Question

At the risk of sounding totally ignorant..... what the heck is Watkins? I've never heard of it before, but it sounds like a wide variety of products.... very interesting

What is Watkins?

www.watkinsonline.com/home

Watkins is a 135-year-old company based in Minnesota with more than 300 every-day consumable products that enhance your life and are striving to be ecologically friendly.

There are various ways to run the business ~ certainly party plan is one venue, but not the only one. I have been in the business for quite a few years and have only done one party. I prefer one-on-one sales and shows while others prefer to do fund-raising plans and still others prefer to do just wholesale buying of the products for their own consumption or to sell to a few friends and family members. Still others prefer prefer to build their business via the internet. The Watkins business can be tailored to what you want it to be.

Watkins is famous for its vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, extracts, spices as well as its medicinal and personal care products, cleaning products, and much more.

Thanx Sandie aka rosan ,

I didn't think to go on-line under Watkins to find a local rep. I can't afford to get into another business, time-wise, but I definately WILL help someone elses business!

I've always heard about Watkins so I went to the website.

I was going to request a catalog...in hopes of ordering a few things. The form you have to fill out in order to get a catalog is ridiculous!!!

Just a little FYI...

For those of you who are familiar with Watkins or have sold them...I just watched a movie today about Bill Porter. It was called Door to Door. I was familiar with him as Watkins had done a write up on him when I was selling the products. I was totally impressed with him then and the movie was enjoyable.

One more thing....

I used to have a cookbooklet with the recipe for Senate Bean Soup. I believe the booklet was called the Magic of Soup. But unfortunately I can not find it.

Does anyone have this booklet or this recipe? I would be soo thankful!!

Hi ~

I am a Wakins rep and I think I have the recipe booklet you are requesting but the problem is I have to hunt for it. I will start looking later this evening and post it when I find it for you.

Watkins Version of U.S. Senate Bean Soup

(This is from the Watkins "Magic of Soup Cookbook" published in 1991.)

1-1/2 pounds (3-1/2 cups) dry navy or Great Northern beans
2 cups coarsely chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil
10 cups water
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup Watkins Chicken Soup base
1 teaspoon Watkins Thyme
1 teaspoon Watkins Garlic Flakes
1/2 teaspoon Watkins Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Watkins Ground Cloves
1-1/2 pounds ham bone or ham hocks or 1 to 2 cups diced ham
Salt, if desired, to taste

Soak beans overnight in enough water to cover. Next day drain beans; rinse. Saute onions in butter in large soup kettle. Add beans and 10 cups water; bring to a boil. Add remaining ingredients, returning to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer at least 4 hours. If using ham bone or hocks, remove and strip off meat. Discard bones, skin and fat. Chop meat; return to soup. Adjust seasonings at this point. Serve hot with crusty French bread or Italian rolls.

Makes 8 servings.
