Yum and what is broth

"Broth" is water that something was cooked in. So, for example, after you boil beef (usually with onions, celery and spices) the cooking water is called "beef broth". The water from cooking chicken is "chicken broth".  I think it may also be called "consumme" but I might be wrong about that. Broth, however, is NOT the same as "bullion". Bullion is an artificially flavored yeast extract that many people use instead of broth because it's cheaper and easier than broth (clearly, I'm a bit of a culinary snob  :) ).

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
