Until my husband developed gout I never gave much thought to making my own broths. But eliminating foods that irritated his gout or were high in purines became my new profession. I had no idea how easy it is to make my own vegetable broth. This way I can control sodium content as well. Now it's the only way I will make it!

Save your vegetable peels and scraps in a baggie or container in the freezer until you are ready to make broth.

Use finished product immediately or freeze for future use.

**You can use any vegetables you like, this is for those on a Low-Purine diet.
