WARNING! If you are one of those people who don't like chicken feet - then skip this blog posting. (I know there are several of you out there.....)
Chicken feet and necks = The Best Chicken Stock
That's it-- plain and simple.
Though to make the stock, you have to get over what the pot looks like and the feet pointing up at you. You need to remember to strain the stock well when transferring to the freezer or can or when just making soup the same day. Kevin went to school one day with chicken soup and came home that afternoon saying "um mommy, I had a little foot bone in my soup today at school. It was kind of freaky and also kind of funny"
If you look close you'll see the fingernails.... he-he.
Add Sage to this and then this is the old time recipe for chicken soup. The whole chicken (including neck and feet) and fresh sage. Evidently that's the cure for a cold.
