I've always used boxed organic broth but I'm curious about trying Minor's now (we just got a free 3 mo. trial to BJs). What advantages do you all find using that kind of base as opposed to using a pre-made broth?

Home made is always a first choice. I also use canned broth (Swanson's) for sauces and soups.

I tend to use Minor's to enhance flavors is a sauce or to add richness to canned broth. I don't use Minor's to make 6 cups of stock to make a pot of soup.

I use mine like Andy. Usually to enhance home made or canned or when I need a small amount -- like a cup or so. I buy canned broth (Swanson's low sodium) by the can and by the carton, but sometimes only have a carton or only need 1/3 of the can.

I sneak a tiny bit into salad dressings and marinades. I use it for brines. Pan sauces. Mashed potatoes.

I admit to having used it in place of homemade or canned a few times, but it isn't as deep and rich as I would like.

I also use mushroom flavor "Better than Boullion" sometimes, in small amounts. That has a good and unique flavor. I don't know if it has msg in it -- but then again, i add a pinch of Goya packets to a lot of things I make.
