Expert Tips

  • Short on time? Try Progresso® broths available in 32-ounce cartons in the soup section of your supermarket.
  • *Some mushrooms have woody stems that cannot be eaten, but they can be used to flavor the broth and then discarded.
  • Freeze broth in ice-cube trays. Once frozen, put broth into resealable freezer plastic bags and store in freezer.
