So... i had chicken stock simmering on the stove when my mother in-law was over yesterday. She so politely told me I was making it wrong. She said to add the veg the last hour of cooking otherwise you cook the nutrients out of the stock. Is this true??
I could understand if I were planning to eat the vegetables. They would be a mushy tasteless mess after cooking for hours.
Any have any theories on this?
