DRY REMAINING SURPLUS
Dry Surplus Fruits and Vegetables
in Your Home
There is no difficulty about home drying fruits
and vegetables. Sun drying of fruit was a
common enough home industry a few years ago.
A few homemade shallow trays and a little
mosquito netting are all you need for sun drying.
A few trays bent out of coarse wire netting and
fitted like removable shelves into a lath frame
are all you need to dry over your range or gas
stove or before an electric fan.
Yes. There have been recent improvements;
in grandmother's successful method. It has
been found that currents of air are better than ,
heat in removing surplus water.
Water is all that is taken out; flavor, texture,
and food value are not impaired. Soaking and
cooking restore the succulent quality so im-
portan in the winter diet.
Dried products can be kept in paper con-
