I have heard of something like this before.

Since I have been milling I have been studying a lot about using bean flour.

I've made this fudge. I'm always ready and willing to try new recipes and I was really excited about this one. I use beans to cook with a lot and who doesn't love fudge? So I had very high hopes for this one. I have to say we were really disappointed. I ended up having to throw most of it out. The beans took on an odd consistency and it just was not good. I really did think I would love this one, but it just didn't turn out that way. Maybe someone else will have better luck with this recipe though!

Thanks for the welcome! :0) You're right, the mills are not cheap! We've given some thought to getting one to grind our own our flour, but we're not quite there yet. But speaking of beans and uses of bean flour, I know a lady that grinds chickpeas through hers and then takes the flour, makes a paste out of it and that's what she washes with when she showers! She said that a lady she once knew from India who had really soft and beautiful skin told her it's something they do in India. So she tried it and liked it. I've never done that, but it's something I've never forgotten, lol.

OH, so odd you would mention that about the bathing; I'm allergic to soap, shampoo, laundry detergent...I've had to return to our ancestral answers, and I bathe with ground oatmeal, dry milk powder, honey and olive oil.

I've done the baking soda paste and vinegar in my hair before. But I could never get past the first couple of weeks with my oily hair. I know they say if you just stick with it through that first few weeks, it evens itself out in the end. I guess I lacked the stick-to-it-ness, lol. I also use vinegar in my laundry all the time. I use an inordinate amount of vinegar for this and that. It's so good for so many things!

Yeah, weaning off the soap and shampoo takes a month.
