Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.
Today: A new video from Mario Batali's How To Tuesdays series with a video on how to make stock from scratch.
Stock is alarmingly simple to pick up at the corner grocery store. But homemade stock kicks storebought stock's butt, and that's a fact -- plus it couldn't be easier to make. With just a few roughly chopped vegetables and some chicken carcasses (waste not, want not), you've got a healthy, flavorful, mindbogglingly delicious stock perfect for everything from cold-curing chicken noodle to Thanksgiving gravy.
This is where the folks at Mario Batali come in. We know kitchens can be scary, so we invited them into ours to share their tips and tricks for the home cook. In this video Chef Josh Laurano of Tarry Market shows how making homemade stock is approachable, simple and even fun. So take the plunge and get out your stock pot. We've got your back.
