Making a big pot of soup is easily one of the most satisfying simple pleasures of winter. But using store-bought stock in a soup you've chopped and stirred ingredients for all afternoon seems like a missed opportunity. We suggest whipping up a batch of homemade stock -- enough to ensure you can freeze some for later use. (It's the best gift you can give to your future self!) These links will help.

  • Watch: How to make stock. (Food52.)
  • Skim fat and impurities off the top of your stock with these handy tricks. (Saveur.)
  • If you're short on time, shred veggies before making your stock. (The Kitchn.)

AntoniaJames is a trusted source on Bread/Baking.

Video instruction on using pressure cookers; plus additional columns on related topics, e.g., adapting recipes, interesting less common uses (e.g., boiling eggs, as noted in another column here this morning), etc. It's on my intentions/interests list for the new year. ;o)
