Peas of excellent quality when covered to too great a depth with liquor deteriorate in appearance as can be determined by inserting a spoon and raising the peas gently but without appreciably disturbing the liquor. On the other hand, if there is not sufficient liquor to cover the peas, they are not generally attractive, and if very short of liquor, they become pasty. It is important, therefore, to use just enough liquor to cover the peas. The No. 2 can generally used is popularly supposed to mean a 2-pound can, and is often so billed and referred to in market reports, but it docs not hold 2 pounds and should be given its proper designation. The average till of a can is such that after processing there will be 14 ounces of peas (400 grams)and ounces (200 grams) of liquor. The can weighs 100 grams, making a total of 700 grams or 25 ounces. Any very marked deviation from these figures in the direction of reducing the proportion of peas would evidently be an adulteration with water, while any considerable increase in the proportion of peas would result in dryness. Cans containing only 11 or 12 ounces of peas are evidently short weight, though a customer cannot reasonably demand more than 15 ounces as a maximum and expect a good appearance. A can of marrowfat or telephone peas will not weigh as much by about three fourths ounce (20 grams) as a can of the smaller-sized peas if the fill be the same. The " sifted " pea, or No. 3 size, is the heaviest in the commercial grading. The " extra sifted " and the " petits pois " are the most expensive to the canner, and the tendency is to cut slightly in the weight, usually about three fourths of an ounce, ...
