Making your own chicken broth has so many benefits. First of all, it’s cheaper than buying cans or boxes from the store. Also it’s a very thrifty way to use spare chicken bones if you de-bone your own chicken. Also you can add your own flavor, such as roasted garlic.
Thick and packed with flavor, split pea soup with chunks of ham is one of my favorite comfort foods. This is especially if you have left-over ham. This recipe makes enough for a large family.
- Cooked ham cut into chunks – You’ll need at least 2 handfuls.
Beef stew is one of my dad’s favorite American comfort foods. There are pre-made seasoning packets that you can buy, but if you have red wine, tomato paste, bay leaves and beef broth, you don’t need all the extra sodium!
- Beef chuck roast – Cut into hearty 1″ inches.
