MAKING LIMITED SUGAR
SUPPLIES FILL THE FOOD
The following information has
just been received by your county
home demonstration agent, from
Mrs. Winifred J. Leverenz, Ex_
tension Service Food Perservation
Specialist, and you may find it
helpful. Clip this article and pin
it to your canning bulletin.
“Sugar helps most canned fruit
hold its shape, color and flavor.
But sugar is not necessary to keep
fruit from spoiling. When canning
without sugar or with a small
amount of sugar, use the strained
juice from crushed fruit which ras
been heated. Process unsweetened
fruit the same as sweetened.
Make Sugar Syrup according to
availability of Sugar and Personal
Thin Syrup: lcup sugar to 3cups
water or juice—yields 3^4 cups
Medium syrup:—1 cup sugar to
2 cups water or juice—yields 2 3|8
Heavy Syrup: 1 cup sugar W 1
cup water or juice—yields lVs
The general wartime rule is 1
quart of fruit when it is well pack-
ed. A thin syrup is very desirable
from a nutritional standpoint.
Corn syrup or corn sugar may be
substituted for part or all of
sugar. One cup sugar and 2 cups
corn syrup to 6 cups water makes
a desirable syrup. This is a thin
syrup. If corn syrup is to replace
all of the sugar, use % to% cup
com syrup and 1 cup water.
Honey may be used to replace a
small part of the sugar. It affects
the flavor of the fruit more than
corn syrup. It is very good with
canned figs. It is also good with
Never use saccharin in canning.
Heat makes it bitter. If saccharin
is used, it should be abded at the
time you serve the fruit. Consult a
doctor before using it, ^ because
too much saccharin may be harm-
How to make Invert Sugar:
A Flordia Experiment Station
scientist recommends making in-
vert sugar to make it go farther.
To do this, mix 2 cups of sugar
and 1 cup water. Add one_fourth
teaspoon of tartaric acid, (which
you can get at any drug store).
Cover this sugar, water and tar-
taric acid mixture and simmer
gently for 30 minutes. Allow to
cool. You have invert sugar syrup.
Each cup is about one and three-
fourths times as sweet as the same
weight in plain syrup.
This syrup is excellent to use in
canning, but it should be diluted.
Use one-fourth cup of invert sugar
syrup to one cup water for a thin
syrup. It is also good in sweet-
ening fruits, cereals, ice cream and
The above information applies i
to freezing as well as to canning.
] Honey does not freeze as solidly
and it thaws more quickly than
sugar syrup or corn syrup. There-
fore, it is not as satisfactory
Preserves and Jellies
Fill your canning budget first.
If you have enough sugar left,
make a few preserves or jams.
Jellies take more sugar and yield
less food value than any other
method of preserving fruit.
Honey Peach Jam

3 teaspoons broken stick cin-
IV2 teaspoons whole cloves
3 pounds peaches
2 cups honey
3 tablespoons lemon juice
%cup peach juice.
!■ Put spices in cheeesecloth bag.

until of desired consistency. Re-
3. Pour into sterilized jars and
paraffin or seal.
Apple Peach or Pear Pickles
8 pounds firm furit
3 cups honey
3 cups vinegar
2 cups water.
2 tablespoons broken stick cin-
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon allspice.
Mix liquid ingredients. Add
spices which have been tied in a
bag. Add salt. Bring to boil. Add
fruit and cook until tender. Let
stand over night. In the morning
remove spices. Drain the syrup
from fruit and boil syrup rapid-
ly until thickened. Pack fruit in_
to clean, hot, sterile jars. Pour
syrup over fruit, filling jars to top.
Seal tightly with hot lids.
Cockroaches and their Control
The offensive, sickening, odor
associated with cockroaches is due
to an oily liquid secreted by scent
glands. This oil leaves the char-
acteristic roachy odor wherever
the insects are abundant. Food is
ruined by it, and dishes over which
cockroaches run may seem appar-
ently clean yet' give off the odor
when warmed unless thoroughly
washed in hot water and soap.
Cockroach elimination is not dif-
ficult if the source of infestation
can be controlled. In loosely con-
structed buildings or where a mild
climate permits roaches to develop
outdoors, houses are constantly be_
ing reinfested from outside by
crawling or flying roaches. No con.
trol will keep a house free from
roaches continously if sources
of infestation exist.
One of the best ways to prevent
roaches from becoming established
vals of a week or two until all
Pyrethrum powder is used in the
same way as sodium fluoride, and
is excellent if thoroughly applied
to the hiding places or to the
roaches themselves. It quickly
stupefies the roaches. They usual.

in a home is to watch carefully all h ^ Iive for some time_
‘ of food supplies
baskets or boxes
and are frequently carried from
place to place. Kill these stray
roaches with a fly swatter, or if
they are encountered unexpectedly
and no weapon is at hand, crush
them underfoot. Trade at roach-
Crack fillers, such as putty,
plastic wood, or plaster of paris
can be used effectively in closing
many openings used by roaches as
i avenues of escape to hiding places.
These cracks and openings can be
located by watching the roaches
run for concealment. Fill all
cracks about water and steam
pipes passing through floors,
cracks leading to spaces behind
baseboards, door and window trim,
etc. This is particularly important
if roaches are coming into the
room from adjoining apartments,
through wall spaces, along the
plumbing, or beneath doors.
Sodium fluoride powder
is poisonous to man
ternaliy in sufficient amounts, and
it should be kept out of focd and
away from children and pets, but
if used carefully in roach control,
no damage will follow. It may be
applied with a small duster or bel-
lows, or better, with a modern
they eventually rie if thoroughly
treated. The stupefied roaches
should be swept up and destroyed
several hours after treatment be-
fore those least affected can re-
vive. Pyrethrum powder is a safe
remedy and will not injure man or
pets. Upon exposure to air it loses
its effectiveness after some days,
and only fresh, finely ground pow-
der should be used.
