I had mentioned on a prior post about dried beans and chicken broth. I thought I would expand on that a bit.
I bought 3 kinds of beans, 1lb of beans $.99 to $1.27 vs a can of beans for same or higher price.
I had made some chicken broth from the left over chicken from dinner – $0 vs $2.00 and higher for store broth.
I soaked the beans overnight in the broth. I then cooked the beans in new broth until tender.
Then I used some that day, and froze the rest, about 6 cups, to be used at a later date!
A little bit of your time and imagination will say you a lot in the pocket book and the waistline!
