Every cook, whether a beginner or a pro, should have this recipe in their recipe book or box! My grandmother wasn't real good at writing down her recipes, she just knew what to do. It was taught.
Though she was a very good cook, & I learned a lot from her, she didn't "teach" me to cook. Bake, yes. But not cook. But I was very observent when she was in the kitchen, and wanted to know "how do you make....?"
And since she had very few recipes written down, I took notes.
When I started cooking, I noticed canned chicken broth didn't taste like grandma's! This is soo much better, & easy to make!
