A nice easy way to make a vegetable broth. This freezes well and is a nice base for many soup recipes.

This makes a lovely rich-tasting broth. I used a mixture of dried mushrooms and button mushrooms. The remainder of ingredients were as listed. I love the color that the onions skins imparts to the broth (at least I think it's from the skins). Made for Crock Pot and Rice Cooker Game in KK's forum.
