Wing’n it Sunday

Chicken Wings

If you’re looking to be all locavore with your Super Bowl Sunday hot wings, over the weekend I noticed Local Harvest carries chicken parts from Greenwood Farms.  They had a number of wings left (as the breasts go first) but Greenwood also makes raw milk deliveries to the store every Wednesday so you could probably iron out a delivery of a lot more if that’s the kind of thing you’re into.

Me personally, I got made fun of one Super Bowl while I was in college for baking a French Silk pie instead of watching the game.  I did, however, score a KitchenAid mixer the following Christmas in exchange for a second French silk pie as I’d whipped the first one by hand.  If you’ve never made one, it involves hours of whipping as you add only one egg at a time and then whip for something like fifteen minutes.

    We are big chicken wing eaters in our house. When we moved to AZ…it was hard to find good wings..I’m not talking about the jumbo pack of frozen, water-logged wings..good fresh wings from a butcher. But…we did and we have continued our Sat. night wing fests out here in the Wild West. But, I digress…what I really wanted to say was…I’m amazed that breasts go so fast…they are not, in my honest opinion, the best part of the bird…give me the wings or thighs anyday!

    oh…and the livers, gizzards and necks….i still have visions of my grandmother frying up these little delectibles and going to town on them with a peice of Lebanese bread after her weekly trip to the butcher….

    It’s lean protein and that’s what most people want to eat.

    We used to have another chicken producer, Higher Calling Farm, that would package chicken in parts, but they quit last year. The best part was they would give us free bags of chicken feet, which make an incredible stock. With Higher Calling out, we only have Greenwood that will sell the chickens in parts. If anyone has a line on another truly free-range producer that will do more than just whole birds, please let me know.
