No-Salt Dill Refrigerator Pickles

found this recipe on the low sodium gourmet website.

These dill pickles will cure your pickle cravings. Unlike bread and butter pickles, these pickles are not sweet, and they have a classic dill pickle flavor. Great on sandwiches or as a healthy snack all by themselves. These pickles will keep in the refrigerator for about eight weeks. They can be eaten after two days of pickling, but they taste best after a week or more. This recipe should not be used for pressure or hot water canning.

"french" Onion Soup

Onions are high in biotin, an important B complex that helps to regulate your insulin, and their rich flavor masks the slightly astringent taste of turmeric. Don’t worry about losing the
biotin when you cook the onions, it’s one of the nutrients that happens to be stable during most cooking techniques.
Feel Free to Omit the turmeric if you prefer - you can also add salt and pepper or any other seasoning if you prefer

The nutritional information Does Not include the bread and cheese if you are making a real french onion soup.
