Thanks to Janice TX for catching the error in the Cinnamon Pickle recipe that appeared in the 6/21 newsletter. That is way too much water. It should be 2 1/2 quarts of water or 10 cups. These are also known as Red Hot Cinnamon Pickles and Christmas Pickles. Here is a corrected copy of the recipe.

To the person who has too many Instant Potatoes. Hopefully he saved the receipt and you can return at least 9 of them. If all else fails donate them to your local food pantry before they expire. Someone can always use them.

I always like to keep a well stocked pantry, and frequently I find myself buying to much of one thing especially if its on sale. For example they will have a sale on Cake Mixes 4 for $5.00. I try and go thru my stock at least once a month and if I think I have things that I know I can't use before the expiration date I donate them to my local shelter. I do use things past there expiration date, however the food pantry won't take them if they are past the expiration day.
