For Beth who needs help using self-rising flour:   I wouldn't use any
other kind!   It's very easy to use the same recipe that calls for plain
flour; all you need to do is leave out the baking soda, baking powder and
salt.  Those are already in self-rising flour; that's what makes them
self rising.   Try it on one of your favorite recipes.

And for Dona who wants to make her own pimentos.  My mother made them all
the time and now that she's gone, I wish I had taken more careful
lessons.  But, yes, they are red bell peppers and I found these
directions for making pimentos in my 36 year old Betty Crocker cookbook :

"Wash.  Heat in 400 over until skins blister.  Peel skins off and dry
pack in jars, then cook in hot water bath for 10 minutes."

A hot water bath requires a piece of equipment called a canner and
somebody else will need to help you understand how to do that step if you
don't have one of those.  This is where I wish I'd been listening a
little closer to Mother.  You girls who still have your moms, LISTEN TO
HER, LEARN FROM HER while you can.  And while you can, thank her for all
the good things she teaches you.  Hug her a little more often.


                  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

In answer to Beth's question:

I use Self Rising Flour for fried chicken (and vegetables, too!)  I just dip
boneless chicken breasts (which have soaked in buttermilk!) in the flour and

I also experimented this past weekend -- we were hit by the winter storm and
I wanted to bake cookies, but I was caught without enough regular flour, so
I substituted Self Rising.  I omitted the baking soda and salt.  The cookies
came out pretty good -- they did not brown like regular chocolate chip
cookies and had a slightly different taste and were more "cake" like -- but
my boys loved them!

Hope this helps!

This is for Beth.  I have an Australian Women's Weekly Cookbook that
uses a lot of self raising flour.  In the glossary they say that you can
substitute all purpose flour and baking powder in the porportions of 1
cup all purpose flour to 2 tsp baking powder.  Perhaps this will help in
using it in your tried and true recipes.
Here's their recipe for BUTTERMILK SCONES I haven't tried it.
3 cups (450g) self-raising flour
1/4 tsp	salt
1 tsp icing sugar
60 g butter
1 3/4 cups (430ml) buttermilk, approximately
Grease a 23cm square slab cake pan.  Sift dry ingredients into large
bowl, rub in butter, stir in enough buttermilk to mix to a soft, sticky
dough.  Turn dough onto floured surface, knead until smooth.  Press
dough out to 2cm thickness, cut into 5.5cm rounds.  Place scones into
prepared pan. Bake in very hot oven (500 - 525 degrees F) about 15
minutes.  Makes 16
Good Luck.

Hi Deb,
This is my favorite stir-fry sauce. I also use it as a marinade, but omit
the cornstarch and sesame oil. I don't have proportions, so will just give
you the ingredients to alter to your taste.
Mix together:
Soy sauce
Hoisin sauce
Dry sherry
Dash sesame oil (optional)
Chopped fresh garlic
Grated fresh ginger
Sliced green onions
Toss in wok with your favorite stir fry. When sauce is hot add some
cornstarch dissolved in water (slurry). Stir until thickened. Please try
this as a marinade also, it is wonderful with chicken or flank steak.

	I just started getting the wonderful recipe. In one of the post someone
mentions using the crock pot for making apple butter. This sounds
wonderful, could someone please share the recipe with me. Thank you again
for the wonderful recipes my menus were getting a little boring.

(Note to subscribers: The original message with this recipe has become lost
and I would really love it if anyone who saved it would send it to me so I
can post it to the list again.  I have had several requests to reprint it
and I cannot find it, as well as the wonderful lady who sent it doesn't have
it any longer either-   Thanks so much!            Kaylin)

Dear Kaylin,
Thanks for the great service!  I'm eager to hear some ideas/recipes for
household cleaning solutions and stain removers. Any tried and true
recipes out there?
Thanks, Donna

I have really enjoyed all the many fun and new recipes I have found here.  I
am hoping that someone out there has one that I need.  I purchased a new
belgium waffle maker for my 17 year old sons birthday.  He wanted real
Belgium waffles with the works.  The cooker came with this wonderful recipe
for them.  I can't find it anywhere or in any of my cookbooks.  What made it
so unique is that this waffle recipe called for yeast.  They were so yummy.
If anyone can help me out please send your recipe in.  Thanks for helping
out a mother in distress.

This isn't really a recipe, but we all still have to keep things clean
around the house along with all our cooking so thought maybe it would be
useful for getting the cleaning done quickly.  After all we want a lot of
time to enjoy our first love, that of cooking!!!!!!  This was sent to me by
one of my pen pals on the net.
