Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients (except wine, mushrooms and turnips, if not using) in a large pot.
  2. Pour enough water into the vegetables to just cover the ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
  4. Cover pot and slowly simmer for 60 minutes.
  5. Add peppercorns and wine (if using), then simmer an additional 10 minutes uncovered.
  6. Rest broth off heat for 30-60 minutes (I usually let it sit in the pot for about two hours).
  7. Strain into clean container.
  8. Cool broth completely (uncovered).
  9. Refrigerate.
