Using and Storing Cooking Liquids


Water is often used to cook foods such as noodles.

I have mentioned that the liquids leftover from making roasts may be used to make stocks and broths, but other liquids may also be saved and used when cooking. There really is no need to let these types of liquids go to waste. Consider, if you will, that many people must pay every time they use water from the faucet. And that wasteful use of water is frowned upon, and not good for our Earth. Why not save water, and money, in any way possible.

Which Liquids to Use

Liquids from cooking vegetables, pastas and eggs may be used. When watering plants, you may also use leftover coffee and tea.

Use the Liquids When Watering Plants Inside or Out in the Garden

Use these liquids when watering plants. I let them cool first. The nutrients from the water are good for the plants.

Use the Liquids When Cooking

Use liquids from vegetables, pastas and eggs when making soups, stews and casseroles, among other things. They can be added directly to new recipes, along with any other liquids necessary.

Storing the Liquids

Depending on when a liquid will be used again, store it in the refrigerator or freezer, in a BPA free container.
