    Default Kitchen Bouquet

    I just read that it has a shelf life of 30 years. I best run out and get a bottle, because mine is probably about to expire. I never think to use it when I'm cooking. What do you use it for besides gravy?

    I use it to brown meats or to add color to some recipes.

    Does it add flavor too?

    Funny this should come up today because I found a clone for it last night. I've never tried it, so cann't say if it is close or not.

    Uses -

    Kitchen Bouquet is considered a browning agent and is used primarily for color enhancement but also adds some flavor to foods. It is a liquid that is sold in bottles. When lightly brushed on meat it adds a mild beef flavor and a dark brown color similar to well-roasted beef. It can also be used in gravy, soups and marinades. Some people even put it in alcoholic drinks instead of bitters for taste and color.

    Holy crap I remember owning a bottle of that stuff when I just got married and was teaching myself to cook. I wonder what ever happened to that thing?

    Funny you should mention this but I just used it in conjuction with melted butter to baste our Thanksgiving turkey. Other than that I use it to darken gravies especially for beef stew or salisbury steaks.
