    Default Kitchen Basics

    Oddly, I have comparison tasted a lot of stocks for my job.

    I find that Kitchen Basics tastes closest to homemade for me--less salt and more flavor than the others.

    Haven't tried Better than Boullion as I typically find cubes to be mostly salt.

    Good luck!

    BTB is a mostly organic and all natural paste, not a cube
    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

    I use the Knorr's Homestyle stock concentrate. Comes in little plastic pots. It's MUCH better than Bouillion cubes. I haven't used those in years.

    BTW, folks, until the gold and silver prices started to crash, NOTHING was better than Bullion.

    Another BTB fan here. Is it as good as homemade stock? Well, no. It's probably not as good as some of the prepackaged stocks, but is definitely less expensive. As a convenience food, it's great.

    However, some varieties contain MSG if you're worried about that, and it *is* quite salty... I would recommend adding no more salt to the recipe if you're using BTB.

    Sorry, just could NOT resist.

    Yes, Better Than Bouillon is very good. I don't really care for the chicken, but the beef is awesome.

    Kitchen Basics stocks are good, too. The closest I've found to home-made.

    Another vote for Kitchen Basics. Also, it got a thumbs up recently from the Nutrition Action Network. Uncommon for one of their Thumbs Up products to actually taste really good too!
    I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Ok, I am late to this. I cook ALOT.

    I also use Better Than Boullion. It is the BEST.

    The cubed stuff has a baking soda / asprin taste. These days if you drop the cube in water it foams like alka selzter, ick!

    I will be making some beef stock here soon. Going to freeze and use when I need it. I am still saving my chicken bones, skin, wing tips, necks, etc for chicken broth / soup. I put in a ziplock and freeze, when I get enough, I make soup. I also put the onion pieces, celery pieces, carrot pieces in the bag to freeze.

    The closer you are to fake food (store bought, prepackaged stuff, ready to eat) the lesser your taste buds are, and you will not notice when it is real from scratch. This is why I do not cook for anybody else these days besides my husband. And, yes, I can cook very well. too much ready to eat stuff has ruined people's palettes. Sad.

    Better than Bouillon tastes far better than my own attempts at home-made stock. The ham and beef in particular are lovely.

    I get the low sodium Better Than Bullion in both chicken and vegetable either in the organic or regular.
    I have not used the beef, I am not a big red meat eater.
