I am having FRESH gizzards for dinner. Had to change my menu when DH decided it was time to butcher the excess roosters. Soooo I have five very fresh gizzards for dinner. Going to do the boil till tender and then fry till crisp version. Boy were those fun to clean. And we didn't feed them yesterday and the gizzards were still full. Resourceful roosters ate a lot of grass.

Bet my hens aren't sorry to see five roosters exit the chicken yard.

Will let you know how they turn out. I have always loved gizzards from a chicken place but have never cooked a bunch just for me.

I don't envy you doing the cleaning. LOL I remember one year, years ago when I lived in the country woods and was an Earth Mother/Hippie, I ordered 100 mixed sex baby chicks. Oh, My Land Sakes!

And I'm sure your hens are glad to have those roosters gone. They're just a bother!

Pat - My son always raised broilers or turkeys for his 4-H projects. I feel your pain since we had to order at least a 100 chicks to raise to show, then had to process the rest. Without DH we would have never finished that project. Kind of glad when he just showed turkeys. Fewer birds and he could sell those on the hoof so to speak.
Hmmmm. Didn't figure you for the Earth Mother type.

Yup, Whole Earth Catalog and everything.

Starting in 1970, and then over twenty years in a hardwood forest, the first five living without any plumbing, without any water even, driving a mile down to the county park to hand pump water into 5 gallon jugs to haul back. I can tell you all about taking a shower in the rain. It's cold, but you can get lathered up just fine. And then, somehow, it's hard to get all the soap rinsed back off again.

Raising rabbits, chickens & ducks & geese, collies & kitties & and a pony for daughters.
I can butcher and dress out a rabbit with the best of them. Hunting squirrels, hunting morels, hunting blackberries, hunting ginseng. Fish from the river, snapping turtle soup, and wild hickory nut cake.

After the first five years there was a real house with real plumbing. But the first five years were the sweetest in a lot of ways.

Do you know the sound of the deep woods on a hot summer night? That's what I heard at night there. That wonderful cacophony of sound that comes from the hum of night flying insects and crickets and the calls of frogs and the singing of toads? I've always been able to hear that in my head when I close my eyes and remember. I always thought I'd be listening to that sweet restful music as I lay dying. I could hear it when I laid my head on my pillow at night. Then..... I realized that I've finally developed tinnitus in my later years, and I was given that nighttime sound that I always loved so much, and now I can hear this all the time. I think of it as a gift.

Well, that was a failed experiment. I boiled those little suckers for an hour and they were still tuff but I fried them anyway. Chewy is an understatement. After I gnawed on them for awhile I shared them with my goat dog. She wasn't sure what to do with them either. Guess homegrown, free range, although young roosters aren't good candidtes for gizzards. It was a learning experience. Guess I'll drop by the local chicken place on my next UD for some gizzards.

Grandy's used to have fried chicken gizzards on the menu...we used to get them for my dad. This thread also reminds me of when my parents would have liver and onions for dinner. I never felt the need to partake in any of these excursions...the smell alone was enough to keep me away from them...forever. Also, knowing the liver's function in the body seals the deal for me.

God bless you all who eat them! You remind me of my parents.

Or chitlins!

PS...I was born in Texas & my family's Mexican,
so I have a double heritage of "weird" food...
BUT my mom became a vegetarian when I was 3,
so, as far as I know, I've never had to eat tripas or menudo!
(I have had hog's head tamales, though. They're delicious!)

DH loves tripas tacos. I always thought that was tripe, but he informed me that I was mistaken. Tripe is the stomach, and tripas is made from the small intestine. They both sound disgusting to me!

I made my first chicken liver pate last night and it was and so much less expensive than purchasing it at the store!
