Product Review, Orrington Farms Chicken Broth Base

I have been wanting to try a broth base to add flavor to soups, stews and noodles that I make so I contacted Precision Foods about trying some of their bases.  They sent me some chicken, beef and ham base to try.  The package arrived today and it came at a perfect time.  We were having chicken vegetable soup for supper so I was able to try it right away.  I started out with a quart of water, shredded chicken from the freezer, a little salt and pepper and added 2 TBSP of the chicken flavor.  I brought this to a boil and added 1 quart of the mixed vegetable soup mix that I canned earlier this week.  I returned this to a boil and simmered for 10 minutes.  We let it cool down and then served it.  I've never used a base before so I was not sure how much to use and next time I will add a little more.  It had a very good flavor and my husband ate 2 bowls of it.  He said the flavor was good and agreed that the next time I need to use a little more.  I liked that it added flavor without using fat to achieve this.
My fall green beans will be ready to pick on Saturday and I will be using the Vegan, ham flavor when I cook them and will let you know how they turn out.  Now if I could get my husband to eat beef vegetable soup tomorrow I would try it but it will have to wait until next week.
Would I buy the chicken flavor base, yes.  An added bonus for me is the containers are the perfect size to use to put dried herbs in so I will be saving and recycling the containers.

 I received this product free for the purpose of reviewing it and no other compensation was received for this review. The opinions expressed in this review are my honest opinions.
