Potassium broths are wonderful for quickly increasing the mineral absorption of the body.  They are useful for athletes during extreme conditioning, for those who are weak and recovering from illness or to help the system during cleansing and fasting.  Leg cramps?  Have a cup of potassium broth in the evening before bed.  Nursing or just had a baby?  This broth is fabulous to help mom recover strength and promote breast milk production. The following is a general guideline, or a base.  I often find myself tossing in other vegetables that have been just hanging out in the fridge from leeks to spinach to the odd mushroom or two.   I will also add a teaspoon or so of miso for additional protein and nutrients.

If I am making the broth for a fast or cleanse I don’t usually peel any of the vegetables and leave the tops on the carrots and beets.  These vegetables I compost.  If desired, you can peel the onions, garlic and beets and then strain out the vegetables after the broth is made for use in other dishes.
