Georgia, I do exactly the same as you when making my stock
The thought of any fat in my food abhors me,
Feel like it's murder to give anyone food not properly prepared.
After all, we want healthy lives.
I love stewed sausage, another thing I do,(my son's favourite)
When steaming shredded cabbage mix grated carrot through it,
Not only looks nice,,,,,,,tastes delicious.
