Ahhh, canned fruit. Back in the 70's/80's when we had a lumber business I would always eat at the corner store (a lot of the millhands did, too). Ordering was simple, because he had fried chicken and one other plate per day. The plate always, and I mean always, came with some canned peaches. To this day I feel like I'm sitting at one of the small picnic tables behind the store whenever I eat canned peaches.

Don't kid yourself into thinking those canned veggies and fruit were any better for you then the processed foods of today. The real difference is that you were probably more active and ate smaller portions then you do today.
