I do the same thing. A little here, a little there, enhances dishes. I have a beef and a chicken in the fridge and Jennyema is right, it lasts forever.

You guys are great! The source for Minor's that I know in the area is not exactly convenient but I'm going to stick with it. I do love Penzey's but in this case . . . Your right, I've only known the 16 oz. size and it lasts forever in the freezer, I as well use it for all sorts of things. Thanks again guys - I can always rely on your input!

That is where I get mine too Andy.

On a side note, I am reading Anthony Bordain's Kitchen Confidential right now. There is a part where he talks about when he was in the CIA learning to cook. None of his fellow students in his stocks class could understand why his stock always tasted so much better than his. He would actually smuggle an envelope of minors base into the class and put it in his stock when no one was looking

We don't have BJ's, but we do have a GFS - they stock Minor's ckicken and beef, not veggie, and no low sodium versions. Love salt, but prefer to add my own control with it. Maybe I'll check GFS again. It's been awhile since I stopped by and it's on one of my "routes". Thanks again for your thoughts!

Perhaps you could ask the manager to carry the others varieties.

I get mine at BJ's too. I have only seen chix and beef there, though.

Unfortunately BJ's seems to discontinue things without notice, particularly things that aren't their house brand.

That's why I usually buy an extra or too so that if they do stop carrying it I'll still have some.

My mom buys it at a place in the Chicago area for twice as much as I pay but that place carrys pork, ham, seafood, etc flavors plus lo-sodium Minors.

Personally, I haven't found Minors to be that salty. Certainly not as salty as Better than Boullion or actual boullion cubes.

I've use the BTB veggie base as part of the brine for my thanksgiving turkey. Saltiness is less of an issue there. I haven't used any of the other flavors

Does anyone know where I can find Minor Soup Bases in the Connecticut area? I've never heard of this base and would like to try it.

Thanks.

Do you have BJ's in CT? That is where I get mine in MA.
