Homemade Organic Vegetable Stock

Whoa whoa whoa! Hold on a minute…don’t throw away those good veggie scraps!

Not when you can make your own homemade organic veggie stock!  I just throw all my scraps I get each week from the farmers market into a container and freeze until ready to use.

As you can see, you can create some fantastic looking sculpture as well. LoL!!

 I get a flavorful stock with a variety of earthy notes each time, depending on what I buy from the local farmer’s market that weekend.

Don’t throw any of it out, because as you can see here, with the diverse amount of veggie scraps I collect I achieve a nice complexity of flavors.

I use the biggest stock pot I have with this bunch, and fill with fresh water just to cover the top of the veggies,  and I add 1 Tablespoon of sea salt, then simmer for 3-4 hours.

Until I get this rich full-bodied stock!

Plus this!!

Now I can freeze some and use some now in all the yummy recipes I whip up for the next couple of weeks!

Yum food!! Yum art!!

Our Thanksgiving

Had a homemade Thanksgiving with my family. My fiancee’ and I we’re the hosts. Mom and my son gobbled up lots of our delectable fixin’s along with the beautiful and scrumptious free range fresh turkey my lady made. Fun times had by all, even my sweet chocolate lab enjoyed some of the big bird! We had some out of this world from scratch pumpkin and mile high apple pie for dessert.
