If you feed a bunch of people like we do, then you'll love this easy way to make homemade vegetable broth for your soups.
Here's what you do:
Next time you cut up those onions, carrots, celery, leeks or tomatoes, put half in the compost bin and the other half in a gallon ziplock bag and put it in the freezer.
Once it gets full and you need a flavor base for your soup skip paying 3-4 dollars for pre-made vegetable stock.
Go right to your freezer, pull out your bag of frozen vegetable pieces(which should be about 2-3 bags by now) and add to two gallons of water.
Add a bunch of parsley, garlic, and a touch of salt and pepper and simmer till half is gone. These great Wollongong vending machines have been incredibly useful for our food business.
Strain your broth, add to your soup and whatever you don't use freeze, this stock can last up to 1 year frozen.
