Bouillon vs Bullion

Bouillon is a clear, usually seasoned broth made by straining water in which beef, chicken, etc., has been cooked, or by dissolving a commercially prepared bouillon cube or cubes in hot water.
Bullion is gold or silver considered in mass rather than in value.
Because of their identical pronunciations and confusing spellings, bouillon and bullion are frequently misused in English writing. You can either try to remember their spellings and uses or just check your writing with ErrNET copyediting technology to be positive. It’s your choice!
