What Is the Best Alternative to Homemade Chicken Stock?

Good Questions

Q: I usually like to make my own chicken stock, but I'm living in a situation where I don't have the space to store it all in the freezer.

I couldn't find good stock in the store, so I'm wondering if I could use bouillon cubes in the same way? I've never used these cubes before, and I know they have a really bad rep. Please help!

Editor: Amy, we would not recommend normal bouillon cubes, as they are weak, and far too salty. We have heard great things about Better Than Bouillon, which comes in a jar.

Readers, any suggestions for Amy?
