EXCLUSIVE: Reed announces plans for largest infrastructure investment in 30 yrs.


ATLANTA-- Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed broke news about plans for a massive infrastructure re-haul for the city of Atlanta during his interview with 11Alive's Karyn Greer on 11Alive News at noon.

Hundreds of questions came into 11Alive's Facebook and Twitter accounts for the planned interview. One of them was from Justin Cullifer: "It looks like there are thousands of new apartments being built throughout Atlanta, but the roads around those new buildings have not been expanded or even paved. Does the mayor believe it's OK to pack in more full time residents without improving traffic flow?"

Apple season in Georgia

Apple season in Georgia

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Georgia apple season in here!  This means it’s time to make canned apples and make apple jellies and preserves. According to Menia Chester, Director of Fulton County Cooperative Extension, creating a delicious apple dish is a project the entire family will love.

To create your apple “masterpiece”, you must have the proper ratio of fruit, pectin (assists in gel creation), acid (needed for gel formation and flavor) and sugar (serves as the preservative for the product) or successful jellied products. Fruit low in acid or pectin may need additional acid or pectin added to ensure a proper gel formation.

According to Chester, the most common questions regarding how jellies, jams, fruit preserves, and fruit butters made have equally common responses:

Jelly is usually made by cooking fruit juice with sugar.
