New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 8, 1991, New Braunfels, Texas Kaleidoscope Page 6    Herald-Z»/tong,    New    Braunfels,    Texas    Thursday,    August    8,    1991Dear Abby Love affair ends in trip to the altar DEAK ABBY: In December 1987, I sent Christmas cards to all six of the addresses you had in your Operation Dear Abby III column. I received three responses — one was from a Ken Castaneda, serving on the USS Coral Sea. (The others wrote nice letters, but Ken’s wus special.) When Ken received my Christmas card, he was on a Mediterranean cruise, and we corresponded until his ship pulled into Norfolk, Va , ih March of 1988. Ken went on leave to his hometown of Brighton, Colo., and we talked for the first time when he called me in my hometown of St. Charles, Mo. He decided to drive from Colorado through Missouri to meet me on his way back to Virginia. (We still joke that if it hadn’t been “on the wuy" we would not have met.) To make a long story short, we had an awesome time together — and we have had a long-distance relationship since then. But now, we are making our dream come true, as you can see from the enclosed wedding invitation. How can I thank you? TONJA DILLON DEAR TONJA: You just did, and when thia goe« to prest you will be Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Castaneda. Congratulations and all good wishes to you both. DEAR ABBY. I can’t believe you let the woman who didn't know whether to tell her son that his dad is in jail get by with such flippancy ubout the nature of hts crime. Driving drunk is a violent crime. On at least three occasions he could have killed people, and if her big city is like ours (Houston), it’s unlikely that he was caught every time he broke the law, and likely that he was completely over the edge before the police noticed. That she dismissed his level of wrongdoing by saying, "My husband didn’t steal anything, nor did he commit a violent crime, indi cates that she still doesn’t get it. I’d rather have a role model for my child who stole to feed the family, than one who takes others’ lives in his hands so casually and without redemption. DEBRA DANBURG, STATE REPRESENTATIVE, AUSTIN, TEXAS DEAR MS. DANBURG: The mother wrote asking whether she should tell her 6 1/2-year-old son that his father was in jail for a year for driving drunk — or would it be better to say, “Daddy la away on busineas and he may be gone for a long time”? I advised her to tell her son the truth; I didn’t think it was necessary to rub salt in her wounds by reiterating that driving drunk is a very serious crime. She already knows that. DEAR ABBY: In response to the letter from “New Jersey," who asked what to give a nurse and the nurse’s aides for being extra kind to her elderly mother in a nursing home, you replied, “M-O-N-E-Y." Abby, a nurse could get F-I-R-E-D for accepting money from a patient or the patient's family. It is considered unethical for health-care professionals to accept monetary gifts. A card or note expressing sincere appreciation is acceptable and more than adequate. By this time, you have probably heard from several others, right? SEVERAL REGISTERED NURSES, GASTONIA, N.C. DEAR NURSES: "Several hundred” would be more accurate.

Extension Focus Keeping home-canned foods safe to eat By PAT A NOE RS OM RASOR County Extension Agent Taking certain food safety precautions is extremely important in keeping home-canned foods safe to eat. Unfortunately most cases of botulism, a serious food bo me illness that can cause death, comes from home-canned foods. While preventing chances of foodbome illness is important, those who spend time and effort canning foods do not appreciate losing them to food spoilage. Follow the recommended canning procedures to control the processes and microorganisms that can cause spoilage and contamination: The first step is to chooose only fresh produce that is free of signs of detenorauon like bruises, soft spots or other blemishes. Canning does not improve the quality of food. Produce should be canned as quickly after gathering as possible. Proper equipment and procedures are essential. Only standard canning jars should be used. Jars should be clean and free of nicks or scratches. If a product is to be processed less than IO minutes, the jars need to be sterilized by boiling for IO minutes. New lids are required for each jar to aesun an adequate seal. Metal tcrewbflris can be reused if they are free from dents or rust. Use only researched and tested recommendations for the time and temperature processing. The processing time and method depend on the type of food. A pressure canner is required for most vegetables and meats to reach high temperatures required to kill harmful bacteria. Dial gauge pressure canners need to bs tested for accuracy each year and the dial replaced if necessary. A boiling water bath can be used for foods such as fruits and tomatoes because fo their high acid content. Other methods of canning such as in the oven or microwave are not safe. Do not try to create your own recipe or alter ingredients in a tested recipe. Processing recommendations have been tested only for the specified ingredients and may be unsafe if altered. The recommended headspace in JHI is important to allow for expansion of liquid or food in the jar and adequate heat penetration during processing. Too little headspace can cause the food to bubble up and prevent a seal. Jars of food that do not seal properly may be saved if discovered and corrected no more than 24 hours after processing. The food can be refrigerated and vised within a few days. frozen or reprocessed. Freezing and reprocessing do, however, result in a softer texture and reduced nutritional value. To reprocess, remove the lid and check the sealing surface of the jar for nicks or scratches that may have prevented the seal. If necessary, place the food in a new jar. Be sure there are no panicles of food on the edge of the new jar. Add a lid treated according to manufacturer's instructions and screwband. Reprocess the full time given in directions. Proper storage of canned products is important to prevent deterioration or spoilage. Poods should be stored in I clean, cool, dark, dry place. The best storage temperature is SO degrees Fahrenheit to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Foods stored in a hot place will lose quality fast and may spoil. Keep canned goods dry to prevent corrosion of metal lids, broken seals and spoilage. For best storage, use within one year. Signs that indicate spoilage include a broken seal, bulging lid, leaking jar. spurting liquid when jar is opened, off odor, mold, sliminess or improperly colored food.
