Article Excerpt:

I generally make my own vegetable broth from vegetable scraps and trimmings, but recently purchased a quart of store-bought broth in a pinch. Blech! I forgot how weird-tasting store bought vegetable broth is by comparison, especially for the price of an organic broth without creepy stuff in it. I swore I'd never do it again, even in a pinch, and vowed to only make my own vegetable broth from now on.  So, I started collecting all my little vegetable scraps again for my next pot of broth.

The next day I was catching up some reading over at 101 Cookbooks, one of my favorite blogs.  Heidi is so inspiring; her images are beautiful, her cooking seems absolutely effortless and elegant, and I relate strongly to her philosophy on food.  I deeply admire her cookbook Super Natural Cooking, and am excited about her forthcoming cookbook that she is currently working on.   She just seems so cool. I always find her posts inspiring, and somehow, she has this way of posting things that totally click into something I am thinking about, it is like magic.  However, my visit to her site the other day was particularly timely.  Why, you ask?  Because I came across her post for homemade vegetable boullion!  

I flipped out! Why hadn't I ever thought of this?!  It seemed so simple.  Bouillon is just ground of vegetables and spices, so why can't we make our own, right?  Geez.  

I knew I had to try it immediately.
