Recipes | Vegetable Stock

I love a good stock. I try and keep a batch of homemade on hand at all times, especially during the cooler months. Although it’s June, we’ve had a slow warm up this year so I’m still using stock as base for soups and sauces often. ++ We have so many veggies on their way in the garden, my mouth is watering just thinking about what’s to come. This is an easy, aromatic and very useful recipe. For me, it’s usually a salvage the veg vibe with my almost gone vegetables. Enjoy!
