Pioneers had baking powder


Edited by MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
What does the history of
baking powder have to do with
Florida history? It's the Christ-
mas season: cookie time! What
was baking like during the pio-
neer days in Florida?During the
Depression, in the 1930s the
federal government sponsored
work to create jobs. The Feder-
al Writer's Project was one of
those works. Within the Federal
Writer's Project is an account of
very early life in south Florida
taken by Bertha A. Comstock
on Dec. 16, 1938 from Mary
Brennan Burrell who, together
with her husband John, settled
around 1887 in what was to
become Immokalee. The
account here was taken from


the original story in the Federal
Writer's Project.'
The story begins: Mary's
family came to South Carolina
from England and then to Madi-
son County in North Florida
before the Civil War. She was 78
years old when her story was
written in 1938, so she would
have been born in 1850. Her story
itself is now 67 years old.
Mary's husband John bought
land 24 miles from Fort Myers, on
the edge of the Big Cypress, built
a house and moved the family
there. It was then, in 1887 that
Mary first had baking-powder.
Until then, all "risin" breads were
made with sour milk, preferably
heavy buttermilk and soda.
Heavy buttermilk is that which
had stood after being churned
until it was thick. This was consid-
ered the best for baking. Milk that


was merely "sour" did not give as
good results. Clabbered milk
could be used, but the best cooks
always preferred heavy butter-
milk. But the new baking powder
created a furor for "new baking"
among the pioneer women of the
deep South.
This new product came in a
package done up in stout outer
wrapping; inside were packs of
two kinds of powder, one three
times as large as the other. One
was soda, the other cream of tar-
tar. The directions were to use
one teaspoonful of cream of tar-
tar with two teaspoonfuls of soda.
They had to be mixed well and
were put into the batter after
everything else was mixed; the
oven must be ready and the pan
greased to receive the batter.

History

Continued From Page 1
Then the new baking powder was
stirred in quickly and thoroughly,
the batter turned into the pan and
put in the oven.
It took a long time to get used to
baking powder, and most "crack-
er" women liked the old way of
soda and heavy buttermilk the best.
Now, a large percentage of "Crack-
ers" use ready-to-mix flour, rather
than worry with a recipe that calls
for yeast or baking powder.
"Most old timers from Georgia
and the backwoods bought the
ready-to-mix flour for both biscuit
and pancakes," Mary said.
"Southern recipes are all found-
ed on old style breads, always
served hot, and self-rising baking
seem to be lighter than where you
have to mix your baking powder
yourself. As most buttermilk nowa-
days (the 1930s) is not churned, but
made with tablets bought at the
drugstore,"-she wrote.
We just use self-rising and ready-
mix as a sure means to have good
bakings" said another Southern
woman.
Remember, this was all in a fire-
place or on a wood-burning stove
... with no thermostat.

the roofs of their homes were tom off by the heavy winds. The council
also received funds from an anonymous donor and Seminole Elemen-
tary School donated a check that they received from children in Min-

Citrus comes to aid of farm workers


Lakeland Florida citrus
growers have teamed up with
packers and retailers nationwide to
raise funds for more than 50,000 of
the state's farm workers affected
during the recent hurricane sea-
son:
Through the collaborative
effort, donations of more than
$204,000, collected through a spe--
cial retail promotion, were present-
ed Dec. 5 by a group of industry
leaders to those hardest hit by hur-
ricanes Charley, Frances, Jeanne
and Wilma.
Catholic Charities of Arcadia
received $150,000 to assist in pro-
viding singles housing and Red-
lands Migrant Christian Association
(RCMA) received $40,000 for their.
charter school in Immokalee.
'Local charities throughout the cit-


rus growing areas of the state will
receive the balance.
Catholic Charities is building
farm worker housing at its Casa
San Juan Bosco project in DeSoto
County. Casa San Juan Bosco, will
include healthcare and daycare
services, as well as transportation
for access to nearby retail shops.
"This donation is an important
step towards addressing the hous-
ing needs of farm workers in
Southwest Florida," said Peter
Routsis-Arroyo, president of
Catholic Charities Housing.
For more than 40 years, RCMA
has provided family and education-
al services to migrant farm workers
and their families. RCMA operates
more than 70 centers around Flori-
da, including the new charter
school in Immokalee.


"The charter school is dedicat-
ed to serving the children of this
farming community, and this dona-
tion will help us expand that mis-
sion," said Barbara Mainster,
RCMA executive director.
Twenty-five cents from each
carton of specially marked Florida
oranges sold at participating retail-
ers was donated to the Hurricane
Farm Workers Relief Fund.
"We are grateful to the Florida
citrus growers and all.the local-
retailers who participated in this
worthy program to provide much-
needed aid to our state's farm
workers," said
Mike Stuart, president of the
Florida Fruit &Vegetable Associa-
tion (FFVA). FFVA's foundation, the
Florida Fruit & Vegetable Research
& Education Foundation, is admin-


istering the distribution of relief
funds.
Florida's farm workers were
among the thousands of Floridians
whose homes and livelihoods
were severely disrupted by the hur-
ricanes. Many workers do not qual-
ify for previously established relief
and as a result could be forced to
relocate. Dollars raised through
this promotion will provide farm
workers with financial housing
assistance as well as childcare and
educational aid.
The promotion was initiated by
the Florida's fresh citrus industry
(growers and packers) in coopera-
tion with the Florida Department of
Citrus, an executive agency of Flori-
da government charged with mar-
keting, research and regulation of
the Florida citrus industry.


When landscaping, create a mosaic


By Ed Ayen, Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods
This is the third in a series of arti-
cles written on the new area pro-
gram called Florida Yards & Neigh-
borhoods. The program is being
implemented through your local
county extension service in High-
lands, Okeechobee and Glades
County and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319 fund-
ing from the U. S..EPA through the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection.
Plant selection can be the fun
part of landscaping a "Florida
Friendly Yard". If you are from the
North Country, like I am, you prob-
ably marvel at the diversity of
plants that grow in this area. You
may want to try everything or are

dismayed at the number and find it
hard to choose. Remember, the
plants you select determine the
level of maintenance required and
also how long your landscape will
last.
Plants already on your property,
particularly low rpaintenance
native plants, should be retained.
Saving existing plants reduces cost
and leaves valuable wildlife habitat
undisturbed.
Select from a list that. includes
suitable native plants as once they
are established most require little, if
any, supplemental water, fertilizer
or pesticides. If you won't be irri-
gating your yard select drought tol-
erant plants that are suited to your
soil. Consider flowering and fruit-
ing plants that bring birds and but-
terflies into your yard.


Please do not plant noxious or
invasive species. Florida prohibits
planting of Brazilian Pepper, Aus-
tralian Pine, Melaleuca, Carrot-
wood, Chinese Tallow and many
others.
Strive to create a mosaic of
trees, shrubs, groundcovers, native
grasses and wildflowers. Large
plantings of the same species are
prone to disease and insect infesta-
tion.
Turf areas should be functional
and designed for easy mainte-
nance. Bahiagrass tends to be
more carefree than St. Augustine.
Groundcovers are especially
useful in shady or sloped areas
where turf may not thrive or is diffi-
cult to maintain.
Don't be fooled by the Quick-fix
appeal of fast growing plants. They


require more pruning, resulting in
more clippings and yard waste.
Slower growing plants may take
longer, but they will last longer and
create less work.
Choose plants hardy in this
region. We do have occasional
frost throughout the area and non-
hardy plants may not survive. Also,
plants tuned to cooler climates
may not survive our hot, humid
summers.
Ed Ayern is available to address
interested groups such as home-
owners associations, voluntary
organizations and clubs. For fur-
ther information he can be
reached by calling the Highlands
County Extension Service office.

Tom Gallagher issues fire safety tips


TALLAHASSEE As Floridi-
ans crank up their heaters and
fireplaces and set out the holiday
candles and lights, State Fire Mar-
shal Tom Gallagher is urging resi-
dents to keep safety in mind.
"The number of home fires
usually doubles in December,
but most can be prevented," Gal-
lagher said. "The most important
safety precautions are having
working smoke alarms and a fire
escape plan."
. Other seasonal fire safety tips,
including a new Home and Holi-
day Fire Safety CD, are available
at www.fldfs.com. Throughout
December, fire prevention spe-
cialists with the State Fire Mar-


shal's Office will disseminate the
CD at fairs and various educa-
tional programs throughout the
state. The most important tips
Gallagher is urging Floridians to
follow are:
Make sure you have smoke
detectors and make sure they
work.
Use a flashlight instead of
candles if electrical power is
knocked out.
Plug electric space heaters
directly into a wall outlet. Do not
use them with an extension
cord.
Keep space heaters and
other heat sources at least 3 feet
away" from furniture, walls and


drapes.
Before using a fireplace,
make sure the chimney flue is
open so carbon monoxide gas
can escape.
If your natural gas is shut off
or the pilot light needs to be re-lit,
contact your local gas company.
Do not attempt to turn it on your-
self.
Water live trees daily.
Don't let tree lights touch
needles or curtains.
Turn out lights and snuff
candles before going to bed or
leaving the house.
Keep candles out of reach
of children and pets and use stur-
dy candleholders.


Have an operable fire extin-
guisher readily available.
In October, Gallagher sent
illustrated growth charts with
age-appropriate fire safety tips to
third-graders throughout Florida
to encourage families to talk
about fire safety. The State Fire
Marshal's Office and the Depart-
ment of Financial Services also
have worked with the Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs to produce
and distribute a fire safety CD for
senior citizens.
"Awareness is critical when it.
comes to keeping your family
and your home safe," Gallagher
said. "These tips can help save
lives."

Thisyear, hundreds of kids on

neglected or abandoned. If you
have as little as two hours per
week, then you can help. Guardian
Ad Litem volunteers are needed to
speak up for these children. Train-
ing for new volunteers will be held

needed in St. Lucie, Indian River,
Martin and Okeechobee counties.
Call the Guardian Ad Litem pro-

mation and an application. Just
two hours of your time each week

of these children.

Foster parents
desperately needed
Okeechobee is in desperate
need of people willing to provide
foster children a normal family
life with nutritious meals, good
daily care and a stimulating envi-
ronment. Foster parents may be
married, divorced or single. Their
most important characteristic is
that they are caring individuals
who understand the problems
and needs of foster children.
Please contact Karissa Richards at
1-(800) 403-9311.

of questionable value, such

distance toll costs. We will do
our best to alert our reader of
these charges in the ads, but
occasionally we may not be
aware of the charges. There-
