Well, Stewy took a nice hot soak today. I seasoned him generously with salt & pepper and placed him in a Dutch oven with celery, garlic and about 12 oz of white wine, covered, in the oven for 3 hours at 300 degrees (F). 20 minutes with the lid off to crisp up the skin. The flavor was amazing - like I remembered from childhood when grandma raised chickens. We were happy with the end result, though I think a lower temp would yield a better result- white meat dried out a bit, as did the first layer of meat on the legs. Otherwise it was delicious. I served it with maple roasted butternut squash from our garden. Quite pleasing to eat a “raised your own” meal.
