Using only stock would of course be way too heavy I assume? If I use 1 cup water, how much stock should I add for example? Thanks in advance!
I make much of my own stock and since I do, I try to make it last. I often use stock/water combinations. If a recipe asks for 3 cups of stock, I will use 2 cups of my own stock and 1 cup of water. I do this just in case my stock is to heavy. And if it is too mild, I can always add flavor to perk it up.
I love making stock, it is a good way to put bones, veggie stuff to good use when you can't use it all in your daily cooking.
I just need to figure out how to make some good beef stock!
