Raising Nebraska is debuting the latest addition to its website in time for the holiday season – recipes. Experience Coordinator Sarah Polak has been collecting the recipes presented at Raising Nebraska during the 2018 and 2019 State Fair for posting on-line. "On-line seemed the best venue for us to share this information. We have so many fairgoers who request the recipes that we frequently run out of paper copies. We also have fairgoers that are unable to attend a particular demonstration, want to share the recipe with a friend, or are interested in new ways to prepare Nebraska products." There are recipes on line for every taste and season of the year. The most requested recipes are for the Churros with Chocolate Sauce and the Sorghum Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Nebraska Extension is pleased to have moisture meters available for homeowners to borrow from local Extension offices as they monitor structures for moisture levels prior to rebuilding. The moisture level of structures cannot be determined by appearance or time spent drying. A calibrated moisture meter is recommended to measure the moisture content of flooded materials.
