Thank you Kay. So the BTB would add a nice smoky flavor to my soup.
I am going to order the BTB Ham base and the Goya ham base from Amazon.

Imagine using some of it as a stock for red lentil and carrot soup!
Aside: Last night I used the BTB lobster base. Ten 3"x3" thawed fresh frozen pieces of halibut, 10 large thawed prawns. I made the sauce using a C of Original V8 juice, 3 T clarified butter, 1 clove fine chopped garlic, 1/2 T of the lobster base, 1/2 t Pernod. When this sauce was boiling hot, just a couple of minutes before serving, (with plain cooked Jasmine rice,) I added the room temperature halibut pieces and the prawns. I put the lid on and just barely brought the sauce back to the boil. Turned off the heat and let the fish/sauce rst for a couple of minutes. Just before serving I added the juice of one squeezed lemon. S&P.
Served and garnished with some fine chopped watercress, though parsley or cilantro would have worked.
The fish was PERFECTLY cooked through.
I am often dismayed when I read recipes that call for any seafood to be high heat cooked for say "10" minutes +.

I picked up a ham base and lobster base at the local supermarket this morning, $4.99 for any variety. The product locator on BTB's web site was accurate.

I looked at Amazon for theses items. Their prices were outrageous! $9.95 for chicken, $7.41 for lobster. Jet was close to supermarket prices, $0.50 less for the lobster, $0.90 more for chicken.
