You can also save cleaning time
and keep pots attractive if you rub
some liquid detergent over their
exteriors before using. This proce
dure prevents pots from turning
black over an open flame. When
you have finished cooking, wipe
pot exteriors with a damp cloth.
You will find that the detergent
serves as a protective shield be

soot from the fire.

Here’s a juicy piece of news:
That’s delicious “fruit juice” you
enjoy many mornings may not be
pure juice at all. Fortunately, the
Food and Drug Administration’s
new Nutrition Labeling and Edu
cation Act makes it easier to tell
what you’re really buying. Here
are some tips for selecting 100
percent pure fruit juice, from the
Florida Department of Citrus:
• Look for the words “100 Per
cent Pure Juice” on the label.
• Watch out for “juicy” product
names. Words like “juice cock
tail,” “drink,” “punch,” “spark
ler,” and “beverage” are often
clues that the product is mostly
sweeteners and water.
