Aromatics and stock

I don’t like any aromatics in my stock.

If it’s chicken stock, I just want some wings, neck and feet (lots and lots of feet).

If I want beef stock, then it’s knuckles, joints (neck), and feet.

Aromatics just get in the way, nothing aromatic about them. Better to just save them for vegetable broth.

And of course the power company cancelled at the last minute. But I have lots of stock for the freezer.

Back on topic: I also don’t put aromatics in my stock, just bones. Stock is a blank but flavorful canvas to be seasoned as needed.
