Stocks and glazes

Do most people make there own Stocks and glazes, or is there some high quality products that people like to buy? I find that I usually don't have the time or freezer space to have a bunch stored away.

Just wondering how others might handle their stocks and such

Welcome to DC!

I make my own stocks and sauces but buy demi-glaces and such when the recipe calls for it.

I make a lot of my own, yet if I need a quick one, here's the only "not-from-scratch-chicken-stock" I like:

I make my own chicken stock not beef though. It's simple and I love the smell in the house. I even make stock out of the costco roasted chickens I buy.

I love to make my own stocks, but hardly ever do. I plan on doing it more often, but we will see if that really happens.

I use Kitchen Basics boxed stocks. They taste great, but are a little harder for me to find.

I also use Minors bases. Well actually so far I have only used the chicken base as that is all I have been able to find, but I am very happy with that product.

I actually prefer Swanson over Kitchen Basics. I buy them in the box - low sodium. Always have one in the fridge. When i make stock I do the ice cube freezer thing.

For me..Excellent stock is the "secret" ingredient in recipes that call for a stock.
There are some things I will not even attempt If I don't have the right stuff to make the stock..99% of the time we use home made...In a hurry for something quick...we do use one of the brands mentioned above.

I'm too lazy to make my own. I buy chicken broth at costco. I also buy demi glace. More Than Gourmet is a good brand. It makes for a rich very flavorful sauce.

I'd really like to make my own stocks... but i just dont have enough kitchen/storage space to make it an easy endeavor. Plus between work and school I don't really have the proper time its takes to sit and watch my stock simmer all day long.

the stuff from Savory Creations | Home sounds pretty good. You can get a free sample, too..... except in Canada.
