As to drying, he tells ns that vBven .thei.'Bf3rptiane^1uiew.'about the ;i>roce8�^'/�8;the 'stores of jdehyrated Teg^tablM and fruit's 'tmiiTd^ in their | t�niplei .testify.V Mrj-Pack proceeds: ' Our cdd friend Joseph; tlie,first fooi ''administrator. of whom we liay* > any record, f got his job tjom his big idea? of having Pharaoh corner tlL ti^e - grain in tit* year of : a lilg ' -yield and dehydrate enough of it to keep tlie nation going through years of scarcity. The rest" of'us can do as well as hd^did, for the only intelligeat' co-operation he could �et was that of old'Sdl, who is workiarjuat as well now as he diH then.' Food drjihg is thus no new fad. It appeals to the American people. -The mjetbpd is simple; indeed,'there are fhree* methods. The common method (one might call it the Egyptian method) is to place slices of fruits � or vegetables' on "niuslln lengths and expose thMn to the sun; drying by artificial 'neat is done in an oven or on top of a stove (the trays being suspended over the stove) or in any, specially built dryer; drying by ajr blast includes thie use of an electric Ian, �which is put clpae to one end of stacketl trays on whiich sliced vegetables and fruits have been placed. The food prepar-,ed by^ny one of these methods is cheap, palatable, V and wholesome. ; But'the imaiti reason: why drying has become popular, we think. Is because it is more . economical than canning. Home drying is economical, but community drying is far more, so; the farmers bring their surplus tb a oeiitral plant to be dried; and'pay a small sum for the service or leave i small percentage of their products. �To return to Mr. Pack's artlble; any one, he prophesies, who, can' establish a central dohydrafing*pian't in a community whei^ there" may be ~ a total of several hundred or, a,thousand acres -In gardens will iinaterially lower the cost of living in, tliat community. We learn that.BuffaW liai^} taken the lead in establishing a' community drj-ing ^ kitchen.' Its record has given tho" Tvliole . city.jan Objectflesson in food' conservatic^i. The kitchen � dries on shares for farmers and others. >The output has been principally onions,, potatoes', tur* nips, carrots, cabbage, celery, and soup mixture. For the last named, a quarter-pound package, that sells for twenty-five cents, makes two gallons of soup; there Is also a package selling for' fifteen. cent8,,egough one gallon.
