Dump everything together in a pot. Don't chop it. Don't dice it. Don't do any extra work. If you're missing the herbs, that's fine.
Turn on stove.
Bring to a boil, and then simmer for as many hours as you want. Preferably lots.
If it's too strong, add more water.
If it's too weak, hahahahahahahahah!
When you think it's simmered long enough, take everything out but the liquid. Or if you're really smart (Bellie isn't), just take the liquid out. That's what Nellie does.
