Making Vegetable Broth

This week I tried my hand at making vegetable broth!

via GIPHY

I’m not a big fan of tomato based vegetable broths so when I found a blog about saving your vegetable scraps to make your own broth I thought it was worth a try. Being a vegetarian it didn’t take long for the scraps to add up. I kept them in the freezer and just added to the bag as I was cooking.

In the scraps, there were onion peels, the inside of peppers, the ends and middle of garlic cloves, dill stems, celery, parsley, thyme and rosemary stems, Jalapeno gits, Bok Choy ends. Pretty Much anything I used in the kitchen. I wrapped the frozen lump of vegetable into cheesecloth and boiled them.

I read somewhere for the best flavour to boil for an hour. Which I did and I simmered for a couple hours. I also ended up adding salt…Because I’m a salt junky.

While boiling the stock I also multi-tasked and boiled my jars and lids. Sterilize, Sterilize, Sterilize. As you can see I’m a huge supporter of Classico because you can reuse their jars. However, you have to be sure they seal. I have had lids that the rubber melts off.

 

Setting everything aside that was sterilized I didn’t realise exactly how much broth I boiled so I ended up having to do a couple rounds of jar sterilization to keep up.

As the broth became ready I also got the lids ready to seal. Remember to stir to let the bubbles out and wipe the top of the jars to make the seal.

With both elements going it got quite warm in the kitchen. It of course only got worse when I added the pressure canner.

The pot I made the broth in after jarring was then washed out and became the pot that I pressure canned in. I filled it with various different sizes of jars. I cooked at 15 pounds (Im sure I could have done 10) for 30 minutes.

I ended up cooking 4 batches. In between, I stored all of the broth in the jars in my kitchen sink in hot water. Sometimes if the liquid gets cold the jars will shatter in the pressure cooker.

It took me a few days to complete. The broth turned out delicious. My house smells great and I have enough broth to last me for a year!

Kristen’s Cultures



Nature’s Best Market is now carrying Kristen’s Cultures’ spicy Kombucha Mustard!

And they have samples. 😋

‘prō·bī·ô·tics:
friendly, gut-healing bacteria and yeast which:
-fight off the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast
-promote a healthy digestive system
-strengthen the immune system
-heal the gut by restoring gut flora (especially important after taking antibiotics!)

-detoxify your body, ridding it of toxins
-prevent and treat diseases

Fermented foods/drinks are superior to probiotic pills because they:

-cost less: generally, 1-2 bites/sips contain as many probiotics as a whole pill

-are more easily assimilated into your body because of their Real Food form

-contain plenty of vitamins, enzymes and healing acids as well as probiotics

Did you know that your body actually contains more bacterial cells than it does human cells?  Amazing!

Your gut contains about 3lb of bacterial cells, all of which are extremely important to your body’s overall physical, mental and emotional well-being!

According to Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, “All disease begins in the gut.”

You need tons of probiotics to keep your immune system strong and able to fight off intruders, especially after taking antibiotics (which kill the good along with the bad).

Not only do probiotics balance out your gut, but they also help to detoxify your body, getting rid of toxins that have built up over the years, and help you to heal from various ailments with their amazing enzymes, healing acids and food-based vitamins.

Fermented foods/drinks are not only a delicious way to get probiotics into your body, but they are also cheaper and more readily assimilated into your body than probiotic pills are, because of their Real Food form.

Fermented foods/drinks are superior to probiotic pills because they:

-cost less: generally, 1-2 bites/sips contain as many probiotics as a whole pill

-are more easily assimilated into your body because of their Real Food form

-contain plenty of vitamins, enzymes and healing acids as well as probiotics

🍔 This is a simple, delicious way to incorporate important probiotics into your diet! Spread this old-style dijon on to your sandwich, burger, or pair with meat/fish. 🥪

Not only will your taste buds fall in love, but because your gut health affects your overall health, this mustard will help your immune system, digestion and much more. (Check out my website and Google to learn about the amazing benefits of probiotics.)

Brussel Sprouts Chips- Gluten Free Regina

Move over Kale chips, hello Brussels Sprouts Chips!

For anyone that has tried kale chip after kale chip only to be disappointed by how bitter, chewy and kale-y they were (ME!), I promise these are 1,000 times better … if you like brussels sprouts. Because they do taste like the mini green buds, in a totally awesome toasted way. At this point, isn’t everyone pro-Brussels Sprouts? The days of boiling them to mush are long gone. (We hope!)

The chips get really crispy—so much so that you can hear the crunch—really quickly. It’s the taking apart of the sprouts that is a little tedious. Start by cutting off the stem-side end of each brussels sprouts. The tougher outer leaves will naturally fall off, but the inner leaves take more time to pull apart. Don’t go crazy—leave the round center that remains and roast it too! It’s not a chip, but it’s so small that it’ll crisp up just fine.

Flavor-wise, olive oil, salt and pepper are all you need. But if you’ve got a block of Parmesan, you better believe that’s getting grated on top. Make it rain! As always, the more parm, the better.

So much better than kale chips.

TOTAL TIME:
PREP:
COOK:
LEVEL: EASY
YIELD: 4 SERVINGS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts
  • 1-2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c. finely grated Parmesan, plus more for serving (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut off the stem end of each Brussels sprout. Using your hands, pick off as many leaves from the bud as you can. The tough outer leaves should fall off naturally.
  3. Transfer leaves to a large rimmed baking sheet. Toss with olive oil until each piece is evenly coated on both sides. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread the Brussels sprouts evenly in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the Brussels sprouts are crispy and have darkened. (They’ll continue to crisp as they cool.)
  5. Sprinkle with more Parmesan, if desired. Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Craving Pumpkin Spice?


pumpkin-spice-pancakes

Pumpkin spice pancakes with caramel and pecan sauce from the Breakfast Bistro- Thank you!

 

The fall season joke is always about how pumpkin spice is overused in baking, unfortunately, with Celiac Disease you don’t get to experience it as much. You don’t realize how much you miss it until you can’t have it. Terrific if you have a sweet tooth because these pumpkin spice pancakes are covered in a caramel drizzle sauce and sprinkled with pecans.

It’s not very often we get seasonal breakfast food so definitely suggest these pancakes!
