E.C.9997 Your Friends The Herbs Mar 2014

E.C.9997 Your Friends The Herbs

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Our colonial forefathers called them "yarbs." Although herb with the "h" sounded is the more approved pronunciation, "erb" is also acceptable. Herbs are friendly things even though they're quite modest and a bit shy. You really have to know them well to appreciate all the things they are ready and eager to do for you. Everyone who enjoys preparing and eating delicious food should be as "at home" with herbs as with salt, pepper, and vanilla.

Look in your cupboard. There you will find the magic ingredients you use to add life and flavor to your everyday foods.

The presence of calcium (Ca) and/or magnesium (Mg) in water results in water being considered "hard." Calcium and magnesium ions in water react with heat, metallic plumbing, and chemical agents such as detergents to decrease the effectiveness of nearly any cleaning task. Hard water can be softened using an ion exchange softening process. This 2008 guide discusses the ion exchange water softening process and related equipment used for household water treatment.
