This is a brilliant and easy way to make vegetable broth at home.
You will need :
– zip lock bag
– room in your freezer
– veggie scraps
I came across this recipe on Facebook and decided to give it a try. All you have to do is keep a ziplock bag in your freezer and every thing you are cutting some vegetables, throw the scraps in the bag. I put potato, onion and carrot skins, any herb stems like parley , dill, peppers, kale stems, anything you will not eat pretty much. Once the bag is full, I put all of them in a pot, fill it up with water and cook it for about 3-4 hours. You will see the color of the water will start changing and will turn into your deliciously smelling home made broth. Super cheap and easy to make.
Once it cools down, I put them in different size containers and freeze them. Whenever I cook, instead of adding water, I add my home made veggie broth. I tried to freezing them in glass containers but regardless of how much the bottle was filled, they kept shattering. Currently, I’m using plastic bottles to store. Plastic is not my first choice so if you have a tip on how to freeze the veggie broth in glass bottles without breaking them, please comment and let me know!
