She {hearts} Homemade Bouillon

We’ve been MSG, additive, and preservative free for some time now. I’ve been making homemade stock, but it sometimes seems a little on the bland side. But now that I’ve mastered bouillon? Flavor explodes all over my kitchen!! Or maybe it’s the inevitable mess I make?

1lb of ground meat (pork, beef, turkey, chicken)

1 bag carrots

1 bag of celery

2 onions

2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on your taste)

salt and pepper

Cook all ingredients on very low heat, covered, for about an hour or so.  Put contents in a food processor and zap until smooth.  Spray a cookie sheet (or ice cube trays) with cooking spray and freeze.  If you use a cookie sheet, pop it out after frozen and cut into cubes. Return to freezer.  Use to add flavor to soups, stews, gravies.

This is a photo of my turkey bouillon. It’s a little orange from the carrots, and it resembles pumpkin bars…but you won’t believe the flavor this stuff packs!!

    This is totally cool!

  3. So, because I need everything spelled out for me….
    No water.
    Just cook the stuff in whatever juices it makes all by itself.
    Do you check it, give it a stir, break up the meat, every now and then?

  4. Dara says:

    Do you add any water, or do you cook the ingredients dry? I will have to try this!
