Thicken Soups With Instant Potatoes

To thicken soups, stir in instant potato flakes. Use no more than a teaspoon at a time until it reaches the desired consistency (starch thickens quickly!). Perfect for those who can’t tolerate dairy and cream-based soups.

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.
