Extension offers program on mixes

Special to The Hays Daily News

Learn to stretch your food dollar by making your own mixes at the Ellis County Extension program "Money-Saving Mixes" at noon Jan. 21 at the Extension office meeting room, 601 Main, Hays.

The free program will explore the advantages and disadvantages of making your own mixes, considerations for labeling and storing prepared mixes and pointers for maintaining mix freshness and quality. Work together to prepare a simple money-saving mix, and calculate the cost savings compared to buying a similar product. Take home mix recipes, instructions and a sample homemade mix to try.

Bring a lunch if desired. Beverages will be provided.

RSVP to Ellis County Extension Office by Jan. 18 at (785) 628-9430 or el@listserv.ksu.edu. A minimum attendance is necessary to have the program, which will be presented by Linda Beech, Ellis County Extension agent.
