Vegetable stock can be made from carrots, onions, sometimes just a touch of burdock, and other
naturally sweet vegetables. It may also be made from wilted vegetables or vegetable parts that are
not ordinarily eaten. These include cabbage hearts, pea pods, cornhusks, vegetable cores, or tough
outer leaves. Avoid greens that lend a bitter taste, such as carrot tops, spinach, or Swiss chard.
Refrigerate these odds and ends in a container and when enough have accumulated, make a stock.
