Cooking Instructions Home Made Vegetable Broth
Cut all vegetables in cubes or small pieces. You can peel onions and garlic but you don’t have to.
Heat oil, brown vegetable briefly.
Cut thyme and parsley in pieces, add to veggies. Saute for 1 min.
Add water, bring to a brief boil. Reduce heat. Remove foam with a ladle.
If no more foam is occurring add the spices, bay leaves, cloves.
Let simmer for 60 min.
Pour the broth through a sieve, press the cooked vegetable through the sieve as well (it should be a fine sieve). The broth can cook a little longer to get more flavorful.
Fill the broth into jars and keep them in the fridge (good for 2-3 weeks). Or freeze the broth (good for 6 months in the freezer), use ice cubes containers for small portions.
