Chicken Stock/Chicken Broth

I tried searching, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for... so I am going to ask. Apologies if this was asked somewhere down in the bowels of the forum... I searched for 20 minutes.

Anyway: is there a place to buy chicken stock/chicken broth here? I've searched most of the 'big' markets (Coop and Migros - several of each) for chicken stock/broth, and all I can find is powdered bouillon or liquid fond.

Does everyone here save up their chicken carcasses to make stock? Please say there's some available - somewhere! I would like to spend my Saturdays doing something besides making stock, and I find bouillon a poor substitute. Yes, I'm a lazy food snob.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Chicken Stock/Chicken Broth

I found turkey and veal stock in glass quart jars at Aligro in Lausanne. I'm with you, can't stand using a paste base or powder. Prior to my find, I was using that other well-known method of shopping in Switzerland, aka check-in baggage.

as a thought, you could integrate stock making with eating (yum!) Roast a chicken for sunday lunch or dinner, carve it after allowing enough time to rest and then get that broken up carcass, baked vegies, trivet and whatever else you like into the stock pot before you even sit down to eat. I've done this quite a few times. If you eat between 5-7pm by 10 pm you have a decent stock. Filter the solid fraction with a good strainer and and pass the remaining liquid through muslin clothe to remove the fine fraction. Cool the final liquid in a water bath (i.e. place the container with the hot liquid in a sink full of cold water) and in half an hour you have a stock ready for fridge or freezer.

Re: Chicken Stock/Chicken Broth

ok, its been a few years on this thread, but anyone know if its possible to buy stock yet in the supermarkets?
What could it be called?
Or is it still a bit of an exotic substance over here
I need some chicken stock, but funny enough don't have any chicken carcasses hanging around to make some, all i have in the cupboard is dried bouillon.
As i need to reduce the 'stock' considerably i think the seasoned bouillon is going to make it really salty.
Any ideas to get some this afternoon, i live in Oberageri near Zug??

Knorr makes these gel like mini tubs of concentrated chicken stock that work quite well in a pinch. You can get them at most supermarkets.

Re: Chicken Stock/Chicken Broth

Thanks, actually i do have some of these, it was just that i was under the impression they had been seasoned already?
Will use it anyway, and make sure no one adds any more salt !
Im sure the complaint police will groan at me for this, but i do get disappointed at the lack of variety of ingredients in the CO OP and Migros.
