quick tip freeze stock and pesto in ice cube trays

It seems like I often have sauces, pesto, broth, or stock leftover after a meal, but I hate throwing them away. I don’t necessarily need the leftovers at the moment, but when I make another meal with the ingredients, it’s nice to reuse the leftovers.

My favorite way to keep them is to freeze the ingredients in ice cube trays or muffin tins. Silicone trays will make it easier to pop them out when frozen. Then, store them in a freezer in a Ziploc bag. This way I have fresh and proportioned sauces or broth ready when I need them!

      I’ve done the same with a couple of eggs that are going to go unused close to their expiration date. I crack, lightly mix the eggs and put in a pinch of salt. Then freeze the same way in ice cube trays, to be used for baking later.

      Roast drippings are also good to collect & freeze, if they aren’t used completely with your meal…. makes excellent flavoring for bean soups later on. I also save all the organic carrot, onion and garlic peels & ends in a ziploc in the freezer. It all adds up. so that when I crockpot chicken, I can pour in that freezer bag for added flavor — and thus creating more stock! It’s so nice to have that aspect of “prep” already done. Bread ends become toasted breadcrumbs that I also freeze & is ready to add to meatloaf.

      I fill ice trays with pomegranite juice and add the frozen treats to my green tea in the summer. It’s a great treat, and a way to enjoy the pom flavor w/a little less expense!
