Drying Fruits and Vegetables in the Home with Recipes for Cooking

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

Home Gardening in the South

Description: Revised edition. "A well-kept vegetable is a source not only of profit to the gardener but of pleasure to the entire family. For many vegetables which deteriorate rapidly in quality after being gathered, the only practicable means of securing the best is to grow them at home. This is especially true of garden peas, sweet corn, string beans, green Lima beans, and asparagus. The land utilized for, the farm garden, if well cared for, yields much larger returns than any area of similar size planted to the usual farm crops. A half-acre garden should produce as much in money value as 2 or 3 acres in general farm crops. In most sections of the South, though vegetables can be grown in nearly every month of the year, the garden is neglected; in fact, no feature of southern agriculture is more neglected than the production of vegetables for home use. In the following pages specific instructions are given for making a garden and caring for it throughout the season." -- p. 2
