I've done that before, just not lately. Not much room in the freezer at the moment, so I've been adding the scraps to the compost piles instead. But I agree it makes a great soup stock or even as a substitute for plain water when cooking rice, beans, or other foods, as long as you don't drain them. Adds a bit more flavor.

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

Nice article. Most I already do or know, I liked the idea of pre-preparing the dried beans. I use up rather than having small bits, as I make large pots of soup, etc. and freeze them so I have quick meals for busy days. But it's kind of the same principle.

Here's the article where they talked about keeping a soup starter in the freezer. I've done it for along time. And yesterday when I read this, I realized that that container is chockful of AA ingredients!

No container here, frankly this is the first I've heard of doing a Bits Container.

No, afraid all that doesn't sound too good to me (well, the apple peels would be ok). I use any scraps like that for my compost. What I am not using to eat raw is usually bruised, battered, etc. I do like cabbage core, so I usually cut that up.

I just realized after reading an article on SP for meal tips for small families that I have a wonderful AA thing going on--tip worthy. Here goes!!

I keep a container in my freezer. In it I keep veggie peelings, ends I've cut off, etc. I save that, usually for soup. Sometimes I defrost it and run it through my juicer for broth. sometimes it goes into my food processor to be chopped finely before going into the crock pot or pressure cooker.

So what's so wonderful about that? Well, in my container right now, I have some spinach leaves, beet skins, apple and carrot peels, onion ends, the core of cabbage out of my garden, sliced greens that seemed to tough for my salad that I didn't have time to braise, and some other things toward the bottom that I can't remember. Oh yes, the bottom of celery bunch. Celery isn't AA, but it DOES add a salty flavor to my broth without me needing to add any sodium.

The point is, it's all anti angiogenic healthy stuff. And it will add LOTS of anti-angiogenic goodness to my next soup pot or stew or whatever would benefit from a broth.

Do you keep a Bits and Pieces container in your freezer?
