frugal recipes // diy vegetable stock

A while back I started collecting vegetable scraps for homemade vegetable stock. I finally got around to throwing them into the slow cooker and was rewarded with a lot of stock!

Here's what I saved:
onion skins
carrot ends
green onion pieces

I saved the scraps in an old Zoup plastic soup container in the freezer and popped the contents in the slow cooker with water. I cooked it on high for four hours, strained out the veggies, and poured it into jars once it cooled. I didn't add salt because Kyle has high blood pressure and we can easily salt the dishes in which we add the broth. I realize this recipe isn't exactly a recipe, but it saved me a bit on store-bought, sodium-laden stock!

How do you make your homemade stocks?
