Why maker your own stock? The reasons are endless!
First and foremost, homemade stock tastes dramatically better than the closest grocery option.
Making stock allows you to cook frugally, putting every scrap of meat and vegetable to good use, and while it takes time, a good stock requires little attention.
Stock can be “stockpiled” in ice cube form and frozen for up to a year – drop a few cubes into any savory dish that calls for liquid.
Lastly, it is all but impossible to cook restaurant quality food without first-rate stock.
