Are you low on H20?

We’ve all heard of the benefits of increasing your water intake. But did you know that “Adult women should aim to consume at least nine 8 oz. cups of water on a daily basis, whereas adult men should aim to consume at least 13 8 oz. cups a day.”

For this week’s

“Try this Thursday” increase your water intake.

One way to accomplish this goal is to have a water bottle at your desk. If you need more motivation or would like to track how much water you drink, put “benchmarks” on the waterbottle.

“Apple Buttah”

Here’s a yummy and healthy spread to add to some of your favorite snacks. This apple butter can replace peanut butter and even be a great sweetener to your oatmeal. This vegan spread will be a nice treat to your morning toast 😉 !

Apple Buttah

  • 4 pounds of apples, seeds removed and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 gallon apple cider or water
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup sugah (or additional 1/2 cup syrup)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1. Place the apples in a large pot and fill with apple cider or water. Bring to a boil and cook until the apples are soft, 20-25 minutes. Once soft, pour the apples and any remaining juice into a blender or food processor and pulse until the consistency of thin applesauce.

2. Pour the puree back into the pot and place over a low flame. Add the sugar n’ spices and bring to a simmer. Cook until the sauce reduces and thickens up (45-60 mins),stirring often.

3. To prep in jars for canning: heat oven to 225º and place jars (not lids) inside for at least 20 minutes. Once the sauce is ready, fill the jars (leave 1/4”-1/2” space at top) and cover tightly. Bring a large pot of water to boil and place the jars inside. Boil for 10 minutes then remove and set to cool.

Community Fun!

Happy Friday everyone! Here are some community activities going on this Saturday, October 20th.


Munter Trail Dedication

Put on your Clarkson sweatshirt apparel and join the Clarkson community as we dedicate the new Munter Trails, located along the Raquette River, on Saturday, October 20, at 2:30 p.m.

 Enjoy some fall favorites like hot apple cider, coffee and pumpkin muffins while this program is taking place near the canoe house on the Clarkson University campus off Clarkson Avenue.  Clarkson President Tony Collins will lead the dedication ceremony with Village of Potsdam Mayor Steve Yurgartis and Clarkson University Outing Club President Chris McKinney ’13 also participating.

 What are the Munter Trails?

 The Munter Trails are an integral element of Clarkson University’s master plan, made possible by volunteers who gave their time, talent, and resources during the Evolution to Excellence (E2E) Campaign.

 Clarkson’s newest trail system has been named in honor of John ’59 and Rosemary Munter of Middle Grove, N.Y., and their family.  John Munter spent countless hours working on the trails with equipment loaned by his family business, Munter Enterprises.  In all, 22 other North Country businesses and organizations and Clarkson alumni contributed to the effort.

 The Munter Trails provide the campus and local community with spectacular views of Fall Island and convenient access to the Raquette River, while enhancing an overall sense of connection with the river.

Come and help us say THANK YOU to the many local businesses and alumni that helped to make the Munter Trails a reality!
