    I cut my kale stems into one inch pieces before freezing them. When I run low on greens I might eat a big plate of a dish I call "Stems": steamed, then sautéed in ginger and garlic, kale and collard stems. Sometimes I add a handful of stems to a green smoothie. When I had the use of a food processor, I pulverized them and used the green powdery mash in homemade protein bars. It was an interesting flavor, not unfamiliar but a little misplaced. What do you think you might do with your stems?

    I do that, too. I save my vegetable scraps in the freezer and the bits of water I used to steam vegetables with, saved also in the freezer. When I've got enough to fill my stock pot, I simmer it for no more than 30-45 minutes. It gets bitter otherwise. I use a colander and a wooden spoon to strain and then press the liquid stock out of the vegetable scraps. Oh. I add some spice. I never use cruciferous vegetables for stock. They make everything bitter. Speaking of beets, if you add beet peels, stalks, and scraps, your stock will be red! It's exciting.

    P.S. Thanks for telling me that she peeled her onions and garlic. I was assuming that she didn't. I was imagining....

    So subversive! To make a soup with whole all. Do I dare try? I thought I was intrepid but in this instance I feel pretty wimpy. I wanna try! You did it! I'm so impressed. And you are a real cook, too. But garlic and onions whole? And only an immersion blender to make it all palatable at the end? I'm so good at concocting culinary disasters. But not you. You experiment and then reap the rewards of delicious inventions. Okay. I will try.

    Perhaps a heron family will take up residence at Sapsucker Pond this spring.
