Kansas County Living is gearing up to giveaway Kansas homegrown and homemade goodies.
To conclude our yearlong celebration of Kansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc.’s 80th anniversary, we want to share your holiday and/or winter photos in the pages of our December issue. The deadline to send us your favorite pics is 5 p.m. on Nov. 10.
You can either scroll through your archived photos already saved in your phone or take a few new photos and submit them — there is no date requirement for when the photos were taken. The photos must be high resolution, so when sending from a phone select “actual size” or “original.” Include your name, name of your electric co-op and where the photos were taken — especially important for scenic photographs so we can showcase the beauty of our state.
For photos we publish in the December issue, the photographer will receive a From the Land of Kansas Konza or Bluestem gift box, each containing products from Kansas farmers, ranchers or agribusinesses.
Kansas Country Living staff enjoyed flipping through issues of the magazine dating back to the 1950s to find a few recipe throwbacks to share this month and next. It seems my formative years were considered the “age of gelatin” when cooks encased a variety of edibles in transparent and wobbly shapes. In case you want to add it to your Thanksgiving table this year, the recipe for “Jellied Turkey Mousse” is reprinted on Page 27 from the November 1963 issue of Kansas Electric Farmer, the precursor to Kansas Country Living. (Let me know how it turns out.)
