What Is Stock?
Stock is a rich, savory liquid prepared by simmering bones and vegetables in water for hours with herbs and spices until the flavor is extracted. Stock derives its flavor primarily from the protein, not from heavy sodium. As a result, stock is usually a healthier product, delivering a richer mouth feel and deeper flavor than broth.
Stock is a versatile culinary tool that can deliver taste to any number of dishes. Darker in color and more concentrated in flavor than broth, it’s ideal for use in soups, rice, sauces and more. Customize it to your preference by adding salt and seasonings as needed.
Any recipe calling for salt may be replaced with the stock base. This allows the overall salt content of the dish to be lowered while adding more flavor. Some typical uses are soups, sous vides, gravies, sauces, casseroles, marinades, rissotos, slow cooking, savory pies, rice dishes and stuffings.
