Want to save money and stretch your food while you are stuck at home self-isolating? We are all looking to stretch out the coronavirus covid19 rations. The best way to conserve some cashola and to stretch that food out is to turn a little bit of something into a whole lot of broth or soup. You can make broth from a small amount of ingredients. Broth can help you stretch out your food rations over a long period of time. Have a tight budget? Then consider using these bottom of the bin items to make a delightful broth (video below).

Now a very important thing to note is that we are not making fancy-pants “I’ve got a culinary degree and I know how to use it” broth! This broth is all about rescuing items you might have thrown in the garbage and – instead – creating something magical and delicious from those used bits.

What Should You Use to Make Broth?

You should use whatever you have – I have Rotisserie chicken bones and old turkey bones. You can use any bones you have available. If you want to make a vegan broth you can use all vegetables and skip past the bones entirely. The choice is purely based on whatever you have in your house RIGHT NOW. Don’t season your chicken stock with salt. Instead season whenever you use the broth in a recipe so you do not double salt.

  • Chicken, beef, pork, or lamb bones (optional)
  • Vegetables [whatever you have] – raw carrots, celery, and onions with skin on
  • Peppercorns (optional)


  1. Roast bones at 425 F or 218 C for 45 minutes
  2. Rough chop celery, carrots, onions
  3. Add peppercorns (optional)
  4. Cover all the ingredients in a large stock pot with water
  5. Put on to boil, then low simmer 2 to 4 hours
  6. Take a spoon and remove scum from the top of the pot
  7. Add fresh herbs THEN if you like but DO NOT SEASON WITH SALT
  8. Remove bones and vegetables and toss out, then cool and strain broth

This is the most beautiful delicious broth ever made from a bunch of stuff that was going in the bin. This broth can be the foundation to truly stretch out your food. You can freeze it like I have done below. Then heat it up on the stove or the crockpot for lots of amazing recipes. From this foundation you can make soups, add to ground meat mixtures, and add flavor to casseroles and more. This easy 8 Cup Whatchoogot Soup Recipe is another money saver.
