Thursday, August 18, 2011 0000Coun00_all, MN Safe home canned vegetables By Deb Botzek-Linn, U of M Extension Are you planning to can green beans, carrots or beets? If so, know that safe home-canned vegetables require processing in a pressure canner. Low-acid vegetables and meats contain too little acidity to prevent the growth of Clostridium botuli- num bacteria. Botulism is a deadly form of food poisoning. It is most commonly found in improperly processed home-canned vegeta- bles, such as green beans, carrots, beets, and mushrooms, as well as other low-acid foods canned at home, including soups, meats, fish and poultry. Because these bacte- ria grow only in the absence of air, they are harmless on fresh foods. The spores of Clostridium bot- ulinum can only be destroyed by canning the food at a temperature of 240 F or above for a specific Sports Leisure ' ]qlH] ..... ' Nil H I1'11 IIH ]11111 IIII period of time. Since this temper- ature is above the boiling point of water, it can only be reached in a pressure canner. If canned food isn't processed properly, spores of the bacteria aren't killed. Acid foods, such as fruits, pick- led products, sauerkraut, jams and jellies contain enough acidity to block the growth of botulism bac- teria and can safely be processed in a water bath canner. For pressure canning direc- tions and recommended processing times visit the University of Min- nesota Extension website at www. extension.umn.edu, and search food preservation. It is critical to use up- to-date research-tested methods when home canning. Freezing, pickling, or dry- ing are safe and tasty alternative methods of preserving low-acid vegetables if you do not have a pressure canner.

Legion Div II By Lexi Bulau VIROQUA-No one thought that EVW could top their two- time Class A State Championship, or even the Legion Tier II State Championship, but that's just what they did. The Legion team traveled to Viroqua, Wis., to com- pete in the American Legion Divi- sion II Central Plains National Regional Tournament, and they. came in swinging, received excel- lent pitching from four different pitchers and were able to go unde- feated, and win the whole thing. They faced their first oppo- nent, Richland Center (Wis.) and were able to get started right away with runs scored in every inning besides the second, including six runs in the third. They went on to win the game 14-2. Kevin Kramer was the winning pitcher. In the second.game, Post 381 faced the home team, Viroqua, Wis. This proved to be the tough- est competition for the boys, but they still managed to pull out another victory. They won 3-2 after scoring one run in the first, and another two in the second. They had to rely on tough defense and strong pitching from their ace Matt Geislinger. The next day, the boys played two separate games. In their first game of the day they face Pah- rump Valley from Nevada. They were able to score four runs in the first and never looked back. They scored another run in the sec- ond and four more in the fourth. They had strong hitting again with seven getting at least a hit includ- ing Matt Geislingers two run home run. Hayden Willner was the win- ning pitcher. In the night cap EVW faced Ripon, Wis., and 10-run ruled them. Their big inning came in the third when they scored five runs. Kevin Kramer was 3-for-4 in the ame with three RBIs and a run. Ripon's only hit of the game came in the fourth with a two-run home run. Iohn Bautch was the winning pitcher and pitches a near perfect game. In the championship EVW faced Pahrump Valley again with the same results. They got a huge second inning and scored seven runs. They added one in the third and two in the fifth to fin- ish the game in five innings. EVW received hits from eight differ- ent batters. They won 10-0 and the winning pitcher was Kevin Kramer. It seemed as the tournament went on, the team got sharper and sharper. They seemed not to grow tired, and instead wanted to keep playing. Unfortunately, Division II Page 12 does not have a national tourna- ment, so the boys could not move on. Many of the players can come back for another season next year besides Dan Sargent and Matt Geislinger who will be too old to play. In the tournament Matt Gels- linger was named Central Plains National Regional Most Valuable Player. Kevin Kramer and Dan Sar- gent, along with Geislinger, were also named to the all-tournament team. The team also received the sportsmanship award. Sacred Heart wins Region 11C final Sacred Heart walked away with the Region 11C amateur baseball title, defeating rival Raymond, 5-3.
