Easy Slow Cooker Vegetable Broth
- 1 gallon freezer bagful of vegetable scraps
(I collect these from all my chopped vegetables over about a month. Onion ends, carrot stubs, kale stems, broccoli stalks, all make awesome broth.)
- 1 tablespoon House seasoning
(4 parts kosher salt, 1 part black pepper, 1 part garlic powder)
- Spices of choice
(I usually use fresh or dried Italian seasoning)
- 6-8 cups water.
Place all ingredients in 4 to 6 quart slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 8 hours. Allow to cool just enough to handle the crock.
Strain broth through a sieve or cheesecloth and compost or discard scraps.
Pour hot liquid into four pint canning jars and can either in a water or pressure canner.
Results: This is so easy to make and then if you can it, you have healthy vegetable broth for your soups and meals and it’s ready whenever you need it. This is a must-have stocked item for your pantry! So frugal and so healthy = a win in our household!
