Giveaway: Broth & Stock from the Nourished Kitchen

May 31, 2016

Broth & Stock cover - Food in Jars

I learned to make broth from my mom during my childhood, though there was never a point at which she sat me down for a lesson. It was simply something she did and in my way, I watched and absorbed the information. When I had my own kitchen, homemade chicken stock was one of the very first things I cooked.

These pots of homemade broth are something I mostly do by feel, and while I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon, there’s a new book on the topic that I am delighted to welcome into my kitchen. Called Broth & Stock from the Nourished Kitchen and written by Jennifer McGruther, this book offers info on making your own broths and stocks as well as recipes designed to help you make the most of every drop.

The book opens with an introduction that walks you through a brief history of broth (mention of portable broth in this section inspired me to cook two quarts of my own stock down into a single, concentrated cup, so it served me before I got to the first recipe!). From there, we get chapters entitled The Broth Maker’s Kitchen, Master Broths and Stocks, Poultry, Meat, Fish, and Vegetables. It’s a simple and highly useful method of organization.

One of the things that I appreciate about this book is that it’s useful whether you’ve got a whole day or less than an hour to make your stock. What’s more, the recipes for using up the batches of broths and stocks you’ve made are appealing and aren’t limited to just soups and stews (risotto! glazed bok choy! gratins!). It makes me hungry every time I pick it up.

  1. I love making my own stocks in the crockpot, so easy! I haven’t bought stock from the grocery store since I got my pressure canner 3 years ago.

  2. My twins are a year old, and I’ve started feeding them homemade chicken stock pretty regularly, and they love it! It’s even helped keep their immunity up. I want to diversify their palate and this book sounds like just the thing I need! Thank you for the giveaway.

  3. My mother-in-law makes the absolute BEST chicken soup, and she always tells me the secret is in the broth. I think I might need this book to try to out-do her!! 🙂

  4. I love making my own broth. I always hurry to make more when I am down to my last six jars. Would love to try new and different recipes.

  5. I’ve been making turkey broth from the last two Christmas turkey carcasses and canning it. The idea of concentrating it down sounds interesting.

  6. I made my first 24-hour crock pot bone broth this winter and it totally changed my perspective on stocks. Now I understand why people in New York are willing to pay $5 for a cup to sip!

  7. So excited to use my new pressure canner to can stock for the first time. It will free up sooo much freezer space!!

  8. I finally got around to making stock in a crock pot, and now that I know it’s so easy, I’m going to have to start thinking about pressure canning! Freezing flat bags of stock is a bother, but I’m sure I can find pantry space somehow.

  9. Started making my own stock last year when I signed up for a chicken CSA share; would love to have this book and up my stock game!

  10. I’ve only ever made veg scrap broth, but was actually just looking at this book online yesterday and wondering if I should branch out. What timing!

  11. I buy a rotisserie chicken every week from Costco as an easy dinner. I almost always keep the bones for stock! Something about a roasted chicken just comes through better in homemade stock!

  12. This past year was the first time I tried pressure canning broth and it turned out great. It would be cool to have some new variations and insights about broth, it’s so easy to do the same ol’ thng each time.

  13. I collect bits of vegetable peels, including onion, chicken or beef bones, parsley or coriander stalks over the week in a Ziploc bag and keep in the fridge. Friday night, they’re all thrown into the crockpot with a bay leaf, peppercorns, a few pods of garlic, piece of ginger for flavour and let it simmer all night to make my stock. I use this as a base for making soup, rice or adding to a meat dish. Would love to learn more versions of stock.

  14. I’ve made my own stock/broth a few times and really enjoyed it. I’d love to learn more on how to improve.

  15. I make stock with leftover bits of chicken, meat, and vegetables and leave to simmer overnight in the crockpot to use when making rice and as a base for soup and meat dishes. Would love to learn new versions.
