2 med leeks, chopped
4 onions, chopped
6 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 sm bunch celery, chopped
1 sm bunch parsley, chopped
3 bay leaves
2 tsp dried leaf marjoram
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 1/2 gal cold water


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large stock pot, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 1 hour, skimming off any foam that comes to the surface. Do not stir, and do not allow to boil again. Let stock cool slightly for easy handling.

  2. Line a kitchen strainer or colander with double-thickness cheesecloth and set over a large bowl or pot in the kitchen sink. Strain stock through cheesecloth, pouring slowly and steadily so as not to stir up sediments. Discard the dregs. Cool.

  3. Refrigerate or store in the freezer in small portions.
