  • 2 large yellow onions, diced
  • 4 large carrots, diced
  • 4 large celery ribs, diced
  • 8 crushed medium cloves garlic
  • 2 large sprigs parsley

  • Lower heat, maintaining a very gentle simmer, and cook for 1 hour 30 minutes.
  • Strain stock through a fine-mesh strainer, let cool, then transfer to containers and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 6 hours.
  • Skim off and remove any fat and scum on the surface. Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 6 months.
