Canned chicken broth takes up a great deal of space on pantry shelves, while homemade broth takes a considerable amount of work. Bouillon cubes take up a fraction of the time and space, providing instant flavor for soups, stews and gravies at a moment’s notice. These flavor cubes are made by concentrating and dehydrating stock, then pressing it into solid form. At room temperature, bouillon cubes are shelf-stable for up to two years, and require only boiling water to reconstitute for a hearty broth.
