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!
