Don't throw those lobster bodies away... make lobster stock!

When you eat fresh Maine lobster it is important to get every last morsel of meat because depending upon your location, you may have spent a pretty penny to get it.  We will have to discuss where you buy your seafood at another point but for now- what to do with the shells and body so they are not going to waste!?  Make lobster stock!


You'll need:

lobster bodies  (The more the merrier!)

roughly chopped veggies: carrots, onions, celery, garlic (homegrown and local of course!)

bouquet garni of rosemary & thyme (about 4-5 sprigs each)

3-4 Tablespoons of tomato paste

Enough water to cover all of the ingredients (about 10-12 cups)

Add ingredients to a pot, bring to a boil, simmer for about 2 hours.

Can be frozen for up to three months!
