Does anyone ever use this product?

Someone gave me an unopened jar ages ago as they were allergic to something in it. It's been in my cupboard for years and every time I do a clear out I
wonder about chucking it and then don't, but remain too scared to use it. I haven't even opened it. PPK, help me to stop being such a baby. Can it be used just instead of normal stock?

It's disgusting. Throw it.

Now you've made me want to try it.

The same thing happened when I ask about tinned tofu and Holley described as something like a malformed foetus.

You can use it just like normal stock but I found it to be quite strong and overly salty. I wouldn't recommend it.

Tar in a jar.

I've used it & found it's fine as a stock.

I have used it but it makes everything brown and the taste overwhelms everything else in your dish.

ETA that by "everything brown" I meant whatever you put it in, it doesn't have magical dying properties otherwise.

I like it. It's super salty which I think is a good thing.
