Evaporation of Apples

Description: "While the recent tendency in the apple industry has apparently been to centralize fruit evaporation in distinct commercial establishments having considerable capacity and requiring capital to construct and equip, there sill remain large regions in which there is a considerable surplus of fruit that is unsuitable for packing and shipping in almost every crop year.... Encouragement of evaporating, canning, cider making, and other methods of utilization therefore appears desirable, and of these evaporating is the one that is most applicable at present to a wide range of conditions, and therefore of most importance to the average farmer." -- p. 2. Types of evaporators, methods of preparing and drying fruit, and the marketing and packing of apples are discussed.

Farm and Home Drying of Fruits and Vegetables

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

Muscadine Grape Paste

Description: "Muscadine grape paste is an economical, appetizing, and nutritious sugar-saving substitute for candy and other confections. It is excellent in combination with cheese, and especially with cottage cheese, as a substitute for the salad course or for a dessert. It may be made from the fresh fruit or preferably from the pulp of pomace left from grape juice and jelly making. It may be made with grape sirup or corn sirup instead of sugar. The pulp may be canned and the paste made at any convenient time or when desired for use. The making of muscadine grape paste is recommended for home use, but it may be made profitably for market where grapes are abundant. This bulletin gives directions for securing suitable fruit, the extraction of the pulp, and the sweetening, cooking, drying, and storing of the product, as well as the making of various combinations, fancy pastes, and pastes from other fruits." -- p. 2
