What is broth?
Broth is the result of a method of preparation that adds flavour, aroma and nutrients to water by infusing it with meat, vegetables or other ingredients. Broth is in fact an extract: by infusing the components their flavours and aromas are dissolved in the water. This makes broth very fragrant and flavoursome, even though water is its main component. Broth is used as the basis for preparing soups, sauces, ragouts and many other dishes.
