Fisher's Mom, I routinely make my own chicken, beef, and shrimp/seafood stock. I never add salt to the stock, to give myself more flexibility while cooking.
Heck, I just made a batch a chicken stock the other day.
I'll probably be making a pot roast here soon. My wife got a good-sized roast last week, and I know she loves my pot roast.
Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!
