that our senior Senator has not

Non-acid vegetables such as corn,
peas, beans, and squash cannot be
safely canned in a hot water can-
ner at 212 degrees temperature.
They should be canned in a steam
pressure canner where the pressure
can be regulated to give a tem
perature high enough to kill bac
teria and their spores. A pressure
of 10 pounds will raise ' the tem
perature to 240 degrees Farenheit,
which is 28 degrees hotter than the
boiling point and will safely pre
serve most non-acid vegetables.
A few vegetables such as sweet
potatoes and corn require an even
higher temperature to destroy
spores. They are canned at 15
pounds pressure with a temperature
of 250 degrees F.
