One recipe that I didn't agree with at all was the one for a whole chicken broth. For me, this was a waste of a chicken. The idea of a broth is to draw the nutrients and collagen from the bones. Using this recipe, you would get a lot of fats from the skin of the chicken and none of the collagen from the bones. For both chicken and beef broth, I roast vegetables to add to the bones. This adds flavor and also nutrients from the vegetables. I also simmer chicken and turkey bones for at least 24 hour and beef and bison bones for at least 72 hours.
For my purposes, I didn't gain any additional information, and felt that some information was left out. For example, in making bone broth, the water should never reach a boil. It must be simmered so that some bubbles are evident under the surface. This means keeping the water to something less than 212 degrees F. If the water boils, your broth will be clouded. The pot should not be covered, or your broth will be clouded.
What it boils down to is that this book provides some good information, but I don't believe that it provides all of the information needed to become proficient in making an excellent broth or stock., Too much is left out.
But the one issue I have is she calls for alcohol in numerous recipies. Now, I dont even want the stuff (alcohol) in my house. She says in her book use wine or vinegar and that she prefers wine for better flavor. So I guess her recipies will not be as tasty if you do not use alcohol. Ok......if you have an issue with alcohol then this book is not for you. But no worries, there are numerous books on making broth that have great tasting recipes without the use of alcohol.
I bought the book because I was looking for different nutritional options and recipe variations. For each recipe the author has suggestions for different flavor variety, how to store your broth once done cooking and what to pair it with. I also appreciate that she has recipes for basic stock and then provides many recipes using each stock.
This book is excellent for how to make broth and stock as well as how to use it so you can incorporate nutritious broth into your meals and it also helps with those nights when you haven't the time to cook a full meal. I can make soup on Sunday and store it in a mason jar in the refrigerator until the crazy busy weeknight when it can quickly and easily be warmed up for a quick meal.
