How to make it
If a liquid stock is desired:
- Rough cut all vegetables, and quarter as directed in the ingredients.
- Leave leafy ingredients intact.
- Combine everything in a large stock pot and boil, covered, for 1 hour.
- Strain the stock in a strong colander or wire strainer and press the solids to release as much liquid as possible and discard.
- Freeze for up to 6 months, or jar for pantry storage.
If a thicker stock is desired:
- Strain stock and reserve the carrots, turnip, parsnips, garlic, onion and tomatoes.
- Press the remaining solids to release as much liquid as possible and discard.
- Process the reserved vegetables through a food mill and add back to the liquid stock.
- Note: The solids will settle to the bottom when the stock sits, so be sure to mix it up when using.
