Why do stock recipes usually say to simmer with the lid off?
I looked at a couple of stock recipes today and I notice they say to simmer stock with the lid off. That seems counter-intuitive to me, since with long simmering, you're going to lose some volume of the stock. Does anyone know why you wouldn't want to simmer stock with the lid on?
