Since I have started cooking for myself more in my student days I am learning the differences between little things like stock cubes...
These Kallo Organic Chicken stock cubes are bouillon in texture rather than dry and crumbly. Pretty much all that means is that they are sticky in texture and they need dissolving a lot more than the Oxo types of cubes do.
Kallo make a few different flavours of this product, I've seen beef, vegetable and even a lo-salt version of these when we have bought this pack.
The price of this six pack is 88p from Morrisons.
There is a tip on the box that says to dissolve one cube with a little oil or butter and brush over the chicken before you roast; these are a really healthy way to pack a lot of flavour from a tiny product, believe me!
The box is a medium orange colour and the contents weigh 66g. Each 11g cube is really a bit more of a flat rectangle shape wrapped in an orange and silver foil cover to keep them fresh.
These cubes are made in the EU and are advertised as being 'the perfect way to enhance the flavours of your home prepared dishes'.
The instructions say to dissolve one stock cube in 500ml of boiling water, and it does need to be boiling and you need to stir it very vigorously or else it won't melt properly in the bottom of the jug!
The calories are 7 per 100ml of water, in other words 35 in each cube...
Kallo advise to add a cube to your water when cooking noodles and rice or pasta for extra flavour but I add it to cous cous and it really packs a meaty punch to a usually flavourless grain :)
The stock cubes themselves are very sticky and look an odd light brown colour; they smell like Bovril and are packed full of different herbs that rehydrate like turmeric, celery, parsley, thyme, rosemary.
The smell is lovely and it tastes really strong to say the concentrated cube starts off so small!
Five stars from me even though they are more expensive you get what you pay for!
