|Veggie stock sitting pretty in in my freezer. Cameo by fruit bars.|
Add eight to 10 cups of water to a large pot and let boil. Cut up vegetables of your choice (skins and all), and add them to the boiling water. Consider some fresh herbs (my favs) and salt and pepper to flavor your stock. Cover the stock and place on a low flame, letting it cook for two to three hours. Check on it periodically to taste and stir. Turn off flame and strain veggies in a soup strainer (can also be used for a soup). Freezer half or use your stock for another soup! Enjoy.
