How To Clean Chitterlings

Without salt or meat? Use other vegatables. Fresh Garlic (instead of
powdered, because it's mostly salt), low-fat broths, even salt-free or
low-sodium bullion cubes.

Also, dried herbs are good for vegatables, such as thyme, bay leaf,
dehydrated carrots, parsley flakes, mexican oregano.

If you're in the store, look for Sylvia's seasonings. She has one
that vegatable based with no salt.

Subject: spices/make spices

Does anyone know how to season vegetables without salt and meat? I
use powered garlic, pepper and lawry's season salt, smoked turkey
parts and sometimes chicken broth in everything so everything tastes
the same. Are there any other spices that would make vegetable

cuts it short, but the ideal thing is to take this as soon as you feel
the cold coming on. It's all safe enough to take several time in a 24
hour period, also:

1/2 of a fresh lemon
1 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. powdered cayenne pepper

helpful with feverish colds. And it tastes good!

Homemade Chicken Soup
Serves 8

This will help knock out your cold. Make sure the soup is piping hot.
While it is cooling down, inhale the aroma and vapors and that, in
itself, will open up your nasal passages. Feel better soon.


1 quart chicken stock (homemade, or good-quality canned)
4 cups cooked chicken
4 carrots, sliced into rounds
4 ribs of celery, sliced
1/2 pound egg noodles
salt and freshly ground pepper
fresh dill sprigs

Other ingredients you can add: green peas, green beans, sliced


If you are making this soup from meat leftover from a roast chicken,
you can begin by simmering the stock in the leftover carcass for
about an hour to boost the stock. Otherwise, bring the stock to a
boil and then turn the heat down so that it gently simmers. Add the
chicken, carrots, celery and any other vegetables and cook for about
5 minutes. Add the egg noodles and cook for another 5 minutes. The
vegetables should be crisp, but tender and the noodles should be
soft, but not mushy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into warm
soup bowls and garnish with fresh dill sprigs.

Note: Instead of noodles, you can make this soup with barley, white
or brown rice or any type of pasta. Adjust the final few minutes of
cooking time accordingly. Remember that pasta and grains will
continue to absorb water after cooking, so slightly under cook these

Subject: Re: Cake Recipe Request

I may have the name wrong, but it was called a Cold Oven Cake. I
guess it got the name because you place the cake in the oven then turn
it on. I remember some of the ingredients that was in there, maybe
someone can help me out. Eggs, butter, cake flour, bundt pan. Results
would be: the grain of the cake was rich and you could slice and eat
without icing. Does anyone recognize any of this?

Subject: How to clean Chitterlings

Step 1: Boil raw chitterlings for five minutes before cleaning them.
This does not affect the taste and will kill harmful bacteria and
prevent them from spreading around the kitchen.

Step 2: Always wash hands after touching raw chitterlings and before
touching anything or anyone.

Step 3: While the chitterlings are boiling for five minutes, wash
everything in the kitchen that the raw chitterlings have touched. Use
one tablespoon of bleach mixed in a gallon of water for cleaning.

Step 4: Clean the chitterlings only after they have been boiled for
minutes. Boiling them for five minutes will not affect the taste and
will make it easier to clean them.

Step 5: Cook cleaned chitterlings like always, and enjoy!
