Simple, Broth is just broth loaded with sodium for flavor.
Now stock is long cooked to reduce and develop the flavors of whatever is added to it, carrots onions celery seasonings etc.
Makes all the diffrence in the world in a good soup and is the cornerstone for some great sauces and graveys.
I recently had a pasta dish at a friends house whos wife is from Italy. Very simple, she had a large sauce pan with some chicken stock in it almost to the boil, added the fresh cavatelli just too cover.
As the stock would cook down she just laddled on a little more stock as needed.
Much like you would do a rissoto. The chicken stock was the sauce for the macaroni, so simple and Oh so good. Chow Jim
