In cooking, stocks and broths are one of the major building blocks for creating flavor, transforming the simplest homey dishes into deliciousness. Homemade broths and stocks are cheap to make, low in salt, and as easy to use as they are to make. Because they freeze well, you can store them either frozen into ice cubes or bagged in quarts. The stock cubes can be used to flavor dishes that need small quantities like stir fries and pastas. For dishes that need more liquid like soups, stews and risottos, the quart bags are the perfect size.
