Other Important Things

Be sure to start with cold water, as you want to slowly extract the flavor out of the vegetables as they heat up. You’ll also want to use a large, wide pot, so that there is as much surface area as possible for the vegetables to spread across while still being well-covered by water. When the stock is finished, strain and store it in sealable jars or containers and let cool completely. Store in the freezer until ready to use.
