"The thousands of vacationists who come to enjoy Maine's famous recreational facilities each year take away with them also a long-lasting respect for our good Maine foods.

From their frequent inquiries, it is apparent that very few realize how many of these foods are available the year 'round in their own communities.

So we have prepared this combination recipe book and directory of Maine Canned Foods to make it easy for these good friends to distinguish, in their local markets, the many products packed in the State of Maine from foods grown here and from sea foods caught in Maine coastal waters.

Those, too, who have not yet enjoyed first-hand a real "Down East" meal, but who have a discerning taste for high quality and distinctive flavor in foods, will find it worthwhile to look for the labels of Maine canners when they buy canned sweet corn, beans, peas, blueberries, clams, sardines, crab meat and other sea foods."
