Stock or Broth – What’s the Difference?

Every great soup starts with a stock, or a broth. While colloquially we might use the terms stock and broth interchangeability, there’s a technical difference between the two. Stock is made using bones. Broth is usually not. Therefore, the term “bone broth” is not correct.
Regardless of the terminology, when bones are used in preparation of stock, they add a rich and strong layer of flavors. To get the best out of the bones, stock is usually simmered for much longer than broth, sometimes over 24 hours when beef bones are used!
If you’re buying a prepared broth or stock, read the labels carefully.
