SAVING FOOD SURPLUS
BUREAU OF HUMAN NUTRITION AND HOME ECONOMICS
The Department of Agriculture again urges Americans to preserve the fresh
food surplus. Whether rationing is on or off commercially preserved foods, it's
common sense to grow fruits and vegetables and save the surplus in view of the
constantly changing food picture and the long job to be done during and after the
Canning is one of the best ways to keep many kinds of food when directions,
backed by scientific research, are accurately followed. This year the Department
has worked with State and other agencies in an effort to pool results of home-
canning research and extract all ideas and methods that are best by test. The
aim has been to send this information Nation-wide so that the finest canning
procedures, based on scientific research, will be used as uniformly as possible. A
new 16-page bulletin, giving clear, how-to-do-it directions for recommended ways
of canning has been issued as a result of the Department's research and consulta-
tion with other groups. It includes illustrated directions for adjusting five main
types of jars and seals, and picture pages showing how to can peaches, tomatoes,
and beans. Write for AWI-93, Home Canning of Fruits and Vegetables.8
Pressure canners, necessary for safe canning of meat, poultry, and low-acid
vegetables, must operate efficiently and be handled properly to preserve food safe
to eat. For the information of homemakers, community canning groups, demon-
stration agents, teachers and others interested, AWI-65, Take Care of Pressure
Canners, has been issued.'
S Storage is another method used to preserve less perishable fruits and vegetables
during winter months. Detailed directions for handling those that can be stored
S at home, both on farms and in cities and towns, are given in Farmers' Bulletin
1939, Home Storage of Vegetables and Fruits.8
Drying, one of the oldest methods of preserving food, has long been favored in
warm, cloudless climates where drying is possible out of doors. As the war
progressed and more and more dried foods were sent abroad, dehydration gained

wide public attention. One result was a demand for a simple home method of
drying food indoors. To serve this end there was issued AWI-59, Oven-Drying-
One \i ay to Save Victory Garden Surplus.'
Salting and brining, used the world over for many centuries to preserve food,
have been under research by the Department in cooperation with the North-.
Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station. Methods have been developed for
using relatively a small amount of salt compared to that required In old-time
directions. The result is a saving of vitamins since vegetables brined or salted
by the new methods need little or no soaking before cooking. Farmers' Bulletin :,
1932, Preparation of Fruits and Vegetables by Salting or Brining gives directions
for the newer methods.3 .4
Pickle-making is generally of two types: Shorter processes and the long brine 'i
method that requires 2 months or more for fermentation. A pamphlet giving the
shorter methods including the preparation of pickled fruits and relishes Is .
AWI-103, Pickle and Relish Recipes.' Also available is Farmers' Bulletin 1438, :
Making Fermented Pickles, which includes the long brine method.3 i
Freezing food to preserve it is popular in localities where fruits and vegetables
can be obtained garden-fresh and homemakers have home freezing units or access f l
to community freezer lockers. Directions for preparing foods for freezing and SI
for cooking them later for the table are included in AWI-100, How to Prepare ti him:
Vegetrubles aind Fruits for Freezing."'4. : ."'
