    While it's not difficult to use dried beans from their natural state, I find that I don't tend to remember that I need to soak/pre-cook the beans until it's too late to use them for dinner. The convenience of being able to reach in the pantry and open up a jar of beans that I've home-canned (without added preservatives) is worth the extra time and work. If desired, you can also make these beans salt-free; you can also add onions or jalapenos to the jar if desired, amounts will vary according to taste. Yield is only for one jar; your actual yield will depend on how many jars you can. Time is approximate and does not include soaking time for beans. This recipe comes from the Ball Blue Book.

    An inexpensive alternative to the store-bought variety. To check for color-fastness: test a bit of cleaner on an inconspicuous area of the carpet before using the first time.

    Recipe #101568

    From the Thursday magazine, this works like a charm and is so easy to put together! Enjoy!

    Recipe #82410

    An old family recipe from my husband's aunt Clara. If you blanch the garlic first it won't turn blue or green from the vinegar, as can sometimes happen. The recipe is easily divided for fewer jars, see note at end. If fresh dill is not available, dill seed may be substituted. A small hot red chile can be added to each jar.

    I found this on top tastes, posted by Teresa/Thunderbird. The recipe is not already on RZ, and although I haven't tried this yet, I want to keep it for reference. Teresa has many good recipes posted here at RZ, so I feel comfortable that it should be a good recipe and am willing to share it before I make this. Thanks, Teresa!

    Recipe #306717

    Don't you just love that kettle cooked popcorn available at county fairs? It's sweet; it's salty; it's deliciously crunchy. It's usually pretty expensive too! This is a great, SUPER EASY recipe to make it yourself - just like you enjoy at the fair - with only 3 ingredients! I ran across a similar recipe years ago online and tweaked it a bit... in other words, perfected it. I hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #359110

    After a great deal of experimentation in my "lab" (which looks a lot like my kitchen), I developed a cheap, easy to make fake "Jet Dry" type dishwasher rinse aid that works very well. It's natural and non-chemical, but you still need to keep it out of reach of kiddies due to the alcohol content.

    Recipe #408794

    This natural method dries out the rash very quickly. Hope you have a quick recovery! I have to give this credit to Nancy a client of mine. She uses it and swears by it. Make sure you wash clothes and shoes as soon as possible. To relieve itchy skin whatever it may be, give it a try.

    Recipe #128233

    This recipe only uses baking soda, vinegar and castille soap. Not all will have castille soap in the cupboard but some already rely upon it for other things. I have been using this regularly so I feel comfortable posting it. I only use 1/8 to 1/4 cup and have no issues with the laundry at all. According to the original source http://greenliving.nationalgeographic.com/make-high-efficiency-detergent-20282.html "this recipe yields very few suds because it lacks the chemical-based emulsifying surfactants that are found in mainstream detergents."
