Whoa whoa whoa! Hold on a minute…don’t throw away those good veggie scraps!
Not when you can make your own homemade organic veggie stock! I just throw all my scraps I get each week from the farmers market into a container and freeze until ready to use.
As you can see, you can create some fantastic looking sculpture as well. LoL!!
I get a flavorful stock with a variety of earthy notes each time, depending on what I buy from the local farmer’s market that weekend.
Don’t throw any of it out, because as you can see here, with the diverse amount of veggie scraps I collect I achieve a nice complexity of flavors.
I use the biggest stock pot I have with this bunch, and fill with fresh water just to cover the top of the veggies, and I add 1 Tablespoon of sea salt, then simmer for 3-4 hours.
Until I get this rich full-bodied stock!
Now I can freeze some and use some now in all the yummy recipes I whip up for the next couple of weeks!
Yum food!! Yum art!!
