Roe, as in roebuck, I believe.

The trouble is that the broths Johnnae mentions are mostly finished  
soups -- in the non-English sources these would have names translated  
into English, often by people like Scully, as brewets, to distinguish  
them from what we think of as broths.

"Potion" gets such an undeservedly bad rap these days ;-)
