Yeah, I was wondering about that one. Is there any actual positive effect to posting blackmail threats, particularly those of a patently false nature, in a public forum?

My opinion on chicken foot:  vocals are old-school Hagar, but Satriani can do better--the first album sounded like they really failed to unleash him.

Coat it with flour and corn starch. Deep. Fry for three minutes until it starts to turn brown. Remove from oil and chill. When cooled put in slow cooker with five spice, cinnamon, soy, ginger, crushed Thai chilies, rice wine and fish sauce.

This kind of thing pisses me off. People should see what they are eating and understand it. Anyone who find sa chicken foot repulsive should be a vegan or some shiat.

That said, chicken breast is expensive, feet are very cheap, and meat handling is important as people can die. It says pretty bad things about the standards in this shop, and would make me question everything packed there.. is it what it says it is, is the weight right, is the kind of dumbass who puts that in there following hygeine rules?

Hey now, don't encourage this. My wife doesn't eat identifiable beef or pork because of that, though she will eat hotdogs and bacon because she loved them so much before she decided that the rest of meat was bad that they're effectively grandfathered in. With white-meat poultry, hotdogs, and bacon as the only meat choices for her, I've basically given up on meal planning.

I once found a bunch of worms in a package of fish at a Fry's Food store (Kroger for you non-Arizonians). They were still moving around. I went through the other packages and found others, went to the guy that was in the butcher jacket and showed him the fish. He was like "That's just part of the skin."  The fark? I was pretty grossed out for a while.

But seriously, a chicken foot in a pack of chicken breasts is a bonus.

BONUS.

I like when my local Publix gets chicken hearts.

I marinate them overnight in five spice, sesame oil, rice vinegar, crushed red pepper, honey and loads of garlic and then skewer them and cook them kabob-style on the grill.

Serve over a bed of brown rice.  Good stuff.

No, you kind of suck the meat/skin off the bones and spit em out though I prefer ducks feet. Also, on the other end of the bird, ducks tongues also have bones in them so be careful if you order those too. Nearly broke a tooth on that discovery.

The only problem here is that boneless skinless chicken breasts are priced about 20 times higher than chicken feet, so if somebody bought that package they'd be paying way over market rate for that tasty, tasty, collageny foot.

If you can get your doctor to really believe you habitually carry around an emergency can of pork brains, be sure to get a pic of the resulting look on his face.

And are chicken's feet are really that frightening, pussy-lady? Roasted chicken gizzards on a stick are pretty popular here; maybe she should try that. Roasted womb is pretty interesting, too.

I'm still not sure which animal the womb came from, though.

When my family went to San Fransisco a few years back, we went to a dim sum place that was more "local" than "tourista". We ordered a bunch of stuff, and the kids insisted on trying the chicken feet.  The waitstaff refused to bring them to us.  Straight up "you don't want that...um, too much food for you!".  I assume they'd had less adventurous white folk accidentally order it and be mortified, and from then on there was an informal "don't sell the chicken feet dim sum to the white folk unless they ask for it in Mandarin" rule.  Oh well.  I was looking forward to trying it.

May I argue that in one of those practices, the primary goal is recreation, and in the other the primary goal is maximizing efficiency in providing people their sustenance?


Uhm, recreation or not, the vast majority of hunters I know eat what they kill, or donate to the local food shelters. Nothing is going to waste. Why shouldn't I enjoy killing my own food, if its fun and saves me a few hundred bucks? I butcher my own cattle, too, when I have money to go in on a whole half cow with someone.

dahmers love zombie: When my family went to San Fransisco a few years back, we went to a dim sum place that was more "local" than "tourista". We ordered a bunch of stuff, and the kids insisted on trying the chicken feet.  The waitstaff refused to bring them to us.  Straight up "you don't want that...um, too much food for you!".  I assume they'd had less adventurous white folk accidentally order it and be mortified, and from then on there was an informal "don't sell the chicken feet dim sum to the white folk unless they ask for it in Mandarin" rule.  Oh well.  I was looking forward to trying it.


Real Chinese food in SF was the highlight of our last trip there. I still salivate at the thought of it.

I submit that it's not the killing that is enjoyed, that's the price of the trip and is accepted/endured like the muscle ache after the gym. The enjoyment comes from being out in nature, testing your wits as a predator in an unfamiliar environment, and generally enjoying a radically different experience than the day to day.

I go out hunting, mostly because it supplements the groceries, and because I like being out away from people, technology, and other distractions, testing wit and patience. Don't always shoot something. Just like being out there. Likewise, I fish because I like being out and the meditation of doing it, not the actual catching itself.

Korzine: Ant: Bill_Wick's_Friend: Coat it with flour and corn starch. Deep. Fry for three minutes until it starts to turn brown. Remove from oil and chill. When cooled put in slow cooker with five spice, cinnamon, soy, ginger, crushed Thai chilies, rice wine and fish sauce.

Slow cooker on low for 8 hours.

Serves one not-very-hungry person.

Do you eat the bones? I've seen them at dim sum places, but I've never tried them.

No, you kind of suck the meat/skin off the bones and spit em out though I prefer ducks feet. Also, on the other end of the bird, ducks tongues also have bones in them so be careful if you order those too. Nearly broke a tooth on that discovery.

My idea of hunting. I was staying at a hotel on business in Olympia, Washington many years ago and I walked into the hotel bar and told the bartender that I had just shot a deer in the parking lot. She looked at me like I was a monster until I held up my camera and said, "Yeah, I must have shot him about ten or twelve times." She threw her bar towel at me.

Because that picture doesn't lower your food bill. If I bag a deer and get 60 lbs of meat from it, that's a nice payment for a few hours of doing something I enjoy.

I've never hunted, but I'm thinking about trying it next season. Lots of my friends hunt and they bring over some good meat.

poot_rootbeer: The only problem here is that boneless skinless chicken breasts are priced about 20 times higher than chicken feet, so if somebody bought that package they'd be paying way over market rate for that tasty, tasty, collageny foot.

Venison is delicious.  My uncle and aunt live in a medieval gameskeeper's cottage in Gloucestershire that backs onto a deer park, and they have a quiet arrangement with the local poachers.  They don't see anything, and every once in a while they get a nice haunch of venison.

Not to mention here.  What do you think good chicken stock is made of, lady, powdered chicken?

The only objection I'd have had to that is that it was probably priced as though the full weight was chicken breast.  Chicken feet are undoubtedly not as expensive per pound as actual chicken breast.

So, yeah, I'd say that shooting the wild turkey would be a shame, whereas killing a feed lot chicken would be a mercy.


On the off chance that you're not trolling, that is some messed up reasoning there my friend.
Let's walk through this and see if it plays out:

I'm hungry.  I go out and hunt down a mature wild turkey that has lived a fine life eating natural food and making baby turkeys.  He's dead before he hears the gunshot.  My family eats a nice lean organic bird that would have been killed in a much more violent manner by predators if I hadn't shot it.

Your hungry.  You go to the store and buy a packaged turkey that was hatched in an incubator and then after a couple of days has it's upper beak cut off so it can only eat prepared food pellets laced with antibiotics.  It then spends it's life in a windowless room packed with 10,000 other turkeys where bright lights shine 24/7 and it's denied it's natural instinct to roost and thus sleep. Your family eats an antibiotic laced freak of nature that lived a miserable and pathetic short life and wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for nancys like you who lack the skills to be self sufficient.

Shame on me for killing that wild turkey.
Kudos to you for buying that farm raised turkey.

Mmmm, chicken feet in garlic...tasty, tasty dim sum.

The first time I ever saw a deer hanging after a hunt was when I made the connection between real animals and those nice, sanitary, plastic-wrapped packages in the grocery store.  "Ahhhh...that's meat."  I'm OK with it.  I am grateful that I don't have to kill and butcher animals myself, because I'm not sure I could actually do it, but I can appreciate the connection between the living thing and the food it becomes.

ZeroCorpse: Sid_6.7: On the one hand, she's a dumb b*tch.

OTOH, if I were a manager, I'd be concerned about what else the workers aren't paying attention to if a chicken foot ended up in a pack of breasts.

That stuff is prepacked and shipped to stores. A machine probably placed the food in the package, and another machine probably wrapped it.


Did a machine put it on the shelf? I would expect employees to at least glance at a row of packages to make sure it looks good before leaving it for customers.

Well, the wild turkey there exists in nature.  The mass produced chickens, on the other hand, exist only because we grow them for food.

So, yeah, I'd say that shooting the wild turkey would be a shame, whereas killing a feed lot chicken would be a mercy.

On the off chance that you're not trolling, that is some messed up reasoning there my friend.

Well, that's my point.  They wouldn't exist if not to be killed.   They exist in an artificial world that we created because they are food.

Wild birds?  They exist because, well, just because they exist.  They exist in nature.  Their lives don't belong to us, so, to me, taking them from nature seems a bit more depressing.

Booooorn freeeee, as free as he wiiiind bloooows!

And sure, feed lot animals live horrible "lives."  But I try not to empathize too much with my food.  I already empathize with wild animals.  But with my food?  I'd have to become a vegan.

fark, the Chinese would gnaw on those things like they were candy.  Chicken's foot soup is pretty farking tasty, but I usually left the foot alone unless I was hungover.

Pickled goose foot was a little harder to get used to, since it was raw and had been pickled, so the skin was all soft and swollen.  And you were supposed to let it all dissolve in your mouth and then spit out the bones.  I managed it, but it wasn't one of my favorites.

In Colombia they make a caldo(broth) with the feet, head, liver, gizzard, and heart.  It is generally an appetizer but you can order a large bowl as a meal.  The bowl comes with a boiled egg floating in it.  I imagine it is a favorite of Dr. Lecters.

And it is delicious.

fnordfocus: dahmers love zombie: We ordered a bunch of stuff, and the kids insisted on trying the chicken feet.  The waitstaff refused to bring them to us.  Straight up "you don't want that...um, too much food for you!".  I assume they'd had less adventurous white folk accidentally order it and be mortified, and from then on there was an informal "don't sell the chicken feet dim sum to the white folk unless they ask for it in Mandarin" rule.  Oh well.  I was looking forward to trying it.

Next time, try Mountain View or the East Bay.  You should be able to get all of the chicken feet and weird baby squid you can eat.

Try  http://hkeo.us/gallery/dimsum.html, and then stop by Trader Vic's on your way back to the freeway for a little bit too much rum.

Mountain View has a high concentration of Asian residents, and therefore a farkload of reasonably authentic Asian restaurants.

It also has a lot less hipsters and tourists, so they're more likely to just give you what you ask for instead of assuming you'll get mad and refuse to pay.

Hell, other than the chicken heads, that almost sounds like something a Southern fella could get into :D  (Keep in mind that most chicken places around here SELL chicken livers and gizzards (literally the only two "chicken" places I know of that don't sell livers are Raising Cane's and Chick-Fil-A, and you can usually find the hearts at the store too.)

Assuming those are actual feral pigs and not javelina, I'm kind of surprised your state DFW hasn't up and classified them formally as varmints allowing no-limit no-tag hunting all year (they ARE legally classified as varmints here, and hunters not only don't need tags but are actively encouraged to kill as many as they can); hell, there's states that are actually talking about offering bounties for the things because they're so invasive and damaging to the local flora and fauna.

Psycoholic_Slag: poot_rootbeer: davidphogan: If hunting is cruel what the fark is factory farming?

May I argue that in one of those practices, the primary goal is recreation, and in the other the primary goal is maximizing efficiency in providing people their sustenance?

I'm not getting it.  Are you suggesting that shooting this in it's natural environment is cruel:

But raising these in this environment and running them through a mass producing slaughter house is not cruel?

Please clarify.


It's a difficult question.

fnordfocus: o'really: Why mountain view? That seems so random when sf is packed with chinese restaurants.

Mountain View has a high concentration of Asian residents, and therefore a farkload of reasonably authentic Asian restaurants.

It also has a lot less hipsters and tourists, so they're more likely to just give you what you ask for instead of assuming you'll get mad and refuse to pay.


Well thats weird reasoning. There are far more chinese in sf, and theres a huge variety of Chinese restaurants. That one spot was an anomaly in their behavior. If you are gonna go for percentage of Chinese people, why not Cupertino?

Now if you knew of a good dim sum spot in mtn view, that would be different, and I'd be glad to hear it.

vbob: balut

A balut is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell..

/Filipino food


I tried to do balut. Made it thru the yolk, with feathers attached. Chickened out at the fetus :(

You'll get over it.

In one.  What a sorry biatch of a snowflake she is.


I have no issue with chicken feet (never had 'em, but they sound like glorified wings, and I like me some wings), but if something that shouldn't be in the package is in the package, and that package is  meat...uh, yeah, time to let someone know. It's kind of important that proper food safety standards are maintained, unless food poisoning sounds fun to you.

/That said, still a douche for going to  Twitter of all places instead of asking an employee to handle the problem
//And Safeway,  what the fark, don't leave that out for consumers to buy.

gaspode: This kind of thing pisses me off. People should see what they are eating and understand it. Anyone who find sa chicken foot repulsive should be a vegan or some shiat.

That said, chicken breast is expensive, feet are very cheap, and meat handling is important as people can die. It says pretty bad things about the standards in this shop, and would make me question everything packed there.. is it what it says it is, is the weight right, is the kind of dumbass who puts that in there following hygeine rules?


This. Everyone is jumping straight to the OMG STUPID biatch DONT KNOW FOOD IS ANIMALS. but something thats not supposed to be in the package being in the package speaks to lazy packaging standards. Theyve farked up this what else have they farked up? yeah wah who cares its a foot. But other worse things could have ended up in there too that could kill someone.

I've always considered the foot the best part. After digesting a helping of the stringy breast meat, there will inevitably be a piece stuck somewhere in my teeth...the toenails make a great toothpick.

/Bonus Slash- When barbequed, the toes will actually curl up around the rack and therefore will not fall into the fire.

Yes, but while we're speaking of science-fiction authors, let me put in a plug for  Jack McDevitt, another author of "hard" science fiction, who doesn't get the attention I think he deserves.

WTF?! IT'S A FOOT!!!

It's what that chicken stood on for a few months, in a wire cage coated in CHICKEN SHIAT. That foot was marinated in putrid chicken shiat week-after-week before being lovingly packed by Safeway with the tender chicken breasts. That foot added a unique piquant flavor of FECES to that package of bland chicken breasts. She really should expect to pay twice as much for that exotic extra flavoring.

Seriously, you farkers who eat shiat-soaked chicken feet are nuts. You might as well eat your own feces.

In other words - yes, chicken have feet, but they shiat all over their feet. I don't want their shiat-soaked feet on my dinner plate, thanks.

oh, shut your stawman up.

Producers of battery farmed animals know that the whole animal was covered in shiat, during the slaughter there was shiat everywhere, and unavoidably, all over the meat - they *gasp* WASH everything before it gets sent out. Seriously.

In many cultures that package would be considered a lucky find!

Really? You actually trust meat processors to properly sterilize the chicken appendages that spend their entire lives marinating in shiat?

Enjoy your shiat-soaked chicken toes, sucker.

"Enjoy your shiat-soaked chicken toes, sucker...."

Let me guess... you like beefburgers, eh? Hmmm... succulant all-beef patties...

So you're happy to eat cows eyelids, ears, lips and anus (technically, they're all beef!), but shy away from what are obviously cleaned chicken feet?

Ho hum!

Satanic_Hamster: If I were the Safeway manager, I'd have a promotion:
Next week, free fried chicken feet being served as samples all weekend.


Wouldn't work. Shop would just be swarmed by free-chicken-feet-seeking-Asians-people who then go home without buying anything from the shop.

Don't know what's the problem, deep-fried chicken feet are standard street food in the Philippines (nicknamed "Adidas"):

If you think that's bad, try asking for "helmet" ;-)

You can buy them by the pound in any US grocery store near an 'Asian community.' Not cheap, either.

My grandmother used to get free chicken feet from the butcher and make soup.
That was during the depression in the 30's.

JesseL: Psycoholic_Slag: JesseL: Danger Avoid Death: Psycoholic_Slag: Sid_6.7: Psycoholic_Slag: Shame on me for killing that wild turkey.
Kudos to you for buying that farm raised turkey.

Pro-tip:

If everyone who wanted a turkey went out and hunted it, there would be none left for you, no matter how much an ITG you are.

I propose to you that if everyone who wanted a turkey had to go out and hunt it, most people would cease to eat turkey.

If next you tell me I have to hunt my own bacon, I'm gonna cry.

I desperately wish I legally could hunt the little piggies constantly running through my yard.

[i100.photobucket.com image 800x600]

Ohhhh man!  Why can't you hunt those tasty little destructive bastards?  You know, there ARE ways to be all ninja about it.

Legally speaking they're big game animals that you need a tag to hunt, and I'm inside city limits (right on the edge though).

I should probably get a bow.


Crossbow, back yard shed, no one's the wiser.

Perhaps they could properly sterilize them if they intended to package them... but a foot that still has nails and skin somehow making it through the process for skinless boneless breasts?  That doesn't inspire confidence at all.  It would have to skip most of those steps, so why would any cleaning procedures be any more reliable?
Multiple things have to go wrong and no system or person noticed at the company or the store.  The packages likely have other inaccuracies, and that's bad regardless of whether it is still 'food'.  Restaurants end up in articles all the time for mislabeled foods that are still edible food - misidentified fish, beef or pork where it shouldn't be, food that isn't kosher, etc.
Also the reality just is that most of their customers won't want that, whether they are grossed out or not.  If they're buying breasts they probably want breasts - the feet are cheaper for a reason, and not nearly so common a purchase here.

Don't people generally cook chicken before eating it? Which has a side-effect of killing any stray bacteria?

Unless raw-chicken-foot sushi has caught on while I wasn't looking.....

vsavatar: Yet another person who can't come to terms with the fact that her food was a living and breathing creature at one point.  If you can't stand the thought of eating an animal, then don't eat them.  Don't pick and choose parts and sanitize the thought that what you're eating used to be alive.


I pick and choose parts. Tripe looks revolting.

Most states consider wild hogs to be kill on site, generally don't even need a hunting license.

Though, you stated in another post you're inside city limits, so there might be some discharging of firearms problems.   Forget about a bow; get a decent crossbow.  You don't want to piss one of those things off.

Might also want to talk to the city of about what your legal options are, if they can be considered a nuisance or danger to your family.  A lot of places will get you a bit more leeway for dealing with dangerous or destructive wild animals if you ask.
