Make family gifts from the kitchen with UMaine Extension 

University of Maine Cooperative Extension will offer a free program about making edible holiday gifts beginning 4-4:45 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at Porter Memorial Library in Machias. Classes meet each Tuesday through Dec. 17. 

“Family Gifts from the Kitchen” will focus on creating mixes using basic ingredients and learning healthy eating tips. Jars, ingredients and samples will be provided. Mixes will include oatmeal-raisin muffins, alphabet soup and homemade granola. Families who attend all three sessions will receive a gift bag on the last day. Children must be accompanied by adults.
