    Amazing. The broth tasted and smelled authentic from how I remember my of grandmother's cooking. Would make it again. I have enough seasonings and hoping to make it once a month. About the seasonings, toasted it on the frying pan. I didn't have linen cloth so used a coffee filter and tied it with regular strong. I also used Better than Bouillon chicken base seasoning because I wasn't confident in making the chicken stock. I simmered the stew for a few hours to unlock the flavors and aroma.
