holiday help line

And just a reminder, since the Register-Guard Thanksgiving food section failed to note that we’ve got a terrific local resource and don’t need to rely on the Butterball corporate hotline…

and the local radio DJs reported on people calling 411 for turkey help…


The OSU Extension-Lane County Master Food Preservers are ready and waiting to answer your Thanksgiving food questions.  Call in with your turkey, squash, stuffing, and cranberry queries the week before Thanksgiving. 541-682-4246, now until T-Day, M-Th, 9-4:00.  A certified volunteer will provide all the information you need.

Also, if you’re near the Fairgrounds this week, stop by the Extension Service building at 950 W. 13th, Eugene.  Great, inexpensive holiday food gifts and stuff to bring to Thanksgiving parties.  We have some plum juice from the King Estate plums available for purchase at the remarkable price of $2 a quart, mentioned in my previous post.  We also have jams, sauces, relishes and chutneys left over from the tasting buffet fundraiser: $4 a half-pint and $10 for three.  Some pie fillings are also available, if you’d like to take a homemade pie to your feast.  Or just stock up on condiments for your leftovers.  I’m particularly excited about fixing myself a turkey sandwich on Friday afternoon, slathering the bread with cranberry chutney or corn relish, mmmm..
