Make Your Own Vegetable Broth

Vegetable broth is super easy to make it home and tastes much better than any powdered mix.

Simply collect your vegetable waste such as parsnip, kohlrabi, or carrot peels, the leaves from broccoli or cauliflower, the ends of root vegetables or herbal stalks, and a few onion peels (avoid adding too much onion or otherwise the broth becomes bitter). Wash and dry the peels and collect enough scraps until you have enough to fill a gallon sized Ziploc bag. 

To get started first boil the vegetable scraps with salt, water, peppercorns, bay leaf, juniper berries and 1-2 cloves. After you have brought everything to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for a good 20 minutes. Then let everything steep for another 15 minutes, season, pour through a sieve, let it cool and freeze portions. This way you always have homemade vegetable broth in the freezer for whenever the need arises.
