8I--Mav 19.1974 Sunday Gazette-Mail Chdrl«ifixi, West Virginia LaLeche League Nursing Mothers Celebrate 5th Anniversary '. The La Leche League is celebrating its fifth year in West Virginia. The league is a non-profit international group devoted to helping mothers who want to breastfeed their babies. - The West Virginia effort began in 1969 when Mrs. Frank Tolliver of Walter Road was certified as a leader. She had led a group of nursing mothers in Charleston for the year before her certification. She and her husband Frank, who is with the West Virginia Department of Rehabilitation, are parents of three daughters. Mrs. Tolliver is a registered nurse who works part- time in the family planning clinic at Charleston Memorial. She is working on a degree in sociology at West Virginir. State College. * * * NEXT APPROVED was Mrs. E. Neale Biackwood of 26th Street. SE. Her husband is an instructor at Morris Harvey and they have two sons. She is a substitute teacher in K a n a w h a C o u n t y schools. Mrs. John Price of Hurricane was the third certified leader. She became the mother of twins on the second anniversary of her marriage. She I SHE'S ONE OF '"MOTHER'S IN THE KITCHEN" Group Leader Mrs. John Price, 3-Month-Old Greg and Twins Doug and David, 4 Hints on Freezing, Canning ; If you plan to have a vegetable garden this summer and · Tstore part of your harvest, or -to buy vegetables and fruit in ·3ulk while prices are low, it ' -would be wise to read up on "proper freezing and canning ·procedures. Two good, low-cost references are Home Freezing of Fruits and Vegetables (50f), and Home Canning of Fruits and Vegetables (35t). Developed by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, they are available from Consumer Information, Pueblo, Colo. 81009. Home Freezing of Fruits and Vegetables suggests the following: No Dull Moments Making the fifth generation in her family, tiny Jennifer Renee Syphers received all the tender loving care a baby can use during her recent visit with relatives here. She is nestled in the arms of her great-great- grandmother, Mrs. Gertrude Young of Elkview. Also on hand for babysitting duties were (standing, from left) the great-grandmother, Mrs. Sylvia Stricklen; the grandmother, Mrs. Wilda Rollins of Canton, Ohio; and (seated, right) the mother, Mrs. Becky Syphers, also of Canton. Hurricane ORG to Install »· Heat vegetables in boiling water ("blanch") before p a c k i n g for the freezer. Blanching slows or stops the enzymes which may discolor or toughen the vegetables. Blanching time varies with the vegetable. Cool vegetables promptly in cold water and drain thoroughly. · Use packaging materials that are moisture and vapor proof. For example: glass, metal, and rigid plastic containers; or bags, wrapping materials and waxed cartons made especially for freezing. Do not use ordinary waxed paper, or paper cartons from cheese, ice cream, and milk. »· Put no more food into a freezer than will freeze within 24 hours. Usually this will be about two or three pounds of food to each cubic foot of freezer capacity. » Store food at 0° F or below. At higher temperatures, foods lose quality much faster. *· Make a list of the foods you have frozen and post it near the freezer. Keep it up- to-date. »· Home Canning of Fruits and Vegetables suggests that you use a steam-pressure canner for all common vegetables except tomatoes. Also you should: »· Check the pressure gage on your steam-pressure canner according to manufacturer's directions. An accurate gage is a must for safe canning. If your gage is off five pounds or, more, you'd better get a new gage. · Follow processing instructions carefully. When processing time is up, remove canner from heat immediately. · The day after canning, test the seal. On a jar that has a flat metal lid, press center of l i d ; the jar is properly sealed if the -lid is down and will not move. Or tap the center of the lid with a spoon. A clear, ringing sound means a good seal. However, a dull note does not always mean a poor seal; store jars without leaks and check for spoilage before use. Never use canned food that shows any sign of spoilage. Look closely at each container before opening it. Bulging can ends, jar lids, or rims, or a leak may mean the seal has broken and the f o o d has spoiled. When you open a container look for other signs -spurting liquid, an off odor, or mold. Home Freezing of Fruits and Vegetables and Home Canning of Fruits and Vegetables also cover proper procedures for preserving fruits with and without sugar. These booklets are examples of the more than 200 publications listed in the Consumer Information Index. Published by the Consumer Information Center of the General Services Administration, the Index is available free from Consumer Information, Pueblo, Colo. 81009. is an adviser to the Childbirth Education Assn. group in Huntington and a founding mother of "Mothers of Breastfed Babies." She has held league meetings in the Hurricane- Teays Valley-Cross Lanes area. Conducting meetings in the St. Albans-South Charleston area is Mrs. Don Burnside of South Charleston. Her husband is with Union Carbide Corp. and they have four children. She is a substitute teacher. * * * MOVING TO West Virginia last August was Mrs. J. Truman Dalton of Cross Lanes. Her husband teaches at West Virginia State College. They have a son and daughter and are expecting in July. Approved last month as a leader is Mrs. James Magura of Viewmont Drive. Her husband is a supervisor with American Telephone and Telegraph and they have two sons and a daughter. From its first session five years ago the league has grown in West Virginia to 16 leaders and 6 leader applicants. It is represented in Wheeling, Elkins, Fairmont, Morgantown, Ronceverte, Union, Huntington, Hurricane, St. Albans, Cross Lanes, Martinsburg, Greenville and Wellsburg. The leaders expressed why they .became involved with the La Leche League. "BECAUSE* I HAD attempted to breastfeed and found I needed more information, not having a mother close by. I realized that women need the support of other mothers in nursing a baby," said Nancy Tolliver. "Breastfeeding is a wonderful beginning for the infant and his mother; it's easy and natural. Breastfeeding is love," said Joyce Burnside. "I feel that in this day of ·many couples limiting the number of children they have, LLL helps to make these limited experiences the fullest possible. Another on-going purpose is the help given to improving the eating patterns in many homes," Clarice Dalton said. In connection with this ongoing interest in nutrition past the weaning period, the league has published a cookbook of recipes from its members. It's titled, "Mother's in the Kitchen." * * * IN A FOREWORD, the editors state: "Since our purpose is to encourage you to use foods in as close to their natural state as possible, and to eat a variety of these foods, we have taken advantage of the experiences of resourceful league mothers who have developed their own shortcuts and homemade mixes, maintaining at the same time a good level of nutrition. Typical of the recipes is this for do-it-yourself granola: Granola 4 cups quick-cooking ota- «iical 3 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup white flour 1 cut wheat germ 1 cup soy flour (if available) 1 cup fine coconut (if desired) 1 cup chopped nuts 1 tablespoon salt 1 cup oil 1 cup honey IVt cup water "Mix the dry ingredients. Then add oil, honey and water and mix well. (I like to use my hands.) The mixture should be nice and crumbly, and more water can be added to make bigger crumbs. "Put in two large flat pans and bake in a slow over (250 to 300 degrees), turning every 20 minutes to keep from becoming too brown around the edges, for about IVfe hours, or until crisp and golden brown. Cool and store in airtight container; it will last for several breakfasts. It is'especially nice to take camping, tto. "My husband and I like it dry, and the girls like to put milk on it, and it is good either way. It is also |,ood with raisins, bananas or other fruit on it (or under it). I just omit the ingredients I dortt have on hand and substitute more of something else, so it is very versatile." The recipe was submitted by Mrs. Ray Foster of Fort Jameson, Zambia, Af- nca. 3rd Annual ANTIQUE SHOW SALE MAY 17-18-19 Friday Saturday--12 Noon to 10pm Sunday-1 p.m. to 6 p.m. WEST VIRGINIA NATIONAL GUARD ARMORY 1701 Coomkin Drive (Airport Road) Chas., W.
