Beauty Soup Stock


There are a lot of websites talking about the benefits of bone or collagen broth so I’ll not go into it. I usually make a big batch of it every few weeks or until I’m running out of it. I do not season it with salt because I prefer to do it when I use it for stew or soup, with either salt, soy sauce or flavourful ingredients like dried scallops, anchovies, etc. Here’s how I prepare my beauty soup stock.
