Gift Ideas

Looking for a gift idea for someone who enjoys food preservation, or would like to learn more? The Coos County Extension Service has a variety of food preservation books and materials available for purchase at our Extension Office in Myrtle Point. You might also consider purchasing a gift certificate for $10 off a Master Food Preserver workshop.

We also carry kits for making queso fresco cheese (recipe, cheesecloth, thermometer & rennet - $10), quality cheesecloth ($5) and Clear Jel - a modified cornstarch that is the only thickener approved by the USDA for thickening home canned products such as pie filling. Clear Jel doesn't break down in heat so it retains it's jelling properties in processing.

If you would like to know more about any of these products, contact the Extension Service at 541-572-5263, ext. 299. Or stop by the office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., 631 Alder Street in Myrtle Point.
