There’s absolutely no reason why you have to go out and buy new vegetables to make stock, vegetable or otherwise. Start a “stock bag” in your freezer and place whatever odds and ends of vegetables and herbs you’ve left with after you make a meal. Carrots gone soft and mushy? Your stock bag is the answer. Celery, once firm and crunchy, now looks wilted and bleak – don’t toss it, just add it to your stock bag. When the bag gets full, you’re ready to make a pot of stock – it’s that easy! Isn’t it great putting everything in your kitchen to good use and not wasting a scrap?
