Chicken stock or Broth

This sounds a bit silly, but what is the difference?

Do my fellow Judders make your own or buy it ready made? Is is fatty?

i think that chicken stock mean commonly the ready made one ..it's not fatty if you make it by yourself without adding any fats,just that simple..but the prepared one has about 85 calories for one cup i think that it's kind of fatty for down days..

Stock is usually stronger than broth.

Broth can be drunk as is or used as 100% of the liquid in a recipe;
stock would have to be watered down, or used in small amounts to add flavor.
OTOH, if you are making broth, you can reduce it (boil it down) to stock, or reduce it more to demi-glace.

I make my own, or buy "Better Than Bouillon", which is a paste in a jar
(I don't like paying for water, and try to buy products with less packaging).

I save up chicken bones (roasted bones impart a richer flavor/color) in the freezer and then once a month or so make a nice broth.
I add carrots, celery, onion, bay leaves & peppercorns and let it simmer for a day or two!
Fat rises to the top, and once the broth is chilled, the fat solidifies, so it is usually pretty easy to scoop out.

Adding a splash of vinegar will help release calcium & gelatin from the bones & cartilage, and make the broth more nutritious.

Sometimes I make a mixed broth with bones from pork chops, beef ribs, lamb, chicken, etc...it's very good!

I used to make my own broth as a base for other homemade soups. I always refrigerated it overnight then removed all the fat that rose to the top the next day. Yum!

My recollection is that stock is made with bones and veggies, and broth is more meat-based.

But then, you have "bone broth" which is definitely bone-based... so I may be completely off.

(well, I AM off, but not necessarily about broth!)

I don't buy it... we get enough bone-in chicken that I can keep the bones in a baggie in the freezer until I have a bunch, then throw them in the crockpot with water overnight. Makes a good five cups of rich stock, which then becomes the cornerstone of the lunches I take to work (heat up a cup of stock, add a teaspoon of miso paste and s hot of hot sauce, and put in Thermos).
