I was thoroughly impressed by all these ideas. I have to be honest and say I have been buying broths! And I have been complaining about the prices! When I make them myself they have no taste so this article has given me some new ideas.

    I save and freeze my vegetable scraps except the cruciferous vegetables, as well as the water which I've used to steam vegetables in. Every couple of weeks, I use the scraps and vegetable water with some spices, olive oil, and some additional water to cover the scraps and simmer on a low flame for 30-45 minutes. If you cook it longer, bitterness will result. If cruciferous vegetables are used, bitterness will result, too. I strain the vegetable mess from the liquid. When cool, I freeze the stock in ice cube trays. I fill bags with the cubes and keep them in the freezer. Each cube is about 2 tablespoons of stock. If you eat eggs, you can put in eggshells. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to the pot to leech the calcium from the eggshells to the stock. I use the stock in recipes when stock is called for or when I cook up legumes for some added nutrition.

    When I find organic broth at Dollar Tree dollar store I buy it. But homemade in the crockpot ALWAYS tastes better. And the crockpot is an indentured servant . . . so easy, it cooks itself.

    Very interesting, I always boil my meat bones for broth and I know it is delicious but I didn't realize it had so many nutrients.

  I make my own chicken stock for sure! Can't be beat. Read the next one, too. Balsamic vinegar reduction. OMG that is soooooo good.

HUGS and thanks for sharing.

    I find broth at dollar stores, but I make a lot of my own, too.
