Chicken feet

Postby scaro » Mon May 05, 2014 2:52 pm

We just had family guests from Portland, OR, and went for dim sum in London.

Not all the English eat them, but I was taken aback to find how appalled my American cousins were, when I ordered my favourite, chicken feet.

Looked it up and found that in the US, the feet are generally dumped or ground into fertilizer. Why would folk do that to the tastiest part of the bird?

Stunned, is the word. :shock:

They do not dump them; they sell it to us, to Russia! :lol:

American frozen chicken feet got a nickname "Bush's feet" in Russia :lol:

It is hard finding a place that serves chicken feet in the US.

Chicken feet are actually pretty tasty when made up right. Then again, I tend to go out of my way to try varied foodstuffs. For example, Alligator BBQ is wonderful with slaw, ditto for Opossum BBQ.

doesn't surprise me that alligator is tasty, we eat crocodile in Australia, and it is very nice. i want to travel down south one day in the US and i'll look out for it with slaw. sounds mouth watering.

Key to gator is to not overcook it. It easily gets tough and dry.

Eating habits on this continent are strange.

I love blood sausage and livers and kidneys and brains and I don't terribly dislike lung (though it's by no means a favourite), fried chicken blood and such things (though I cannot stand tripe!), all of these are things that on this continent most people seem to find abhorrent... more for me I suppose!
