Thanksgiving is time to ...

Nov 26, 2010

Thanksgiving is a good time for me to take stock of the last year and to be thankful for all that I have.  Its also the time of year when there isn't much happening in my garden due to cold temperatures and snow, so I finally get around to those things that have been waiting like jarring dry herbs and taking inventory of my seeds.

Its also time to Make Stock.  Its perfect timing and around here since I have pulled out the last of the fall garden, have some stored tomatoes getting soft, and have turkey bones to put to work.

We make 2 batches of stock, turkey and vegetable only because they do taste different and sometimes we like to keep things totally vegetarian.  I am aware that sometimes the process of making stock can be intimidating, but its really simple and worth the small amount of time and effort.  I will post both recipes for vegetable stock and for turkey stock in the recipe section.

Around here, these stocks will be the bases for soups, pot pies, and risotos all winter long and will pair perfectly with some of our canned and frozen goods.

Happy cooking.
