Yes, ideally I would make all my own stock but I don't actually have a lot of bones (I live alone so don't do roasts often). During winter I like to make big pans of broth and so on, along with general uses. But even the nice organic cubes have lots of salt. Any suggestions?

Kallo make "very low salt" organic cubes - veg, chicken & beef

Ask your butcher for bones if you don't tend to have them. Proper stock makes such a massive difference. In an emergency though, I use Kallo low salt or bouillon low salt.

How much should you pay for bones? I have to get a bus to a butchers, so want to make sure it's worth it (I'd buy some other things too, obviously). I guess I have no idea about how to choose a butcher because I don't live in walking distance of one.

Marigold Vegetable Bouillon powder is brilliant for soups. They do a regular and low-salt version, available in most supermarkets and health food shops. Far nicer than stock cubes and less faff than bones.

You shouldn't have to pay for bones! A decent butcher will give them you for free. But probably best to buy something while you're there smile

I use these. Although I've stopped stressing about salt and just don't add any more salt to the cooking if I use stock.

Thanks all smile
who I agree but I have realised that I've been eating more salt than I realised so I'm trying to be more aware.

Thanks all for what to buy smile
