Hi. Love your shows and recipes. I read in Moosewood that you can make vegetable stock with leftover skins and innards, and love to so that for bean-cooking liquid. But I realized that Moosewood was written, like 200 years ago, before there was an awareness of pesticides and other contaminants. What's your opinion? Is it ok to make stock out of various non-organic vegetables?

Hi Barb, You can make soup stock out of just about anything. Onion skins makes for a rather dark-colored stock however. I do believe it is better to use organic vegetables, but especially avoiding the dirty dozen (from the Environmental Working Group)
