Same thing happened a long time ago when I stopped using garlic and onions in my stock. I did it because the pups can't eat onions or garlic (and part of the stock is for them). But I had no idea that the stock would taste cleaner as a result.
I love when stuff like this happens.
And now, I'm about to have breakfast. A cuppa chicken stock with some cooked millet tossed in, served in a Halloween mug. After that, it's me and Harry Potter for the morning, followed by light chores throughout the day.
Low-key. Unplugged. Rest Day.
