  • 4 potatoes well scrubbed, preferably organic
  • 3 carrots peeled, chopped, preferably organic
  • 4 celery stalks chopped, preferably organic
  • 1 bunch parsley preferably organic
  • 4 quarts filtered water
  • 1 Tbl liquid whey


  1. Peel potatoes. Place the potato peelings, carrots and celery in a large pot with the filtered water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add parsley and simmer for 5 more minutes.

  2. Cool and strain the finished potassium broth into glass containers in the refrigerator, reheating small amounts as needed. Add 1 TBL whey to each cup for a big boost to mineral assimilation.

  3. Potassium broth freezes beautifully, so freeze what you will not use in about one week.

Recipe Notes

Potassium broth lasts about 4 days in the refrigerator. Freeze what you will not use in that time.

The cooked and strained veggies are ideally tossed into the compost bin (all the minerals are in the broth!).
