U.S. Pat. No. 2,801,929:  Method of making canned chinese food.


Having thus described my invention, what I claim is: 

A method of preparing a Chinese food package which comprises, placing substantially raw, unseasoned Chinese food vegetables in a can, sealing the can while the vegetables are in the unseasoned and substantially raw state, sterilizing the can containing the vegetables which are unseasoned and substantially raw whereby they maintain their individual crispness and taste, preparing a separate, cooked sauce for the Chinese food vegetables, seasoning the sauce to an extent to provide substantially all the seasoning for both the sauce and the vegetables when the two are admixed, canning and sterilizing the sauce, and then packaging the sauce and vegetables together for sale as a single unit.
