    I peel my onion and chop it in half, leave about 4-5 garlic cloves whole and chop two carrots and a couple of stalks of celery in half. I've never added broccoli but sometimes I'll halve a leek and chuck it in.
    And yep, the carcass from a whole roast chook would be perfect.
    I don't have a slow cooker but yeah, I would think 8 hours would be perfect.
