tables, canned ones may eften be
v. used to good advantage. For
instance, a judicious blending of
canned corn with , fresh squash,
celery or tomatoes will result in a
dish which is unusual and delicious.
At the same time the reasonable
price of the canned food will offset
the higher cost of the fresh, and so
will lower the total cost for the
dish. Here are some recipes which
show how canned corn can be com
bined with other foods. .
