To cut a long story short: I've just realised that I tipped the moisture-absorbing(?) pack that came with the chicken pieces into the cold water and vegetables for chicken stock. It cooked for nearly 45 minutes (brought to the boil then simmered low) before I realised that the spinach leaf that had wrapped itself around some pieces of carrot, etc., was in fact the aforementioned not-to-be-cooked thingy.
Removed it immediately, but am wondering whether the stock should be discarded or not.
Can you help. (And stop laughing.)
These moisture absorbent pads are not toxic. They are either filled with cellulose or a non-toxic polymer. Check these links.
Thanks for the giggle though. Last time I heard of something like that was when my first wife warmed up the mini-pizzas for a party still in their plastic wrap! It was just after oven roasting bags had been invented and she thought that was what to do. Plastic coated mini-pizzas are not appetising at all.
At least there isn't a party crowd waiting in anticipation (as for the mini-pizzas of your memory)!
Shame about my sister.
