Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put everything into a large pot and bring to a boil; then cover and reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Check the seasoning; add more salt and pepper, if needed; then strain and refrigerate for 24 hours or freeze until needed.
  3. TIP: if you like adding starchy root vegetables to your stock mixture, please remember that the more you add, the cloudier your stock will become.
