Aside

I’m so happy it’s soup making season. I love the cooler weather and delicious home made soup. One easy way to be ready to make almost any soup is to have a vegetable broth on hand. It is so easy to make your own, especially if  you’ve been saving up all your vegetable skins and scraps in the freezer.

I’ve been saving all those throw away onion peels, carrot and celery tops, zucchini and potato skins and keeping them in a plastic bag in the freezer. You save so much money making your own broth and you save the best flavors as well.

I grabbed my bag from the freezer and some veggies I had lying around and threw them in some boiling water. I added herbs from the garden and salt and pepper. Then brought the water up to a boil and let it boil for an hour.

Last just strain your broth, throw out the veggies this time and use your broth right away or refrigerate it. Can’t wait to make some soup in a few days in this chilly weather.

Enjoy

So Happy it’s Soup Making Season!
