Equipment

  • Cutting Board
  • Stock pot

Ingredients

  • 12 qt Water
  • 2 tbsp Thyme
  • 3 Bay Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Black Peppercorns
  • 6 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 cup Basil
  • 1/2 cup Parsley
  • 1 cup Celery
  • 1 cup Carrot
  • 2 cup White Onion
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Instructions

  • Add all your ingredients to a big stock pot. Some people like to use a sachet for the herbs and spices, but if you do not have any cheese cloth on hand, you can just toss it all in there and strain it later.
  • Add water to the pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a gentle boil and let it go for 30-45 minutes.
  • Once your stock has been on for 45-60 minutes, turn off the stove and let cool. Once the stock is completely cooled down, strain into a separate vessel for later use. Discard veggies.
