  inch. Put these with 2 quarts of cold water in a large nonreactive
  pot with no more than six different herbs. Bring to a boil over high
  heat, then lower the heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. Strain and
  use as is or concentarte the flavor by simmering to the desired
  strength (by taste).
  
  When using dried herbs, lessen quantities by one-half to two-thirds
  but always add *to taste*
  
  vegetable:      carrots, celery, potatoes, winter squash, summer
  squash, chard, kale, tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, lettuce, green
  beans, celeriac

      basil, bay, borage, garlic, garlic chives, hyssop, lovage,
  morjoram, oregano, parsley, sage, savory, thyme spices (limit 2)
