Dried Bean Broth

Soak a cup of dried beans overnight in cold water. Drain and cover with fresh water in a small saucepan. Simmer for an hour or so, until the beans are very tender, replenishing the water to keep the beans well covered. Stir from time to time. When cooked, season with pure herb salt (from health stores), strain, and use the broth in your juice. Enjoy the beans mashed with a little herb salt and olive oil - you've taken the trouble to cook them! Excellent for diabetes and cholesterol control.

Onion Tea

4 large onions, un-peeled but quartered

2 litres water

Bring the onions and water to the boil, reduce heat and simmer covered with a lid for 45 minutes. Remove from heat, mash the onions well - still inside the water - and allow to cool. Strain, pushing the pulp firmly against the sieve to extract as much juice as possible. Keep refrigerated or frozen in small quantities. Use as required.
