Apple Soup Stock

Ingredients: 
  • 8 medium apples, cut into quarters, seeds removed
  • 2 large onions, cut into quarters
  • 4 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces 
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces 
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil 
  • 6 sprigs parsley 
  • 1 small bunch thyme 
  • 10 peppercorns 
  • 5 coriander seeds 
  • 2 pieces of cinnamon stick, about 2 inches each 
  • 3 cups apple cider 
 
Instructions
 
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a roasting pan, toss the apples, onions, celery and carrots with oil and roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes until the vegetables are well browned.
  2. Remove the vegetables from the oven to a stockpot. Add a cup of water to the roasting pan. Using a spatula, loosen the bits of vegetables from the bottom of the pan. Add these bits, along with their juices, to the stockpot. Add the remaining ingredients, plus about a gallon of water. Bring the stock to a simmer over medium heat. Adjust the heat to keep the stock at a simmer, partially covered. Simmer for 6 to 8 hours — don’t allow it to boil. Strain and discard the vegetables. Let cool, and then refrigerate or freeze the stock. Makes about a gallon.
