Do you make your own veggie, chick or beef broth?
or just buy it?

If you make your own,I am wondering the different styles of doing so? if you care to share..:-)

I have done both. When I make mine, it usually ends up being the base for the soup I do that day. Most often it is chicken and I add the chicken pieces, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, salt, pepper, basil and bay leaf and let that simmer most of the day. Debone the chicken then and add the rest of what I want for the soup.

That I do not know about. I keep the oils created in my soups cuz I do not let the broth cool and separate.

i make my own, too.

when i bake a chicken i plan on eating it for one meal and then making soup.

after it's cooked, i'll remove all the meat from the carcass, crack the leg bones and put the bones in a big stock pot with a carrot, 1/2 an onion, garlic clove, stalk of celery and some salt/pepper and a bay leaf.

i let it simmer ALL day...at least a good 8 hours or so. bring it to a boil and then turn down to Warm and prop the lid up a bit so it doesn't reach a full boil again. i add in more water about 1/2 through - how much depends on how much it's cooked down. i like to have a rich broth (not watered down).

once it's done, i take out the bones, vegy's and bay leaf and i let it cool overnight (ha! never thought to put it outside!!) once it's cooled i skim off the fat and put the broth back into the pot and add in chopped carrots, celery and onion and let them cook until just about done...add in the cooked chicken pieces and continue cooking until the chicken is heated through and the vegy's are done.

i use thin egg noodles...and i cook them seperately and then put in the bowl just before serving...i don't like them to get too overdone.

to make a nice clear broth, use VERY cold water when you fill the pot.

Ummmm.... I never heard of "veggie broth" in a can. (But then again, I don't pay much attention to groceries!) I don't think you'd get much of a nice thick gel stock from simmering veggies, but I would think that the water they're cooked in would be loaded with good vitamins!

(If I'm sounding like I know something about kitchen stuff, it's only an illusion... probably some sort of reflection off the smoked up mirror finish on my microwave door!) grinnnn

college inn makes chicken, turkey, beef and vegetable broths...both regular versions and low fat/low salt types. they also have a few different added flavorings...chicken w/garlic, chicken w/lemon & herb, chicken w/vegy's & herb and beef french onion style.

no, the vegy broth isn't thick..it IS chockful of nutrients tho!

any kind of broth can be used instead of water when cooking rice...adds a bit of flavor and you can match the broth used to the main dish smile
