On November 3

On this day in ...
... 1952 (60 years ago today), according to multiple sites, Clarence Birdseye 1st marketed frozen peas. His was not the 1st frozen-food product, but it was the 1st to maintain an acceptable level of the taste of the vegetable in the course of the freezing process. It also appears, perhaps coincidentally, that today is National Housewives Day. Birdseye, who died 4 years later, was the subject of a highly publicized biography, published just this past May.
