Keep Apple Slices From Browning

Cooks know lemon juice works well to keep apple slices from browning but did you know honey also does the job? Stir two tablespoons of natural, raw honey into one cup of water and soak your apple slices for 30 seconds. A compound in honey helps slow the oxidization process responsible for browning.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
