Every home chef has special tricks to make the most delicious, richest soup broth: always use meat and bones; start with cold water; maintain a long, slow simmer – never a boil; and the list goes on. While all of these methods absolutely improve the flavor of your broth, they don’t compare to the flavor impact you get when you make your broth from double stock.
What is a double stock? Simply put, double stock is the culinary secret to the richest flavored broth and the most flavorful soups. A double stock is the outcome of a multistep cooking process used to fortify the flavor of a single stock and make the flavor of the finished product richer, more delicious. The double stock helps the broth create a richer flavor foundation for your soup broth, which is easily made through the addition of your desired ingredients.
Chefs spend this much effort and time making broth because broth is the heart and soul of homemade soup and homemade cooking. Broth sets the taste and tone of your soups, it drives the loved savory flavor and housewarming aromas that bring smiles to faces and warm memories to mind each and every time. The richness of broth fuels emotional connections around the world and turns an everyday meal into a treasured memory.
At Swanson®, we agree with the longstanding culinary tradition that a rich, flavorful broth is a must-have to make your most delicious soup and enable your most delicious meals. For this reason, every batch of Swanson® Chicken Broth starts with a premium double stock. We carefully craft our premium double stock from 100 percent natural chicken meat and bones that are gently simmered for 12 hours. This long simmer allows us to extract optimal flavor from the meat, and gelatin and collagen from the bones to boost the body of our double stock. We then create our premium double stock through a proprietary multi-step process that uniquely clarifies our stock and fortifies its flavor. The outcome – a delicious premium double stock with richer flavor. Starting our chicken broths with this richer flavored double stock yields a more robust, well-rounded broth flavor, just like homemade flavor at its best.
Best of all, the flavor benefits of starting Swanson® Chicken Broth with a premium double stock do not end with the broth itself. The more robust, rich homemade flavor carries through to your final dish, helping you make your most delicious homemade soups and meals every time.
Only Swanson® Chicken Broth starts with a double stock for richer flavor. Don’t settle for anything less – choose Swanson, choose double stock for richer flavor every time.
