    Here's something I never knew before: broth and stock aren't the same thing. According to an article in today's Chicago Tribune broth is made by "... simmering meat, fish or poultry and/or vegetables." Stock is made from bones (roasted or not) with water and/or vegetables.

    The article quotes the Oxford Companion to Food: "A broth... can be eaten as is, whereas a stock... would normally be consumed only as an ingredient in something more complex."

    Basically that is it.

    A broth, made from say chicken, and veggies; many times I remove the chicken and let it cook further with just the bones. So technically I then have a stock.

    Many stocks are made just with bones and a few aromatics.

    There are many interpretation over this and over the years they have almost become interchangeable.

    But yes, A broth can be eaten in a soup with some fresh spinach and chicken. The broth is full of flavor; but stock is a heartier, rich liquid that should be added to dish; and not consumed as is. Stock also get the natural fat from the bones, which turns into that fatty substance on the top which can be sklmed off.

    Honestly, I make a combo when I make mine.

    Crock Pot:
    Add a whole chicken, water, bay leaf, often, just a sprig or two of thyme and parsley, carrots, onion, and celery. Cook until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken and add the bones back in. I usually let it cook another 4-5 hours on low. Strain; and it is done.

    I don't add garlic or any strong herbs because I may want to add this to other dishes that may not include garlic, rosemary, oregano, etc. I try to add just enough for a little flavor, but not to overwhelm the broth, you can always add more seasoning later on when you use the broth.

    So I guess mine is a mix between broth and stock.

    Mine is more broth than stock, too - I do use plenty of bones, but I also like to add the meat. Kind of the best of both worlds -it's flavorful enough to use as is in soup (my "instant" chicken noodle soup - saute some diced onions, carrots & celery, add a pint of homemade stock/broth, and, when boiling, toss in some fresh pasta for a couple of minutes), but it's got enough gelatin from the bones to have plenty of body - especially when it's been refrigerated! icon_wink.gif

    Very timely post for my lazy afternoon in Vermont. I'm presently roasting bones and veggies for a beef stock which will also become demi glace. If you'd like, I'll post my results. Might add my recipe too as I'm winging it here. Cheers!
