Goodness Grows News
Austintown Farmers Market Winter Market!
We had an amazing first weekend in December! Goodness Grows participated in the Youngstown Flea at the DeYor and the Canfield High School Craft Show. If you missed those two events, you missed some amazing people and products. There was so much to see everywhere you looked. The organizers of both deserve a round of applause for pulling off fun, festive, and (as far as we saw) problem-free events. Thanks for including us. We can't wait for next year!
Birdhouses a Success
Want to re-decorate your birdhouse?
Here is the recipe we followed:
1/2 cup water
1 pkg. unflavored gelatin (1/4 oz.)
3 Tbsp. corn syrup
3/4 cup flour
Heat up the water and dissolve the gelatin in it. Mix in the corn syrup and flour. Whole wheat flour makes a light brown glue, white flour becomes a white glue. (Whole wheat flour does provide some extra nutrition for the birds, but either type is perfectly fine. We had white flour, so that is what we used originally.) This glue needs to be used quickly, as it begins to set within a half hour. You are now ready to spread it on your birdhouse, add nuts and seeds, and provide a fine dining experience for your winged visitors.

The Joy of Jungle Jam
Jungle Jam - not just for crackers anymore!
Do you have a creative use for Jungle Jam? We would love to hear about it! Last month, we listed some ways that we know our customers enjoy our flavorful pepper treat. We have recently learned of a few deliciously new ideas:
- on crostini with goat cheese
- on a turkey sandwich, to give leftovers a new identity
- by the spoonful!
Of course, it is also a fantastic gift to give or receive! Have you found a way we haven't listed? Drop us a line and let us know your favorite way to use Jungle Jam!
