foods, like starch, tapioca, macaroni, etc., are dried either in the sun and wfnd or In specially constructed driers. Even though the drying of fruits and vegetables as practiced a few decades ago on many farms has become prac tically a "lost art," the present food sltuntion doubtless will cause a marked stimulation of drying os a means of conserving the food supply. This coun are have but Eyes ex try is producing large quantities of per ishable foods this year, which should be saved for storage, canned, or prop erly dried. Drying is not a panacea for the entire waste evil, nor should it take the place of storing or canning to any considerable extent where prop er storage facilities are available or tin cans or glass jars can be obtained readily and at a low cost. Advantages of Drying. The advantages of drying vegetables are not so apparent for the farm home as they are for the town or city house hold, which has no root cellar or oth er place in which to store fresh vege tables. For the farmer's wife the new methods of canning probably will be better than sun drying, which require a somewhat longer time. But shorter methods of drying are available, and the dried product holds an advantage In that usually It requires fewer Jars, cans, or other containers than do canned fruits or vegetables ; also dried material can be stored In receptacles | which cannot be used for canning. is a as ing just ken are this it Then, too, canned fruit and vegetables freeze and cannot be shipped as con veniently in winter. Dried vegetables can be compacted and shipped with a minimum risk. Special Advantages. To the housewife In the town the drying of vegetables and fruits pre sents special advantages. During the season when the market Is oversup plied locally and prices are low she can lay in a stock, dry it, and put it away for a winter's emergency without Its taking up much of the needed small storage space In her home. If she Is accustomed to canning her fruit and vegetables and finda she cannot se cure jars or tin cpns, she can easily re sort to drying. With simple and Inexpensive facili ties, all housewives can save quanti ties of food which ere too small con veniently to can. A few sweet pota toes or apples or peon or even a single turnip can be dried and saved. Even when very small quantities are dried at a time, a quantity sufficient for a meal will soon be secured. Small lots of several dried vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots, turr.Ips, potatoes, and onions, can be combined to advantage for soups and stews. Cleanliness Is Big Factor. Cleanliness is as necessary in the preparation of vegetables and fruits for drying as in their preparation for canning, perhaps even more so. To secure a fine quality of dried products much depends upon having the vege tables absolutely fresh, young, tender, and perfectly clean. If steel knives are used in paring and cutting have them clean and bright so as not to dis color the vegetable. The earthy smell and flavor will cling to root crops If they are not washed thoroughly before slicing, and one decayed root may fla vor several kettles of soup if the slices from it are scattered through a whole batch of dried material. High-grade dried "root" vegetables can only be made from peeled roots. . • turn ly a to To Dry Irish Potatoes. Select good, sound, well-matured potatoes. (a) Wash and boil or steam until nearly done.

Very small slices or strips j dry more quickly because they expose a greater surface to the air than do larger cut pieces. But If cut too fine they are more difficult to handle in drying, appear to lose somewhat in flavor, and cannot be used so advan tageously to make dishes like those prepared from the freSh foods. In the preparation of large quanti ties of potatoes a peeler may be util ized. The potatoes are thrown by cen trifugal force against a rough surface which, under streams of water provid ed by the perforated tin container above, nicks off the outer skin and leaves only the eyes to be dug out. Blanching of vegetables is consid ered desirable by some housekeepers, although it is not strictly essential to successful drying. It Is claimed that the blanch gives a more thorough cleaning, removes the strong odor and flavor from certain kinds of vegeta bles, and softens and loosens the fiber. Thls allows the moisture in the vege table to evaporate more quickly and uniformly. It also quickly coagulates the albuminous matter in the vegeta bles, which helps to hold in the natural flavors. Blanching consists of plung ing the vegetable into boiling water for a short time. Use a wire basket or cheesecloth bag for this. After blanch- ! ing the required number of minutes, drain well and remove surface mois ture from vegetables by placing be tween two towels or by exposing to the sun and air for a short time. I Preparing Food for Drier. it The slicing machines are not suit able for children's use, for they will cut fingers as mercilessly as they do vegetables and fruits, and even adults should exercise great caution in their use in the home. Jis Is ., . . , ï Although not necessary, tin cans or glass jars make good receptacles for storage of dried fruits sr vegetables. Pasteboard boxes with tight covers, stout paper bags, and patented paraffin paper cartons also afford ample pro tection for dried products when pro tected from insects and rodents. The Good Packing and Storing. dried fruit or vegetables must be pro tected from the outside moisture and will keep best in a cool, dry, well-ven tilated place. These conditions, how ever, are difficult to obtain in the more humid regions, and there moisture tight containers should be used. If a small amount of dried product is put in each receptacle, just enough for one or two meals, it will not be necessary to open a container the con tents of which cannot be consumed in a short time. The use of the small • container also makes It more difficult for Insects to spoil large quantities of dried fruits or vegetables. If a paper bag Is used, the upper part should be twisted into a neck, bent over, and tied tightly with a string. If a further precaution against spoilage is neces sary the bag can be coated with par affin by painting it with a brush which ; has been dipped into melted paraffin. Another precaution may be taken by i placing the small bags in a tin con- \ tainer with a tightly fitting cover, such : as an ordinary lard can or pail. All J bags should bear a label indicating what they contain. If fruits or vegetables are packed in t tight containers immediately upon be ing dried thoroughly, they will remain s just as brittle as they were when ta- S ken from the drier. If, however, they | are not dried thoroughly, they will I sweat" and soon mold. To prevent I I this the material should be examined I within 24 hours after packing, and if I it appears moist it must be dried I further. ! . • To Dry Cauliflower, Clean, divide in small bunches, blanch six minutes, and dry two to three hours at 110 degrees to 145 de grees Fahrenheit. Cauliflower will turn very dark when drying, but will regain part of the color In soaking and cooking. Dried cauliflower is especial ly good in soups and omelets. Brussels sprouts may be handled in a similar way, but add a pinch of soda to the blanching water.. Peeling may be omitted, but the product will be very much inferior in flavor. - y Soup Mixtures.
