Curious Reader

As a boy growing up on a farm in Minnesota in the 1930s, we got the magazine Capper’s Farmer regularly. There was also a roadside sign that advertised Farmer’s Insurance. Is there any connection between CAPPER'S of today and the Capper’s Farmer magazine of long ago?

The only connection is that Arthur Capper was the owner and publisher of both magazines. The magazines were two different magazines. – Editors


Chokecherry Recipe

In the November/December 2009 issue, you printed an article on chokecherries ("Pucker Up"). At the end of the article, it says author Jerry Schleicher "hopes a jar of chokecherry jelly appears on his kitchen counter one of these days." However, you did not print a recipe for chokecherry jelly. We haven’t been able to find such a recipe for many years.
