i’ve been making my own vegetable stock as part of my zero waste efforts. we eat a lot of soup in the winter months and i’ve cut down on a lot of cardboard veggie stock cartons. we also eat a lot of salad and fresh veggies so i just keep this pot in the fridge and any peelings or stems get tossed in here until the next boiling. soups have been extra yummy thanks to the freshness factor. ¬†veggie peelings then get dumped in the compost¬†after boiling is done. it makes me feel so savvy and smart to get three different uses from our food stuffs.
