Directions

Pick a seasoning option. Add seasonings and all remaining ingredients to a 6-quart slow cooker. Fill the slow cooker to the top with water so everything is covered as much as possible. Cover and cook on low for 12 hours. Strain and transfer to sealable containers. Refrigerate and use within a couple of weeks, or freeze and use with a few months.
