Wednesday Quick Tip
You already know that you can make a great broth from chicken or turkey bones, even if you've never actually done it, but did you realize you don't *have* to use the whole vegetables as so many recipes tell you, too? You can use the scraps and have the same good results.
THIS SITE gives stock making instructions, including explaining how to use your scraps instead of whole veggies.
And save your citrus peels, too - lemons, oranges, limes, grapefruit. First, you can make CANDIED CITRUS PEELS out of them. (Hint: if you cut the peels in very narrow strips, they make an extra fancy touch as homemade cake decorations.)
If candied peels aren't your thing, save them anyway if you have a garbage disposal. At night once your kitchen is closed for the evening and the dishes are done, wipe down your sink and toss some peels in the disposal and give it a whirl. It'll fill your kitchen with a nice citrus-y scent.
