Photos by James Bud Edgerton sugar too High try substitutes when sugar prices Are High what else can you try Corn syrup Honey and Maple syrup Are Good substitutes says miss Anna Wilson Vermont Extension nutritionist. They Are Good sweeteners for breakfast Cereal fruits dessert toppings beverages candied vegetables or meat glazes. And they can be adapted to All your favorite recipes miss Wilson adds. She offers this guide when replacing sugar with Corn syrup use one third the amount of sugar and substitute Corn syrup Tor the rest. Add two extra table spoons of syrup for each cup of sugar in the recipe. Reduce the liquid by 14 cup for each cup used. In using Honey replace one cup of sugar with one cup of Honey and deduct 1 1 cup liquid. Use 14 Teaspoon soda for each cup of Honey used plus baking powder in the Orginia recipe. Maple syrup is about two thirds sucrose White sugar syrup. Molasses is about three fourths. It is this difference in sweetness Between syrups that accounts for the flavor variation. Home demonstration notes making botanical lamp shades tips on kabobs and Spray starch by Marion s Harris Home demonstration agent last week i had an Opportunity to go to Rutland to observe the Home demonstration training school on making botanical lamp shades. I was quite impressed and so were mrs. Clare Nolan Bennington county Council president and mrs. Mary Lourie Council director who accompanied me. This is a program which will be taught in Bennington county on sept. 24 and 25 by mrs. Beth Mun Ger the Rutland county Home demonstration agent. Some things i found out were that the decorative plants should be gathered at once and pressed ii m Rogers amp sos 50 pc. Silver placed Fla Wear set special s34� $1.50 weekly Fienberg a 447 main St. Bennington it. Farm supplies a top dressing j bulk spread Baler twine Whitman a feed store no. Bennington it. Dial 442-2851 Between layers of tissues in the pages of magazines. Some of the Lovely shades were made by using some of our common weeds and grasses. Fine feathery plants seemed to work out Best. I saw a Lovely Shade using Cosmos leaves another of a Fine grass seed and Queen Annex a lace. Asparagus Fern was especially Nice and baby s breath also worked out very nicely. Those who Are going to make these shades should get Busy now to press the plants to decorate them. For the shades the instructor used White fibreglass with a frosted plastic cover. The plants used for decorating Are placed Between in a decorative grouping. They Are punched and laced with raffia and the completed shades had a Gold and White look that really was Lovely. Kabobs if you like kabobs nere Are some Kabob combinations you might want to try beef cubes mushrooms and sliced onions. Franks Cut into 1-Inch pieces pineapple chunks and sliced Bacon. Chicken livers slices of Bacon and mushrooms. Beef cubes with quartered tomatoes carrots and Small cooked onions. Cubes of Bologna sliced onion and sliced Bacon. Ham with Sweet potato and pineapple chunks. To serve push the cooked Kabob from the skewer onto a toasted Bun a chunk of split French bread or directly onto the plate. Spray on starch Spray on starch can be a Boon to homemakers but to obtain Good results Here Are some suggestions that May help 1. Shake the can before and during use. This assures Best utilization of the starch solution. 2. Be sure the Arrow on the nozzle Points to the red Dot on the can. 3. Tilt the can Only slightly while spraying. If an aerosol can is tilted More than 45 degrees from the straight upright position the pure propellant will escape. 4. Hold the nozzle 6 to 12 inches from the fabric and press the Button firmly. A Fine Spray assures even searching. After each use remove the Spray Button and Wash under warm water replace Button so the Arrow matches the red Dot. Spray starch cannot always replace regular starch. However if Only a Little searching is needed a Spray can be More convenient than regular searching. Summer blouses and collars and cuffs of dresses and shirts Are Good examples. While ironing homemakers also find it easy to use the new method to touch up articles that have been starched unevenly. The decision to use Spray starch is based on Cost versus time. If you have a big Basket of White shirts or organdy curtains it s More economical to make your own starch. But if you re pressed for time then Spray starch is the answer. A Low Cost Spray starch can be made by using instant starch. Put it into a Jar with a pressurized Spray nozzle which can be bought in some of our hardware stores. This makes an economical and Quick starch for touch up purposes. One word of caution however keep this in the refrigerator and do not keep it More than two weeks at the most. Second generation business flourishes Midland Tex. Apr the Friday boys Are still pounding leather in this cattle country. Ever since world War i members of the Friday family have been making boots and saddles for cowboys and ranchers in the area. There were eight Brothers in the Friday family and seven of them got into the family business owned by Truman Friday. Truman Learned tooling from the various Saddle makers employed by his father and figures he must have a wasted about $1,-000 Worth of leather in the now he does not work patterns just grabs a tooling bit and Mallet and free hands the design. He recalls that the fridays once made 23 pairs of boots for Gene Autry and they turned out More than too Sam Brown belts and holsters for Midland policemen. They also take Pride in the holsters and belts they make for Texas rangers. Farm families should take vacations summer weather has treated county Well by John c. Page county agricultural agent the Dairy business is 365-Day a a year stuff and it is doubtful of Man was meant to go year after year without a break. The older folks on our farms never dreamed that it might be possible for them to get away for a Day or two or a week or two. Even today you have to tax yourself to find folks who Haven to missed a milking since they were married. The Pace of modern agriculture and modern living Isnit quite so easy As it was in grandpas Day. If he were Here today chances Are head be looking for a vacation now and then too. Anyhow today a younger and Middle aged farm families have found that they can get away from the everyday grind like other folks. Any Farmer or Farmers wife can think up at least to Good reasons Why they can to get away. All these can be overcome by doing what you a do if you were Hurt and hospitalized. Then someone would take Over. When something does go wrong and the Farmer can to oversee the farm things usually hold together better than anticipated. This would be so while you Are on vacation too. I think All farm families would do Well to get away for a few Days a like in August a when work in t pushing too hard.
