Start with a large heavy stockpot

Add water and bring to a boil  

Skim off any scum that rises to the top - occasionally do this through the cooking process 

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1-4 hours 

Check regularly and add water if you are losing water volume during cooking 
10-15 min before finishing your stock add parsley 

Salt and pepper to taste 

When broth is complete - strain the stock into another pot or large bowl 

You can store broth in glass mason jars in the refrigerator or freezer - you can season the broth before or after storing.

This vegetable mineral broth is full of antioxidants, phytochemicals, electrolytes and vitamins.  It is a hydrating, mineral-rich tea. Drink it throughout the day or if you need a quick pick me up in the afternoon.  Use it as the base for cooked grains to increase the mineral density. Use as the base in any soup. Enjoy!
