Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I’ve been cooking a long, long time, and I first heard the phrase “bone broth” about 2015. As far as I can tell, it’s what I’ve always called stock, or meat stock, if I’m talking to vegetarians.

Now, stock and broth are different things. Stock is what you get when you put bones and vegetables in water, boil them for an extended period, and strain out the solids. It becomes broth when you add it to fresh ingredients and cook ‘em up into soup. Concentrate and clarify it, and you get bouillon. Concentrate it to a gluey consistency and the result is demi-glace.
