After the service cake and ice cream were served in the church social hall. Laura brought-- ,rompage, Nicole Elzenga gives kidney to Amy Ankrum The earliest date open for the transplant was June 15. Many people might con- sider summer an ideal time to have surgery, but Amy and Nicole were co-workers at the museum, and summer is the peak season. July is busy with visitors in town for the pageant, and this sum- mer marks the 30th anniver- sary of the museum. Both women appreciate the strong support they received from the museum board that told them to go ahead with the June 15 date. Diane Halstenson, Walnut Grove, had similar surgeD' over four years ago, so she offered just the sup- port Amy needed before and after surgery. She stayed with Amy in Rochester for the week after Amy's dis- charge from the hospital and answered many of Amy's questions. Nicole's support came from Leonard McLaughlin. One day they were at Studio 10 in Walnut Grove at the same time. Nicole was talk- ing about the testing she was to undergo before donating a kidney. Leonard could iden- tify vth her experience because he had donated one of his kidneys thirty years ago. He had the understand- ing and provided the encour- agement Nicole needed at that time. Jobs at the Wilder Museum may have put the two women in the same oft]ce, but they agree that God orchestrated their life circumstances to bring them together at just the right time. Amy and Nicole are both back working at the museum, but Amy isn't working full time yet. Insurance covered the surgery, but there are many out-of-pocket expenses that aren't covered. Kidney reflux, Amy's condition, can be hereditary, so daughters Steffanie, 8, and Miranda, 4, underwent testing that was not covered by insurance. Amy's husband Ford has incurred medical expenses this year as well, so the fam- ily faces medical bills from several hospitals. Family and friends in the communi- ty are planning a fundraiser in Walnut Grove on Saturday, August 21 to raise funds for medical expenses.

Pectin is a gelling agent and is a natural plant carbo- hydrate found in many fruits, usualb the riper the fruit, the tess pectin it con- tains. Not all fruit has ade- quate pectin to form a gel. so many recipes call for added commercial pectin, which is available in powdered and liquid form. In many cases, they are NOT .interchange- able and must be used as directed by the manufactur- er. In some recipes, pow- dered gelatin is used in place of pectin. Gelatin-containing recipes must be refrigerated because they grow mold very fast if kept at room tempera- ture and should be used within 3-4 weeks. Also, these products should not be frozen or canned. The following tips help create a great batch of jam or jelly: **Make only one batch at a time. When you double batches, they usually do not gel properly. **Sterilize jars by boil- ing them for 10 minutes. Pre-treat-the lids as directed by the manufacturer. **Remove bubbles and wipe jar rims and threads with a clean, damp cloth. Any jam or seeds that stick to the jar rim or threads can prevent the lid from sealing. **Process the filled jars in a boiling water canner. The Extension Service does not recommend sealing jars with paraffin because an air- tight seal may not form.

If your jam or jelly does not gel, consider using it as a pancake or ice cream syrup. To prevent this from happen- ing again, do not over-heat during cooking because over- heating breaks down pectin. Do not use old pectin that was stored at home from last year or bought from a store selling old stock. Even new pectin can be a problem when stored in a hot place. Keep in mind that many low sugar pectin products will create a sorer gel. I l ............
