Is it viable to make stock from store bought Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning? I'd be ok using a bullion cube but they all seem to be loaded with salt.

Mix with water and bring to a boil.

Ingredients:

Organic Onion, Organic Garlic, Organic carrot, Organic black pepper, organic red bell pepper, Organic tomato granules, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Parsley, Organic bay leaves, organic thyme, Organic basil, Organic celery, Organic Lemon peel, Organic oregano, Organic savory, Organic mustard seed, Organic cumin, organic marjoram, organic coriander, organic cayenne pepper, citric acid and organic rosemary

  • How much salt could a boulion cube have? Certainly no more than the volume of the cube itself. Generally when you make a broth, it needs salt or it tastes insipid, flat and flabby. Just reduce the salt in your recipe by however much boulion cube you are using and it will balance out fine. – Escoce Oct 26 '15 at 18:11
  • That seems like a pretty legit point regarding the volume of the bullion cube... Thanks – greenguy Oct 26 '15 at 18:21
  • Don't forget to taste before serving. – Escoce Oct 26 '15 at 18:22
  • Though I should have mentioned that the people I cook for require very low salt in their diets which is why I prefer to add salt directly. – greenguy Oct 26 '15 at 18:27
  • Then adjust appropriately, or make your own broth without salt. Just boil down some chicken. It'll taste horrid until it's seasoned, but then at least you have an unsalted broth to start with. You don't have to buy expensive chicken. Cheap parts will work just fine. – Escoce Oct 26 '15 at 18:29
