Who sells real broth made from scratch?

  • 9

Looking for a place that sells homemade broth in Boston/JP. Made from bones, not the canned or boxed stuff. The real deal. I realize it's very easy to make, but the person who wants it doesn't want to make it herself. Thanks!

  1. I'd check with a Vietnamese restaurant that makes a good Pho Ga and ask if they will sell just the broth.

    1. unfortunately not in boston/jp but moody's in waltham has it.

      1. The two Formaggios and Moody's Delicatessen sell refrigerated tubs of highly reduced stocks. (I believe Formaggio also carries dehydrated stock in powder form, but I never buy that stuff.) The Butcher Shop sells full-strength clarified chicken stock.

        No proper home cook should admit it, but I keep a jar of Better Than Bouillon chicken base in my fridge as an emergency backup for when my supply of homemade stock periodically runs out.

        1. re: MC Slim JB

          I have Better than Broth low sodium chicken, beef and vegetarian. All add the zest to meals.

        2. Both Formaggio Kitchen and Dave's Fresh Pasta usually have a few varieties of store-made stock in the freezer.

          I also picked up a quart of rich-looking chicken stock at the Modern Rotisserie chicken side of New England Soup Factory in Newton (haven't tried it yet).

          1. Savenor's Cambridge often has it

            1. The Fresh Pond WF often has chicken and vegetable stocks made in store - in the refrigerated section facing the meat counters, usually in the upper right corner...

              1. New England Soup Factory usually has a very good quality homemade chicken broth in the freezer. I've used it in a pinch and been very satisfied. Tends to be a tad salty which is true of most of their soups but it is definitely not from dehydrated crud.
