Is there a fix for my chicken soup - it tastes sour

After making chicken soup for years my current batch tastes off - it seems sour to me. Does any one have a fix for this or should I just make a fresh batch?

    1. Make a fresh batch.

      It's only chicken and water.

      יהוה will be cool with it.

      1. Haven't had this particular problem but it seems to me that "sour" results from too much acid. Try neutralizing the acid with a pinch of baking soda or something alkaline. Since this is experimental, try it on a small sample first before risking the entire batch. Good luck!

        1. My experience with sour chicken soup was left warm covered overnight, I wasn't the cook but I thought it was spoiled

          1. make a fresh batch. when in doubt, throw it out.
