Vegetable Stock

This has been a year of thrift and I've had to economise in the kitchen.  After buying some vegetable stock for a soup, I decided that it would be cheaper to make my own.

I discovered this recipe.  What was interesting was the suggestion that perfectly good vegetable stock can be made with the waste vegetable scraps that most people throw away.  I didn't have enough scraps to make stock this time, but from now on, I'm going to save them, put them in the freezer and make stock once I have a bag full of scraps.  

This stock is the base for a warming winter soup and makes twice the amount required, so I have a bag left over, which I can freeze for another time.
