Low sodium organic chicken broth
You won’t get in-your-face intense roasted-meat goodness from Imagine Organic Free Range Chicken Broth Low Sodium (about $2.80 per quart). But we really liked this broth for its clean and subtle chicken flavor and aroma that, quite frankly, reminded us of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup. At first taste, when it was piping hot, the Imagine broth delivered more intense aroma than flavor; it wasn’t until the broth cooled a bit that we could detect more chicken on the palate. The Imagine broth made a comforting bowl of soup, and the chicken flavor became more pronounced after it reduced a bit from boiling with egg noodles and napa cabbage. The addition of lemon juice did, however, overpower it a bit. That said, we think this is a solid all-purpose broth that’s ideal for braises, poached dishes, sauces, soups—really, any application where you want to add a little extra flavor while letting the other ingredients shine.
