Boil all the goodness out of bones, no matter what they are. Bone marrow and all the tiny bits of meat clinging to the bone make excellent soup starter. Boil them, cool the broth and pick through it to remove gristle and most of the fat. Break up the marrow. Package it for the freezer or make a soup right away.

Do you buy canned beans for recipes? Don't. Instead, buy dry beans, cook them in your slow cooker or on the stove, then package them in two cup portions or whatever your recipes call for, then freeze them. Thaw them in the refrigerator or microwave when you need them.

You don't need anything special. No lemon juice or vinegar or anything but water. Put your wet dishcloth or sponge in the microwave and turn it on long enough to sanitize it, then use a rag to wipe the microwave clean while it's still moist.
