"stocks or broths" from odd items
Okay I know it sounds crazy....but heck in these economic times it gets the creative juices flowing so to speak. I am cutting up some pie pumpkins (purchased at my local farmer's market ) for the oven. I'm saving the seeds to eat and then I start to think why couldn't I simmer the "gut's", strain it and add that to my veggie stock? Must be some nutrition in that I would think. Why not extract what you can from what you have instead of throwing it away? Has any one else tried anything unusual that has worked?
