Magic Mineral Broth

  • Yield servings

A great all-around vegetable broth to have on hand.

Ingredients

6 unpeeled carrots, cut into thirds
2 unpeeled yellow onions, cut into chunks
1 leek, white and green parts, cut into thirds
1 bunch celery, including the heart, cut into thirds
4 unpeeled red potatoes, quartered
2 unpeeled Japanese or regular sweet potatoes, quartered
1 unpeeled garnet yam, quartered
5 unpeeled cloves garlic, halved
1/2 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 8-inch strip of kombu (available in the Asian section of most grocery stores)
12 black peppercorns
4 whole allspice or juniper berries
2 bay leaves
8 quarts cold, unfiltered water
1 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Rinse all vegetables well, including kombu. In a 12-quart or larger stockpot, combine the carrots, onions, leek, celery, potatoes, sweet potatoes, yam, garlic parsley, kombu, peppercorns, allspice and bay leaves. Fill the pot with water to 2 inches below the rim, cover, and bring to a boil.
  2. Remove the lid, decrease the heat to low, and simmer, uncovered, for at least 2 hours. As the broth simmers, some of the water will evaporate; add more if the vegetables begin to peek out. Simmer until the full richness of the vegetables can be tasted.
  3. Strain the broth through a large, coarse-mesh sieve (remember to use a heat-resistant container underneath), then add salt to taste. Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating or freezing.
  4. Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days or in the freezer for 4 months.
