I do French Onion, Seafood Bisque and Mom's chicken soup. Mom's recipe is simple though it's never been written down.. guess I'll hafta do that lol.

The others are complicated, the stock is the key. I'm due to make some bisque soon so I'll be posting the recipe while it's fresh in my mind.

Ok thanks. My stock issues sorta resolved themselves upon discovering Better than Bullion Soup Base. Minor's Brand is also good.

I have some of the Minor's bases and Korr's beef, but I only use them in an emergency. They're basically salt with flavoring. Like 830 mg sodium per tbsp. I want my salt added to the final recipe at the end, not as part of the stock. And the grocery store stocks have MSG, even the "natural" ones.

My seafood stock is made from boiled lobster shells. Beef stock is beef marrow bones simmered 8 hours. Both with prerequisite mirepoix and spices of course.

The stock makes all the difference.

Well according to the ingredient label on Minor's or Better than Bullion I will have to contest the salt base statement. I see good things till it hits salt lower in the scale. Now cant make no assurances on Knorr I dont use stuff like that..lol. I like Better than Bullion Chicken and Beef stock best..but have to turn to Minors for Shrimp base for Gumbos. Now that can kick it into outter space. Minors chicken base tastes like chicken feathers and makes the kin fart like a pack mule. The BBB dont do that. The Minors beef base has chunks of beef in it which drives me crazy. Thanks for the heads up on the MSG issue. Wonder how them billions of chinamen who eat pounds of it each month are managing to survive? lol. J/k we dont eat nothing that has it or try no to anyway.

Lots of people might be surprised to learn how many vegetables contain MSG naturally. In fact, if you don't ingest enough, your body actually does manufacture it in small amounts.
It's a natural substance.

The labels on the Minor's lobster and crab bases have salt as the 2nd ingredient. Fortunately, you only need 1 tbsp for a gallon of stock but you have to be aware of the effect on your recipe.

Good plan on that. The label of the BB says Roasted beef and concentrated beef stock..salt number 2 on that one too. I use it a teaspoon per cup. Never have any over salty issues but I dont add any extra salt till it comes time for a taste test and adjustment if needed. To make a big pot of soup too salty using he stuff alone a person would have to use a bunch more than is recommended on the label.
