I won't buy anything but Swanson's. I've made it, but mine doesn't taste as good as Swanson's so I just don't bother anymore. Besides at 67 cents a can by the case at Costco, why would I ?

That's my predicament. I've tried making stock a few times, and it's a pain in the butt, and doesn't taste as good as I think it should. Could be I'm just crappy at making it.

Don't worry Dan. Because others think they can make better than canned stock is just fine by me. Even if I wanted to make it, I wouldn't give up freezer space for it.

A friend of mine cans her stock...I put mine in ice cube trays and then ziplock bags.

And I like Kitchen Basics stocks. When I cannot find it, I will go with College Inn or Swansons.

Making your own is better than any store bought brands and easy to do.
