This is what I have been doing for hours this morning. Dicing, dicing and more dicing. I am making the shelter a huge pot of vegetable barley soup tomorrow.
Yesterday I made the stock with all of the peels and trimmings from all of the veggies.
After simmering for hours, I had about 20 quarts of rich vegetable stock.
I am using celery, carrots, fennel, parsnips, turnips and onions. I like to have all the vegetables cut the same size cubes.
Before beginning the soup, I am browning all of the diced veggies until nice and caramelized. I won't actually make the soup until tomorrow so I will show the rest then. It takes a long time to make this much soup!
