I have a recipe that calls for 2 cups of brodo. Can someone tell me what this is, where I can get it, or if I can make it myself?

Thanks in advance!

      And, the varieties are endless; fish broth, vegetable both, beef broth, chicken broth, handmade or canned.

      Some Italian mama's call a chicken broth with orzo or stelline (teeny pasta stars) Brodo instead of zuppa.

    2. "brodo" is Italian for soup stock. Yes, you can make it on your own.

      1. Brodo, at least Batalia brodo, is a lighter homemade stock generally using mixed meats but not simmered a long time.
