Most bouillons are a witch’s brew of chemical flavorings. These natural, preservative-free stock concentrate packets from Savory Choice are a brilliant alternative. They allow you to mix up just a cup of rich broth at a time, letting you save your quart containers of stock for when you really need them. Whether you’re adding a splash of flavor to a sauté or reheating grains in style, these packets make experimenting easy. Look for them at your local natural grocery; about $5 for a 12-packet box, or order at www.savorychoice.com.
