For those who ordered tools: I have confirmation that tools have been purchased and will be packed today (in China) and shipped to me tomorrow. I don't have a tracking number yet.
I put some capons in the freezer yesterday. For those who have not butchered capons yet, I wanted to share some photos of the wonderful marbling of fat you'll see on capons. They're perfect for roasting (even the smaller ones), as the fat layer makes the meat juicy and tender. This one was about four pounds. He was hard to fit into a freezer bag. I'll probably do the next batch at 3.5 pounds.
