Does Homemade Stock Really Make A Difference?

With all the convenience available these days, it is natural to wonder if homemade stock really makes a difference. Is it really worth all the trouble to make your own stock if you can simply go to the store and buy some? Well, the answer to this is not as simple as it may seem.

Whether homemade stock is going to make a difference to the taste of a dish depends on the specific dish. For a delicate soup there is no doubt that you have to use homemade stock. Most of the stuff you can buy is seasoned very strong and can kill the taste of a delicately flavored soup. So, sorry no way you can get away on this count.

On the other hand, if you are going to make a very spicy dish, the difference in taste will get completely lost in all the flavors and in such a case it is not necessary to use homemade. The only thing you have to be careful of here is to make sure you adjust your seasoning to prevent the dish from becoming to salty.

What it all boils down to is that you have to know the function of it in your dish. Does it only have to supply some much needed liquid or is it an integral part of the taste of the dish. Always keeping the function of a ingredient in mind in any dish is a good idea.

Whether you make your own will also depend on your personal circumstances. If you love cooking and always have lots of bones, leftover meat and veggies available you will want to use those and make some tasty homemade stock. On the other hand if you do not cook that much, simply buy it.

In essence, whether you make your own homemade stock or whether you buy it is a matter of personal taste and your personal circumstances.
