That Apple Cider vinegar looks worth a try.I use it a lot to make my two favourite preserves. pickled pears which are awesome with cheese, especially blue cheese. Very morish. Also chillie Apple jelly, they are on my plan for next weekend.


But I have a question on beans. I feel that it had to be way more expensive to use dried beans when you factor in the cooking time. I don't have a pressure cooker or insta put, so it's a stove top simmer. But I can buy a can of beans for $1 or often less. So I can't see the economics working out? What do you think?

It's not any cheaper for me to cook dried beans. a 1 lb bag of dried beans is about $2.  Maybe they could be cheaper if I found somewhere to buy in bulk.

I can often find canned beans on sale for 2 for a $1.

a 1 lb of dried beans makes 6-7 cups and a can of beans is about 1.75 cups.  4 cans of beans would be 7 cups.  so its the same price.  For me any way.  And this way I can have a variety of beans on hand and not worry about getting them cooked right.
