Food waste is one of the biggest issues around right now so play your part -- don’t toss your vegetable scraps. Save some for stock: Many of the peels, stems, and other trimmings that you’ve been throwing away are full of flavor. Some make a more pleasing stock than others -- see below for what to save and what to toss -- in the compost bin, not the trash!
Vegetable Stock How-To
Keep scraps until you're ready to make stock: Simply rinse and place them in a labeled bag in the freezer. Once the bag is full, transfer the frozen scraps to a pot with a handful of whole peppercorns and completely cover with water. Simmer the stock for about an hour and season it with salt to taste; let it cool before straining and using.
