opportunities and the increase in manufacturing during the war and how that impacted tradesmen. Continuing on to the parlor of Potter Mansion, visitors will gain insight into the women’s efforts to support troops through sewing and making clothing, which was in scarce supply. The next stop will be the Potter General Store for an ear on a conversation between a shopkeeper and customer about the separation of the southern states, lack of cotton textiles, and how suppliers and consumers from both the North and South were affected. The tour concludes in Gilbert Farmstead, where the group will experience the family’s preparation for the wake of one of their members who died while in service to his country. The storytelling tour recognizes the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Those who are intrigued and fascinated by Civil War history and want to learn more about life during this period, are urged to attend this unique and educational learning experience. Storrowton Village plans to present four such programs each year. Reservations are required and the price to attend is $8 per person. Please note: The program contains vivid descriptions of wartime violence and injury that may not be suitable for young audiences. Those interested may call the Village at 413-2055051 or email storrow@ for more information.

Easy-to-Make Jam and Jelly Recipes (Family Features) With fresh inspiration from the season’s juiciest, most delicious fruits, you can create jams, jellies and other spreads with ease right from your own kitchen. For many, the thought of turning their favorite fruits into sweet and scrumptious jams and jellies may sound like countless hours in a hot, stuffy kitchen. But creating your own, homemade fruit spreads can be quite simple with the right ingredients and tips. “Any cook can create delightful jams and jellies, regardless of their canning abilities,” said Shirley Camp, M.S., registered dietitian,

cooking, saving time without a messy kitchen.” Four canning tips for great jams and jellies For the best results for your canning creations, follow these four simple tips for canning success: 1. Pick ’em right. When picking berries, keep in mind these fruits have high water content and are very fragile. So, use smaller containers when picking them so the berries do not get crushed under their own weight. 2. Rinse, don’t soak. Due to their fragile nature, the berries should be lightly “rinsed” to remove surface dirt. Do not allow them to sit in water for very long because they tend to take on more

water and will become mushy. 3. Firm and ripe When selecting berries for jellied products, ripe berries are best, but not overripe ones. Choose those that have good flavor and are still firm to the touch. For strawberries, look for the smaller, juicier berries instead of larger types that are available today. 4. Mix flavors. While many people prefer their jams to be one flavor, mixing two or more different types of berries together produces great jams with good flavor. Try a mix consisting of blackberry and red raspberry, or strawberry with red raspberry. Another great combination includes pureed berries and peaches mixed together to make jam. Red raspberry peach jam is always a huge hit. For canning or preservation questions, call the Mrs. Wages Customer Care Center at 1-800-647-8170, Monday– Friday 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. CST. For additional canning recipes and how-to information, visit www.mrswages. com Fresh, flavorful canning recipes Whether you need a sweet topping for a slice of breakfast toast or a dollop for thumbprint cookies, these simple jam and jelly recipes are sure to please everyone in your family. From the ease of

Fast Fruity Freezer Jam to the cool blast of Mint Jelly, these recipes all feature Mrs. Wages fruit pectin, which provides the perfect consistency to enhance all your favorite fruit flavors.

calendars. Themes: A theme isn’t always necessary, but it almost always makes the party – and party planning – more fun and memorable. “Themes for children’s parties are now more sophisticated with a touch of whimsy, while adults are planning party themes based on the personality or interests of the guest of honor,” said Nease. Decorations: “A growing trend at parties today is a personalized banner featuring photos or decorative elements to reinforce the party theme,” said Nease. And many party hosts are going the DIY route. These banners can easily be designed and printed at home. All it takes is ribbon or

twine to tie it all together. Photos: Sharing photos online is a fun alternative to renting costly photo booths. Just create a group hashtag to share and consolidate photos through a content-sharing service such as Instagram. The hashtag makes it easy to create an online photo album to share with guests as soon as the party ends. Food: “A gorgeous cake is still the centerpiece of any birthday party, but why not put a twist on a traditional party centerpiece and display a tower of cupcakes,” Nease suggested. Look no further than Morton Salt as the inspiration for that cupcake centerpiece. To celebrate
