Not every fruit peel or veggie stem needs to be tossed! Find out which ones are edible.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, approximately 30 to 40 percent of the American food supply is wasted each year. Before you toss those edible leaves, stems, and peels, or leave them in the compost bin, find out how you can cook with them and get more nutritional bang for your buck.
Make Corn Stock
A delicious summer staple, corn on the cob is practically required at any backyard cookout but before you throw out those stringy cobs, add them to a pot and boil up a fresh corn stock. Use immediately in a seafood boil or as you would any vegetable stock. If you need to save it, store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
