Welcome to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge! Each day in April (except Sundays) I’ll be posting about unusual and exotic foods.
Chicken feet are popular in many countries, even here in certain regions of the United States. Served as a beer snack, a cold dish, or in soup. Actually, with bone broth rising in popularity, chicken feet make an excellent bone broth.
The Chinese use bone broth to strengthen the kidneys and help support digestion. You know the benefits of chicken soup, right?
Okay, broth made from chicken bones and tendons is one thing. In Hong Kong, the chicken feet are typically deep-fried, then simmered in a black bean sauce. In Eastern Europe, the feet are boiled then cooled, and the gelatin from the feet help to make an aspic. In Jamaica, the feet go into the aptly-named chicken foot soup.
So tell me, would you eat chicken feet?
