Help!! Once you make "broth" with a chicken bouillon cube does it need to be refrigerated? I threw some asparagus, water a cube in a pot yesterday and once it came to a boil I shut it off and left it on the stove to make cream of asparagus soup - but I forgot about it overnight - can I re-boil and make the soup today or do you think I might make my family sick since it was not refrigerated? Thanks in advance for advice!

I would toss it and start over - not worth risking and it was out a pretty long time ... I think long enough for something buggy to grow. Boiling would PROBABLY be safe, but why risk it?

DARN! That's what I thought, was hoping all that salt in the bouillon would "preserve" it. I was craving it and I have no more asparagus ;-( thanks for the reply.

Just an FYI for those interested. I just called Hormel Foods (the brand of cube I used) - they said throw it out - cannot be left out more than a hour just like fresh chicken broth. Bummer but good to know for the future.

stock is pretty similar to what they culture germs on...I'd toss it.
