We’ve been watching video interviews with various doctors, mostly chiropractors specializing in nutrition. There are five videos available per day so, depending on how late in the day we get started, we’ve had some late nights of watching these videos but most of them are excellent.
Through the years, especially since we’ve been learning more about nutrition and the role foods play in what we eat, we’ve heard so much about bone broth. After finishing the videos last night, we were both fired up about making and consuming bone broth. We both had our computers out looking at recipes and reading what other people had to say. One recipe I came across included chicken feet. I’m not going to list the supposed health benefits of chicken feet but if you should be crazy enough to want to know, simply google “health benefits of chicken feet”.
While I can’t say for sure that they’re a cure all or even that they are beneficial, it’s worth a try. Bright and early this morning, Vince said “Let’s go to Walmart . . ” Oh, no . . YOU can go to Walmart but I’m not going this morning.
So . . off he went to Walmart and to Aldi, of course. Vince can sniff out a bargain like no one else.
He found 5 packages of boneless, skinless chicken and one big package of chicken thighs at Aldi marked down to half price.
He bought three organic chickens. I’m cooking one today. I’ll make bone broth in the Instant Pot and use the chicken feet.
I divided the packages of “paws” in half so there will be about 8 or 9 feet in each batch of broth.
For now, 8 or 9 feet are boiling in water with celery, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, bay leaves. I figured the chicken feet will take up room in the pressure cook and that may be room I need for the roasted bones. The feet don’t need to boil as long as the bones do so . . that’s how I’m doing it for today.
