The Scrap Bowl

To keep your counters clear while you cook, try keeping a scrap bowl handy. It saves you many trips to the garbage. 
Toss anything unusable in the scrap bowl: veggie tops and stems, peelings, rotten spots, etc.
After you finish cooking, toss the whole lot into the garbage/compost or rinse and add to your stock bag (which we'll talk about later).
