Bone Broth vs Stock
If you’re not completely familiar with the terms broth, stock, and bone broth, they may sound interchangeable. However, they’re not. Take it from Epicurious, one of the most authoritative food sites on the planet. Here’s how they explain the difference:
- Broth is water simmered with meat, vegetables, aromatics, and sometimes bones. It’s cooked for only a short time—about two hours.
- Stock is water simmered with bones, vegetables, and aromatics. It’s cooked for a medium amount of time—usually four to six hours.
- Bone broth is made from bones, with or without meat. It’s cooked for a very long time—around eight hours for chicken, and 24 hours or even more for beef.
