Frugal Fridays: Veggie Broth

Veggie Broth


I hate paying for broth. It’s a real money waster. You are really paying for flavored water, but then some would say I don’t have time to make my own.

I collected a days worth of cut ends or nearly dead fresh veggies & threw them in the crock pot. The first time I did it on the stove & got some lightly colored golden broth. But the crock got more from the veggies. It’s a nice dark gold like you buy from the store. I threw them in the crock w/ a bunch of salt, water, and cooked on low for 8 hours.

I have never felt so frugal in all my life. I can’t wait to grab my tasty veggie broth that is full of flavor. It will be tasty. I have done my grandma’s proud!



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
