Stocks are actually very easy to prepare. You just toss everything into a big pot, cover, and let it simmer for hours on your stove. If you don’t have all of the ingredients don’t worry, stocks are very forgiving, just use the ingredients that you have on hand. The seaweeds add an abundance of minerals and trace minerals to the stock, which is very beneficial as most people are deplete in minerals. Freeze your stock in widemouthed quart jars for later use.
