According to Mark Ridley, Ridley’s Family Markets, they are working with several interested retailers that want to locate in Kuna.
However, Mark did say that he doesn’t feel he should be the one announcing who, what and when they would arrive.
Stating that he would prefer leaving it up to the businesses to announce themselves when they were ready. Mark on the other hand did state that there would be a couple of things under construction and opening by spring. Adding that we should expect to see some activity at Ridley’s in Kuna soon.
Then again Mark neither confirmed nor denied the rumors about the Movie Theater or Dutch Brothers, one wonders. Hoot Hoot Mark we can’t wait.
Canning is a method of preserving food in which the food contents are processed and sealed in an airtight container.
A lot of Canning going on this time of year and is very popular around here and well any place people have gardens. It made me think about how long canning has been around. So give me a moment. . .
Well according to the Wikipedia ~ in 1795 the French military offered a cash prize of 12,000 francs (in today’s market that’s about 13,300.00, I imagine it was a considerably smaller amount in 1795), for a new method to preserve food. Nicolas Appert suggested canning, and the process was first proven successful in 1806 and you can literally say the rest is history.
A satisfying project that can be enjoyed throughout the year. So people go pasteurize, boil, refrigerat, freeze, dry, vacuum, grab your jars, pressure canner, pots, lids, Sure Jell, sugar, vinegars, lemon juice, spices, fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood, and dairy. Cuz I feel some canning coming on. And who doesn’t like the pop of the lid.
There is one thing I would like to say about canning meat; okay I’m not talking about the tuna, chicken, salmon, and other assorted beef, pork, and chicken products. However while perusing one of my mother’s old caning books, published in 1909, I discovered one kind of meat that made me laugh. That’s right, stand back Duck Dynasty, you are not the only ones to know about squirrel. I’m sorry, I’m only eating squirrel if the apocalypse comes and I no longer live in Ada County. Happy canning.
