    Default Home made broth... for free.... and super easy...

    Save all vegetable peelings from carrots, onions and celery to make into the
    most delicious broth!

    Simply wash the vegetable before peeling and then peel your vegetable(for
    whatever recipe you are preparing).

    Keep a large container in your freezer into which you can continually add these
    vegetable peelings. When the container is full dump into a large pan, cover
    with water, bring to a boil and then simmer for 1 -1 1/2 hours. Strain and you

    have an absolutely FREE vegetable broth...don't pay $$$ for canned broth when
    you can have a more flavorful (the most intense flavor of the vegetable is in
    the peel) broth that is also more nutritious, quick and easy.

    I freeze the carcass from a rotisserie chicken. When I have 2 of them I make homemade chicken broth out of them.

    I freeze the chicken broth in 2 cup containers.

    Another tip after you've made your homemade broth- freeze an ice cube tray full and then pop the cubes into a ziploc bag.

    When you've made soups and you're getting ready to serve your kids, pop 1 of the frozen cubes into their bowl. It will cool their dinner down faster without watering it down, giving them a fast, healthy dinner.

    I used to buy chicken broth by the can at $.50 each, I now just make my own

    I use 3 chicken theighs, carrots, onion, red bell pepper, sage, salt and pepper, garlic, and cilantro

    Good, healthy and most of all cheap. All it costs you is your time. You have to skim off the fat, so I just strain it and place the whole pan in the fridge and skim the fat the next morning.
    I have sought your face with all my heart, be gracious to me according to your promise Psalm 119:58
