Ingredients

1/4 c
parsnip, chopped (no need to peel)
1/2 c
carrot, chopped (no need to peel)
1 large
yellow onion, chopped
1 large
potato, coarsely chopped (no need to peel-just wash)
1 tsp
salt
6
whole black peppercorns
1 Tbsp
parsley, copped (stems included)
1
bay leaf
3 stalk(s)
celery, chopped
2 lb
fish trimmings (heads, bones, etc)
4 qt
cold water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all ingredients in a 6 quart stock pot. Bring to a boil, partially cover the pot, turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes.
2
Strain the stock through a fine sieve into a large bowl, pressing down hard on the vegetables and fish trimmings with the back of a spoon to extract their juices. Discard solids.
3
Wash the pot and return the strained stock to it. Reduce the stock to about 6 cups by boiling it rapidly, uncovered, for about 20 minutes.
4
Restrain through a fine sieve or through a double thickness of cheesecloth lining a regular sieve.
5
Use for soup or freeze for future use.
