Preparations

Rinse all the vegetables well, including the kombu. In a 12-quart or larger stockpot, combine all the ingredients together. Fill the pot with the water to 2 inches below the rim, cover, and bring to a boil.

Remove the lid, decrease the heat to low, and simmer, uncovered, for at least 8 to 10 hours. As the broth simmers, some of the water will evaporate; add more if the vegetables begin to peek out. Simmer until the full richness of the vegetables can be tasted. You can also use a slow cooker if you have to leave during the cooking time! 

Strain the broth through a large, coarse-mesh sieve (remember to use a heat-resistant container underneath), then add salt to taste.
