I love something for nothing recipes so much that I’m considering writing a whole book full of them (okay, not until after I finish writing the current one). What I mean by something for nothing is taking scraps that would otherwise end up in my compost bin and turning them into good, useful pantry items.
Here are a couple of suggestions:
While you’re making the Thanksgiving stuffing, stash the tail ends of celery, onions, parsley stems, etc. in the freezer rather than tossing them. Use them along with the bird carcass to make turkey bone soup stock once the festivities are over.
