C— The fer mentation method widely used abroad In preserving string beans, beets, cabbage, cucumbers and other succulent garden crops, is described in a notice Just issued by the United States Department of Agriculture. Sauerkraut and pickles put up in this way are fairly well known in this country, but comparatively few persons have thought of trying it as a household measure for preserving these and other vegetables. Those who like acid foods and who have too few canning containers to hold I heir surplus products may find this method useful. The following de scription of this method of ferment ing vegetables is prepared by one of the bacteriologists in the Bureau of Chemistry who has been experiment ing with this process. The vegetables are not cooked, but are put down in a salt ririne in any non-metal water-tight container and are sealed up with paraffin and are otherwise made air-tight. Under this treatment lactic acid will de velop and this acid, tho value of which as food has been recognized, acts as a preservative Whether Americans will develop a taste for such fermented foods highly prized in Europe, is open to question, but the investigator believes that many will find the process well worth trying. To Preserve Cucumbers Wash the fruit if necessary and pack into a clean, water-tight bar rel, keg, or crock. On the bottom of the barrel place a layer of dill weed and a handful of mixed spice. Add another layer of dill and another handful of mixed spice when the bar rel is half lull and when almost full add a third layer. 11' a keg or crock is used, the amount of dill and spice can be reduced In proportion to the size of lie receptacle. When the con tainer has been tilled within a few inches of the top, add a layer of cov ering material—beet tops or grape leaves—about an Inch thick. If any spoilage should occur on tho surface, this layer will protect the vegetables beneath. Press down with a clean board weighted with bricks or stone. Do not use limestone or sandstone. Make a brine by adding one pound of salt to IP quarts of water. To each 10 quarts of brine so made add two-thirds of a quart of vinegar. The vinegar is used primarily to keep down the growth of injurious bac teria until the lactic acid ferment •tarts, but It also adds to the flavor. Add sufficient brine to cover the ma terial and allow to stand 24 hours. Then make air-tight, as described below. The time necessary for com plete fermentation to occur depends upon the temperature. In a warm place only five days to a week may bo necessary; in a cool cellar three to four weeks. Heels ami Siring Beam The rings should be removed from string beans before they are put up. Beets, of course, require careful washing to remove all dirt before brining. It it Is desired, when finally the beets or string beans are to be eaten, to wash out the brine and serve them as fresh vegetables, the addition of spice when they are put up is not necessary, proceed as with cucumbers. Make Containers Air-tight. There always will be more or less bubbling and foaming of the brine during the first stages of fermenta tion, After this cases a thin film will appear which will spread rapidly over the whole surface and develop quickly into a heavy, folded mem brane. This scum is a growth of yeast-like organisms which feed up on the acid formed by fermentation. If allowed to prow undisturbed it will eventually destroy all the acid and he fermented material will spoil. To prevent this scum from forming ii is necessary to exclude Hie air from the surface of the brine. This should be done by either of two met hods. 24 hours alter the veget ables have been packed. Perhaps the best method la to cover the surfaceover ihi board and around the weight —with very hot, melted paraffin. if the paraffin is sufficiently hot to make the brine boll when poured upon if, the parf fiu will form a smooth, even layer before hardening. Upon solidifying. it effects an air-tight seal. Oils, such as cottonseed oil or the tasteless liquid petroleum, may also be used for this purpose. As a maesure of safety with crocks, it is advisable to cover the top -with a cloth soaked in melted paraffin. Put the cover In place before the paraffin hardens. The second method, which may be used with barrels or kegs, is to pack the container as full as possible and then replace the head. In using this method for fermentation of beets, cucumbers, or string beans, add the hoard and weights as described above and allow to stand for 24 hours be fore heading. During this period most of the gas first formed escapes and the container then may be head ed up tight, first removing the board and weights. Then bore an Inch hole in the bead and fill the barrel with brine, allowing no air space. Allow more brine, if possible, and plug the vent tight. If the barrel does not leak, fermented products put up in this manner will keep indefinitely. After sealing with paraffin the containers should be set where they will not be disturbed until the con tents are to be used. Any attempt to remove them from one place to an other may break the paraffin seal and necessitate resealing. If the containers are not opened until cold winter weather, the vegetables should keep without spoilage until they are used up. If opened in warm weather they are likely to spoil quite rapidly unless the paraffin is re heated and the container resealod immediately. In the case of cucum bers and chayotes, it is preferable, if enough material is available, to use the method of packing in kegs or barrels as described above. j Only those vegetables which can not be kept by storing or early ones that are not available later In the season, should be preserved. Late beets, for example, can be better kept In the cellar. The method of putting up cabbage by fermentation has a number of ad vantages over the present process of making sauerkraut and will be de scribed in a later article. A circular describing the fer mentation method is now available for distribution from the States Re lation Service of the Department of Agriculture. .
