Thrifty Thursday - Onion Peelings Get a Second Life Get a Second Life
I keep a container in the freezer in which I put onion and carrot peelings, and leftover bits of vegetables and chicken or beef pan drippings to make broth. When the last of the ketchup is gone and before throwing the bottle out, I add 1-2 Tbsp of hot water, cap and shake well. I add this to the freezer container, as well. Once the container is full, I defrost, simmer an hour or so and strain. Works great as a soup base or anything calling for broth.
