Homemade Veggie Broth

Make your own vegetable broth powder.... YES YOU CAN!!

I made the same face you are doing... yes you can make your own MSG and Gluten and anything artificial free broth and it is sooooooo easy

This was a big hit a longer time ago the german recipe board... ther are two versions a oven dried or a wet variety ..it is more like a paste and is kept in the fridge....

The recipe is by a german TV chef from bavaria... he is not only good looking and sweet he is a very good chef Alexander Herrmann

Homemade Broth
Alexander Hermann recipe

1 cup onions, finely chopped
4 Tbsp sea salt

1/2 c carrots
1/4 c leek
1/3 c celeriac
mix with
4 tbsp parsley
1 cup tomato (without green part)
mix very well!!

all ingredients need to be finely chopped and will make about 1 pound.

Put them in a shallow oven dish or roaster and bake over night at 160°F - it will dry out completly and aproxamatly one fifth will be left in the morning. Mix well and fill in a jar.

1 tsp with 1 cup water is the dosage if you like to use it...

You will hardly go back to store kind - it is so much nicer

Vegetable Broth Paste

this is a very old fashioned way to preserve what we call soup greens in Germany... And its having a big comback and with every right as this is healthy and tastes great..

1 lb celeriac
1 lb onions
1 lb parsnip
1 lb fine salt
a big bundle flat parsley
2-3 big tomatoes

carrots, celeriak, onions, parsnip and leek, scrubbed,peeled and then weight. Put in to your kitchen machine or blender or put through a meat grinder! Everything needs to be like baby food finely pureed. Mix thoroughly with salt. Fill in jars and make a nice lable... will keep in a dark and cold place for up to a year.

This is a wonderful gift!!

You use it by the teaspoons in your soups, sauces, salad dressings, to cook vegetables anything that needs a little flavor...
