Preserve jam, jelly and other sweet spreads with reduced sugar
As berries and other fruits ripen, many think about preserving the harvest in a sweet form, such as jellies, jams or other sweet spreads. University of Missouri Extension recently released an updated publication called Sweet Spreads and Syrups (GH1461) that explains sugar...’s role in these tasty treats and offers some alternatives for those who are concerned about consuming too much sugar.
For more information on this and many other preservation topics, contact Janet Hackert, Nutrition and Health Education Specialist, (660) 425-6434 or HackertJ@missouri.edu.

Recently a booklet was found about the first 50 years of extension in Harrison County Missouri. The report titled "Excerpts From History 1919-1969," contains numerous entries that are amusing and gave some perspective about how the Extension service has impacted Harrison County. You can find some of the entries here on our website, http://extension.missouri.edu/harrison/exthistharrison.aspx. We wish to update the history of the extension center, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019. If you have any stories or information about the history of MU Extension in Harrison County in specific, please contact us by phone (660)425-6434 or email email@example.com.
