Don't Toss Your Vegetable Scraps!....Make Stock/Broth!Share the ♥
Here's your basic directions:
1. Heat oil in a soup pot.... Add your vegetable scraps and possibly even toss in garlic, parsley, thyme, or bay leaves. Cook over high heat for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
2. Add a pinch of salt and enough water to cover the vegetables and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Strain. Discard vegetables. At this point you can refrigerate the stock if you'll be using it soon or pressure can it for long term storage.
