Scrap Box

I'd really like to start composting soon.  But, in the meantime, I found something to do with all those vegetables scraps that end up in the garbage.  You know what I'm talking about--the carrot peels, tomato ends, celery leaves, etc.  They go in a tupperware container in my freezer.  When the box is full, I use the veggie scraps to make broth!  I started my scrap box on Thursday and by the weekend, it was full!!!  So yesterday, I made a broth and then froze into containers.   Next time I want to make soup, I have ready-to-use broth!  You can also use your veggie and fruit scraps in green smoothies, I am told.    My veggie peels still end up in the trash (until I get my compost bin going) but at least, I'm getting use out of them first.

    We've been composting forever but never tried the frozen scraps - what a great idea! Can't wait to see how the broth turns out :)
