Commercially canned fruits are of excellent quality. They can be bought in three grades, Fancy, Choice and Standard. The Fancy includes the finest fruit and is expensive for the homemaker who must figure very closely on food cost. The Choice is also of good quality. It is almost impossible to see any difference in quality between the Fancy and Choice. The Standard is of lower quality but is a clean, attractive and wholesome product. The fruit is likely to be broken and show some blemishes. For most purposes it will meet the needs of the homemaker.
