  • Kitchen Bouquet

    Have you ever used it? I haven't. I see recipes that call for it all the time. Does it have a flavor? I thought it was just a "browning" sauce.
    I've never missed it in any recipes. I guess cause I've never tried it. But.... is it sooooo good I need to invest in some??

    Is this the same thing as 'bouquet garni' or is it a brand name seasoning?
    Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

      It's a brand name. It's a brown liquid. I've read it called a browning sauce, to make gravy's more brown, and I've heard it called a seasoning. Just curious about it.

          My MIL has always used it in her Turkey Gravy. Dan says that a little bit goes a long way as far as flavor and color. I have never used it, and my Turkey Gravy does taste different that MIL'S, but I don't know if it is because of that or other seasonings... She does make Excellent Turkey Gravy though...

              That was a staple in our cupboards growing up.. All it does is turn white gravy brown. It has no flavor.

                I think it has flavor. Funny, I guess it's like it says on the site Nu posted:

                Some people think it has no flavour; some people think the flavour is an important part of it; some people don't like the flavour, thinking it tastes burnt. The truth is, the flavour tastes mildly like beef. It is made from herbs, spices, vegetables and water.


                But, it does say on the bottle Kitchen Bouquet Browning and Seasoning Sauce.

                  My Mom used it all the time for gravies. I use it too sometimes. Just use a small amount ,it darkens gravies. If you don't have enough browness in the pan gravy can be real light and not appealing a few drops really helps out. My Mom also love Wondra flour for gravy too, I use it because it doesn't lump up.

                    I use it in my gravy too, usually turkey gravy. I will use it at other times if I think the gravy is bland.

                      There was always a bottle in our cupboard when I was growing up. I have it now... after last year's turkey gravy tasted a bit bland. Just a few drops'll do ya! It's very salty and adds flavor and color.

                          I remember "Kitchen Bouquet" from way back when. All I can remember it being used for was gravy.

                            I used the stuff back in the 1980's. My ex mil swore by it, so of course I had to learn to use it. It does make good gravy, but I learned how to make great gravies without it. I had forgotten all about it until you mentioned it!

                              Always in our cupboard growing up too. I mainly use it on turkeys in the roaster (for browning color) and for gravy. I am one of those who thinks it has a taste too! LOL
