MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2014

"Tasty, delicately flavored stock. The fresh basil is a delicious and different ingredient from most stocks."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

"This is identical to the recipe my Mom used for 50 years. It is delicious, freezes well, and so is always available for cooking, adding to gravies, or even a quick lunch with some noodles thrown in.

My Mom called it "Fowl Chowder"!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2009

"I made this turkey stock with my Thanksgiving turkey carcass. Very good, delicately-flavored stock. However, mine came out darker-colored than that shown in the photo. Fresh basil is a different, delicious flavor for stock. Of course, it has no salt or pepper as it is intended to be used in other recipes. However, I'm going to have to buy one of those rubber muffin tins so I can freeze it in 1/4 cup amounts and pop them out to keep in the freezer."
