My foray into making another soup was partly motivated by D’s purchase of Trader Joe’s Free Range Chicken Broth when we were at our folks house cooking last weekend. Though I use a lot of canned chicken broth/stock, I can’t stand the smell when it is first opened, and I find most of them bland, too salty or just plain YUK. I would never dream of eating it right out of the can, even if warmed up.
But, I could tell that the Trader Joe’s chicken broth was different right when we opened it. It actually smelled fresh and a little like roasted chicken instead of smelling gross. It actually tasted rather nice right out of the carton. It even has a great color and the ingredients are simple.
So, I’m sold and now will look for opportunities to use it!
