    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

    You can also save the liquid from your canned vegetables for broth. You can freeze or refrigerate the broth for future use.

    just an fyi, if you add some vinager aplash or two to the bones when you are boiling them down it will pull the calcium out of the bones so now the broth is even more healthy.

    Also if you crack or saw the bones open you'll get a much richer broth! that pulls all that goodness out of the middle that you won't get if you don't open up the bone!

    Wow, I wish I would have thought of that one years ago! I will definitely have to try making my own veggie broth. I've done beef & chicken hundreds of times, but never a vegetable broth. Thank you, Moola!

    (I was just going to click on the "thanks" button, but I didn't see it!)
    I am SO looking forward to "empty-nest syndrome"!

    WARNING USING CANNED VEGGIE LIQUID: there is tons of salt in canned veggies, unless you are using the salt free

    HOWEVER: any left over veggie, including whatever sauce etc you used can go into a zip for later use in soups

    FRZ or FRESH BROC: Have you noticed how much stems are in a bag? cut off the long stems chop them up and place in zip bag. --- add to this bag left over broc from cooking, a little chopped onion (not a lot) --- If using fresh broc cut and peel the stems, chop and stick in bag

    ALMOST FREE 'CREAM' of BROC: My kids were allergic to milk, so this really isn't a cream of anything but looks like it. In boiling water, toss in cut up potatoes, go ahead and leave on skins (*if you have a food mill it'll take care of them), if you don't have a mill - skin them (loses nutrition), when the potatoes are about half done toss in the froz broc and bits of onion .. Once they are both cooked soft (its the only time broc is cooked soft in my house <g>), pull out and put through the food mill (you can use a blender or food processor too, just add more of the cooking liquid) .. This usually comes out a pale green (actually pretty looking) .. Add more cooking stock, ham if you want, continue to cook. I usually add a bit of black and red pepper to bump flavors. If you have smoked paprika its nice addition too. Add fresh broc pieces for accent just before serving (*also good with cooked bacon pieces on top)
