Making your own vegetable broth

Ashley12 | Jun 8, 201008:15 PM     8

I have been saving vegetable trimmings in my freezer for about a month in hopes of making a vegetable broth with them. I make chicken stock all of the time and I am assuming that the process is similar. Right now I am planning on sauteing some onions and garlic then adding the frozen vegetable trimmings with salt,pepper, and thyme. After the vegetables are cooked, add cold water and simmer. I am not sure how long to simmer them for or if I am missing a step. Looking for suggestions on how to make this a great broth and any ideas on what to do with it! Thank you all :)
