i have some left over crimini mushrooms that have totally dried up in the refrigerator. are they still safe to use in cooked meats?
Are there any organizations, government or otherwise, that will come to your property and do an inspection of your trees to identify diseased ones or to look for the latest dreaded insects like the emerald ash borer? Many of my trees do not look healthy but I don’t know anything about trees and I can’t afford to pay someone to come out and inspect them. It’s a long shot, I’m sure, but I thought I’d ask.

I have canned 9 quarts of tomato juice. All lids have sealed but there was a lot of seepage during hot water bath and all jars have separated differently. Are they ok or should I reboil liquid and process again?
Our massive Norway spruce is located on a rise about 100' from what used to be Buckeye Lake. This spring, with every strong wind/storm, it is shedding hundreds of branch tips, most with new growth about 2-3", also about 1 1/2" old growth. Some seem based on a normal split area, others show the branch torn off. Normally, the water table is about 30", but with dropping the lake 4', our portion of the inlet that is in line with this tree is now muck, with no surface water. It normally would be around 3' deep. Suggestions? We love this old tree (it was fully grown when we moved in 45 years ago).

Hi I know that most salsa recipes are processed with a hot bath bath but the recipes have been proven to be safe due to the ratio of tomates to other ingredents. My recipe is not tested so in the prosess I boil it for 2 hrs to get the desired thickness and I process it in a pressure cooker at 10 psi in a weighted pressure cooker for 25 min. It has come out perfect. Is this a long enough time in the pressure cooker. Thanks, Darren Whitehouse
