Why Use Tested Recipes?

Some of our favorite childhood memories may be of home-preserved foods: delicious dill pickles, spicy salsa, and sweet jams and jellies.  And many of us enjoy sharing these favorite items with family and friends. But how do we know that these family favorites are safe and of good quality to share?


In My Backyard: Honeyberries

Have you heard about honeyberry? Lonicera coerulea var. edulis, also known as haskap or blue honeysuckle, has been in cultivation for several hundred years in Japan and in Eastern Europe since the 1950’s. A potential alternative to acid-loving blueberries, it was introduced in North America in 2000 for a breeding program in Corvallis, Oregon. Now breeding projects are being done at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada.
