Farm and Home Drying of Fruits and Vegetables

Farm and Home Drying of Fruits and Vegetables

Date: 1918
Creator: Caldwell, Joseph S. (Joseph Stuart)
Description: "Imperative necessity demands nation-wide conservation of those portions of our food crops which have heretofore been permitted to go to waste. A considerable portion of this wasted food material is made up of perishable fruits and vegetables produced in home gardens and fruit plats in excess of the immediate needs of the producers and in the absence of accessible markets for the surplus. Drying offers a simple, convenient, and economical method for preserving food materials and permits the carrying over of the surplus into periods in which fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive or unobtainable.... Directions for the preparation, drying, and subsequent storage and care of the dried products are given fully for each of the more important fruits and vegetables." -- p. 2

Drying Fruits and Vegetables in the Home with Recipes for Cooking

Date: 1917
Creator: United States. Dept. of Agriculture.
Description: "Fruits and vegetables may be dried in the home by simple processes and stored for future use. Especially when canning is not feasible, or cans and jars are too expensive, drying offers a means of saving large quantities of surplus products which go to waste each year in garden and fruit plots. Drying also affords a way of conserving portions of food which are too small for canning. The drying may be done in the sun, over the kitchen stove, or before an electric fan. Manufacturers have placed driers on the market. Homemade driers are satisfactory.... The principles, methods, and equipment are described in the following pages." -- p. 2
