Frugal Food Tip

July 25th, 2006 at 07:15 pm

I found the following tip on about.com

Any time you peel vegetables like carrots or potatoes, or trim vegetables like celery or onions, scrub them first, then freeze the peelings and trimmings until you have a gallon or so.

Put it in a pot of water and cook until everything is done, then strain the solids and use the remaining broth for a soup base.

    Don't stop with just soups. Try the broth in stews and chilli. The broth, used in moderation for things such as tacos and sloppy joes, can add a burst of flavor too.
