Recipe Notes

  • *Avoid vegetables like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, or cauliflower as they will add a bitter taste to the stock.
  • Add many other vegetable scraps (think sweet!) – i.e. corn cobs, winter squash, zucchini, and other squash, beet greens, fennel, chard, lettuce, parsnips, green beans, pea pods, bell peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, asparagus, and herbs like dill, thyme, parsley, cilantro, and basil.
  • Refrigerate the stock for up to 4 days, or freeze up to 3 months.
