I’m a big fan of DIY recipes. They give you a new-found sense of badassery that makes the effort well worth it.
Fresh Ginger Ale? Yeah, I’ve made that. No big deal.
For some reason, I had never made broth. It’s just so easy to buy it, but now I know that it’s also a cinch to make. Aside from that though, you can control the flavor of it to go along with whatever it’s going in. It does cost a little more to make your own, but I say go for it if you’re going to use it for something brothy, like vegetable soup. (I spent about $6, by the way.)
Since I hadn’t ever made it, I used a recipe as a guide. Don’t judge!
