good chicken stock concentrate

Bernhardt Apr 29, 2010 05:22 PM

when i havent't got time to make chicken stock from scratch, i used to use the PC chicken stock concentrate and found it excellent. They don't make it any more - do any of you have a favourite brand of non-MSG containing concentrate?

      Pacific is definitely not concentrate. I use it to make risotto etc. It's quite good.

        I know the stock paste the OP is talking about. It used to be in the fridge near the bacon etc. It is a concentrate and came is a small screw top container. The Pacific is something different.

        The recommendation for the Better Than Bullion is a good alternative. I started using it as soon as I couldn't find the PC version. Still highly miffed that they stopped selling the PC though.

          I loved the PC Chicken Stock too. Turns out the supplier doesn't make it anymore...

            I too was devastated when I couldn't find the PC product - I have been using it for years and loved it. I stocked up on Better Than Boullion at Wegmans, where it is about half the price as I have seen it here.

      I buy Pacific Organic Chicken Stock at Costco. Can't remember the price offhand, but it's much cheaper (6-pack) than in the supermarket or health food store.

          I use IMAGINE Organic Chicken Broth which has great flavour. It has a clean, home made chicken broth taste. I buy it at Highland Farms.
