  1. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    Beans are a cheap thing to practice on for new canners (pintos were actually the first thing I canned). They are also a great time saver because you can get a lot cooked and stored rather than soaking a small batch of dry beans each night before you want to use them and waiting an hour for it...

    how long can you keep dry beans before they go bad? I have some pintos that have been stored in glass canning jars for a couple of years. They are looking dark in color compared to fresh one and am just wondering how long you can safely keep and use them. Thanks for any info.

    I hope this is in the right place, mods please move if it's not. Today at Market Basket they had their Ball Jar display and I grabbed two pallets of 12 wide mouth quart jars for $8.99 each. I have ten pounds of flour and bread flour taking up space in my fridge. I'm so excited!

    Dry Pack Canning with Paint Cans might give this a go... the oxygen absorbers and baggies inside would be very important.

We have different EF's & the medical EF will be drying up soon. We were pounced on by my unexpected surgery...& after paying the 20% for the...

    My family does not drink "dry" milk. If your family drinks "dry" milk kudos to you! Instead, I mix it to use in recipes. You can make "cream" by mixing half the water. It really cuts down on the fat content. ~Dry milk is wonderful when making cream soups and if you do not have Campbell's...

    Hi Everyone :) Ok i have a question and I'm sorry if it sounds dumb. I also can barely see this as I type (forgot my glasses at home and haven't left the office yet lol). Here's the thing. The beautiful suits I bought for work and some tops are to be dry cleaned. Some of the pants I can wash...

    So I usually use canned bean since it's faster to add to Gumbo, chilli and whatever. I usually only use 1 can at a time. Therefore dry beans we're never practical for me. But I read this tip on 5 $ dinner. Cook a large batch of dry beans and seperate into 2 cups servings and freeze. You can...
  11. Question and Answer
    I usually avoid dry clean only, but someone gave me some nice suits that fit both my daughter and I, so now they both need cleaned, as well as a few cocktail style dresses my daughter bought for prom and homecoming. I usually see coupons for local cleaners in the savings safari flyers that come...

    Anyone else? I noticed tonight that DS hands were dry and chapped from (I assume) the extra handwashing we have been doing. Pulling out the lotion and going to keep him moisturized along with the rest of us. I'm ready for summer :down:

    I would love to hear from other dry milk users which one they prefer. I love to keep dry milk on hand at all times for baking or cooking but even to use when we run out of regular milk. I've read other people's experiences with using dry milk just for drinking and I would love to find one with...
