I am quoted in an article “Is bone broth the new coffee?” by Kevyn Burger, which appeared in the Taste section of Thursday’s edition!!
Burger contacted me b/c of my old blog post about making broth from chicken feet, entitled “Why Didn’t the Chicken Cross the Road?”. Answer: because its feet were in China.
I believe you will get a ‘kick’ out of that post (pun intended)! Basically, I make the case for chicken feet broth and decry the common hypocrisy about feet vs wings.
I do want to add a comment, however. I’m quoted as saying that I don’t always tell people that I’ve used chicken feet in soup. But rest assured, the vegan food I cook for clients is truly vegan! No bones about that!
Besides being cheap and tasty, chicken feet broth is full of healthful glucosamine and chrondroitin. You may as well enjoy animal joints more directly. I don’t find gel supplements particularly tasty.
There are lots of recipes for chicken feet broth on the interweb, as there are for other stocks & broths. But really, just throw them in a pot or crockpot w/ an onion and simmer away.
