One of my eco and budget-friendly habits is making my homemade broth with kitchen scraps (veggie peel & scraps, bones from cooked meats, etc).

Check out the video to learn more about how I do it. Homemade broth is great immune-boosting food and should be consumed regularly if you want to stay healthy.

Items mentioned in the video:

Basic homemade ingredients:

Vegetables: onions, carrots, celery, leek, garlic and any other vegetable (zuchini, bell papers, chili papers, tomato etc)

Meat: any bones, including from previously cooked meats (grill chicken, bbq ribs, turkey or duck etc)

Spices & aromatics: peppercorns, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, star of anise, cloves (as well as thyme, oregano etc).

Also: 1-2 table spoons of salt and 1 table spoon of vinegar.

Cooking time:

  • Vegetable broth: 1-2 hours on stovetop, 40 minutes in pressure cooker
  • Bone broth: 4-12 hours on stovetop, 3-4 hours in pressure cooker
