I'm making Pancit. To make the chicken I boil some water with ginger, reduce heat, add chicken and simmer for 20 minutes. Today when finished there was the weirdest gray residue on the chicken and that had foamed at the top. So strange. Is this from the ginger, the chicken or possibly from a new water filter? Have you ever seen this when cooking (boiling/simmering) chicken or ginger?
