Are You Saving Your Stems and Skins? Make Homemade Veggie Stock!
We’re all about frugality here at UA! You spend your hard-earned money on our co-op style produce, and we want to help you stretch your dollars as far as possible.
So here’s an important tip – SAVE YOUR STEMS, SKINS, AND OTHER PRODUCE SCRAPS! They are perfect for making easy, homemade veggie stock.
We keep a big sealable bag in our freezer where we can throw vegetable odds and ends: vegetables that have wilted beyond saving, the green parts from leeks, trimmings from carrots, and so on. Once this bag gets full, we use the contents to make broth.
If you’ve never made your own stock before, you’re in for a treat. With a short amount of prep time, you just let it simmer for hours and hours, and your entire house fills with the rich, comforting smell. Who wouldn’t want that?
