To wash, or not to wash canned peas! That is the question that has troubled cooks and housewives without number since the days when the canning industry was in its infancy. Today the washing of canned peas has become, with many, one of those sacred tradi tions that cannot be traced back to its origin. But like The Ivory Door, in the play bv A A Miin !t is one of those legends which one does not care to deny. Apparently even th hsr book makers dodge-the issue. Of ten an author will advise washing canned peas in one recipe and will -usgesi using them as they come from the can in another recipe. Are we to believe that canned peas should be washed for one recipe, and not washed for an other? Or are we to investigate for ourselves, and reach our own con clusions, haspr' nn foot TV, ? ... 1 J1C 1UI- lowing facts s,: I t'.iw canning nf peas have bee.. . dieted to nahi housewives telligently, one aad for all times to the perph- ng question of whether or not canned rws cknnirf be washed before using. From Vine to Can In the largest the world there is only a two hour nrai Detween the time that the peas are growing in the field and the time they are sealed in cans Here Is the history of those two hours: The pea crop is harvested with mowing machine, and is trans ported, on the vi vine. .-.!

Peas Get Many Baths The hulled peas are. put into bcxes holding about 4 0 pounds, and rushed by motor truck to the factory. Immediately upon their first cold water bath, and are passed through a machine where any leaves or stems still remain ing after the first cleaning opera tion, are floated off. The peas are then elevated bv machinery to graders, which are huge cylinder-like affairs with holes graded to the 16th of an inch. Passing down throuzh Mitns ana penoraiea graders the oas par are automatically washed a second time and graded in from three to six sites. The next step is a blanch, or a Drecook. which gives them their third wash. This blanch is a quick hot bath, with the temperature of the water at 190 degrees. They pass from the blanch to a cold water spray, for their fourth bath. From the cold spray they pass down. thinly spread over wide, long white rub ber aprons, where they are given :lose human inspection. Then they are fed with the cooked sugar, water and salt into a machine which feeds peas and liquor into sterile cans that have just emerged irom the ltvesteam sterilizms arf are ontrol, at a uniform tempera ture, for a specified length of cime. Next the cans are given an external cold water bath to cool the contents so as to insure safe storage, and they are then stored in the warehouse. The labels arc not put on the cans until the peas are to be boxed and shipped. And so fact, and not legend, de cides the point as-to whether can ned peas should be washed or not. For there is no more rime nor reason in the washing of canned peas after taking them from the ran than thrre would be in wash ing canned peaches, or canned to matoes or any other food that Is prepared and canned under mod ern scientific and hygienic meth- Savc Nourishing liquor The liquor covering the peas is rfch in food value (it contains the soluable vitamins from the peas) and it should be preserved to use in soups or sauces. The peas are clean, since so much water is used to wah them that a pea can nery Is the wettest yraco in the world. Peas used just as they come from the can are sweet, full of flavor, sterife and wholesome. Rickey Family Returns After Extended Tour RICKEY. Ore.. Sept. 20.
