The careful reduction is a jus. Liquid gold in fine dining restaurants everywhere - I think they're the most fun to draw sauces on plates with, the most dramatic consistency.

Six pounds. That is it.

Speaking of stock. This morning I have a huge amount. Don't remember what it is called when you reduce it to a small quantity to store. It becomes a denser than dense gelatin. Anyway, that isn't going to happen in the crock pot. So, it is bubbling away in my biggest stock pot.

60, I love that stock tip! (yes, I meant for that to be punny - hee) Hate waste and make my own stocks anyway. Am going to start doing this. Thanks!

I just read this OAMC planner and thought it would help me planning. It is really intended to keep you from having to cook a family meal on the days you are busy preparing a holiday meal in advance. It wasn't what I was looking for, but I might use it. Some of the soups are interesting.

My baby steps for this week: Clean the house early in the week. Declutter, etc. It shouldn't take too much the day before Thanksgiving to hit the "hot spots." [to quote fly lady.]

I suspect that FROGGZ101 visited the "Fly Lady" as well.

My tip:
When I need to peel or trim fresh veggies,
I wash them, then trim the scraps into a clean bowl. I then add the scraps to a ziplock bag: including pieces of bell pepper, peeling & ends of carrots, celery ends. I check my produce drawer at least a couple times a week. If anything isn't going to make it to the table in it's prime, I add it to my ziplock bag, which I store in the freezer. You don't need to precook these scraps.
I also add any left over herbs, especially the bay leaf that I fished out of my stew. If I have chicken bones, etc., I add them as well.

When the bag is full, I empty the contents into my crock pot. Fill it with water, and let it cook on low over night. The next morning, I strain the contents into a clean bowl. Chill this fresh & frugal veggie broth. Then package to freeze within 24 hours. If you don't have time to freeze right away, bring to a boil & simmer for 5 minutes to make sure there is no bacteria growing.
