HERBS & SPICES by Kathy Wolfe

What’s in your cupboard? This week, Tidbits takes a look at the culinary and medicinal uses of the herbs and spices found in nearly everyone’s home. • The Egyptians were studying the use of herbs as far back as 3500 B.C., using them for medicine and in their religious rituals. Today, about 7,000 compounds used in medicine originate from plants. About 200 million pounds (90,718,474 kg) of herbs and spices are consumed in the U.S. annually. The most common are black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic, paprika, chili powder, oregano, celery seed, and parsley. • There’s a difference between herbs and spices. Generally, herbs are the leaves of a plant, while spices are taken from the roots, bark, or seeds. This means rosemary, thyme, and mint are herbs, and cinnamon, paprika, coriander, and nutmeg are spices. • Botanically, peppermint is known as Mentha piperita. It not only freshens your breath, it’s been shown that inhaling peppermint oil can relieve motion sickness and an upset stomach. Some clinical trials indicate its effectiveness in relief of irritable bowel syndrome and tension headaches. Peppermint oil can even repel annoying bugs! • Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice and has been used in trade for more than 4,000 years. It comes from the dried threads of the saffron

Retail prices for saffron can spike as high as $5,000 per pound. Some medical studies suggest that this spice has antioxidant and cancer-suppressing properties and might also be helpful in treating depression. In the kitchen, it’s used in Indian and Pakistani sweet dishes and Italian risotto. It’s also used in religious rituals in India. • Vanilla is second most expensive spice after saffron. It’s no wonder vanilla is an expensive commodity when you consider the labor required to process it. It comes from the pod of the only fruitbearing orchid plant, with a waiting period of three years after being planted before the first flowers appear. The flower opens only one day a year, and each one is hand-pollinated in order to produce a pod. Those pods remain on the vine for another nine months and when harvested, have no flavor or fragrance. Those qualities develop during the extensive curing process, when the pods are treated with hot water before being placed in the sun for months. During this time, they shrink to about one-fifth of their original size. It’s another month or two of “resting” before the pods develop their distinctive aroma and taste. • Vanilla takes its name from the Spanish word Vaina, which translates “little pod.” Vanilla extract is made by finely chopping the beans and dripping alcohol on the pieces. • Nutmeg is harvested from the seeds of the fruit Continued on page 6

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Find suitable ways to alleviate stress and offset demands this week. Everyone seems to want too much, too soon, and all at your expense. You may be too attractive for your own good. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Reciprocity is the name of the game. During the upcoming week, be sure to return favors and reimburse people for their kindnesses. Assume that every gift and coupon has a string attached. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Set your financial goals. During the week ahead, you may gain the ear of an ally or supporter at work. Listen to a friend who may have his or her finger on the pulse of a money-making proposition. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Live in the moment, but don’t forget that it’s just a moment. You might be charming and likeable, but when the attention fades later this week, you must show solid accomplishment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can’t please all the people all the time. Take a breather before you begin your next major undertaking. It’s possible there will be a few loose ends to tend to in the week to come. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Live and learn. You can only do your best until you know better. But once you know better, you have no choice but to do better. In the upcoming week, take your life lessons to heart. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Focus on friendships this week. Group meetings, associations and clubs can help you do better in business or offer ideas to help you fulfill your financial ambitions. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Not everyone who smiles at you is your friend. You needn’t be suspicious of everyone in the week ahead, but do be leery of anything that sounds too good to be true. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The urge to mingle and socialize is strong this week, so get out there. Expect to pay your dues, as you could meet up with people who glitter but aren’t golden. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Major transitions might alter your relationships and boost your ambitions, but this may mean longer hours and more stress. The need for better organization becomes evident in the week ahead. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Extra spit and polish may be in order. No one may notice your concerns or fears, but they’ll certainly notice your mistakes. Make an effort to put your best foot forward all week. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let dogma dampen your determination. Philanthropic ideals might not work well in the real world this week. Focus on achieving financial ambitions through hard work, not investments.

In “Death on Eat Street,” Zoe Chase finally has taken a giant leap toward her dream of opening her own restaurant, despite the disapproval of her posh parents and sexist ex. For now it’s just a dingy diner and a rickety food truck, but she’s beginning to make a name in the community with her inventive and addictive biscuit bowls. But when her biggest rival is found murdered in her truck, Zoe finds herself at the center of a tangled criminal investigation involving everyone from a celebrity chef to a former president.

“The Pickled Piper” by Mary Ellen Hughes “Death on Eat Street” by JJ Cook Reviewed by Ealish Waddell Sometimes there’s nothing as tasty as a good cozy mystery, and two recent food-themed titles offer some juicy plots for armchair sleuths to chew on. The hamlet of Cloverdale seems to have taken a shine to newly transplanted resident Piper Lamb and the homemade concoctions she sells in her shop, Piper’s Picklings. But then “The Pickled Piper,” aka the town bully, is found dead in Piper Lamb’s pickle barrel, and suspicion falls instantly on her assistant’s bohemian boyfriend. Piper and her neighbors throw themselves into playing detective, trying to clear his name, but as more townspeople are murdered and attacks of vandalism against Piper herself begin to escalate, she begins to fear that she may be the villain’s next target.

Although one novel is set in a small upstate New York town and the other in the streets of urban Alabama, both of these books are chock full of the spice, salt and interconnectedness of community life, both for good and for bad. Each also centers around a w o m a n trying to reinvent her life in a culinary venture -- and the inclusion of recipes in both is an especially delicious perk.

A great group of kids just gave us another reason to believe the next generation will be great citizens of the world. The grade 7 class at St. Agnes School had a month long Action Plan to raise money for the Humane Society within their school community. The students had one of the shelter staff visit the class, followed by a field trip to the Shelter to see the animals they were helping. These enterprising young people contacted local businesses such as Superstore, Maple Leaf Bakery, Bunsmaster Bakery and Tim Hortons, who generously donated items for the students to hold a bake sale and twice-weekly freezie sales. Students also baked their own items to sell. With the help of their hungry student customers, the class raised $457.30! The students loved having the chance to meet Fatboy and all his friends. Thanks, Grade 7s, you did an amazing job and you are making a difference to pets in need. It is wonderful to see such community spirit.

RISING STARS

RELIC / AKA /RELMCCOY Take the following ingredients. 1.Emcee 2. D.J. 3. Producer 4. Engineer 5.Singer Combine these five into a single creative mind, and you have an artist that, well… does a lot of stuff. Now add a can of “ Do it real real good “ and you’re getting close. Add to this, husband, father, and entrepreneur and you have an idea of what makes up the artist known as Relic. You have to admit,the whole thing sort of makes the term “Triple Threat” feel like it showed up in jean shorts for a black tie affair. Rel is not your fly by night rapper, but rather holds the mic with the presence of an old school veteran emcee, shaping words into hard hitting projectiles that just hurt so good. As if that wasn’t enough, he incorporates a brand of singing that is soulful and genuine. Savage listeners are tamed, of whom, not a few wish they hadn’t brought their girlfriend along. That being said, Rel‘s 2013 Independent Music award nomination for best album in the hip hop category was well deserved. In the last 3 years, Rel has been on 7 tours spanning across Canada and the U.S., and played numerous shows in his native southern Ontario. The traction with live shows and social media presence has helped Relic and producer Fresh Kils land an album grant from the Ontario Arts Council in late 2012. His honest and soulful approach to music can be clearly heard on Rel’s latest self produced record, GOLDEN. From one release to the next, Rel McCoy continues to embody the bold and vulnerable spirit of hip hop culture, with unrelenting tenacity.

GHETTOSOCKS Ghettosocks is a JUNO nominated artist born in Ottawa and living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. In a short period of time, Socks has expanded his fan base from across Canada, to Europe, South America, Australia, Japan, and into the United States. His unorthodox songwriting style and energetic live performances have placed Socks in high demand bot nationally and internationally. Constantly touring various regions of Canada, having embarked on three American tours, five European tours, plus an introductory Japenese tour, Socks has become a seasoned performer. Aside from providing support for a whoèswho of established artists, Socks has been steadily headlining more and more of his own shows, making him an up-and-comer to check for. Ghettosocks combines sharp, witty punch lines, with clever pop-culture references over an ecclectic mix of instumental landscapes. Socks is an interesting breed of artist who somehow manages to appeal to extremely diverse and fickle rap (and nonrap) audiences.

¥ Add a cinnamon stick or softener sheet to your vacuum bag when you change it. As you clean, you will distribute the good smell throughout your home. ¥ To ripen a green tomato, wrap it in a sheet of newspaper or place it in a paper bag. It can then be left on the counter for several days to ripen. ¥ “Need to remove fruit or food coloring stains on your hands or your countertop? White vinegar will clean it off. It’s good for so many things.” -R.N. in Washington ¥ “Instead of baking soda, I use three or four charcoal briquettes in a bowl to control odor and moisture in my refrigerator. I place the briquettes in a shallow dish, then cover the top of the bowl with a small piece of cheesecloth

¥ When it comes to fruits and vegetables, five a day is nice, but more matters. Try setting aside time after you come home from the grocery store for prepping fruits and vegetables. Prebag snack sizes of carrots, celery, strawberries, grapes, cantaloupe and apples. Pre-cut veggies for meals to make later in the week. Slice tomatoes and onions for sandwiches, and tear and separate lettuce for salads. They all make great, healthy treats, and it makes it easier to get your recommended servings! ¥ Have a stained coffee pot, but don’t want to use a harsh chemical cleanser to scrub that stain off? For gritty cleaning power, try using a tablespoon of milk and a tablespoon of salt. The salt gives you scrubbing power, and the milk’s acids help gently dissolve the stains.

of the large evergreen nutmeg tree, native to the West Indies. This tree grows to a height of about 60 feet (18.3 m), and yields both nutmeg and mace. The seeds are grated to produce nutmeg, while mace comes from the lacy threads that surround the seed. Nutmeg may spice up your desserts, but its medicinal uses are many. Ancient Chinese medicine called for using its oil for digestive ailments, relieving inflammation, and reducing joint pain. Nutmeg is a good source of Vitamin C, many B-complex vitamins, copper, potassium, calcium, iron, and zinc. Some claim it promotes a restful night’s sleep when steamed and inhaled. Nutmeg contains the same essential oil as cloves, eugenol, that can be used for toothache relief. • Sweet aromatic cloves are used in baking and flavoring meats such as ham and lamb, as well as serving as an anesthetic for a toothache. Eugenol oil can also reduce blood sugar in diabetics and help relieve indigestion. Naturopaths claim that rubbing a mixture of oil of cloves and mustard into aching joints and muscles will reduce pain. Some people say that drinking water in which a few cloves have been boiled will help relieve a cough. • Cinnamon, one of the oldest known spices, comes from the bark of a cinnamon tree, bark that must be processed immediately after harvesting, while it is still wet. Cinnamon was a gift fit for a king in ancient times, and in Rome, a pound of the spice was worth ten months’ wages. It’s been shown to help with indigestion and upset stomach. Diabetics will be happy to know that cinnamon seems to contribute to reduced blood glucose levels and increased insulin production. Some studies indicate that it promotes lower cholesterol and relief of arthritis pain. • The Scoville scale was developed by Wilbur Scoville in 1912 to measure the hotness of a food item. A food’s number is based on its concentration of the alkaloid compound capsaicin, which is what gives a strong pungent flavor. The hotness of cayenne pepper measures about 50,000 Scoville Heat Units. (Compare this to the Carolina Reaper pepper which averages 1,569,300 SHU’s!) Cayenne comes from a small shrub about 39 inches (100 cm) tall, and is considered the best source of Vitamin A of all spices, as well as being rich in anti-oxidants. Studies indicate that capsaicin has anti-carcinogenic and anti-diabetic properties. Cayenne has been successful in treating arthritis, sore muscles, and digestive ailments, as well as improving blood circulation. • We usually think of oregano as an herb to flavor our tomato sauces and Italian dishes. That is the Mediterranean species of oregano, which is a member of the mint family. It grows in Greece, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco, and has a strong, robust flavor. However, there is another completely different variety, Mexican oregano, a relative of lemon verbena, which has more of a citrusy licorice taste. The USDA tells us that one tablespoon of fresh oregano has just as much antioxidant properties as an apple. • If you’re cooking Mexican food, coriander, cumin, and cilantro are essential. Coriander actually comes from the seeds of the cilantro plant. While fresh cilantro will offer a bolder flavor, coriander adds more of a subtle taste. • When the dried fruit of the sweet red pepper Capsicum annuum is ground, the result is a red powder we know as paprika. We use it to season stews, soups, and sausages, particularly in Hungarian foods. It’s grown mainly in Spain, South America, California, and, of course, Hungary. • Why doesn’t our list include salt? Because salt is a mineral, not an herb or spice!

FAMOUS CANADIANS: PETER JENNINGS

• Peter Jennings was one of the most trusted and respected news anchors in the history of television news. As the son of a noted Canadian Broadcasting Company journalist, Peter got his start in broadcasting at age 9, hosting his own radio program, “Peter’s People,” on a Toronto station. • Although a gifted broadcaster, Jennings was not a gifted student. He admitted that his failure to pass 10th grade was due to “pure boredom.” In an interview he remarked, “I loved girls, I loved comic books. I was pretty lazy.” He dropped out at age 17, and although he tried to attend Carleton University a few years later, in his words, he “lasted about 10 minutes.” • Jennings was anxious to follow his father into broadcasting, but took a job as a bank teller at the Royal Bank of Canada. He got a break in his early 20s when he landed a job hosting a Canadian music program called “Club Thirteen,” followed by a teen dance show similar to “American Bandstand” called “Saturday Date.” • At age 24, Jennings was given the co-anchor position of a Canadian late-night national news broadcast, ironically, in competition with his father’s network. At 25, he was the first Canadian journalist to arrive in Dallas after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

After two years as anchor, he moved to the States for a position with ABC News. The following year, he was the anchor opposite the time slots of news greats, CBS’s Walter Cronkite and NBC’s David Brinkley. • Jennings took on a new challenge two years later when he shifted to a job as a foreign correspondent. He set up ABC’s news bureau in Beirut, the first TV news bureau in the Middle East, where he remained for 7 years. After similar positions in Rome and London, he came back to the U.S. to co-anchor World News Tonight, where we saw his face for the next 27 years. At one time, 14 million people watched Jennings every night. His awards included 16 Emmys and two George Foster Peabody awards. • Jennings was present at nearly every historic event during his tenure, including not only the building of the Berlin Wall in the 1960s, but also its fall in 1989. He was one of the first journalists to report from Vietnam, and was on hand at the 1972 Munich Olympics when terrorists attacked Israeli athletes. We heard about the space shuttle Challenger disaster and the Gulf War from Jennings. During the September 11th attacks in 2001, Jennings was at his anchor desk for 17 straight hours. After the tragedy, claiming a “deeper sense of connection to the United States,” he began studying for the citizenship test, and in 2003, he obtained dual citizenship, U.S. and Canadian. • In April, 2005, Jennings announced to viewers that

¥ It was novelist Tom Clancy who made the following sage by Samantha Weaver o b s e r v a t i o n : “The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.” ¥ Charlie Chan, the fictional Honolulu detective, was created in 1919 by novelist Earl Derr Biggers. The books featuring Chan became so popular that the character made the leap to radio, movies and television. Over the years, 13 actors have portrayed the detective, but not one of them has been of Chinese ancestry. ¥ Rattlesnakes can live up to 20 years. ¥ When the TV sitcom “The Addams Family” was being cast in the early 1960s, actor John Astin came in to audition for the role of Lurch, the cadaverous butler. He was immediately rejected for the part. As he was leaving the room, though, the producer

spotted him, pulled him aside, and immediately offered him the role of Gomez -- the lead. All he had to do was grow a mustache. ¥ The nation of France was still executing people with the guillotine until 1977. ¥ In 1973, The Who began a major U.S. tour with a show in San Francisco. As the show was starting, though, drummer Keith Moon collapsed. He was revived, but then collapsed once more. At that point, in an unprecedented move, Pete Townsend asked for volunteers from the audience. Scott Halprin, a 19-year-old aspiring drummer, jumped at the chance. He played three numbers with the band, and lead singer Roger Daltry later told Rolling Stone magazine, “That drummer was really good.” ¥ Milk produced by a hippopotamus mother is pink. *** Thought for the Day: “In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it’s the exact opposite.” -- Paul Dirac Answer on page 15

STARTING THIS WEEK: “300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE”: Not as much a sequel as a different perspective on the story told in the first “300,” this take on the ancient battle between the Greeks and the Persians again offers bountiful visual spectacle in focusing largely on the conflict at sea. Sullivan Stapleton (“Strike Back”) plays a Greek general who finds a worthy adversary in the cunning Artemisia (an enjoyable Eva Green), with Rodrigo Santoro back as the equally dangerous Xerxes. Stapleton and Green share a particular love-hate scene that’s one for the ages, literally. Original director Zack Snyder is on board as a writer and producer. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentaries. *** (R: AS, N, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “WINTER’S TALE”: Romance transcends time in this fantasy marking the directing debut of screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, reteamed here with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, who acted out his Oscar-winning script for “A Beautiful Mind.” However, the central roles belong to Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay (“Downton Abbey”) as a couple whose love is threatened by the woman’s illness. As he travels through different eras seeking a cure for her, his sworn enemy (Crowe) stays close on his heels. The adaptation of Mark Helprin’s novel also features William Hurt and screen veteran Eva Marie Saint. DVD extra: “making-of ” documentary. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “MASTERS OF SEX: SEASON ONE”: It’s not all clinical for human-sexuality researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson - played by Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan - in the freshman round of the Showtime drama series. Their controversial work turned the duo into popculture icons, but it also took a toll on their personal lives. Caitlin FitzGerald (“It’s Complicated”) also stars. DVD extras: three “making-of ” documentaries; audio commentary by cast and crew members on the pilot episode; deleted scenes. *** (Not rated: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray) “ENEMY”: Jake Gyllenhaal does double duty in this melodrama, playing both a college professor and an actor who certainly likes the ladies. Their paths are set on a collision course once the educator sees a movie featuring his look-alike, whom he then decides to seek out ... with potentially tragic results. Melanie Laurent (“Beginners”) and Isabella Rossellini also appear for director Denis Villeneuve (“Prisoners”) in the adaptation of Jose Saramago’s novel “The Double.” DVD extra: “making-of ” documentary. *** (R: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “I SPY: THE COMPLETE SERIES”: Bill Cosby is an entertainment icon now, but he was a stand-up comic just making a move into series television - under the guidance of executive producer Sheldon Leonard - when he was partnered with Robert Culp in this classic espionage series. Kelly Robinson (Culp) ostensibly was a tennis player who traveled the world with supposed trainer Alexander Scott (Cosby), but those occupations were falsified covers for their true work as U.S. government operatives. As the premise and opening-credit sequence indicated, the show actually was filmed around the globe. *** (Not rated: AS, V) “NYPD BLUE: SEASON 6”: Detective Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz, who won an Emmy for his work in this round) has two partners over the course of this season of executive producer Steven Bochco’s acclaimed police drama. He’s still working with Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits) as the episodes begin, but fate results in Sipowicz teaming up with the relatively untested Detective Danny Sorenson (Rick Schroder). That’s not the only major change in Sipowicz’s life, either, as the stories unfold. Kim Delaney, James McDaniel, Nicholas Turturro and Gordon Clapp also continue as cast regulars. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)

Safety Bits

The Basics of Backyard Barbecuing - Part 3 Time to Trade in Your Propane Cylinder • Strictly enforced safety regulations are one reason why incidents involving propane tanks are rare. Propane cylinders must be inspected and re-qualified or replaced every 10 years in Canada. A date stamp on the collar of the cylinder indicates when it was last qualified. • Just because a propane cylinder hasn’t reached its 10-year limitation, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be replaced. Check your tank closely. If it is rusty, damaged or you just aren’t sure if it’s reliable, don’t take unnecessary risks. Replace it with a new one and be certain of your safety. When you do get a new propane cylinder , make sure you turn the old one in so that it can be properly purged and recycled or disposed of. • All new propane cylinder must be purged of air and moisture prior to the first filling. • The law requires that only a properly trained and certified attendant may fill a tank. The attendant will not fill an outdated propane cylinder or fill any cylinder beyond 80% of its capacity. Don’t Take Short Cuts When Transporting Propane Cylinders • We’ve all been there. You’ve got everything ready for a big backyard barbecue and, ‘oh no’, the propane cylinder is empty! In a panic you drop everything to rush off and get the cylinder refilled in time. • Don’t rush! Take the extra few minutes to ensure you handle your cylinder properly and transport it safely to minimize risk and avoid potential incidents and injury. Do It Right: • Always thread the special plug into the outlet of the service valve as soon as you disconnect the hose. • Always carry the cylinder in an upright position with the safety valve on top. • Never put a propane cylinder in a closed vehicle. If it is in the trunk, block the trunk lid open. It is preferable to transport it on the floor of the passenger compartment. • Secure the cylinder in the upright position so it can’t tip over while you’re driving. • When it is inside the passenger compartment have all the windows open. • Never leave a cylinder in a parked car with the windows up. Heat builds up quickly and could cause an explosion. • When reconnecting the cylinder make sure it is secured in place on the barbecue. • After the hose is reconnected, check for leaks using the water and soap solution. If there are bubbles tighten the connection. • Never smoke while handling a propane cylinder. Brought To You By:

GARLIC

In keeping with our theme of spices, Tidbits now zeroes in on the culinary and medicinal benefits of garlic. • Garlic, or Allium sativum, is a member of the onion genus, along with shallots, leeks, and chives. A full-grown garlic plant is about 24 inches (60 cm) tall and yields between 8 and 20 bulbs. It’s one of the oldest cultivated food plants, and its use dates back over 7,000 years. Pictures of garlic have been found on ancient Egyptian tombs and the Greek physician Hippocrates promoted its therapeutic benefits for respiratory and digestion problems, low energy, and eliminating parasites. Olympic athletes in ancient Greece were fed garlic, probably to enhance their performance. • The list of the health benefits of garlic goes on and on. Research has shown the cardiovascular benefits of garlic, as well as a reduction in cholesterol levels. It seems to help regulate blood sugar levels and prevent complications of diabetes. It has antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, and was

used as an antiseptic to prevent gangrene during World Wars I and II. In a study conducted by China’s Center for Disease Control, people who ate raw garlic twice a week had a 44% lower risk of developing lung cancer. Some naturopaths advocate its use for the prevention of prostate, breast, stomach, and colon cancers. • Of course, the downside of ingesting large quantities of garlic is halitosis – bad breath! – as well as sweat that has a pungent smell. This is cause by Allyl Methyl Sulfide, a sulfurcontaining gas that is released when you eat garlic. • Helsinki, Finland is home to Kynsilaukka, a restaurant that caters to garlic lovers. Even its name translates to “clove leek.” They serve all things garlic, including beer, ice cream, and cheesecake. In the U.S., San Francisco boasts “The Stinking Rose,” a restaurant where every menu item features garlic. No wonder their marketing slogan is “Follow your nose to the Stinking Rose.” • Garlic isn’t just for seasoning and medicinal benefits. Even the sticky juice found within

the bulb cloves is useful as an adhesive in mending glass and porcelain. • If you don’t have fresh garlic for your recipes, garlic powder can be used, although it does have a different taste. If you do substitute the powder for the fresh, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder is the equivalent of one clove of fresh garlic. • Much of the U.S.’s garlic supply is produced in and around Gilroy, California, which has been dubbed “Garlic Capital of the world.” A single farm in the area produces nearly 25 million pounds (11,340,000 kg) annually. Every July, this community of 50,000 hosts the Gilroy Garlic Festival, a celebration that has raised almost $9 million for assorted local charities since its founding in 1979. • Although Gilroy calls itself the garlic capital, it’s nowhere near the world’s top producer. Over 77% of the world’s garlic is grown in China, about 23 billion pounds (10.4 billion kg) worth. India is a distant second with 4.1%, followed by South Korea at 2%. The U.S. produces just 1.6% of the world’s garlic, with some grown in every state except Alaska.

Say You Saw It In Tidbits Lead Your Household Toward Zero Waste

Harley Johnson t 306 630 2335 f 306 624 0843 3jssprayfoam@gmail.com

“Wow! This is really cool; this used to be garbage at our school cafeteria,” exclaimed two enthusiastic second-graders to 70-yearold Donna Mayotte, as they assisted her in shoveling a bucket load of free compost from a mound piled high at our recent neighborhood spring festival. “Yeah. Pretty cool, huh?” she replied. “This rich soil will nourish my roses all summer long. Thank you.” It is pretty cool, and exciting for our entire community. Composting is a growing trend much like recycling was a generation ago. And like then, the kids and their parents’ enthusiasm keeps the new movement going. Spearheaded primarily by Australian-born mom of two Felicity Britton, and her non-profit Linden Hills Power & Light, households and the community school have been converting biodegradable waste such as food scraps for five years. The city collects the material in green carts on trash day and sends it to a commercial composting facility.

I think of it as “table to farm” when my family collects biodegradable waste instead of shoving it down the sink garbage disposal or in the trash can. Summer’s corn cobs, watermelon rinds, coffee grounds, tea bags, eggshells and pizza boxes can be converted into nutrient-rich dirt to enrich our vegetable plots, rose gardens, lawns and indoor plants. If you want to teach your kids firsthand how to divert the waste from landfills and create your own rich soil into nutrition for plants, check out ideas for constructing or purchasing a simple compost container where you live. Find instructions at Felicity’s site, lhpowerandlight.org, and check with your county or state recycling department. And while you are at it, start a discussion about additional ways your family can move toward zero waste. It’s easy to be baffled by the zero in “zero” waste, but by learning and making small changes, your efforts in reducing what ends up in your garbage will count by considering these five R’s: REFUSE what you do not need, such as junk mail. REDUCE what you do need. De-clutter your home and put on a garage sale or donate to a thrift shop. Reduce shopping trips, and use a shopping list to avoid impulse buying. REUSE what you can. Use refillable water bottles and your own tote bags when shopping. RECYCLE what you cannot refuse, reduce or reuse. Look for recycling containers and centers in your area, leave grass clipping on the lawn as fertilizer and turn recyclables such as jars, cardboard tubes and cartons into craft projects with your kids. ROT (compost) the rest. Find a compost system that works for you. *** Donna Erickson’s award-winning series “Donna’s Day” is airing on public television nationwide.

Those “secret” 11 herbs and spices that go into making Kentucky Fried Chicken really are a secret.
