Carrots, raw, 6 medium (remove)
2 Onions, raw, 2 medium
1 Leeks, 1 leek
1 Bunch of Celery
2 Sweet Potato 5" long
Garlic, 6 cloves
1/2 Bunch Parsley
Black Peppercorn 1 Teaspoon
Whole Allspice 1/2 tsp
1 Kombu- 8-inch (dried seaweed)
2 Bay Leaf
8 Filter, Distilled or Spring Water
Salt to taste (after cooking)
Cheesecloth or Stainer
Spice Bag (optional)
Bring to boil. Reduce heat and put lid on pot. Simmer for 2 hours. Possible vegetables will set above the water. that is okay. The vegetables will shrink while shimmering. Just make sure to stir periodically. As the vegetables cook water could evaporate add water as needed.
Turn off burner and let pot cool over burner. Once cool use strainer or cheesecloth to strain broth from pulp. You can discard pulp. Enjoy your broth.
Discarding pulp means you do not have peel any vegetable.
Consuming pulp I recommend placing bay leaf, black peppercorn and whole allspice into spice bag. Remove bag before straining.
Serving Size: 12- 1 Cup
