Description
"An early experimental production line for cutting (halving) fresh apricots, and then blanching them in a steam box. The mechanical tray stacker beyond the blancher holds the trays of hot fruit for immediate dehydrating. The military was seeking a "steam-blanched unsulphured" apricot. Unfortunately, it was unacceptably tart."
