Jean this is aa very nice use of the throw away business of cooking. I appreciate your thoughtfulness in responding to some questions I had. The broth came out quite flavorful. I made vegetable beef soup for DH and I for lunch using the broth and then froze the soup leftovers for another day. Thank you. I already started another bag of scraps in the freezer for broth to make lentil soup.
Wonderful use for peelings - it's like a 2nd use - how could you NOT do this?! I added parsley, a couple bay leaves and just a pinch of italian seasoning. My broth was peelings/trimmings from broccoli, caulif, lettuce, carrots, celery, onions, fennel and sweet peppers. VERY delicious! Thanks for the great idea!
