wonderful! thank you for sharing.
Montana this is fantabulous. The pot is simmering as I type and as it is a fall weather day here I may add in some chicken chunks to the broth I do not freeze for dinner tonight. I did use fresh herbs as I grow them in the garden. I doubled fresh amounts for dry. Kept pepper the same and did not add salt (used substitute) or mushrooms (dietary restrictions). I will save this in my keepers. I like that the veggies are not tossed out and they are incorporated back into the broth. I also plan to use your suggestion for chowder as football season is on us. Thank you for such an easy and versatile recipe. I cannot wait to make rice with a frozen cube. Made for Preserving Summer Memories.
