|It does kinda look like garbage...|
While reading an article in this month's issue of All You magazine , I was directed to The Sweet Beet for directions on how to use your "garbage" to make vegetable stock. I had already been collecting beef and pork bones in a bag in the freezer, but the idea of saving egg shells and veggie scraps was revolutionary! I've told you how I've made chicken bone broth in the past, but I hadn't tried veggie broth or pork/beef broth yet.
So...last night I put my pork & beef bones in the crockpot (along with some tallow) with about a dozen egg shells and some veggies. I poured warm water over it all and then a cap full of vinegar. I covered it and left it turned off for about an hour and then turned it on low and went to bed. When I get home tonight, there should be some delicious broth ready to be strained!
