This is a delicious and versatile broth powder that can be made easily and inexpensively in your kitchen. The salt content can be adjusted down or up to your taste and dietary needs. This broth is much more flavourful than most commercial low-sodium brands.

1 Tbsp (15 mL) light unbleached granulated sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme
1 tsp (5 mL) finely crumbled dried sage
1 tsp (5 mL) paprika
1/2 tsp (2 mL) turmeric

Blend ingredients together in dry blender until powdery. Store in dry airtight container. Use 2 tsp (10 mL) per 1 cup (250 mL) hot water.
