Vegetable Scrap Stock

Vegetable Scrap Stock

Onion peels, the cobs from corn, carrot ends… you wouldn’t get star baker if you were to serve these up for dinner. However, they’re so full of flavour and nutrients, they’re ready to become a free stock or broth for you. (A broth is seasoned with salt and pepper. Stock isn’t as you’ll want to add it to other dishes)

Collect your veg scraps over a few weeks, by storing them in the freezer. I would recommend giving anything you want to use in the stock a wash before freezing it, even if they’re parts of vegetables which wouldn’t typically be washed like the ends of onions. This is because they will all be submerged in the water to make the stock so muddy parts of the onion would lead to a mud flavoured stock!
