With winter around the corner, tis the season for soup and fine broth. The stereotype around making homemade broth is that the recipes don’t work. The broth turns out watered down and takes all day to make. Say no more! Society19 is here for your culinary needs, here are 4 recipes to make beautiful homemade flavorful broth. 

Chicken Broth
Chicken broth is a fast easy way to add wonderful flavor.

1. Chicken Broth

Chicken broth is one of the most widely used broths in the cooking world. This broth adds that beautiful salty flavor to any stew or soup. It’s a flavorful canvas for any ingredients that you care to add to it. This broth is relatively cheap to make and requires little supervision. And while there a wide variety of recipes out there for this, I have found this one to be the easiest and the most cost effective.  Make some chicken broth and wait as your house is filled with the salty sweet smell of chicken . Let’s get started. 

Ingredients 

  • 1 leftover rotisserie chicken
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper ( if you like that extra kick) 
  • 6 cups water

Directions

Take a large pot and add your 6 cups of water on medium low heat. Add your salt and pepper and wait until water is at a rolling boil. While you’re waiting, take out your rotisserie chicken and bring it up to room temperature. Once water is at a rolling boil, carefully add your chicken. Don’t worry about the white foam and build up on the surface of the water, it is normal. It’s the fats of the chicken cooking out into your beautiful broth. Proceed to add your garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Add a lid over your chicken mixture and let cook for 6 hours. Make sure you’re checking on it every hour. With a spoon, carefully scrape off all that excessive fat at the top every hour. You will notice that meat will begin to float around in the chicken. That’s okay! We are going to strain all of it. If your broth is looking a little low, carefully add water. You don’t want the waterline to get below the chicken! At the final hour, add your vegetables. This will ensure they still have some crunch. After the 6 hours are up, turn off the stove and let cool slightly. Then, drain the broth into a fine colander, making sure all that excess meat and fat is not in your broth. Add garnishes and enjoy your beautiful rich chicken broth.

While some may think bone broth is a little off putting, the flavor is pure magic. It is a rich salty flavor that is unmatched to any broth. These recipes can be pricey, mainly due to buying the bones. Yet while it can be a little expensive to make, the rich flavor is well worth it.

  •  1 handful bay leaves
  • ⅓ cup black peppercorns

Divide your bones into two large pots and submerge in cold water. Bring the pots to a boil on high heat and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Drain carefully and rinse with water. Preheat your oven to 450F. Take your bones and veggies and arrange in a baking dish. You don’t want to pile things on top of each other. Make everything an even layer so it all cooks evenly. Place in the oven and roast for 30 minutes before gently tossing them. Then, roast them for another 30 minutes. Place the two pots back on the stove and fill with cold water, vinegar and your seasoning. Approximately 12 cups of water to be exact. Cover the pot with a tight lid and bring to a gentle boil. Cook on low for 24 to 48 hours. Carefully drain your broth. Serve and enjoy.
