Don’t Forget the Indiana Grown Beverages for Christmas

first_img SHARE Indiana Milk and wine for ChristmasGot the Indiana milk and Indiana wine ready for Christmas? Both have their place at Christmas time, and Hoosier-made wines make a great gift.This Christmas Eve American Dairy Association, Indiana wants to see pictures of those special milk and cookie preparations for Santa, according to general manager Deb Osza.“As we all know Santa drinks milk and you can follow our hashtag, #SantaDrinksMilk. We’re involved with dairy promotion with Santa in Dairyland at two of the biggest Simon malls in the state, and we’ll be awarding prizes. We want you to show us your milk and cookies and we’re going to have a lot of fun with that.”Someone who shares will win an iPad Air. And if you’re close enough to one of Indiana’s 71 wineries Jeanette Merritt with the Indiana Wine Grape Council suggests picking up a bottle to pair with that Christmas meal.“One of my favorite pairings for a honey glazed ham or a ham loaf that you’re having for one of your Christmas meals, is a dry rose. Chambourcin is a grape we grow a lot here in Indiana. It makes a red grape and many of our wineries, like French Lick and Mallow Run and Oliver Winery make a dry rose. So it’s a pink wine but it’s different than a pink zinfandel that people may be familiar with that comes in a box and you can buy in a grocery store. This would be a dry wine that would pair fantastically with a pork dish.”Merritt suggests the state signature wine, Traminette, a white wine, if you’re serving poultry. She thinks beef needs a red wine.“I think Chambourcin is another great option for a beef dish.”Gifts of Indiana wine are a nice touch at Christmas or New Year’s, and Merritt adds, “We don’t always have to worry about pairing it with food. I don’t want people to over think what they’re going to eat and drink, so if you’re taking a wine as a hostess gift it’s not necessarily something that person would have to open up at the table and share.”This year was a fruitful one for Indiana grape growers.

Mining investment to fall short by 40 percent this year: Energy ministry

first_imgPrior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the energy ministry expected four new smelters to start operations this year.However, only two smelters – a ferronickel smelter and lead bullion smelter – are slated for completion in 2020, energy ministry mineral director Yunus Saefulhak told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.The remaining two smelters – a nickel pig iron (NPI) smelter and a ferromanganese smelter – have had their expected operational dates pushed back to 2021 from 2020.“We have to be realistic. We will help those facilities that proceed with their development,” he said, adding that his office continued to find investors and electricity suppliers, among other things, for the delayed smelter projects. Investment in the mining industry is expected to fall short by US$4.74 billion this year, 40 percent of the initial target, as a result of delays in several smelter projects, the Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry has said.Lockdowns at various levels applied in many countries around the world to contain the spread of COVID-19 have disrupted material and labor supplies for the projects, adding more issues to developers’ financial problems, said the ministry’s coal director, Sujatmiko.“Smelter construction will only resume in July 2020,” he said during a webinar hosted by Cerah Foundation on Tuesday. Topics :center_img The pandemic-led investment shortfalls have added further delays to Indonesia’s ambitious smelter-development plan, which is part of a larger plan to transform the mineral-rich country from a commodity-driven economy to an industrial economy.Among the bigger smelter projects facing delays are those being developed by state-owned mining holding company MIND ID, officially PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Inalum), and its subsidiaries.“Our partners cannot operate [normally] so that automatically means there will be delays whether we like it or not,” said MIND ID president director Orias Petrus Moerdak on Tuesday.Some of the projects are expected to fully resume in October, added Orias, who was speaking before House of Representatives lawmakers in Jakarta. Meanwhile, the other projects resumed early work this month.MIND ID subsidiary PT Aneka Tambang (Antam), a diversified miner, has put on hold a 98 percent complete $289 million ferronickel smelter in East Halmahera, Maluku, because of a lack of electricity.Antam president director Dana Amin said the miner initially enlisted private consortium BGP to develop a power plant for the smelter but ended the deal because of “financial problems”.“There was a lack of risk management,” he said.Meanwhile, fellow subsidiary PT Timah, a tin miner, has brought in construction equipment to the site of its $80 million tin smelter in West Bangka, Bangka Belitung province.“They are still waiting for an opportunity for the contractors to enter Bangka,” said Orias, adding that developers were focused on designing the facility in the meantime.PT Freeport Indonesia, a gold and copper miner, has requested a one-year delay in the completion deadline of its $3 billion smelter in Gresik, East Java, to 2023.last_img read more
