Easy, Delicious and Free Nutritional Stock

two-jars-of-liquidI love to make homemade soup and I also love to make gravy. So, one of the things I do is so very easy. If I steam any kind of vegetable or even boil clean eggs, I let the water cool and pour it into a jar to be stored in the fridge. I combine the vegetable water, etc., and then have a delicious and nutritious soup or gravy “stock” on hand. It adds a wonderful layer of flavor to my home cooking! Couldn’t be easier…

    The temperature between 40 degrees and 140 degrees is listed by the restaurant industry as the Deadly 100 Zone. This is where bacteria grows freely. Put the saved stock into a canning jar, which has been washed and rinsed with very hot water to preheat it. Then cap it and put it in the refrigerator immediately. The contents should keep for at least two weeks, but usually longer.

    When I steam or boil something… I let the water cool and use it to water my plants>>>
