Making your own stock is a healthy and convenient alternative to those purchased in a store. Plus, it saves money.
When I’m cooking and chopping vegetables, I save the scraps and refrigerate them until I’m ready to make my stock. The great thing is, you know exactly what the ingredients are. The possibilities are endless.
  1. Whether you use fresh produce or scraps, be sure to clean your produce and place aside.
  2. In a large pot, add water. I add a cup or two more than needed. My need is decided by what container I’ll use to store the stock.
  3. Add desired spices and herbs to the water.
  4. Add the vegetables you’ve picked.
  5. Bring the water to a boil then cover and reduce heat to a simmer.
  6. Simmer for an hour.
  7. When stock has cooled, strain the vegetables from your stock. (Colander or cheese cloth work well.)
8. Store in air-tight container, refrigerate and enjoy!
