Make your own bouillon cubes.
Make a strong stock of whatever you wish (chicken, beef or vegetables). I let it stew in the crockpot for an extra long time to get all the flavors out.
After it's cooled off a little bit, spoon the stock in ice cube trays and freeze. After it freezes, pop out and put in a zip lock bag. Label if you're going to make more than one kind.
Next time you need a bouillon cube, grab one of these ice cube bouillons from the freezer. One batch will make you a lot and will last for a long time. So much cheaper than store bought and so much healthier.
How do you make it stronger? Just add more seasoning? Thanks
I usually put an entire chicken carcass, include innards in the crockpot with lots of carrots, parsnips, celery, garlic, fresh bunch of parsley, etc.
The leftover vegetables/meat is great if you have dogs. You can put them all in a blender or just use a potato masher and mix it in with the dog food. Or you can dish out the veggies, mash/blend and put in your spaghetti sauce.
